Andrew Shirey is an illustrator who goes by the name silentsketcher on his DeviantArt profile. Shirey studied at the Kendall College of Art and Design and currently recides in Michigan where he works a few odd jobs to keep up his design hobby and future career.

His latest piece, called Fast Food Mafia, is sure to grab him some attention. In this illustrative piece, Shirey turns famous American fast food mascots into scary-looking mob bosses. This poster piece is both highly creative and humorous. It is amazing to see Ronald McDonald as a don who wacks thugs instead of handing out Happy Meals to kids. I'm hoping Andrew Shirey takes up some cereal mascots next -- I'm pretty sure Tony the Tiger has a darker side. Stats for Fast Food Mob Bosses Trending: Older & Warm
