Self-proclaimed "Internet Surrealist" Jeremiah Palecek is widely known online for his gorgeous oil paintings of video games, 80s movies, and internet memes.

In his latest works he has turned to exploring the world of 'WTF' imagery. His latest piece 'Octomary' is a mash-up of Octomom with the Virgin Mary. Other paintings from Jeremiah Palecek's collections include an angry Santa kidnapping children and Nancy Reagan riding a BMX bike while piggybacking a small green creature.

Implications - Jeremiah Palecek will pretty much paint any meme that tickles his fancy. Whether it be one on video games or sketches of webcam girls in a chatroom. Not even Sarah Palin with a third eye is out of bounds for this very wacky and amazing artist.
