COAT OF SMILES, parody art of iconic symbols. A duck's hat, a mouse's ears and a smiling yellow button. Three iconic things brought together in one artwork.

Ferrari F17 Land-To-Air Motörhead

Part two of my Ferrari series: This bird controlled land-to-air Ferrari jet-skull displays the essence of my design style pretty well, I guess. Like André Franquin meets Carl Barks meets George Lucas meets Jim Henson meets Jules Verne meets Red Bull.

BTW, the photo (see end of the post) is a snapshot of one of the test flights the Ferrari F17 made from here - across the Atlantic - to the Swiss-Miss studio in NYC. Nice view Tina and her studiomates have, no? (Photo via The Brander)
