kaiju pee wee by strongstuff kaiju pee wee by strongstuff
here's my entry for gallery 1988's "i know you art, but what am i?" pee wee herman themed show, which opens this friday, july 29th, at their venice location.

ok, confession time: i've never seen "pee wee's big adventure".

*crickets.*

well, at least, not all of the way through. i have nothing against it, it's just one of those movies that wasn't on my radar (there are a lot more, but we won't get into that right now).

at any rate, one of the few factoids about this movie that i was very aware of is the fact that godzilla makes an impromptu (and illegal, according to his owner, toho) appearance in it... and that's all i needed to know when deciding what angle to play in my tribute.

if you're in LA, check out the show this friday. there are a ton of talented artists participating, including battery mates dave perillo and scott derby.

Awesome work, sir! When I read, "I've never seen 'Pee-Wee's Big Adventure'", in your artist's comments, I almost did a spit-take :XD:

This looks great! My photography teacher here in Berlin actually won an Emmy in the 80's for his art direction on the show! Things crazy heavy... ;)

This is a print we'll HAVE to have! I won't even hold it against you that you've never seen the sacredness that is PEE WEE! I Love it so much I might just marry it!
