jim carrey, mark i


Yesterday and today I watched a documentary about the making of Man on the Moon, Jim Carrey’s portrayal of Andy Kaufman/Tony Clifton. While watching I made a couple of sketches of him. After that I watched something my girlfriend Melony sent me, a YouTube video of Carrey with “ILLUMINATI” in the clickbait headline. (Carrey was schticking on ”llluminutty,’ forming a hand-triangle in front of his “Mocking Tongue.”) Then I did this page, deliberately as a preliminary sketch and not as a finished work, on torn, ink-stained paper.

Here are the words:

Juxtapose a rubber face with schtick on NBC

Just suppose FIRE MARSHAL BILL and you are lost at sea

Juggle poses Andy Kaufman style–the crowd will ROAR

Introduce some paint to canvas–then your soul will soar

Iterative and immersive rising up to be

Multimegauniversal personality
