Once Upon a Time There Was a No-Good, Very Bad, President.

Once upon a time, there was a no-good, very bad, president. And Trump was worse than that.

We have a history of showing our ugly things here at Mad Art Lab. Ugly paintings lead to good ones, is the very basic message of that effort. Ya gotta start somewhere. Ya gotta practice. You must be brave as an artist and know that to produce something beautiful you must understand what is truly ugly and why you should show your work. Today, I present you with the ugliest painting yet. It’s the final piece in my “Failed Experiments aka Monsters Within” series of paintings for Silicon Valley Comic Con. And it’s ugly. On purpose.

This is a portrait of a selfish, spoiled, arrogant, uneducated, man in power. A man who leaves a path of destruction, lies and pain in his wake. A man that intelligent people wish would simply turn to dust. My personal hope is that this very bad, no-good, human, will soon leave his post and better people will have learned from his awful behavior and lead the future world to a peaceful, healthy place for all of humanity and living things. I still have hope… and ugly paintings.

I’m off to resin coat this mofo.
