WTF with Marc Maron

sg
WTF with Marc Maron is one of my favorite podcasts, one of the handful I find essential enough to pay for--Maron interviews with people from the world of comedy, of all stripes, and he's an excellent interviewer. There's been numerous times when his guest I someone I never found funny, but made for a captivating interview subject.

Today is Maron's birthday, and he's very generous with praise towards people who have sent him artwork related to the show. The idea for this piece--Maron ranting on the mike while a word cloud surrounds him--popped into my head, so I set about to getting it down as perfectly realized as possible. It was fun coming up with all those words and cramming them into every conceivable nook and cranny.

I sent this to the show, I hope Marc likes it!


Update: By Popular Request, this poster is available as a 10x15" print on my Etsy store! You can order one right here: WTF with Marc Maron poster.

Awesome piece of art for a great podcast! I hope Marc likes it. It really turned out great.

Where are clients out there who aren't using great art like this? You'd think they'd be lining up banging down your door.

Stupid clients.

Thanks! I was really happy with this one, if I do say so myself...

Maron wrote me back and said "That's awesome!" and told me he's going to tweet the pic! Looking forward to that.

And yes, stupid, stupid clients!

Maron's podcast is one of the few I listen to, as well. And this is a perfect piece for him, absolutely.

And Happy Birthday to Marc!

This piece is awesome, but you might want to add borders to the caption at the bottom...the letters bleed into the background, hard to read.

That is so spot on. Well done!

Do you sell prints of your work other than the 2 that are on Zazzle? I can't be the only one who wants this WTF print.
