There is little known about Shadman or Shaddai Prejean because his persona is concealed online. As he gains more popularity on the Internet, however, Shadman gets more polarizing opinions about what he does. Many believe there should limitations to the art he puts on his website. Early in 2017, he had to shut down his website Shadbase temporarily due to legal issues pertaining to drawings of underage girls. He also came under fire for drawing real-life people and celebrities instead of just fictional cartoon characters.
Currently, his website is back up but with limitations and regulations imposed to ensure that he doesn’t cross the line with his explicit art and webcomics. His notoriety online following these legal problems earned him the novelty of his name being used as a meme “Shadman” which pertains to the distaste for his work. Whether or not you agree, one thing is for sure—his popularity online is growing!
