For me, the use of color for the 'exploding heads' makes them lose any gore you might expect to see in this kind of imagery. The installation pieces also work brilliantly. In particular, I like the composite piece entitled corporate picnic (look for the cigarette butt).
Implications - Another reason why I love this art is because of its unusual title. While the title "Acid in the Ice Cream" may have you thinking of dairy treats or acid rain, this illustration series is neither of those two things. Zach Johnsen has once again managed to impress the art world with his kooky titles and smashing art.
