|Mr Bean and his beloved Teddy|
Just some Monday Madness for you today. I know that art purists won’t find this amusing but I love when art is transformed into pop culture. It becomes art with a twist. The latest marriage between art and pop culture, created by artist Rodney Pike, features Mr. Bean.
For those of you who haven’t a clue as to who the Bean is, I will fill you in. Mr Bean is a fictional character, portrayed by actor Rowan Atkinson, made popular by the hit 1991 British series of the same name. There were only 14 actual episodes of Mr Bean and every last one of them the Bean stumbles upon everyday occurrences with the grace of a silent elephant. He is a walking disaster area!
Generally, the Bean rarely speaks, making Atkinson’s brand of comedy all the more funny with his twisted expressions and low grimaces. Since then he has been featured in an animated series and two feature films.

Lately, I have been following him on facebook. If you do not, I encourage you to do so. Here is his youtube channel just in case you need a bit more coercing. He sparks a bit of humor in the most mundane of ways.
