Ren and Stimpy Mural, Bushwick

A couple of variable factors kept me from getting the best possible shot of this mural depicting two of my favorite cartoon characters — Ren and Stimpy — by graffiti artist Just Another Toy (@justanothertoy1). First, it was a very overcast day, and second, there were several vehicles parked at the curb, which obscured a full-on shot of the complete piece. That is for another day perhaps.

The pink tag placed between Ren and Stimpy is not vandalism  covering anything, but rather the artist’s signature, which figures prominently on most (read: all) of his pieces. The two other tags — Gold Poo and Hudson — refer to other street artists.

This piece (circa 2019) is part of the Bushwick Collective and is located on Scott Avenue between Troutman and Jefferson Streets.

Surreal Portraits of Fictional Female Icons By Ellannah Sadkin

Ellannah “Ella” Sadkin is a London-based artist who works primarily with acrylic and graffiti pens to produce colorful and abstract works. With its hard black lines, bright flat color and organic and geometric shapes, her style is often described as surrealist cartooning.

Sadkin was a child of the nineties and a huge cartoon fan, and cites early drawing of The Simpson’s characters as her first foray into cartooning.

As an adolescent growing up in New York, Sadkin was heavily influenced by the vibrant street graffiti scene. This later inspired her approach to composition, with large canvas pieces resembling graffiti murals in their layer-upon-layer approach.

Sadkin is a self-taught artist and lists Kaws as a primary influence. Her appropriation of cartoon aesthetics has been described as Ren and Stimpy on acid meets Takashi Murakami. Nice!
