EVERYTHING HURTS.

Weezing.

I choose you -- Weezing! For Light Grey Art Lab's "Pokemon Battle Royale" show. If you're in or around Minneapolis, check out the show April 16 - May 11. This list of the 151 participating artists is absolutely incredible, so I'm sure it's going to be an amazing display.

It took me a while to decide what I wanted to do with Weezing, a shitty, farty, floating rock. After staring at it for a while, I figured its day-to-day must really suck, so I focused on conveying it as a ball of hot garbage covered in scabs who is in incredible discomfort through every moment of its existence. Yeah? Yeah.

If you want to own this piece... First of all, what's wrong with you? Secondly, I hope you put it in your kid's room. Thirdly, you can purchase it -- and any of the other pieces in the Battle Royale -- from Light Grey Art Lab for $40 once the show kicks off. I won't be doing any other prints of this, so consider it an original.

Also, also: Light Grey Art Lab currently has a Kickstarter campaign to raise money for a computer/print lab, which they will use to teach professional-level art and design to people in the community.
