On Thursday July 24, fans at Comic-Con can send a tweet with the hashtag #PizzaHutTMNT and be selected to get a free slice of pizza in a collectible box designed by frequent Gallery 1988 artist Scott Derby. They can also jump up and ride a 16 foot long tank called the “Pizza Thrower.”

When you’ve done 500 plus episodes over multiple decades, the backlog of content is staggering. In the case of The Simpsons, that doesn’t only mean hilarious jokes, animation cells and Emmy awards. It means music too. While most people associate the show’s music only with Danny Elfman‘s iconic theme, every week has lots of other music and that music is finally getting spotlighted.
The Simpsons Take the Bowl is live musical performance taking place for three nights this September at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, CA. Hank Azaria will host an evening of music, cameos and never before seen footage. Read more about the Simpsons Hollywood Bowl performance below. Read More »
A tourist shot footage of Elastigirl tripping and suffering the mishap of having her costume face fall off in front of a crowd of children at Disney World’s Magic Kingdom The Incredibles Super Dance Party Show. Instead of being shocked, onlooking kids laughed at the accident. I’m sure these kind of accidents happen all the time around the Disney theme parks (as with any time of regular show). Its always interesting to see how the Disney castmembers quickly respond and fix the issues as they arise. You can watch a video of when Elastigirl’s face falls off embedded after the jump.

While you might not know the name Rob Jones you know his work. I guarantee it. Jones is a creative director for Mondo, which means he works with each and every artist who releases a poster and helps them achieve the best vision imaginable. While a piece by Tyler Stout or Olly Moss was done by them, Jones helped steer them in a specific direction from a very early stage. You could say every Mondo poster is born of Jones’ DNA.
In addition to that, Jones is quite the accomplished artist himself. He’s done dozens of famous album covers, gig posters, movie posters and in 2011 won an Grammy for designing a box set for The White Stripes. Later this week, he’s presenting an ambitious new solo show called “Grief,” comprised of 100 self portraits offering different takes on Charlie Brown. Yes, from the Peanuts Charlie Brown. It open July 17 at Galerie F in Chicago, Illinois.
Below, we’ve got several exclusive, pop culture inspired pieces from the show including detailed descriptions of the personal interpretations behind each from Jones himself. It’s a funny, but sometimes frightening, window into one of the most influential eyes in pop culture art today. Read More »
