So, growing up I knew of two different famous men with the same name. Mike Myers, the comedian and actor best known for "Wayne's World" and ,of course, the "Austin Powers" movies. Then, there is Michael Myers, the serial killer in the "Halloween" movies. When I first saw a Halloween VHS tape with the name Michael Myers on it as a kid, I was confused for a few seconds. I thought, "Does Mr. Myers have a night job I don't know about? I thought he was a comedic actor." Well, I found out they were two completely different people. One is fictional and the other is not. So, from this memory, I was inspired to create this design.
Because Myers character, Austin Powers, is known as the "International Man of Mystery", I thought that I could play on words for the killer Michael Myers and thus "National Man of Misery" was created! I mean, he looks miserable and causes misery for others, so I thought it would be an appropriate fit for him! The design also has another one of my original woodcut block prints of Michael Myers. I really hope you enjoy it!
