Welcome to Jurassic Park... Take a look at my all new Jurassic Park inspired print for the Supachute curated show Summerland Movie Club! The show is a tribute to everyone's favorite summer movies. I choose what is one of my favorite summer blockbusters and probably some of yours too. Also, I bet you guys are already humming the Jurassic Park theme song in your head... you're welcome. Not only do I love the movie but I'm a huge dinosaur but too. My favorite is the Ankylosaurus whose kind of like a prehistoric armored turtle. What about you? Anyways, the show opened Saturday, July 12th at Leanna Lin's Wonderland, a really cool gallery/shop in Los Angeles. If you are in the neighborhood I highly recommend checking out the show and shop which runs until August 24th. My print is available for purchase direct from the gallery but if it sells out I will have a limited amount for sale myself after the show ends in August. If you're interested in reserving/buying one direct from me just drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can work out the details. Print details below:
Have a look at my contribution to the 4th Annual Spoke Art "Quentin vs Coen" show. Inspired by The Big Lebowski because well, I friggin' love that movie and can never get enough of doodling The Dude and company. The show opened on July 5th in San Francisco at the Spoke Art gallery and there were a ton of cool pieces inspired by 2 amazing sets of filmmakers. My print actually sold out at the show but I will a limited amount of prints to sell on my own once the show ends on July 26th. If you're interested in reserving/buying one direct from me just drop me an email at email@example.com and we can work out the details. I encourage you to go check out the show in you're in San Fran cause there are some really great pieces. Print details below:
Howdy folks! I've got some all new prints coming out to help decorate your lives in style! I know what you are thinking, "What does a Muppet and an odd-ball 70's Hong Kong kaiju fighting superhero have to do with each other?". And there is to that is... nothing! I just felt like drawing 2 cool things I like and making some limited edition prints. Here is are the print details for each one:
Title: Gonzo the Great
Medium: Giclee Archival Print Edition: 12
If you are interested in purchasing one of these prints, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for details. You can also pick one up from me at any upcoming conventions like Wizard World Philly, Retro Con or Baltimore Comic Con as long as I have some left.
Also, if you have no idea who or what Inframan is then check out the trailer right here. You won't regret or wish you got those 2 minutes and 58 seconds of your life back. Promise. What can I say, I'm nostalgic for almost my entire childhood. :)
Wow. Just wow. I still can't believe this has/is happening. The idea
that I am doing a fully licensed piece of art work for STAR WARS blows
my mind!? When Acme Archives approached me early this year about doing a
piece of Star Wars artwork in conjunction with "May the 4th Be With
You" and Star Wars Weekends at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida I
was blown away. 2 of my favorite things in the world; Walt Disney World
AND Star Wars, sign me up!
The concept I came up with was kind of a travel/propaganda style poster
for Endor featuring everyone's favorite (and loveable) furry forest
creatures; Ewoks! Here is a glimpse at my actual process for "Endor: Worth Fighting For!" from thumbnail to final-ish sketch to color tests to final!
Anyways, the print will go on sale from Acme Archives on their website Dark Ink Art starting May 4th at 1:00pm PST. After that, the print will go on sale exclusively at Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World starting May 16th for Star Wars Weekends and Disney World's website. I am not sure about how many prints will be made available/set aside for the Dark Ink Art website and Disney World so you will have to follow Acme Archives on Twitter for more info. I do know that the print will be a limited edition run of 150 total, just not sure of the breakdown yet. Here are the rest of the print details:
Title: Endor: Worth Fighting For!
Medium: 6 Color Screen Print on 80lb French Speckletone Starch Mint Paper Edition: 150
Oh and one final note. Star Wars Weekends starts Friday May 16 and runs through Sunday, June 15, 2014 (obviously only happens on the weekends) at Disney's Hollywood Studios. I will actually be attending during the first weekend to take in some of the festivities as I've never been to SW Weekends. If you find yourself in the parks that weekend be sure to tweet me and maybe say hello! I love meeting fans! For all the info about Star Wars Weekends, please visit Disney's website!
This project really has been a dream come true. Gallery 1988 and Sony Pictures are celebrating the 30th (?!) anniversary of Ghostbusters, a truly amazing movie! Gallery 1988 put together "a traveling art show to celebrate the 30th anniversary of this incredible film including original artwork, limited edition prints & apparel". The show open this past weekend (April 19th) in NYC in Tribeca right around the corner from the GB firehouse which I got to visit!
