In 2015 Pardee collaborated on "I Got Your Back" with hip hop artist Justin Bua who described Pardee as "a prolific artist who's imagination is populated with wicked, warped, and wacky characters that walk a tightrope between playful and grotesque. His artistic world inspires all artists to not only strive for greatness, but more importantly, to have fun."
Pardee's self-proclaimed influences include 1980s horror movies, pop art, graffiti and gangster rap. Artistically, he adored The Garbage Pail Kids, The Maxx, Spawn and Tales from the Crypt.
