Discussion in 'The Howard Stern Show' started by nearly.normal, Jun 14, 2014.
that picture always made me feel sad.
During his June 2014 visit to the show, Jonah Hill brought up a painting of Eric the Actor with a Cougar he emailed to Howard and Jimmy Kimmel.
Done by renowned artist Jonas Wood, Howard said he loved it! He even got Eric on the phone to discuss the work, which Eric had no idea existed.
It turns out the artist is a big fan of the Howard Stern Show and has agreed to let us display his work for the world. So without further ado, Eric and the Cougar:

[h=2]Jonas Wood Bio[/h] About The Artist
With one foot rooted in Analytic Cubism and the other in Contemporary Pop art, Jonas Wood is an artist who bridges two seemingly disparate traditions to create paintings that present contemporary life from multiple perspectives. Born in Boston and now living and working in Los Angeles, Wood took a somewhat circuitous route to becoming a professional artist, even considering pursuing a PhD in psychology before deciding on an MFA in painting. His work still contains subtle psychological elements, tying together elements of the past and the present, either through empty but intimate interiors or through other paintings of contemporary American life. Wood's use of color in his embracement of quotidian domestic settings calls to mind David Hockney's dreamlike depictions of suburban subjects. Though not inherently mathematical in composition, the artist's paintings often contain numerous intersecting geometrical elements, as objects and patterns become flattened in his artistic process, which involves creating drawings of photographs of his subjects that eventually serve as the primary models for his paintings. In creating artworks from the items and environments around him, whether they are sports imagery, animals, or furniture, Wood extracts the beauty from the ordinary, proving that there's more to the everyday than meets the eye.
I expected to see him with your mom
On a scale of 1 to 10 I give that painting a ...
Cougars aren't spotted. Got the chucks right though.
At least not outside of dark, age inappropriate nightclubs!
Those two homos look like they are playing gay chicken.
I fucking love Eric.
I'm printing this out and putting it on my wall.
We need more ETM threads.
That little mollusk's delusions are the stuff dreams are made of...
I would buy a print.
OMG, look at that face!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ok, cubs can sometimes have spots. They fade as they get a little older. Is that supposed to be a cub in the painting?
Based on relative sizes of ETM and the cat, I'd take a wild guess and say it is a cub. Or perhaps a midget cougar.
Video at link maybe NSFW
Is ETM still alive?
