Kyle Baker Drew Justin Bieber’s Mugshot, So At Least Something Cool Came Out Of This Nonsense
Look, before you say anything, I’m tired of hearing about Justin Bieber too. We are all tired of hearing about Justin Bieber. And were I not literally paid to be on the internet, I would mostly be avoiding it like the plague until people found more interesting things to talk about.
But at least one good thing has come out of this: Bieber’s mugshot, taken after his arrest in Miami for driving under the influence, has been drawn by none other than the great Kyle Baker, the multiple Eisner-Award winning creator behind such works as Why I Hate Saturn, The Cowboy Wally Show and Plastic Man, and the (self-proclaimed) Greatest Cartoonist Of All Time. So, at least Bieber has that going for him.
All things considered, this is probably the best thing that’s happened to the multi-platinum selling singer in a little while, right? I mean, don’t you wish Kyle Baker would draw your mugshot? You know you do.
Also, Baker posted this beautiful illustration of Martin Luther King Jr. on Monday, in celebration of the national holiday named in honor of the iconic civil rights leader. That is about as “opposite end of the spectrum” as you can get, I think.
