Cartoon Carnage: Sam Gibbons

This artist based in Baltimore brings together elements taken from human sentiments like lust, greed, corruption, etc and mixes them in a cartoon debauchery that reminds me -in some cases- to the Aztec Calendar and the symbology associated with it. The emphasis on the symmetry creates an interesting psychedelic effect and his illustrations are reminiscent of the early work of cartoon artists. For your fucked up childhood memories: Sam Gibbons' cartoon art.
