Galley 1988 Announces Jerrod Maruyama Solo Art Show, Cutesy Opening On October 25

Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles has announced Jerrod Maruyama’s solo art show. Cutesy will open later this month.

The artist describes the show:

“My work has always been labeled Cutesy. Sometimes that is meant as a compliment. Other times – like in college – not so much. But no matter what the reaction might be over the years, I continue to salute the cute. I respect its power and mass appeal. Cute is timeless. Cute is emotional. It cuts to the heart. It evokes a gut reaction. And isn’t that what we want from art?

This show is a celebration of all things cute. It is a random collection of inspiration, nostalgia and pop culture. Each image attempts to present its subject matter in the cutest way possible. As is the case with all my work, I want to get to the heart of the appeal of my subject. I never want to force-fit a topic into my style. I want to boil it down to its most basic elements. I don’t want to get in the way. I just want to present what we love about these characters and stories in their most concentrated state. That is what I hope to achieve with this show. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed creating it.”

The show opens Friday, October 25th and will run through November 9th.

Mondo presents “It’s An Art Show, Charlie Brown” Opening On November 15

“It’s An Art Show, Charlie Brown” celebrates the Peanuts characters with 16 iconic Peanuts panels and strips by the legendary creator Charles M. Schulz produced as screenprinted posters. In addition to these incredible screenprinted posters, the gallery will also host a pop-up shop from kindred spirits Super7, who will be on hand with an awesome assortment of officially licensed Peanuts collectibles. 

The show kicks off a year of celebrations for the brand’s big anniversary – October 2, 2020 will mark 70 years since the first Peanuts strip appeared in seven American newspapers.

“This show has been a Mondo dream forever, and the Peanuts team have been amazing to work with,” said Mondo Creative Director Mitch Putnam. “Focusing on single panels and removing the story really recontextualizes Schulz’s work in a cool way.”

Suntup Editions Announces Misery UK Covers Collection Print By Paul Bryn Davies

Suntup Editions announces their second print by artist Paul Bryn Davies in The Covers Collection. Last year, they had the honor of including Paul’s art from the first edition U.K. paperback cover of IT. This month, Suntup brings you his cover art from the first edition U.K. paperback of Misery. This iconic cover art can now be enjoyed for the very first time without cover text.

Stephen King’s novel Misery made its debut in June 1987, but it would not be released in paperback until 1988. Constant readers in the U.K. were treated to a very different kind of artwork upon the paperback release. Previous covers had featured either a typewriter, or a shadow of Annie across the wall, making Davies the artist who holds the distinction for first rendering Annie Wilkes.

One of the major differences between the 1990 film adaptation of Misery and the novel is the movie’s slow burn to discovering Annie’s insanity. In earlier parts of the movie, she is portrayed as wholesome, hospitable, and even demure, but from the very first pages of Stephen King’s novel, Paul Sheldon describes Annie Wilkes as “dangerously crazy… giving only one thing: a feeling of unease deepening steadily toward terror.” Davies depiction portrays the wide-eyed mania evident in Wilkes right from the start.

– Signed and authorized by the original cover artist.
– Limited to only 50 copies of each size worldwide, plus 3 Artist Proofs and 3 Publisher Proofs for private distribution.

Check Out The New Doctor Sleep Poster

Warner Bros. released a new Doctor Sleep poster teasing Danny Torrance’s (Ewan McGregor) return to the Overlook Hotel where his nightmare began.

Doctor Sleep continues the story of Danny Torrance, 40 years after his terrifying stay at the Overlook Hotel in The Shining. Ewan McGregor, Rebecca Ferguson and newcomer Kyliegh Curran star in the supernatural thriller, directed by Mike Flanagan, from his own screenplay based upon the novel by Stephen King.

