It's Not Easy
It’s rare to find a set of art that’s a combination of adorable, heartwarming, and humorous. Chris Gerringer, however, is here to start our weekend right, with over 20 illustrations of characters we’ve grown to love, bonding over some shared misfortune. The “I Know That Feel, Bro” series borrows its title from a meme made popular on the video game board on 4chan and, for better or worse, made its way out to Reddit, Tumblr, and just about every major social network.
Last of the Race
While the phrase may be watered down and a little overused, Gerringer breathes new life in it with his particular spin. Each illustration is a quirky little puzzle until viewers put together why the two characters are having a little moment. Some are easy to put together, like The Hulk and Kermit the Frog’s reason for bro-fisting it out, while others take a little longer to piece together, like Sonic and Captain Planet. With over 40 characters commiserating, though, it’s hard not to find a few favorites, even for the most stone hearted among us.
Video game characters, comic book characters, and some of our favorite cartoon characters are in the mix of these bittersweet little portraits. Gerringer has made plenty and combined some really clever choices. Looking through them is a total ball, but if somehow you’re not a fan of the series, his website and DeviantArt are filled to the brim with awesome pieces outside the theme.
Below is a slideshow of some of our favorites, but be sure to check out his site, Paperbeatsscissors
