Alex Pardee paints the Scooby Doo villains and explains why the show stopped him from using drugs

Alex Pardee painted the classic Scooby Doo villains for the Gag Me With a Toon show opening May 5 at Meltdown in Los Angeles:

He also offered explained how Scooby Doo is just like Fight Club:

And after I noticed a few things about Shaggy, I caught on quick and realized what Scooby Doo really was. The only REAL thing in the entire Scooby universe was Shaggy. The dude was just an aging hipster that was a little kooky and schitzophrenic and took mad LSD. Everything else in the entire cartoon, from the talking dog, the "ideal" friends who would never be his friends in reality, the ghosts, the castles, etc, they were all just figments of Shaggy's consistently bad trips. When they would encounter other characters, ever notice how EVERY other character that the gang interacted with looked confused?? Thats cuz some Fight Club shit was going on and Shaggy was just talking in like 3 different voices and characters to these dudes.
Keep reading to see how it kept him off drugs and to see a list of the rest of the artists participating in the show. And there's various prints and t-shirts on sale in his webstore.
