I painted this in the summer, right around the time of having to read “Brave New World” for a psyche class I was taking. Wasn’t crazy about either class but reading this book gave me all sorts of wacky ideas and this was the result, “Happy Man”. Who wouldn’t want to run around with a TV in their hat that was always broadcasting nothing but happy thoughts and images. Size is 18×24.
This started out as just a head with a “tv hat” and then I decided to squeeze in a body, that may explain why he is a bit short and of course once again, I left off 2 fingers on each hand, a mistake I decided not to fix.
