Chet Childress is the truth.
« on: December 04, 2014, 09:26:35 PM »
Not sure if any you guys saw these artist vids of Chet, they're nicely made. Most importantly, I just really like his view of the world, dark, cynical, jaded but raw with don't give a fuck attitude.

Here is the link for the videos. The vids are exclusive to the complex site for some reason, part one and two are worth watching though.

I thought we could keep this a Chet Childress appreciation thread rather than just posting this under photos/videos.

Enjoy.

That was tight!  Reminded me of Epicly Later'd but a little more produced, but also a little less produced because he mostly just ranted instead of specific topics or questions.

Crazy to think I had Chet autograph a T-shirt at the first demo I ever went to in 1998.  I still have it, too!

It says "appreciation", so let's. His art really puzzles me, it's nice to know that it's just doodles in the end... or is it? If anything, Chet has something going for himself that makes me really want to be more like him.

He's what made me want to do blunt back disasters. I can't do them with the cool pop though.
