Bob Plissken's Illustrations Show That You And The Grim Reaper Could Be BFFs
3 de abril de 2018Ariel Rodriguez
How often do you get to laugh at your struggles and the many times you bite the dust? Let the Grim Reaper help you out.
Death is that buddy who follows you everywhere and never lets you forget he's there. You see him on your clothes, on the awesome street art next to your favorite coffee shop, and even in your favorite TV shows like
Are we afraid of death? Yes, we are, but we also can't help laughing at him and with him. He's the perfect foil that allows us to laugh at the challenges and life issues we face, from crummy co-workers to that long-term relationship that's falling into pieces. Irony and sarcasm are the perfect antidote to a crappy day and Plissken knows this, which is no wonder he has over 60 thousand followers on Instagram. The Grim Reaper has become an extension of Plissken's dark humor, and he is able to speak his mind through him without holding back.
There's nowhere left to escape from. Now I spend my days escaping my demons through illustration. I currently reside on Earth.
"Fuck this, i'm out." How many times have you said this as you walk out of class or work? Plenty of times I guess. These illustrations are not for angry people that hate the world, but for people who poke fun at their own misery, because while they may be lying on the ground eating dust, they know one day they'll get back up again. That is life basically, so rather than choking on anger and smiling at your enemies, you open up and tell those who deserve it to "Fuck off."
If you like to laugh at your own misfortunes, then perhaps you need a few of his illustrations printed out as a reminder to grin as the dust grinds against your teeth. Life is terrible and shitty, so why not laugh at it?
