Pigs In Space

I designed this poster for fun last year and forgot about it – I was never 100% satisfied with it. I thought I’d get around to fixing it but that never happened. So here it is anyway.

Playboy Covers

Over the weekend, I randomly stumbled upon a vintage Playboy at the Drake General Store with Jessica Rabbit on the cover. I didn’t know this existed! I don’t own many Playboys, but I’ve been searching for a third magazine to go with my Marge Simpson and Ginger Spice covers before getting them framed. I think it’s a good match.

Next up: A Tribute to Steve Martin

Comedian/actor/author/banjo genius, Steve Martin, is a legend, so I’m really excited to be part of his upcoming tribute show. Excuuuuuse Meeeeeeeee opens Friday, June 8th at Gallery 1988 Venice. Stay tuned for my submission.

Steve Martin Quote

I randomly came across this today on ffffound while I was working on a portrait of Steve Martin for G1988‘s upcoming tribute show. Weird…

WB’s Television Out Of The Box

On my recent trip to Los Angeles, I was lucky to visit the Television Out Of The Box exhibit presented by Warner Bros. at the Paley Center For Media. It featured original props, costumes, set pieces and video clips of some of WB’s most iconic shows. But what I loved most, was the collection of original animation cels and vintage toys from some of my favorite cartoons: Bugs Bunny, Tiny Toons, The Flintstones, The Jetsons, Animaniacs, Scooby-Doo, and more.

If you’re in the L.A. area it’s worth checking out. My only wish was that it had a larger collection!

Shit Golden Girls Say

I’m really excited to be a part of Gallery 1988‘s 8 year anniversary show, MEMES, a celebration of the Internet’s best inside jokes. The show opens this Friday, May 4th at the Melrose location (7020 Melrose Ave, Los Angeles 90038).

I selected the Meme, Shit Girls Say.

Shit Girls Say is a single topic blog and a web series showcasing various cliches and verbal mannerisms that are commonly associated with teenage girls and young women. – Knowyourmeme.com

Originally, I wanted to create a piece with the creators, Graydon Sheppard and Kyle Humphrey. However, the original video inspired dozens of parodies so I wanted to create my own unique spin-off. ’Shit Golden Girls Say was born’. I had been forever searching for the right platform to pay tribute to my favorite show and G1988′s Memes exhibit was the perfect stage to bring the characters of Dorothy, Sophia, Blanche and Rose back to life.

All the quotes you see here are taken from various episodes of The Golden Girls. Even after 20 years, the girls are just as funny.

Communication Arts 53

I’m honoured to be included in this year’s illustration annual of Communication Arts 53.

Since they were only judging the illustration, the type was removed from the posters. I thought it looked strange at first, but it’s been kind of growing on me…
