CHALLENGE: April Fools Gallery 2022

Another year has passed since the last April Fool's Challenge: it was not the best year ever, and the present one is already competing to become even less best. So we could use some fun, right?

If this is your first time, the rules are as follow:
1) pick a PJ artist who inspires you, who you like, who you want to prank, or choose randomly. 
2) study their work, technique, style, themes, palettes, whatever identifies them or makes them unique.
3) copy those features and make your own work (without plagiarism), and pretend they made it.
4) name the artist or link to their page.
5) fool us all.
Canvas Size - min. the smallest canvas of the choosen artist divided by 2, max. whatever you are able to finish in one week;
Colours - min. two, max. whatever will not make our pixel purist alarms go off;
Transparency - min. no transparency, max. a transparency;
Animation - min. no animation, max. a lot of animation;
Foolness - optional.
As usual, we are sharing links to previous galleries:
