Officially Licensed Popeye Wall Art
"Popeye - Stronger" Motivational Canvas Art by IKONICK
Everyone's favorite squinting sailor has been featured in comic strips, radio broadcasts, animated cartoons, live action movies, video games, pinball machines, toys, and even inspired a popular dance. From his first appearance in a 1919 comic strip to Robin Williams's portrayal of him, the imaginative stories of Popeye the sailor man have entertained audiences for over 100 years.
However, to most of us, Popeye was known as the tough but clever star of our Saturday morning cartoons, muttering catchphrases and puffing on his corncob pipe.
Whatever obstacle Popeye faced, whether it was defending his beloved Olive Oyl from his "friend" Bluto's attempts to steal her or battling the terrible pirate Sinbad the Sailor, Popeye didn’t give in until he was victorious.
No matter how hopeless Popeye's situation became, he never gave up or made excuses. After every beating, he would come back more determined to succeed. If things got especially tough for him and even his multi-use corncob pipe couldn't get him out of the situation, he reached for his secret weapon: Spinach.
To Popeye, spinach unleashed his full strength and let him perform superhuman tasks: Lifting entire buildings off the ground, shattering boulders, and defying gravity. No matter how beaten or defeated he was, reaching for that can of spinach summoned all his power to the task at hand.
Everyone needs a secret weapon they can turn to during difficult times. When exhaustion comes on and the excuses creep in, it's important to have something that can rally all your remaining strength.
Maybe it's the vision of your end goal. Or maybe it’s the memory of some lingering voice of doubt you want to prove wrong. Wherever it comes from, the right motivation can overcome any moment of weakness.
Let this officially licensed Popeye wall art be your spinach. Remember that you have the strength to get through any challenge you face. But it's up to you to reach for the can and tap into it.
Hang this Popeye canvas art where you'll see it daily, and remember: When you take a beating, don't make excuses and don’t lose hope. Get back up and come back stronger and more determined. Like Popeye.
