I spend a lot of time on the internet looking for artists creating retro-themed and pop-culture influenced art, but sometimes you only have to go as far as your own backyard to find wonderful things. A couple of weekends ago I happened to stop by a local art show and discovered the wonderful artwork of Oklahoma artist Jerry Bennett.
“It’s a Trap” (get it?) is just one of three prints I picked up at the show. I love a good crossover, even more so between two retro properties, so once I saw Admiral Ackbar with the Ghostbusters trap (it took me a second to “get it”), I knew I had to have it. I ended up getting three prints for $20, a phenomenal deal. Jerry had tons of other Star Wars, comic book, superhero, film, and pop culture inspired pieces of art on display.
I also swiped a couple of Jerry’s business cards at the show, which I’ll be placing inside my framed prints as well.
