book paintings by LA based artist Mike Stilkey
Los Angeles native Mike Stilkey has always been attracted to painting and drawing not only on vintage paper, record covers and book pages, but on the books themselves. Using a mix of ink, colored pencil, paint and lacquer, Stilkey depicts a melancholic and at times a whimsical cast of characters inhabiting ambiguous spaces and narratives of fantasy and fairy tales.
So if you want to be with me
With these things there’s no telling
We just have to wait and see
But I’d rather be working for a paycheck
Than waiting to win the lottery
Besides maybe this time is different
I mean I really think you like me

IF THIS ZIT DOESN’T GO AWAY BY FRIDAY I’M HONESTLY GOING TO FLIP THE FUCK OUT.
When you do something noble and beautiful and nobody noticed, do not be sad. For the sun every morning is a beautiful spectacle and yet most of the audience still sleeps.
John Lennon (via david)
Every one interprets everything in terms of his own experience. If you say anything which does not touch a precisely similar spot in another man’s brain, he either misunderstands you, or doesn’t understand you at all.

THERE AIN’T NOTHING GOOD ON TV NO MORE. FALCON CREST, THAT WAS A SHOW. KNOT’S LANDING. GOOD OLD DYNASTY.
WHAT IS THIS SHOW, EVEN? SIXTEEN AND PREGNANT? SHIT, THAT AIN’T IMPRESSIVE. I HAD FOURTEEN KIDS BY THE TIME I WAS FIVE.
