Check out actor/musician/artist John Lurie’s artwork.  One of the most famous, “Bear Surprise”, has been a bit of a phenomenon in Russia.  His work tends to be part children’s story book, part “Far Side” comic strip. 

John also did the cult classic “Fishing with John”, featuring such guests as Jim Jarmusch, Dennis Hopper, Willem Dafoe and Tom Waits.  Here’s a clip.

Some pieces may be NSFW, but certainly worth your time.

    Great find.  I loved ‘Fishing With John’.

    Thanks, I’ve been wondering where that goofy bear originated. It’s been all over the place!
