About @pixelatedboat

Cartoonist and writer Ben Ward launched a career off a Milkshake Duck’s back. Known for his absurdist political and pop-infused Twitter parodies subsequently fostered a cultural metaphor and new addition to the English language lexicon. Ben pens and crudely parodies faux-downtrodden icons including the Monopoly man and Garfield’s Jim Davis, with a 2018 #getoutthevote campaign to euthanize the Michelin Man. Now with increasingly viral Adult Swim “One Giant Hand” web and Instagram comic, Ben’s 250K+ Twitter network continues to contemplate rapid downfalls through comic personification.
