mcbess: cartoon art of bearded men, busty women, and some dead pirates
January 28, 2013 8:12 PM   Subscribe

Welcome to mcbess, a land of odd illustrations in black and white*, something of a dark and dingy take on Merry Melodies, where the men are bearded, and the ladies are toothy, busty (and often topless, in a vaguely NSFW cartoony way). There are also some large-scale illustrations with all those elements, and more. Matthieu Bessudo, aka mcbess, is also in a band, The Dead Pirates, and his art and music met with the video Wood (Vimeo; also on YouTube; more info here).

There's also a mc bess YouTube channel, with a rather random assortment of videos, including time-lapse illustration videos

Bonus videos: mcbess drawing live for inkygoodness 4 "PLAY" (another timelapse illustration); an ad for Deezer, featuring *colored illustrations by mcbess and CRCR; Spine TV interviews McBess; McBess, State of an Industry; The Mill's mcbess at Pictoplasma Festival Berlin 2011; The Mill's mcbess paints the Berlin Wall

"I vaz invited to draw a character from Tekken, I chose Julia because of the breast area"

This is in fact how many young artists begin their journey.

Julia's sloth arms are sort of freaking me out. Otherwise I am enjoying this.

Princess Bubblegum, please put you clothes back on! I mean okay, but it's a royal function, the Ice King is around and I think Finn'll get jealous.

Don't forget his entertaining, sexy, and probably NSFW commercial for Good Books International.

Not only is that Good Books ad awesome, the site itself seems to be awesome. I just ordered a book!
