How could you bounce this guy out of your party?! "Party Crasher" is the latest from TRUNKS ART's 'A-Okay Series!'

When I set out to create the party crasher character, I had planned on producing a really cool peacock. So how come my party crasher looks more like the "malibu chicken?" At first I was like, "man…this is one lame peacock" but instead of tossing this first attempt, I ended up developing it into what you see here because the more I looked at this little guy – the more out of place he looked. And the more out of place he looked, the more he WAS my "Party Crasher!"

I think all of us from time to time can feel like the party crasher. Even with having an invitation in your pocket, a drink in your hand and friends within back slapping distance, a rock'in fun evening can surprise the best of us with those momentary thoughts that question why we're even here and doubts that makes us feel more like an outsider than a relished invitee. Does that mean it's time to grab your date and leave the barn? Relax. That girl over by the chicken coop is thinking the same thing. And so is that pig in the corner. So have another drink, take in the music and just know that deep down – we're all "Party Crashers!"

"Party Crasher" is part of my "A Okay" Series. It's available in various sizes on paper or canvas as limited edition prints (75). Licensing of this image is available as well. To see more of my work, please visit my website at
