The twist is that the images only show a portion of the character.

I love this print by Jerrod Maruyama titles So Happy Together; it just makes me smile ear to ear. The image is nostalgic, whimsical, adorable and joyful.
Maruyama contributed the piece for the Get a Room show that opened tonight at Bottleneck Gallery in Brooklyn, NY and will run through March 8th.
Online sales will begin on Saturday, February 16th. Followers of Bottleneck Gallery on Facebook can preview all of the art for the show in a special preview window offered just before the physical show opens. Please check their site for more details and information about ordering. There will be a very limited number of giclee prints available.
So Happy Together By Jerrod Maruyama 16″ x 16″ Giclee Print
The theme revolves around art inspired by prominent characters of fiction, historical reference, or pop culture, and their relationship with their iconic “weapon,” that one thing that is inextricably tied to their character. Perhaps their weapon is provocative like seduction, or stealth, or sex, or power. Or perhaps its that one item that brought them fame or dishonor, like Hendrix’ guitar, Lenny Bruce’s microphone, or a samurai’s final honorable act of seppuku.
But it could and should live in traditional weapons from pop culture and fictional influences too. It could be Hellboy wielding his mighty Right Fist of Doom, Slim Pickens as Major Kong riding The Bomb to oblivion in Dr. Strangelove, or the ending scene of Romeo and Juliet with the fateful poisoned dagger. Perhaps it’s Indiana Jones cracking his bullwhip, Alabama Worley’s final act of desperation with the corkscrew in True Romance, Peter Vincent warding off vampires with his cross in Fright Night, or Mad Max tearing down the ripped up desert asphalt in the last of the V-8 Interceptors.
Some of the artists for the event include: Tracie Ching, Laurent Durieux, Blunt Graffix, Bruce Yan, Bruce, White, Chris Harper, Craig Drake, Adam Wheatley, Adam Worsell, AJ Masthay, Ale Giorgini, Ali Castro, Justin Anville, Godmachine, Ian Glaubinger, Joshua Budich, JP Valderrama, Marie Bergeron, Matt Ferguson, Tim Doyle and Trev Murphy.
Whatever the weapon of choice, the gauntlet has been thrown down and the artists have seized the challenge with some amazingly clever concepts. We’ve already seen a few of the artist previews and they are proving to be a testament of how exhilarating the variations of this theme can be.
