|Dear Gournal... - Adam Limbert|
Adam Limbert's "Dear Gournal..." print is the perfect tribute to this stellar comedy. I've got to give it to Limbert for the "gournal" reference in the title, I had completely forgotten that that's what Paul Rudd's character, Andy, called his journal (thanks Internet) - and good pull Adam! It's a fairly minimalist poster, but as we all know, a poster doesn't need to be packed to the gill with content to be awesome / fantastic / great. The "Dear Gournal..." print is available through Gallery 1988's online storefront for $40. The signed and numbered print is limited to an edition of 35 and measures 12" x 18".

It hasn't been very long since I was singing the praises of another Budich piece of pop culture candy, but it seems he's done it again with this amazing print titled "I'm Gonna Go Hump the Fridge." For those of us that have seen the film, this image should bring back a lot of very funny memories. I'm not really breaking any new ground by saying that Christopher Meloni's performance (yeah, the guy from Law & Order: SVU) as Gene is easily one of the best things about Wet Hot, but the truth must be set free. Budich's wonderful print is still somehow available for only $30 through Gallery 1988, is limited to 50 prints and measures 12" x 24". To see more of Joshua's artwork, visit his website and store where you can purchase some excellent prints. While you're there, you should probably subscribe to his mailing list, you know, just cause.
Rich Pellegrino's portraits are always a delight to see. I'm not sure if it's the color, the painting style, the characters' expressions, or all of the above, but the paintings seem to be absolutely bursting with life. To pick up one of these fantastic prints ("Coop" or "Gene") it will only cost you $15 ($15!) from the Gallery 1988 website. The prints measure 8.5" x 11", but the actual images measure 5.5" x 5.5", with both portraits limited to an edition of 25. Both prints are signed and numbered. To learn more about Rich Pellegrino head over to his portfolio and blog.
That's it! Visit the Gallery 1988 site for more information and plenty of other great prints and paintings still available. Tomorrow, I'll be taking a look at a very cool book for one of my favorite art shows.
