Mass Hysteria! An art show about crowds in cult fave movies
Basically, I just wanted to draw a really cute, squeezable Kurt Russell.
My first solo art show, Mass Hysteria!, is all about my favorite pop culture crowds. The inspiration to do large, crowd-based pieces started with my early work in Gallery1988’s group shows, so when they asked me to come up with a theme for my own show, I thought it’d be a fun challenge to see how far I could take that motif. I like showing iconic characters surrounded and overwhelmed by the environments from their respective properties. Then I realized how much work it was to illustrate over 500 individual characters, but it was too late to change my mind.
After I decided on my main theme, I made a list of movies, tv shows, and music videos that I really liked and whittled it down to the ones that could fit within my theme’s criteria. A lot of them were ones I’ve always wanted to do illustrations of, like Big Trouble In Little China or The Warriors. Basically, I just wanted to draw a really cute, squeezable Kurt Russell.
The show will feature over 30 prints, including a 9.5-foot panoramic print that I’m really psyched about.
Mass Hysteria! opens Friday, February 6th and runs through February 28th at Gallery1988 East, 7021 Melrose Ave. Los Angeles, CA 90038.
Opening reception is Fri, Feb 6th from 7-10pm. Treats will be provided by Cafe Dulce, with coffee by Grounded on Melrose.

This alarmingly funny video shows an “Apple Engineer” explaining the company’s forthcoming $999 monitor stand. This guy is better than the “Downfall” meme! Also funny: to see people who had complained vocally about Apple’s lack of truly “pro” gear denouncing it when it finally came along, because it was too pro. Perhaps Apple should have […]
Finally. It’s been almost 3 years.
Even if you feel like AirPods are worth the price tag, you’ve got to admit there’s a certain anxiety that comes with using them. What if I lose them? What if they get wet in the rain? Or drenched in sweat? Or fall into the drink you dropped them into? Shiny tech is great, but […]
With the quick-fix appeal of video games and their own cell phones, it can be tough to keep kids focused on supposedly “educational” toys. And while it may seem counter-intuitive to fight tech with more tech, we’re all in when it comes to the Toybox 3D Printer. We’re not sure if anyone had envisioned a […]
Whether you’re an artist, designer or just organizing a photo album, photo editing software is a must. And software designers know it: Platforms like Photoshop and Lightroom have a ton of helpful features, but you’ll pay for them in spades. Luckily, there’s some competition in the photo editing arena. Right now, Skylum’s Luminar software is […]