Each artist was asked to create their own unique take on this amazing movie and this is what I came up with! Kind of a "Ghostbusters meets Bewitched" vibe. The traveling art show is currently in NYC but will also be popping up in Chicago, LA and then finally in San Diego Comic Con this summer. If you are interested in purchasing my officially licensed print or any others from the show you must buy them in person at each gallery location; no online sales except for a few select pieces. Head on over to http://www.ghostbusters30th.com for more info or to Gallery 1988's blog.
You can also email me direct if you have any questions about my piece or how to purchase one! email@example.com
Title: That's a Big Twinkie
Medium: 3 Color Screen Print on 80lb French Dur-o-tone Orange Butcher Paper Edition: 50
My contribution to Gallery 1988's 10 Year Anniversary show; "The Subtle Art of Pop Culture". The idea/theme of the show was to depict something from pop culture but without it "screaming" the subject matter. I choose to depict the iconic diner "Hawthorne Diner" from the cult 1994 hit; Pulp Fiction.
Also, that's supposed to be me walking in front of the diner in the red shirt. Just because...
On Sunday, March 30th I will be teaching my first
drawing class! It's called "Super Awesome Cartooning" and will be at
Around the Corner Art Center in Morganville, NJ. I'll be teaching kids
to simplify what they see and draw fun characters (both original and pop
culture based)! All supplies included and the first class is free!
You must email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your spot as space is limited. See flyer below for more
details! The first class is kind of a demo/introductory to what I plan to do for future classes. Each drawing class will be an hour and a half, held once a week over the course of a continuous 8 week session. For information like pricing and other details, please contact Around the Corner Center.
It's been a while since I've created a print (or even a series of prints) for myself. I recently decided to create a fun little screen print series based around the number 4. I call this series "4x4". I decided to do some of my favorite subjects for each print. Ninja Turtles, The Beatles and 90's NHL All Stars East and West. Each print:
And each print will cost $4.00 each. Each one will be signed and numbered (editions of 50) and printed on a cool orange textured paper. The prints should be available for purchase in my store next month once I get them back from the printer! Stay tuned...
This is all new Back to the Future inspired piece was my contribution to this year's Crazy 4 Cult show. If you are not familiar with Crazy 4 Cult, it is Gallery 1988's biggest show ever year and was held in NYC again. The show opened on Dec. 13th but has since closed. There was some really amazing work there and I hope everyone had a chance to see it, even in person.
"The Tannen Family: Through the Years" is probably the most detailed and complicated piece I've ever done. I had to do a lot of research to make sure all the information was accurate. I had to take liberties with some info because it just does not exist out there so I took some educated guesses. Here is a close-up shot of the bottom portion which contains detailed information about each different Tannen; past, present, alternate present, future and alternate future!
Even though the show has closed you can still purchase the print from the gallery's website here:
Well that was a hoot! This past Friday I had an art show open at Gallery 1988 in LA (as if you didn't know from my massive bombardment of tweets, Facebook posts, smoke signals, door to door campaigning, etc.) and just like that... it's all over! The show was called "Rock, Paper, Scissors" and was the culmination of 2 amazing artists (Brad Hill and Steff Bomb), 1 silly doodler (me), 3 different mediums and just about a year in the making. The show was focused on how 3 different artists would interpret 21 different movies and TV shows in their own style and medium. Brad created sculptures; Rock. I created prints; Paper. Steff created plush dolls; Scissors. Rocks, Paper, Scissors. As an added bonus we were all fortunate to actually attend the show (none of us live in or near California) and had a grand ol' time! Before this show I had only known these artists by their work but never actually knew them personally. Once we found out about the show way back in December 2012, my only contact with them was via email but I finally got to meet them for the first time opening night of the show! I could not have asked for 2 better artists to work with, they rule! Unfortunately, they both had to settle for working with me but I guess hanging my silly doodles next to their beautiful works of art only makes theirs look better. :) After coming up with a list of 21 choices (I should say a list of about 100 choices that we had to narrow down to 21) we were off to the races!
The show opening was a blast and I got to meet a lot of fans and even do some sketches for those patient enough to wait! For those who weren't able to attend Brad Hill took a bunch of photos of opening night which you view by clicking here.
If anyone is interested in picking up some of the remaining artwork (all 3 artists), click the link below to head over to Gallery 1988's website and scoring a few things before they are gone forever!
Huge thanks to everyone at Gallery 1988 who made this happen! Thanks to Jensen, Katie, John and Amber!
Below is a collage of all of my pieces as well as each individual one. There were 21 total pieces in all and 1 exclusives giveaway for those who attended the show.

