“It’s a Trap” by Jerry Bennett

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.

If you want to see more of Jerry’s work, you can find him on Facebook (TheJerryBennett), Instagram (ArtistJerryBennett), and Twitter (ComicBookJer).

I also swiped a couple of Jerry’s business cards at the show, which I’ll be placing inside my framed prints as well.
