The challenge was
Submit your freakiest, filthiest designs to the Lowbrow challenge!
What’s the lowdown on Lowbrow?
Lowbrow art (otherwise known as “pop surrealism”) describes an underground, edgy, visual art movement that arose in Los Angeles in the late ‘70s. Think underground comics, punk music, John Waters’ Pink Flamingos, Camille Rose Garcia’s gothic, creepy cartoon-style paintings, Ed “Big Daddy” Roth’s iconic “Rat Fink” - or that tattoo your dad got when he was in the Navy.
Defining characteristics of Lowbrow generally include influence from underground “street” culture, a semi-sick sense of humor, anti-heroes, elements of retro pop culture, comically grotesque caricatures; basically anything that’ll freak your parents out.
You can pull inspiration for your Lowbrow design from classic cartoons, hot-rods, pin-ups, pulp art, B-movies, pop culture combined with poor taste - the list goes on. Take a deep look inside the nastiest part of your noggin, draw on your pencil mustache and give us your filthiest, fun designs!
