The Goonies: Part of This Complete Breakfast

The 1st of 3 new pieces I have done for what I have dubbed the 3G Show. This show will be held at Gallery 1988 in LA and has work from friends like Dave Perillo, Tom Whalen and Scott Derby. The theme of the show is basically the tri-fecta of awesome 80's movies; The Goonies, Ghostbusters & Gremlins. The only 'rule' for the show was to create 3 separate pieces for each of the 3 movies. I decided to create retro faux cereal boxes for each of the 3 movies, (And yes, I am aware that all 3 of these movies had fun breakfast cereal tie-ins already, some with multiple ones... I'm looking at you Ghosbusters...) each with there own spin on it. One new technique I tried on all of them was photographing real cereal and then photoshopping them onto the boxes 'cause i thought that would be cool. Can anyone guess what I used for this cereal? I'll give you a hint... it's 2 different cereals. Give up!? I used Fruity Pebbles and Count Chocula marshmallows (photoshopped gold to look like doubloons). This was also awesome because I love cereal so it gave me an excuse to buy more then just my normal 1 box per food shopping trip! Each of these pieces will be available for purchase once the show opens on September 3rd at the actual gallery in LA or through their website. There will be 2 versions of each of the 3 pieces. There will be a (2) 12" x 12" signed giclee stretched canvas prints of each piece for 100 beans as well at (15) 12" x 12" signed giclee watercolor paper prints for 50 beans. I will post the other 2 pieces later on to keep the suspense rolling...
