They’re just like candy!

They're just like Candy

They’re just like Candy

When I was growing up I had a t-shirt that featured anime hero ‘Akira’ with a pill on his tongue and the legend ‘They’re just like candy”. For some reason this has percolated in my mind over the years (update: I’ve now found the image and it’s at the bottom of the post) and it’s recently found a way to get out again.

We’ve done a similar piece to this one before and whilst it was in the studio waiting to be sent to its new owner, somebody else popped by and after seeing it commissioned us to paint something similar for him. We were a little reluctant to start with but after the client stated they didn’t want the QR codes of DJ mixes but instead wanted us to come up with some new text we thought we’d proceed with it.

So, there you have it. Pac Man munching through his power pills and enjoying them like a bad little Akira.

This is your canvas on drugs

I’m not sure how many people will remember the ‘This is your brain on drugs‘ anti-drugs campaign that was part of America’s War on Drugs campaign and was widespread on American TV in the 80’s but that was pretty much my inspiration for this piece.

Come on kids – see if you can work out how many drug reference I managed to get into the bottom part! That is if your brains aren’t scrambled from all the high powered skunk you’ve been smoking!

Cheers
