Christmastime has come and gone, but thankfully there’s a holiday keepsake to remind us how bleak 2017 was: an Instagram advent calendar of recently disgraced men.

L.A.-based comedian and illustrator Jamie Loftus was searching for elements that could lend themselves to a 25-part series when the grim yet timely subject of male harassers and abusers popped into her head. “Unfortunately,” Loftus told the Daily Dot, “this was the first thing that came to mind.”

Loftus has since crafted daily snot- and blood-smeared images of well-known men who’ve been in the news lately for repulsive behavior.

From Matt Lauer:

To T.J. Miller:

The gang’s all here.

today at the ‘advent calendar of recently disgraced men’ we celebrate the recent unemployment of known fuckhead danny masterson. with three major assault accusations, an LAPD investigation and a potential Church of Scientology coverup all in the works before Masterson was fired from Netflix show ‘the ranch.’ the final straw came when one of his victims directly confronted a Netflix executive at a kid’s soccer game, who admitted before knowing that she was a victim that high-ups at the company did not believe Masterson’s victims. Netflix denied the exec knew what he was talking about and in spite of continuing to work with Masterson as the police investigated him, finally removed him from the show yesterday. please never doubt the Justice being achieved at kids soccer games. fuck you danny masterson.

Loftus shared the daily illustrations to her Instagram, as well as on Twitter.

Loftus says the project has been a nice outlet for her frustrations. “For the most part, it was for a little catharsis, smearing shit and grime all over these men who are only now experiencing consequence for the first time,” she said.

While Loftus has no plans to create a print version of the calendar, she says she would consider doing it to benefit a non-profit or “any organization that benefits victim advocacy.”