Still irrevocably scarred by the trauma he endured as a child at the Overlook, Dan Torrance has fought to find some semblance of peace. But that peace is shattered when he encounters Abra, a courageous teenager with her own powerful extrasensory gift, known as the “shine.” Instinctively recognizing that Dan shares her power, Abra has sought him out, desperate for his help against the merciless Rose the Hat and her followers, The True Knot, who feed off the shine of innocents in their quest for immortality. Forming an unlikely alliance, Dan and Abra engage in a brutal life-or-death battle with Rose. Abra’s innocence and fearless embrace of her shine compel Dan to call upon his own powers as never before—at once facing his fears and reawakening the ghosts of the past.

Adapted from Stephen King’s bestselling sequel, the movie stars Ewan McGregor (Star Wars: Episodes I, II & III, T2 Trainspotting) as Dan Torrance, Rebecca Ferguson (the Mission: Impossible films, The Greatest Showman) as Rose the Hat, and Kyliegh Curran, in her major feature film debut, as Abra. The main ensemble cast also includes Carl Lumbly, Zahn McClarnon, Emily Alyn Lind, Bruce Greenwood, Jocelin Donahue, Alex Essoe and Cliff Curtis.

Doctor Sleep was written and directed by Mike Flanagan (The Haunting of Hill House). Trevor Macy and Jon Berg produced the film, with Roy Lee, Scott Lumpkin, Akiva Goldsman and Kevin McCormick serving as executive producers.

Doctor Sleep will arrive in theaters on November 8.

Update: A second poster was also released. Check it out below:

Mondo Announces Modern Age of Marvel Comics Print By Tom Whalen

Tomorrow, Mondo will release the Modern Age of Marvel Comics poster by Tom Whalen.

Tom shared,  “I’ve been a Marvel kid since 6th grade, so when Mondo asked me to illustrate a poster celebrating Marvel’s Modern Age, I couldn’t say “yes” quickly enough. It wasn’t until a few minutes after my affirmative reply that I realized what a massive undertaking this would be. That’s precisely when the questions started to flood my mind: How would I incorporate 30+ years of Marvel lore into a single image? Silver Centurion or Extremis Armor? How many X-Men? Magneto or Mr. Sinister? Miles? Gwen? Peter? All of ‘em?” 

“After much debating, adding, deleting, resizing, shifting, pushing and pulling, I hope I’ve managed to encapsulate some of the characters that make this age of Marvel stories special to so many people around the world. At the very least, I think the 6th grade me would approve.”

The poster will be on sale tomorrow (9/26) at a random time via mondotees.com.

Check Out The New Watchmen Poster

HBO has released a new poster for Watchmen, featuring star Regina King as the sequel series’ protagonist.

Set in an alternate history where “superheroes” are treated as outlaws, Watchmen embraces the nostalgia of the original groundbreaking graphic novel while attempting to break new ground of its own. Originally published as a 12-issue miniseries beginning in 1986, Watchmen quickly become one of sequential art’s most acclaimed stories. The original story centers on a murder-mystery before unfolding into a planet-altering conspiracy that ultimately asks where the fine line is drawn between heroes and villains. Check out the original comic for yourself by purchasing it here.

The series is made up of an ensemble cast that includes Jeremy Irons (Justice League) as an older Ozymandias, Regina King (The Leftovers), Don Johnson (Django Unchained), Louis Gossett Jr. (Hap and Leonard), Tim Blake Nelson (Colossal), Adelaide Clemens (Rectify), Andrew Howard (Bates Motel), Frances Fisher (Masters of Sex), Jacob Ming-Trent (White Famous), Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (The Handmaid’s Tale), Sara Vickers (The Crown), Tom Mison (Sleepy Hollow), Jean Smart (Fargo) as a mysterious FBI agent, and James Wolk (Zoo, Tell Me a Story).

Lindelof serves as creator, writer, showrunner, and executive producer on the Watchmen series, with Tom Spezialy, Stephen Williams, and Joseph Iberti also executive producing. Nicole Kassell will executive produce and direct the pilot. The series comes from Lindelof’s White Rabbit in association with Warner Bros. Television and is based on the DC Comics characters.

Watchmen will premiere on HBO on October 20 at 9PM.
