A couple years ago a broke college student named Madison Gregory at Laguna Art College sent me a painting he’d just finished. It was an impressionist version of a classic scene in Dumb & Dumber called Go West Lloyd.
I thought the piece was a little too good to just throw in the HQ DAR so I posted it alone on theCHIVE homepage and the painting quickly went viral.
Madison didn’t have to eat Ramen Noodles anymore. Today, Madison’s orginal movie art is everywhere at theCHIVE office. He’s the real deal and we’re so proud of his success.
We’re huge art supporters here so we’ll be providing links to the prints. Madison personally signs all the prints. This is the history and some of the stories behind Madison Gregory’s art here at theCHIVE.
Go West, Lloyd signed prints available RIGHT HERE.
Madison followed up Go West, Lloyd with Total Redemption. There’s something special about this piece. He captures the moment perfectly. Everybody who sees it immediately exclaims, ‘And totally redeem yourself!’

Jesus Taunts Walter came about after a weekend-long Lebowski marathon. It’s the very first painting you see when you walk in theCHIVE. I like the idea of the Dude, Donny, and Walter staring at everybody as they enter.
The Bill Murray piece, Where the Hell is the Whiskey, would become Madison’s most popular work thus far.
Madison and I both loved the Lost in Translation, particularly Bill’s reticent performance during the Suntori Time Whiskey commercial shoot. Madison flew to theCHIVE and crashed on my couch for a week. Madison actually repainted Bill’s entire face four times until he was satisfied. We stayed up late and drank a ton of bourbon. It was a memorable week.
Whiskey is always the last stop on theCHIVE office tour. Bill has seen a lot of late night antics.
