June 23rd - July 1st, 2009

Michael Jackson

Ed McMahon

Karl Malden

Billy Mays

June 23rd through July 1st saw the passing of several popular American icons including Michael Jackson and Farrah Fawcett (both on June 25th). These deaths -- which monopolized the mainstream media for weeks to follow -- spawned a series of Sharpie drawings characterizing each individual. I chose to depict Michael pre-surgery because I hated the way his beauty was destroyed by his desire to transform into himself God-knows-what through numerous needless plastic surgeries.
