New Pieces for Ltd. Gallery show happening April 2013

I thought I'd give a sneakpeak of what I've been working on. These paintings are for a show happening in April 2013 at the Ltd. Gallery in Seattle, WA. Ltd is a pop art gallery and so all the pieces I will be showing there will be tributes and parodies. (Some of these aren't even titled yet). I've always enjoyed painting tributes of my favorite things, so I'm thrilled to be working on an entire body of work based on some of my artistic influences, favorite characters, stories, etc. Anyways, hope you like...

Here's the show info:

 

 

"Icons & Influences" at Ltd. Gallery
Group show with Mike Capp - April 2013

30 - 40 new paintings by Justin Hillgrove and Mike Capp. All of the pieces will feature favorite pop/cult icons with the usual Hillgrove or Capp spin.

  5. Here are some of my thoughts for the Charlie Brown image...

    "Charlie Brown: Peanuts Killer", "No More Mister Nice Guy", "Pistol Packin' Charlie", "Satan's Waitin'", "Variations on a Mexican Hat Dance", "Nightmare on Peanuts Avenue", "Goodnight Assholes" "Great Pumpkin My Ass!", "The nightmare before a Charlie Brown Christmas"...

  25. The Studio Ghibli (Hayao Miyazaki) / Where The Wild Things Are tribute (Maurice Sendak) piece should TOTALLY be made into an American Library Association "READ" poster http://www.alastore.ala.org/SearchResult.aspx?CategoryID=219

  26. Will the Peanuts/Ash be available for purchase? I know you said at the showing in April but what about on your site? Boy would I love to get that for Christmas.

  27. You should totally put the 'Where the Wild Things Are' on deviantART. So many people would love and feature your work. There is nothing like this on there and it would be perfect!
