Framed: The sick sad world of David Marie AKA davidtherobot
Perth artist David Marie is the real life version of Jonah Hill’s dick-drawing character from Superbad.
Name: David Marie aka Davidtherobot
Location: Perth, Western Australia
Interests: Drawing, skateboarding, rude things, drinking beer, watching animal shows, people watching, spending time in the sunshine, eating junk food.
Creative Inspiration: I usually find inspiration in my day to day world; just events and the things that I see usually give me ideas for drawings. But I always draw a lot of inspiration from skateboarding graphics, not so much the style, but the offensive images and the lack of fucks given, especially in a lot of 90s graphics. I love looking at other people’s art, and seeing other peoples' work makes me want to draw. I like looking at high end art, super crisp stuff gets my juices going. But also a classic dick and balls in texta on a dunny wall is pretty good too.
Creative Goals: At the moment I'm just trying to develop my style a little bit more. I'd really like to take my drawings and do something with them, maybe have a small show, or start painting on walls. I'm really doing it because I just really like drawing messed up things and I really enjoy people’s reactions. I'm in the process of making a website and I’d like to sell some prints and eventually make t-shirts or something like that. Animation would be cool, but that’s a whole other level.
How would you best describe your artwork? I'd describe it as drawings you probably shouldn't show your nan, or maybe just poo, sex, boner, skateboarding, weed, beer and penis art.
