Are You A God? – Gallery 1988’s Ghostbusters 30th Anniversary Art Show
Ghostbusters has always been a huge part of my life. There is something about that movie that just speaks to anyone, at any age. I think my first introduction to The Ghostbusters was through The Real Ghostbusters cartoon and the classic Kenner action figure line of the same name. It’s one of those few cartoons you watch as a kid, that is still incredibly watchable as an adult. Once I got a little older, my parents showed me the movies and they both immediately jumped to the top of the list of my favorite movies. I am terrible at quoting movies, but Ghostbusters is one of the few movies I could probably quote from beginning to end, verbatim. The 2nd one, while not as critically acclaimed, is still one of my favorites as well.
Gallery 1988 asked me to be a part of their official Ghostbusters art show, celebrating the 30th anniversary of the movie, and I was incredibly honored to be a part of it. Back during Crazy 4 Cult, when I did The Thing poster, Ghostbusters was on the short list of movies that I wanted to do in this old comic book style. This time, focusing on one of my favorite comedic scenes in the movie, with an 80’s title splash layout, complete with introductions and legal type.
Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to get the artwork printed in time for the New York stop, but it’s available to view at the LA stop, in their west gallery on Melrose. It will then travel to Chicago and end in San Diego during Comic-Con. The only way to buy the print is to attend these stops. If there are leftovers, they will be available on the Gallery 1988 website after the Comic-Con stop ends. If they sell out, I will have some AP’s that I will put up on my site. I’d suggest, if you can, to make it to one of these stops to check out this piece, and all the other great artwork as well.
