Lowbrow Art takes its imagery from cartoons , consumer packaging, girlie magazines, big-eyed kitsch, and space-age bachelor pad nostalgia, then combines them into surreal and often nightmarish compositions that appeal to the lowest common denominator in all of us.

Wow. I was stoked when I saw Robert Williams and Ed Roth among the artists on the first site, but they were just the tip of the proverbial iceberg. Nice set a links Bali.

I find the idea that someone would pay $1300 for Monkey Rape extremely disturbing.

I'm a big fan of Robt. Williams; even bought some RW trading cards! Art Juxtapoz magazine is a good source for this sort of stuff.
