These Are Their Stories


One of my favorite painters of all time, Brandon Bird has put together a super fun Law and Order themed gallery. From Bird’s site:

“For twenty years, the heroes of “Law & Order” have navigated literally hundreds grotesque tragedies, moral quandries, and improbable crimes.

Each piece is an artist’s interpretation of a one-line episode summary from the DirecTV program guide. Like the series that inspired them, they are sometimes straight forward and sometimes offer a twist; sometimes they contain no easy answers, and sometimes they are just plain goofy.

“These are Their Stories” will run July 24 to July 30, 2010 at Gallery Meltdown, 7522 W. Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90046.

Cake, ice cream, and snacks will be served all day opening day and at a special reception the night of the 28th (8:00 to 10:00 pm).

Not only did I create a piece for the show, there are lots of other people involved who you probably like! Kate Beaton! Scott C.! Michael Kupperman! David Malki!! Chip Zdarsky! Carly Monardo! (Her painting is amazing, and my favorite, and I’m not just saying that because we’re getting married.) I wish I was anywhere near L.A. so that I could go, but I’m not, so I urge you to attend in my stead.
