"Hanksy" is an anonymous New York based street artist who produces parodies of Banksy's iconic works mashed-up with pictures and references to actor Tom Hanks. Best idea ever? Best idea ever.
Apparently both Tom Hanks and Banksy are aware of and enjoy Hanksy's work, and the artist has recently branched out toward different actors and pop-culture references, but still keeping the glorious love of puns that inspired the original work.
Read an interview with Hanksy by EA Hanks, who happens to be Tom Hanks' daughter, here.

This news made me so excited I died and went to heaven but found out it wasn't my time yet so was sent back to Earth but in the body of an elderly rich white man only to be killed again by the man's scheming wife and assistant, then reincarnated again in the body of someone pretty much exactly the same as me or something.
Anyway, this dream track, called DoYaThing, comes out on February 23rd and will be a free download as part of Converse's "3 Artists, 1 Song" thing that I've previously ranted about. So stay tuned for more news, and less rubbish movie analogies!
