What do you get when you cross this classic SNL sketch with this totally rad film???
My “Toonces” piece for the secret/surprise Saturday Night Live show at Gallery 1988. Not even sure how to describe what illustration style I used here … kind of a mashup between modern CGI and really lame ’80s movie computer animation (the glowing cliff scene at the bottom, etc.) which sorta fits for a DRIVE spoof. (If you haven’t seen the film, you should!)
Incidentally, I am shocked SHOCKED out of my mind that no one did either of the first two ideas I was going to spoof for this show … I thought for sure someone would do the same thing, so I picked Toonces instead. But since we weren’t allowed to share our artwork before the opening, it was a total surprise what anyone else did! I think I’ll finish those ideas up to post here later just for fun. 
Thanks again to Gallery 1988 for inviting me to be in this fun show and congrats on the new location! The SNL artwork will be up at their new space — 7308 Melrose Avenue, LA — until April 20th.

Poster #3 in my BOND. REDESIGNED BOND. portfolio project – FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE. This one is out now at the suggestion of Jeff who was the first person to note which one I should finish next. (Feel free to make your own requests in the comments field that I added.) This is one of the more surreal pieces of the pack … I think I was watching too much of the classic Avengers while working on it. :)
James Bond will return in MOONRAKER (the poster, that is) per Karen’s request!
The master key for the whole work-in-progress project is here.
