These days, animation isn’t as defined by age as it once was. Once upon a time, a Disney movie was only thought to be for kids. But recently, Pixar has tackled mature themes, the humor of South Park has become a cultural institution, Star Wars is an animated TV series, comic book characters have cartoons and thanks to genres like anime, R-rated animation isn’t an oxymoron.

Enter Justin White, an up and coming artist made popular through sites like Threadless. He’s decided to take that thought one step further and turn some of your favorite live action movies and TV shows in to animation. His first solo show is called Rated G and opens at Gallery 1988 Melrose, in Los Angeles on Friday. We’re proud to exclusively the entire show.

White’s familiar yet flithy animated style has reimagined scenes from 30 films and shows never meant for animation. Films like Fight Club, Fargo, Casablanca, The Breakfast Club, Oldboy, Kindergarden Cop, Alien, Reservoir Dogs, There Will Be Blood and a whole lot more have been reimagined as high quality animation cels. He even tackled TV shows like Community, The Office, Breaking Bad and more.

‘The Office’ Closes After One More Season

The Office of Dunder Mifflin/Sabre is finally closing. Showrunner Greg Daniels revealed that the upcoming ninth season of the hit NBC sitcom will be its last and that the end date will give the producers a chance to tie everything up nicely:

All questions will be answered this year. We’re going to see who is behind the documentary. We’re going to meet some of them… and we’re going to explore [why they were filming for so long].

Based on the hit BBC show of the same name which launched Ricky Gervais to mega-stardom, The Office remains one of NBC’s highest rated shows, even since Steve Carell left the show after the seventh season, being replaced by James Spader. The show helped launch the careers of John Krasinski, Rainn Wilson, Ed Helms, Rashida Jones, Jenna Fischer, Mindy Kaling and others since its inception in 2005.
