From Big Daddy to Uncut Gems, I’ve probably watched Adam Sandler movies at least 5x in my life. Something about his movies, despite being goofy, all feel good. There was a time in my life when I couldn’t sleep without Mr.Deeds playing.
Watching Longfellow Deeds, I saw how he wears that Deeds Pizza shirt, and thought to myself, I could probably make one! And so I made an illustration like I usually do, only more visual and flyer-like. I’d probably make one exactly the same for myself once this lockdown is over.
Thinking I can do this for most of his movies, I decided to create two more. An updated Mud Dogs mascot illustration based on The Waterboy in 1998, and a portrait based on the film by the Safdie Brothers, Uncut Gems.
I’ve heard he visits The Park’s Finest in California, and thought I would see him there when I visited. Tough luck. Nevertheless, I hope I can meet the guy soon! Always a fan.
Hey Adam, if you’re reading, hit me up!
