We’re shown you Mondo, Marvel, some movies, and if you read Page 2 or Superhero Bits, there have been several peppered in there too.

Twenty-years ago today, June 11, 1993, was a date 65 million years in the making. This is the 20th anniversary of the release of Steven Spielberg‘s Jurassic Park, and rarely does a movie still resonate two decades after its release like Spielberg’s dinosaur action thriller does today. Fans still talk about the film on an almost daily basis, it was recently re-released in 3D, and a third sequel is in the works.
To commemorate this occasion, several artists decided to do their own online art exhibit about the film called DINO-DNA: A Tribute to Jurassic Park. Ranging from funny to subtle and back again, it’s a great way to stir up some nostalgia on such a good day. Read More »
You may not know Glen Brogan by name, but his art has likely caught your eye. The West Virginia-based artist has been working for venues like Gallery 1988 and Mondo for years, creating pop culture art in a style that simultaneously unique and familiar. His visuals looks like something out of an animated film, popping with the same kind of vibrancy and cartoonish realism that makes animation wonderful.
Now the artist is finally having his first solo show and /Film is proud to debut a few of the images. It opens Friday May 31 at Gallery 1988 East in Los Angeles, CA. Brogan has created pieces from all corners of pop culture, television, comic books, movies and more, with topics as varied as Indiana Jones, Batman, The Simpsons, the Domino’s Noid and Smokey the Bear.

This Valentine’s Day, while everyone else is buying disposable greeting cards, why not buy something a little more lasting, like a limited edition print for (500) Days of Summer?

It’ll feature limited edition screenprints and original art, all created to immortalize some of the most enduring romances in pop culture. But we’re not talking Kate Hudson movies.

They’ll even have one of the first prints (if not the first) focused on (500) Days of Summer.

When Judd Apatow‘s R-rated comedies started making hundreds of millions of dollars, Hollywood took notice and emulated them left and right. But fans knew that the director of The 40-Year-Old Virgin and Knocked Up had been making us laugh long before that. He helmed two of the most underrated network series of all time, Freaks and Geeks and Undeclared; produced films like The Cable Guy and Anchorman; and worked on TV shows such as The Critic and The Larry Sanders Show. This was a comedic genius that deserved all the praise heaped upon him.
In celebration of his latest film, This is 40, Gallery 1988 Melrose in Los Angeles is hosting a Judd Apatow tribute show featuring art based on films he had a hand in. So, in addition to everything mentioned above, there’s also art inspired by Superbad, Pineapple Express, Talladega Nights, Walk Hard, and Step Brothers. The show opens Tuesday December 4 and remains on display through December 30.
After the jump, check out a ton of art from the show from artists such as Glen Brogan, Todd Slater, Joshua Budich, Jason Liwag, Jason Edminston, Dave Perillo, Anthony Petrie, Jeff Boyes, Joey Spiotto and others, including some exclusives, and find out how you can attend. Read More »
