Shout it Out Loud, Greg Kletsel, Illustrator.


This piece by Brooklyn-based illustrator Greg Kletsel (come on, 3 out of every 5 illustrators is Brooklyn-based) is my kind of nostalgia. Not that I care about or was ever very good at video games, but I do like his take on the lonely existence and eternal interests (pizza, comics, sports) of the typical American male teenager. Whether it’s 1993, 1973, or 1953, that is a universal truth.

Oh, did I mention I like the rest of his work? Dumb questions are part of my lonely existence as a typical American, middle aged, hipster doofus. Shout it out loud!

    Greg Kletsel actually has a great drawn interview over on Doodlers Anonymous that’s full of classic references. A good read for sure:
