1. Peanuts Goes Hip-Hop in Mark Drew’s “Deez Nuts” (GALLERY).

    Charles M. Schulz’s Peanuts and classic ’90s hip-hop – now and forever bonded via “Deez Nuts.” Borne from the vintage hip-hop obsessed mind of Australian-born, Tokyo-based artist Mark Drew, it started out innocently enough as a self-produced zine featuring Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Lucy, Linus and Peppermint Patty (seen above on the request line) conversing in classic rap lines by Wu-Tang, Nas, Biggie, N.W.A, Snoop, P.E. and more. Now it’s a full fledged exhibition of large scale paint-on-canvas which recently opened at the China Heights gallery in suburban Sydney, Australia. And while previous monumental work of art entitled “Deez Nuts” will always stay near and dear to our hearts, this is pretty great. Take it from folks who luh us some re-worked Peanuts panels.

      As entertaining as these are, I kinda feel this is disrespectful to Charles Schultz’s legacy. We’re talking about an artist who’ve put in decades of hard work into an iconic comic strip and it’s now being played like a joke by inserting a hip hop attitude that sort of makes it negative rather than humor.

      Indeed. He needs to incorporate these deez nuts jokes into a comic next: http://www.bofads.com/stories/deeznutsjokes9.htm

      Thats all on you. The “negative” you feel comes from 1. your own relationship to hip hop and/or 2. your inability to see the humor from the juxtaposition of they very type of playful Schultz legacy you discuss with the intense nature of these classic rap lines

      Make these into t-shirts?

      A few are clever but I find that looking at the original text is even more disorienting. Hip-hop words are pretty omnipresent these days. The words from the 50s and 60s are the exotic ones.
