Inspiration Station – James Hance, Relentlessly Cheerful Art.

Anyone who has been in existance since 1980-something and has had visual awareness of the world around them needs to go to this site: James Hance, Relentlessly Cheerful Art.

You will find your chlidhood, slightly modified and kept with artistic integrity.  You will find wonderfully crafted sketches and doodles.  You will be filled with squee’s of artistic glee.

I recently stumbled upon James Hance on Facebook via another friend, and I am SO GLAD I did!  WOW — talk about modern art that is wonderfully on point, technically crisp, beautifully colored with tongue-in-cheek wit and hue.

His Wookie-the-Chew series is a delightful romp through pop culture… the pormonteau’d results of A. A. Milne and George Lucas’ love child.  Images such as this tickle your funny bone and also allow you to give an inner “Dawwwwwww…”  (And really, who couldn’t use more of that?)

I would challenge anyone to go to his archive linked above and NOT find something you remember.

Go forth, artistic adventurers! Find James.  Find your own inner, relentlessly cheerful doodler artist, and start a sketch quest.  May the force be with Chew.
