Frank Onorati is a friend of the site and was lucky enough to attend the opening of the Garbage Pail Kids art show at Gallery 1988 in Melrose, California. The show is currently open and runs through October 1, 2011.
Frank sent over lots of pics. Of course, my favorites were the ones that reference pop culture icons. Behold!
Derek Deal “Michael Mutant”
Rhys Cooper “2nd Hand Rob”
Dave MacDowell “Jules Drools”
Rhys Cooper “Allen Hunter”
Brandon Sopinsky “Yicchy Mickey and the Return Of Icky Mouse”
Joey Spiotto “Alien Ian”
Chuck BB “Savage Stuart”
Eric Tan “Eerie Eric”
These pictures make me want to head to eBay to complete my set of vintage Garbage Pail Kids cards. If you like any of those awesome illustrations from the show, you can buy prints and even some of the original paintings over on the Gallery 1988 site.
A HUGE thanks to Frank for sharing his great pictures!
