I recently discovered the work of artist Michael Gaughan after he launched a new site and I really love what he does. The Minnesota-based artist, illustrator and performer creates beautifully made and terrifically witty watercolor paintings that mix parody and satire in a fantastically entertaining way.

Over the years Gaughan has worked for clients such as Andrew WK, American Apparel and Flaunt Magazine. He has also exhibited in cities such as from Rotterdam, New York, LA and Portland. Under the name ICE ROD he performace a project where he freestyle raps on Chatroulette with an audience. Make sure to check that out here and also visit his new site here.
