*Dave Pollot* is a software engineer and self-professed “very serious artist” who spends evenings painting over “discarded, unwanted, and unloved old artwork” that his girlfriend Becca sources from thrift stores and garage sales. Pollot’s work is “art with a sense of humor”; hence, with brushes and oil paints he paints pop culture icons such as Darth Vader and Chewbacca, Stormtroopers from “Star Wars,” LEGO bricks, Bender and Zoidberg from “Futurama,” and the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man from “Ghostbusters” over rural landscapes, seascapes, portraits, and still life.

Humorous, indeed, but we have to say that Pollot’s work sure is creative and out-of-the-box!
