McMonster A street walking cheetah with a heart full of napalm. McMonster uses a mix of highlighter guts and water colors to create surreal worlds in which make you think to yourself “maybe I shouldn’t have taken that last hit of acid.” Taking images from nature, science fiction, lovely lady parts and a tiny man named Mike, McMonster blends these themes into a cocktail of psychedelic adventures that will leave you thirsty for more. You can see more of his work on Instagram @mc_monster and website: www.genuinelywhatever.com
