My Steve Martin Tribute

I’ve been a fan of Steve Martin for years, so I was honored to be a part of his upcoming tribute show, Excuuuuuse Meeeeeeeee, at Gallery 1988.

Besides his films, three things stand out to me the most about Steve:

  1. His iconic premature white hair.
    Apparently, he started going gray in his late 20′s, which makes him the original silver fox.
  2. He hasn’t aged in 40 years.
    Right? He looks exactly the same ever since I can remember. (Refer to #1)
  3. He has a million job titles.
    I mean, really. Is there anything Steve can’t do!?

Scroll down to see actual photographs. Danny Askar, same person who printed my Shit Golden Girls Say piece, did an outstanding job.

      Thanks, Randy! It was fun to work on. I should have done a variant of the Classics concept. It seems like that’s the most popular one.

    Great work man, Steve himself would love these!
