Crunch Crunch Crunch, Saturday Cartoons with Bortusk Leer

Since it’s Saturday and you are still in your pajamas and on your third bowl of sugar coated vampire cookie cereal, here’s a look at Bortusk Leers cartoons.  The Street Artist has a whole posse of monsters and characters that splurp and plop and zing out of his imagination onto sheets of old newspaper with a child’s paint brush and florescent non-toxic paint that is safe to eat.

The wheatpastes on New York streets look so guileless and unaffected that you might also think his work is simple and unstudied.  Truth is Bortusk is deliberate in his depictions of their crazy disproportions and he likes to poke fun at his creatures and play with the viewer.  Luckily for the artist and kids, he also learned how to animate his monsters and his inventive short stories have an audience on TV and the web too.
