Ebay seller freeperdan has done it again. For Obama’s 2013 inauguration the artist has uncorked yet another masterpiece featuring a nude Obama with a unicorn and pancakes.
Freeperdan has a long history of creating such paintings always with similar themes. Nude folks, pancakes, and unicorns are ubiquitous with the artist’s works.
Freeperdan has painted cats with pancakes, guns with pancakes, unicorns with Stalin and TV character Gregory House (and Obama), Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan and Ayn Rand… with pancakes. He’s even done one with Deadmaus5 and pancakes.
Needless to say, there’s lots of pancakes.
Several years ago I contacted Mr. freeperdan, whose real name is Dan Lacey, to ask about his art. He told me he is a “painter of pancakes” and spares no political party from his brush. He also told told Roll Call last year that he generally considers himself to be a conservative, not a liberal.
