Shane Morrissy: Vicious Dumbshow

Posted by Charlotte Simmonds,

Vicious Dumbshow is a website created by Irish artist Shane Morrissy. But what does it mean, Shane? What does it mean?! That Nancy Reagan and Vladimir Lenin have a mutual penchant for baked beans? That advancements in binary coding can allow us to spell out “Lars Ulrich” with the heads of alternating US Presidents? Oh, I give up. On understanding that is, not on you Shane. No, you’re good, a heady mix of politico-pop culture and curious concepts. Excited to see what will come next from this talented, if slightly irreverent illustrator.
