Engrish Fleedom by Kid-Apocalypse Engrish Fleedom by Kid-Apocalypse
In Japanese, there is no 'l' sound. So sometimes when Japanese ads use English, they mix up 'r's and 'l's. This is part of what "Engrish" is. With that said, feel free to interpret this as you please.


Technical notes: The only things in this that were not made with an airbrush tool are the text, the wall, and the border. I figured that it belongs in airbrushings because of the sheer amount of work and pain I went through to airbrush everything else. ;p Best part of this thing is that I did in all in one day.

:flattered!: This is definitely one of my favorite pieces. I think it was worth going to all the trouble to airbrush everything. I'm starting to learn how to use different mediums instead of treating them all like different kinds of pens....
What was your interpretation of it? I keep thinking it's something slightly political, but I don't know why.

*thinks* I suppose the obvious interpretation of it is that it is easy to misinterpret something, or corrupt the original meaning. Following that tangent, I suppose that anything political coudl come from the way Japanese culture is incorrectly portrayed in America- easily twisted. Then I suppose the media does the same thing- twist facts to suit their opinions, and only show what they want you to know. And I had another thought but I lost it.

:D I'm glad I asked you. You're so good at finding meanings when all I can see is that something is meaningful.

Which means you must be REALLY profound. But at least you know you are profound, and not just saying obscure things in an attempt to be.

Hahahahaha.
I went to the grocery store with my friend Nick (Pence) on Christmas Eve to get some stuff for his parents. The thing was, it was just us two (he drove). So yeah, we're walking down the aisles together getting groceries, and everyone is staring at us... then we realized after a while:
"OH MY GOD, THEY THINK WE'RE GAY."

Did I tell you about the time that I was in English class, and we were reading a story about a guy freezing to death on the Alaskan frontier, and the moment our teacher said the word "Yukon," this cheerleader yells, "Oh!!! My daddy drives a Yukon!!!"

The answer is yes. There are people that stupid.

This is the same girl who asked "Who's that?" when she saw a picture of Hitler. Oh, and the same girl that said "It's when you get the grill of a truck and have a party!" when asked in Driver's Ed what tailgating was. And the same girl that said, "Oh, I hate slutty white trash girls that think they're all that."

Needless to say, each time the class had no choice but to laugh.

Stories like that make me wonder if I really care about the nonethicalness of human culling.

Yes, indeedy. I drew the concept, which is hilariously BAD (slightly on purpose) and then went on and did the whole thing.
