So, off the heels of the Freddi C. / J. Shea show in SF, we're ready to announce the winners of the Cult Movie poster contest here in LA. Let's first go over what the Grand Prize winnger gets:
A signed Crazy 4 Cult poster by some of our attendees -
Top row - Michael Rapaport (True Romance, Higher Learning, etc.), Samuel L. Jackson (Pulp Fiction, Snakes on a Plane, everything), Richard Kelley (writer/director of Donnie Darko)
Bottom row - Edgar Wright (writer/director of Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz), Scott Mosier (producer of Clerks, Mallrats) and Kevin Smith (writer/director of Clerks, Mallrats, etc.)
Pretty gosh darn serious there. The winner also gets Artist Proof's of both the Greg Simkins "Ed's Losing" print and the Matt Dangler Willy Wonka print (both available, or going to be available, on crazy4cult.com).
We also selected 4 runners-up, who did get all the movies correct, but were not the ONE selected (dare I say "Our Neo"). We did another drawing, and these 4 people will win one, or both, of these Kevin Smith/View Askew products:
Randall Mooby's Shirt
OK, so there were 28 movies represented on the poster, which I would list here, but I find very boring. If you want the list, send me an email.
8 people got all 28 movies in their answer and Brian Librot was the email we selected! (P.S. this is the first time these winners will find out, as I haven't emailed them yet). The Runners-Up are Kieron Menzies, Max V., Emily Wong and Jesse Yu.
CONGRATS to all our winners!
The press is still reeling in from Crazy 4 Cult, as well as just the gallery in general. Check out this really great paparzzi picture of Nicky Hilton moving into her new house carrying Misha's Mario Tea Party piece she picked up from G1988.
"Click HERE for MTV's article." Some great pics there too. I spot Isaac Pierro, Misha and Peter Gronquist (who will be married this weekend, CONGRATS!).
"Click HERE for G4's TV segment."
And here's a picture of Zak Knutson, the donkey f*cker from "Clerks 2," pointing this himself in Misha's "Mooby's Last Supper."
It was cool to see him excited to be "immortilized" (his words) in a painting. The banging a donkey thing is just a detail.
This week will begin the sneak peeks at pieces for our next show in LA, "The Guys' Guys," which will feature artwork from Matt "Lebron" Dangler, Travis Lampe, Roland Tamayo, Zach Johnsen, Rich Tuzon, Jose Emroca Flores, Parskid, Andrew Wilson, Peter Taylor and The (Dave) Chung! This puppu will open August 14 and trust me when I say these guys are stepping it up! But for now....I'm going to go breathe.
