decided to whip up this fun little True Detective piece before the final episode. I don’t know what brought me to do an Adventure Time crossover but here it is XD
TOMORROW we release this incredible new print by Anthony Petrie, inspired by True Detective! We are such huge fans of this show, that we couldn’t wait to pay tribute. Anthony Petrie knocked it out of the park! This print is stunning. It’s 24x36 inches, numbered edition of 100, and $40.00. It will be available tomorrow on our website, so stay tuned on our Facebook page and twitter (@galleries1988) for the release.

‘Calvin & Hobbes’ Creator Bill Watterson Releases First New Cartoon In 19 Years
By Andy Khouri
Immense kudos to filmmakers Dave Kellett and Fred Schroeder, whose new documentary Stripped was apparently so awesome that it coaxed the famously elusive Bill Watterson to come out of retirement and create his first cartoon (that the public has seen, anyway) since concluding his work on Calvin & Hobbes nearly 20 years ago. The piece will serve as the poster for the film, which profiles the endangered art form of newspaper comic strips in the current economic and media climates.
English artist Craig Davison creates series of paintings that beautifully illustrate the awesome power of childhood imagination and our limitless ability to play pretend as our favorite movie characters. He draws from a wide variety of movies, but the pieces seen here all revolve around Star Wars.
Kids play their hearts in the foreground while their shadows loom larger than life in the background as the fictional characters they’re pretending to be. Tree branches have become light sabers, cardboard tubes and a hair dryer work equally well as blasters, a garbage can and a colander are all you need to be R2-D2 and C3PO, and a pair of headphones serve as Princess Leia’s cinnamon bun hairdo.
Visit Craig Davison’s website to check out more of his delightful and nostalgic artwork. Then go grab a tree branch and meet us at the park for a light saber duel.
