689 - Life Doesn't Give A Sh!t About Your Problems - The 10th Tube of Christmas by Jeral Tidwell

Mark Brickey


Jeral Tidwell is our 10th Tube of Christmas hoping to send a little Redneck Wisdom to your front door this holiday season with "Life Doesn't Give A Shit About Your Plans" hand drawn 18"x24" silkscreen print. 

Jeral Tidwell, a regular guest on Adventures In Design, is a commercial illustrator with a focus on Hot Rod Americana as his primary subject matter. Entirely self-trained in the arts of illustration, painting, printmaking, pinstriping and airbrushing. He's as stubborn as he is stupid and never sees any obstacle as a problem but merely an opportunity to create a new solution. Tidwell once broke both of his wrists in a motorcycle accident and was too stubborn to take the doctor's advice of giving up on art and instead fully recovered by fighting with his doctor and demanding cutting-edge procedures. He's the real deal, and that's why we all love him so. 

Today with Uncle Jeral:
How much of a plan do you make for your day to day life?
The wrongful design of the toilet seat and how it's easy for a dude not paying attention to pee all over the floor.
The art of airbrushing and how Jeral mastered it while in high school. 
The struggle to stay relevant after three decades of being a commercial artist
The rage years, how as young men we struggled to keep our tempers under control and the joy of the mellower 40s.
