Adventure Time art show @ Gallery 1988, April 3rd

I'm very excited to reveal my latest work for the upcoming Adventure Time tribute art show at Gallery 1988 (West) on April 3rd. To make my work "stand out", I tried something new and created two versions of my piece for this show; one with "normal" color scheme, and the other with red/blue 3D (anaglyph) effect, complete with classic 3D glasses... If you have a pair of red/blue 3D glasses at home, you can pop those on right now and take a look at your screen to get the full effect.

"Battle Cry"
12" x 18" giclee Moab Entrada Rag Bright White
Full color version: Signed and numbered edition of 5
3D version: Signed and numbered edition of 10
(comes with one pair of 3D glasses)

Opening reception is from 7-10pm, but if you want to attend, you MUST RSVP with the gallery to let them know you're coming...

"Trap 'Em All" shirt available again on Teefury.com

In light of the recent passing of Harold Ramis, Teefury.com has once again made "Trap 'Em All" available as part of their "Gallery" collection, which highlights highly demanded shirts from past daily offerings.

Tom Kurzanski, art director at TeeFury.com, had this to say about a comedy legend:

"Growing up, Egon Spengler was the Ghostbuster to whom I could relate. Venkman was the player, Stantz was the dopey geek, Winston was the everyman voice of reason. Spengler embodied the socially awkward, book smart individual: the deadpan wallflower with no filter. I’m no genius parapsychologist, but I saw myself in there. I built my own PKE meter from an old battery tester, put together a makeshift proton pack from a backpack and old toys and made mini movies with my sister and my friends. I immersed myself in books, mythology, comics, and art. I grew up and continued to pursue my passions, outsider or not, without regret or remorse. Egon helped me to understand that I could be included, be part of a cohesive whole, and do something with meaning without having to conform to what society dictates as “normality” and made me laugh while doing it.

Harold Ramis was a remarkable comedic writer, director and actor. His humor seeped into our collective consciousness and helped many of us embrace our inner geek. One of our classic TeeFury designs “Trap Them All” by the outstanding artist Scott Derby (nakedderby) is a fitting tribute to the man and the character. I hope you agree."
