Portfolio Review: Alex Pardee

TIGER BLOOD, 2011
Ink & Digital

Alex Pardee says: "A week ago, if I drew a picture of Charlie Sheen with a bloody tiger-hat, it would have been looked at as complete nonsense. But by Sheen saying a few silly lines in an interview, he turned something that meant absolutely nothing into something that was ICONIC!

ON CREATING A CUSTOM PIECE FOR SHEEN'S KORNER
"Even though I was on the sidelines watching for a train wreck with everyone else, I felt a creative urge to jump on that train with him for a moment. I created the 'Tiger Blood' piece for no other reason than that it was fun. But because of the infinite power of the Internet, Charlie saw this piece and he loved it! He had me actually create a brand new exclusive piece for his Ustream show, 'Sheen’s Korner' and he debuted it on his broadcast this last Tuesday. Yes, it’s been a surreal week."
