Madison Gregory paints ‘Where the Hell is the Whiskey?’ (12 HQ Photos)

Last year, a broke college student named Madison Gregory painted his favorite scene from Dumb and Dumber and sent it to theCHIVE. Go West, Lloyd became a viral internet sensation and thrust Madison into the national spotlight.

Madison's ability to create immediately recognizable yet nuanced stills from films with his thick brush strokes has made Madison the preeminent painter of film scenes in the world. His work has been commissioned by art collectors from Berlin to Malta. Prints of his work are wildly popular these days as well.

For the past six months, Madison has wanted to return to his humble roots at theCHIVE to paint a piece from one of my favorite Murray films, Lost In Translation. It's called Where The Hell Is The Whiskey?

Madison flew from NY to LA to stay at my place last week and craft the Murray. It took 7 days to finish and if you stopped by our offices (hint: with beer) you probably got a sneak-peak. Here's the making of Where The Hell Is The Whiskey?

Prints of all Madison’s amazing work are available on his website.

    Dear Chive Staff and Chive Users:

    While I am not the original Mayer Jacoby, I am continuing his cause. Through emails with Mayer Jacoby, I’ve found that several people are taking up his/her cause where the name is more symbolic, and less a representation of a single person. To that end, I want to say the following:
    1)While the mayer jacoby anti-chive movement is very unpopular to some Chive folk, there is a growing population of individuals who post the rants and have expressed extreme disgust at the institutionalized racis m by the Chive
    2)Many disgusted Chive users have tried to submit HUNDREDS of pictures representing African American and Minor ity women, and to no avail.
    3)While the rants with caps-lock is certainly annoying, it is important to continue this strategy to gain attention and recognition of the Chive’s ra cist practices
    4)There are horrible unspeakable emails from Chive users that will become public in due time. These emails exemplify some pretty stark ra cist, xenophobic, homophobic, and border-line threatening language. While we want to expose these individuals and potentially their employers, we have refrained. A tiger doesn’t change his stripes. So these racist idiots will continue to be racist.
    5)Before you bash Mayer Jacoby, think about what the movement is saying. Is it so wrong to integra te mi norities into all posts? Separate is not equal.
    6)When the Chive does post pictures of black men and women, they perpetuate hateful stereotypes. Why not celebrate their intellect with some historical examples?

    Thank you for your time,

    Mayer Jacoby

    (a) AWESOME painting
    (b) how about theChive auction that off for charity?

    I'm sure Chivers would pay a lot for that and the money would go to a great cause! Say, any of the chivers we've supported who are struggling with cancer.

    Great job Madison, you have a bright future ahead of you. I'm excited to see your continued success grow and grow. You have a wonderful painting talent

    #1 -12 I was very happy to see this Chive, and very surprised because about a week ago I decided to paint this very image and I would have undoubtedly submitted it, so I'm glad you posted this when you did or I would have seemed to be a tail-coating jerk. Well done Madison, great minds think alike.

    My kid can paint better crap with the shit in his diapers. Give this "artist" some crayons and send him back to "art" school.

    • KSMO

      maybe u should stop letting your kid paint with his own crap, that does not sound sanitary. And maybe cut back on the hater-ade as well, its unbecoming.

      come back when ur kids getting all kinds of exposure, and making money doing what he loves. (hopefully he grows out off the crap smearing faze, i don't think people will embrace it in the same way)
