here's my entry for gallery 1988's massive stand-up-comedian-themed"is this thing on?" show, which opens tonight!
this is one yet another of the gallery's infamous group shows and promises to showcase over 100 artists uniquely interpreting their favorite stand up legends such as andy kaufman, richard pryor, redd foxx, and steve martin.
when the show invite went out way back in june, i had a hard time picking which comedian i'd like to illustrate. eventually i chose robin williams because of his huge body of work that i would have to draw from. after an abandoned (yet exploratory) first draft, this mork-based propaganda design just seemed to make the most sense for a poster.
make sure to check out the gallery 1988 website to see (and/or buy) all of the art once the show has opened.
