Pink Thing of The Day: Gut Guy!

Gut Guy

Hey what’s up. Have you seen those Xifaxan commercials with the little animated wad of intestines? Whenever I see that commercial, I want to barf, because he is made to personify diarrhea. Hilariously, I recently found out that the Intestines Man is actually called Gut Guy, and — surprise! — he was created by an artist whom I actually know in real life: Jim McKenzie. Actually, Jim is not the sole creator of Gut Guy, but he contributed in the design process, which was a group effort with his team at Aardman Nathan Love!

While looking at Gut Guy still makes me feel queasy,  I am so happy for Jim, who is also known as the New York Art Scene’s Favorite Teen Idol, because he is just so super talented, quite clever and adorable, not to mention, but you can see I am about to, very easy on the eyes.

Jim and Gut Guy

Look at that face. I took this photo of Jim at a recent art opening. You can see he is quite proud of Gut Guy, even wearing a pin of its likeness on his jacket lapel. See more of the art of Jim McKenzie at Jim McKenzie Dot Net!
