Batman is pretty cool, but he does naughty stuff all the time.
Benjamin Phillip’s is an illustrator/poet/music man working out of Brighton, England. His work is a mixed bag of wizadry, sad children, wicked cool parties, and leaves. His illustrations all have an underlined witty sense of humor that seems very unique and bizarre.

In total, Andrew Novick estimates he has over a hundred collections: Barbie dolls of every variety, Chihuahua figurines, clown paintings, anything related to teeth or braces.
