Jeff Mitchell's Arrested Development Art is Both a Satire and a Tribute

Jeff Mitchell's fabulously realistic Arrested Development art offers the perfect way to celebrate the new season.

Using mixed media, Mitchell depicts three Bluths in wildly comedic positions. Buster is shown having his "incident" with a sheep, looking a little bit scared. Michael is painted wearing a banana suit, his typical ironic half-smile on his squinting face. Finally, Tobias is shown as his blue man alter-ego, tears softly running down his blue-hued cheeks. This is a reference to Tobias's mistaking a men's depression support group for the Blue Man Group -- and also because he tends to cry a lot.

Each of these portraits is a mixed media creation on semi-gloss paper and, if purchased, will include a certificate of authenticity. These aren't prints; they are unique pop culture paintings that are one-of-a-kind. While lots of fan-made Arrested Development Art is available around the web, Jeff Mitchell's creations are truly original.
