When asked if I'd like to contribute to the 2nd round of the ever popular Quentin vs. Coen art show, I wanted to try something obscure since several artists seemed to focus on the same films (myself included). For those that may not know, Tarantino wrote the original screenplay for NBK. It was heavily revised to the point that Tarantino hardly claimed it, however there is the was his baby. As a big fan of the film I saw this as an opportunity to deviate. I was 16 when NBK was released and I vividly recall the explosion of violence, the unique delivery, the amazing soundtrack and overall emotional roller coaster.  Regardless of how many times I've seen it since, it still has the same affect on me. NBK is a perfect storm of comedy, horror, drama,  and art...and it was a pleasure to commemorate. I also feel obligated to add that Rodney Dangerfield was robbed of an Oscar!

John Landis/Sexual Chocolate

It is with great honor that I mention that we just sold some of our Sexual Chocolate posters to the one and only writer/director/producer John Landis. For those that don't know, Mr. Landis not only directed Coming to America, but he's also responsible for classic films such as Animal HouseBlues BrothersKentucky Fried Movie, etc. I should also add that he directed the "Thriller" video which scared the shit out of me as a kid...still does kind of.

As such a big fan of his work, I decided to create a small drawing to include in his order. This is that drawing. Don't expect the same treatment Michael Bay!!
