Dax Norman is a contemporary artist who primarily works in painting and animation. Norman creates slippery, tripped-out characters and the psychedelic landscapes in which they reside, thrive and lose their minds. Rarely does he create a totally new piece from scratch; he prefers a symbiotic cycle, reappropriating his own work in a neverending pursuit of perfection. His paintings, GIFs and animations evoke heady hallucinogenic trips.

Derek Ercolano was born and bred in New York. His detailed and delicate style of drawing has embraced the city’s vibrancy and results in distinctive series of colorful comical illustrations. He does a lot of these weirdo drawings of random characters, with melting faces and riding hoverboards and basically tripping out in every conceivable way.

Man Changes his name to “They” to be ironic to people overusing “they”, as in “they do this”. “We” dont really get it.
