“30 Days of Jerk” Pop Culture Painting Series by Jerkface

New York artist Jerkface recently completed his epic “30 Days of Jerk” painting series. For 30 straight days throughout December and January Jerkface painted a different pop culture inspired painting. While the idea of doing a 30 day run of artwork is not original, Jerkface’s goal was to bring a fun and creative take on some legendary cartoon and comic strip characters. And boy did he! Every day The Blot made sure to visit Jerkface’s Instagram account to find out which character he used.

What’s great about “30 Days of Jerk” is how Jerkface integrated his signature Jerks into paintings with beloved characters like Oscar the Grouch, Richie Rich, Spongebob Squarepants, Futurama’s Bender, Garfield and Family Guy’s Stewie. Jerkface serious cherry picked some of the greatest characters from television cartoons, comic strips, comic books and Sesame Street. Each painting carries the same theme, and yet is so different. I’m especially blown away by Jerkface’s line work! I can’t believe how tight each painting is considering they’re painted with a brush.

So far Jerkface has released 6 prints, each with super small run sizes of 6 or 3 pieces. These prints measure 13”x13” (including a 1” boarder), come signed and numbered, and retail for $100.
