Opening at Gallery 1988: A Tribute to Judd Apatow

Tonight was the opening reception for an art show designed around the myriad works of writer-producer-director Judd Apatow–from Freaks and Geeks to Funny People, all of his characters have been reinterpreted in some incredibly different ways…

I didn’t snag a picture of the line, but Judd did:

Toward the center of the picture there’s two guys in blue jackets. I’m the one on the left. I had been waiting in line for about an hour at that point…

I finally got in and snagged a free beer, then began to wander around and look at the paintings…

Good and packed… It made getting any decent pictures kind of difficult…
This was one of the first pieces to catch my eye since Walk Hard is one of my favorite comedies… And this is Velvet Dewey, treated with the same love and care as Vegas-Era Elvis. Jesco White would probably die to have it.
One of the artists did a whole series of 40-Year-Old Virgin action figure designs. Above that you have brad-jointed figures (there’s gotta be a better term for them [y’know, for kids!])


This one I don’t quite understand. And, yes, there’s a penis under there.



I really wish I had gotten a better picture of this one. Because it was fucking awesome.
