Shaun White and the Scary World of Celebrity Fan Art

Shaun White is the first real celebrity snowboarder. Sure there have been, and are now, plenty of other well-known snowboarders, but they are only really recognized by other snowboarders. Shaun White on the other hand has a profile that reaches far outside of our little sporting world. There are many benefits to being a celebrity, $9million a year being the most obvious, but there are also drawbacks and one of those drawbacks is a pretty frightening bunch of fans and their need to produce pictures of Shaun White. Shaun White fan art seems to split into four categories: good, bad, cartoons and a nice bit of old fashioned stalking. Thankfully that first category has so few examples we can miss it entirely and concentrate on the freaky ones...

Still, at least he get's paid $9 million a year.
