Walking down the boardwalk at Venice Beach I noticed a poster of Marilyn Monroe covered in tattoos. At the time I'd been talking to a few people about Ted Cruz coming to town and we wanted to greet him with a street poster. It's hard for me to pitch such an idea so I simply drafted this illustration up and presented it to the team. The response wasn't the kind that justified getting any sort of backing from the group to produce it so I took it upon myself to do it. 25 posters later and a night out on the street, the rest is history.
I'm not big on patting myself on the back but I have to say that before this poster had you asked me what I thought of Ted Cruz I might have told you that he was known for standing his ground but as far as personality I would not have given him much thought. I believe with this image I managed to pull the inner bad ass that is his fighting spirit. Had the match not fit I don't think the image would resonate with his supporters the way it has.
For the record Mr. Cruz had absolutely noting to do with the creation of this image. I didn't ask for his blessing, approval, opinion, nothing. I bothers me that people have tried tying me to his waist in hopes of damaging his reputation because of some of my more racy art pieces.
