Sew/Cute – A Two Person Art Show at Gallery 1988

 

I have teamed up with OH SEW NERDY for my very first Two-Person art show opening at GALLERY 1988 March 23rd! Opening reception will take place on Friday March 23rd from 7:00 -9:00 PM. We’ll both be at the gallery that night to kick off this super-fun exhibition.

It’s an honor to be asked by Gallery 1988 to participate in this show. I love working with this gallery. They constantly bring exciting and interesting shows featuring a unique blend of artists and creators.  I am thrilled to bring you a line-up of 14 brand new images featuring the cutest casts from the world of Pop Culture. I have been waiting a long time to do some of these properties and this exhibit is the perfect showcase for them. From The Breakfast Club (shown above) to Ghostbusters and Stranger Things, I’ve tried to cover a wide range of characters with my personal approach to “cute-ification”. Can’t wait to share them all with you.

I’ll have a very limited number of prints available for each image. The framed pieces for the show will also be available for purchase. Plus – I’ll have a little something to give away with each purchase to the first few customers on opening night! Details to come.

OH SEW NERDY will be bringing his unique combination of Cross-stitch and pop culture goodness. He’s got a bunch of one-of-a-kind pieces that are just so clever and ready to hang!

We hope our happy little show punches you in the face with cuteness and charm. Hope to see you at the gallery opening night. Online sales to follow soon after.

The show will be on display in the gallery through April 14th.

Gallery 1988 is located at 7308 Melrose Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90046              Phone: (323) 937-7088 • email: info@gallery1988.com

Eyes On Gotham – Artists Proof Sale

EYES ON GOTHAM (Artist Proof) PRICE: $75 16" x 20" Signed and Numbered Fine Art Giclee

EYES ON GOTHAM (Artist Proof)
PRICE: $75
16″ x 20″
Signed and Numbered
Fine Art Giclee

 

I have just ten (10) Artist Proof Prints available for sale. Due to demand and technical concerns with my web store, I am trying something a little different this time. I will draw 10 names at random to decide who will have access to purchase the print. Not the best solution, I know. But it’s the most fair way to distribute these prints and to avoid a technical disaster which can be frustrating for everyone.

Here’s what you have to do if you want to be considered for the drawing…

  • Send an email to batman@jmaruyama.com
  • The Subject line must only say BATMAN. If there’s anything more or less in the subject line, the email will not be considered for the drawing.
  • Include your full name and shipping address so I can calculate shipping costs and provide a total should your name be selected.
  • Prints ship to U.S. addresses only. If the shipping address you provide is not within the United States, you will not be considered for the drawing.

Please make sure you follow all the steps listed above. If you don’t follow the steps mentioned above, you will NOT be entered into the drawing.

I will accept email entries until 11:59 PM PST on Friday, July 21. One entry per household. Ten (10) winners will be drawn at random and emails will be sent out at 9am PST on Saturday, July 22nd. You must be around to respond to your email at that time. You will have the option to purchase just one print. Multiple purchases will not be available.

The price of the print is $75.00 Plus Shipping.

Payment will only be accepted by PayPal – no exceptions. I will provide payment information in the email I send out to the those selected for the sale. If for any reason, a purchase falls through, I will draw an additional name.

If you have any questions, please include them in your email.

This is an officially licensed print created exclusively for Bottleneck Gallery.

Thank you for your interest and good luck!

BTAS: Eyes On Gotham

 Eyes on Gotham by Jerrod Maruyama Fine art giclée 16 x 20 inches Hand-numbered edition of 100 $40

Eyes on Gotham by Jerrod Maruyama
Fine art giclée
16 x 20 inches
Hand-numbered edition of 100
$40

I was thrilled to create this tribute to Batman The Animated series for Bottleneck Gallery. This image is officially licensed by Warner Bros. and will be available for purchase beginning Thursday, July 6th at the Bottleneck Gallery website.

As many of you know, I lost my best friend Derek Korbel in June of this year. Derek and I were both huge fans of this animated take on Batman. We would frequent Toys R Us and drug stores to find the action figures. We collected the comic books and even the trading cards. We were a bit obsessed to say the least. I had finished this print a while ago and was going to surlogoprise Derek with one upon its release. I was so excited to work on this project and equally excited to share this with him. While he was always very complimentary about my Disney work, I know he would have been very excited for this one. I’m sad he’s not around to see this.

As a tribute to the memory of my friend, I will donate a portion of my proceeds from the sale of this print to Derek’s family. It’s a small gesture but a fun one. It seems fitting to connect the release of this image with his memory.

So, if you would like to support Derek’s family or if you’re just a fan of Batman The Animated Series, I hope you will head on over to the Bottleneck Gallery website and purchase a print.
