Gallery 1988’s annual Crazy 4 Cult art show has quickly become a phenomenon, with huge crowds and high profile buyers like Kevin Smith and Joss Whedon snapping up work by the cream of the underground/urban scene. Following 2011’s critically acclaimed first volume, here’s the eagerly awaited second selection of surprising, beautiful and just plain cool cult movie-inspired artwork.
Gallery 1998 has quickly become one of the world’s most talked about art galleries. Opened in 2004 on the famous corner of Melrose and La Brea, by California natives Katie Cromwell and Jensen Karp, the gallery has become the nation’s number one destination for pop-culture themed artwork and the premiere venue to witness the rise of emerging artists before they break. Openings at the gallery have seen upwards of 2,500 people attending in one night, including celebrities such as Guillermo Del Toro, J.J. Abrams, Damon Lindelof, Hayley Williams, Seth Rogen, Michael Cera, Aaron Paul, Neil Patrick Harris, and Joss Whedon admiring the walls. Their annual show Crazy 4 Cult receives worldwide press (faced by the show’s hosts, filmmakers Kevin Smith and Scott Mosier) and over a million website hits on the day of the opening reception.

Bamboo has lots of uses beyond just being panda food. Things like bikes, roads, scaffolding, and musical instruments are made from the fast-growing grass. But unless you are participating in a tropical-themed LARP, you probably wouldn’t want a shirt made from bamboo stalks. So why do bamboo bed sheets make any sense? Because yarn extracted from […]
If you want to work in tech, but don’t have any desire to code web apps to help businesses sell things to other business, you might want to consider a career in cybersecurity. Judging from the apparent complete infiltration of Russian hackers in American cyberspace, it seems fair to speculate that there’s a major shortage of […]
All moms are different. But all moms like getting flowers on Mother’s Day, and that’s a fact (not, however a fact we can document in any fashion.) Instead of getting chewed out for forgetting to call her on the second Sunday of May, you can take care of it ahead of time with Teleflora’s flower […]