The following is some more info about the show direct from Gallery 1988's website:
Another new show is on its way for G1988! Join us for “Rock Paper Scissors,” a show with three artists in three different mediums. Ian Glaubinger (prints), Steff Bomb (plush) & Brad Hill (sculpture) have picked 30 different pop culture favorites, from TV shows to movies, and they will each create one piece based on them. So we’ll be seeing how each medium has depicted the same characters or scenes you love. A fun experiment and a GREAT show.
Join us Friday, November 15th, at G1988 (East) from 7-10 PM. This will be a LOT OF FUN.
Here are some pics of the "Exclusive Opening Night Fun Pack!:
Remember, I will be giving away these Big Lebowski prints away to the 1st 10 people to come to the show on opening night. Each print (limited edition run of 10) each has a different and unique doodle hand drawn right on the print! See you guys in less then 2 weeks in LA!
Big news everyone! This November I am unbelievably proud to (finally) announce I will have a show opening up at Gallery 1988 (East) in Los Angeles, California! It was a trio show titled "Rock, Paper, Scissors" and featured the artwork of Brad Hill, Steff Bomb and myself! The idea behind this show is a very cool and unique concept. It features 3 artists who all have very different styles in 3 very different mediums. Brad creates beautiful sculptures (rock), I create silly prints (paper) and Steff creates amazing plushies (scissor). We came up with our very own list of 21 movies and TV shows that we will all collectively create in our own unique style and medium. This list is comprised of some fan favorites as well as some really cooky and bizarre choices that I'm not sure have ever been the subjects or sculptures, prints or plushies. I will have limited edition giclee prints for all 21 movies and TV shows in super limited edition quantities for purchase at the gallery (in person and on their website). There will even be a really fun piece for the show where all 3 artists worked together to create, using all 3 mediums in 1 fantastic piece! Myself along with Brad and Steff will all be at the opening reception on November 15th too so hopefully I will see you guys there! As an added bonus, I will have an exclusive print for the first 10 people to attend the show. Each one will have a little doodle on it and will never be for sale. It's a way for me to say thanks to all my fans and give something back! Stay tuned for more details as we get closer...

Take a look at my all new piece, "Animated Americana" inspired by the classic characters of Hanna Barbera. This piece was done exclusively for LTD Art Gallery's all new show "Saturday Morning" which opened this past Friday June, 19th in Seattle. A word about the show:
As a child, Saturday
mornings were a playground for our imaginations. It was the beginning to
the weekend and school was in the rearview mirror. Nothing was sweeter
than waking up early, making your way to living room, and taking a
journey 30 minutes at a time. Ltd is very excited to present our newest
group art show: SATURDAY MORNING. Over 50 artists reflect upon a time
when all they needed was a bowl of cereal, their pajamas....and the TV.
Print and show info:

Hard to believe I've never done a Transformers piece before today. I decided to do this piece because in August I will be attendance at Omega Con 2013 in Bensalem, PA which is quite heavy on Transformers and other awesome 80's toys. Hot Rod has always been my favorite since seeing the original 80's movie; of course being by Judd Nelson doesn't hurt. This all new print will make it's debut at the Omega Con show and any remaining prints will be available in my shop and other cons. Here is some print details:

Medium: Premium White 67lb Cardstock in full color
Have a looky loo at my latest fancy doodle! This all new piece is for the Planet Pulp show "Red", which opens at Hero Complex Gallery and runs July 5th thru July 14th. The all new doodle is called "Maybe It's 'Cause I'm Irish" and is inspired by the character Ellis Boyd 'Red' Redding from one of my absolutely favorite movies; "The Shawshank Redemption". Check out this write-up on the show from /Film:
In the realm of pop culture, there are many uses of the word “red.”
Most obviously there’s the color, usually used to convey either physical
or psychological horror through Hell or blood. It can also be used to
represent love, it’s a movie series starring Bruce Willis, and a main
character’s name in the Shawshank Redemption. That’s just the tip of the crimson iceberg.
And soRed (the disambiguation, not the movie) is both the theme and title of the latest show at the Hero Complex Gallery in Los Angeles. Opening July 5, it’s curated by the awesome online art gallery Planet Pulp, which is finally moving offline and into the physical realm. Artist Jayson Weidel
has recruited over 50 artists from his collective to create unique and
clever art for the topic “Red” and /Film is proud to exclusively provide
your first look at art from the show featuring Hellboy, Judge Dredd, 2001: A Space Odyssey, The Shawshank Redemption, Sunshine, The Shining, Carrie and more.
Be sure to check out the full /Film article for more previews and info about the show! Here is some more info about the show and print:
