Watch This: Making Pop Stencil Art Helped This Guy Recover From A Broken Neck

I recently had a chance to visit the Fremont Sunday Market, which is always brimming with interesting curios and personalities. This past weekend, the work of Dave Ryan from Manticore Stencil really caught my eye. Ryan makes a living off his eye-catching pop culture stencils, which are on display at the Market and at various other locations throughout Seattle. Often he will take old, second-hand paintings and stencil recognizable pop culture artifacts onto them. I found the results to be goofy, charming, and amusing.

I had a chance to chat with Dave on camera about his working style, but the story of how he really got into art truly blew me away. See the video after the jump.
