I wanted to start the first wallpaper of 2009 off right, so I decided my roommate Garrett Vander Leun deserved the honor, since he’s an amazing illustrator and my BFF. Garrett was asked to do a piece by this college magazine called Algemeen Nijmeegs Studentenblad, the theme being about tall vs. small people, or something like that. So Garrett dug into his past and came up with some of his favorite characters from movies and TV, and pitted them in this epic battle.
I think my favorite parts are Jen cutting up Andre the Giant, who in turn doesn’t give a shit and continues to beat on the coroner from Wizard of Oz. My other part is Hagrid who is almost accidentally crushing the Mayor of Oz, that dude is getting straight up MANGLED!
ANS also did an interview with Garrett which, if you’re luck enough to be able to read Dutch, you can check out by clicking here. If you don’t read Dutch though, +KN reader Thomas Vanhuyse was awesome enough to translate it to English. It’s definitely an odd little interview, so be sure to check it out, it’s a good time.
