I made these two pieces of work for a friend of mine who was putting on a music festival. These are both local people from my hometown.
The Character on the left is a man by the name of Donald Cecil Owens A.K.A. the General Ambassador to the Universe...and yes he would tell you this himself no fucking shit. We just called him the "The General" for short. The idea was to immortalize this fellow in the...ways similar to the Shepard Fairy "HOPE" poster considering, The General's catch phrase was "I got it made!" Hence MADE down at the bottom. That is the shortend version and plus you can't here my horrible impression of the guy so I will spare details unless asked.
The Policeman is another fellow from Fayetteville he was one of the two police officers in the town at the time. He used to confiscate adolescent's skateboards and charge the parents to come and pick them up. His name is Tunny and he used to be a boxer in the late 50s. No this is kinda of crazy but, believe it or not but Tunny's first boxing match was against Cassius Clay or others know him as Muhammad Ali one of Boxing's greatest.
So there ya go.
