The work of Javier Mayoral is impressive for a number of reason. First of all, they are full of comic genius. Secondly, they display a natural talent. Thirdly, Javier Mayoral is a chef by day and paints these entertaining illustrations on his time off. Producing more than some artists do in their lifetime, he has so far created about 4,600 pieces, painting approximately five a day.

Based in Miami, Florida, Javier Mayoral is a self-taught artist. He sells his art, which ranges from scantilly clad women bending over next to captions about Hollandaise sauce recipes to men playing Batman with cats on their heads, on eBay. What makes Javier Mayoral's work particularly arresting are the narrations on each one, which really fleshes out the colorful images.
