I received pictures from long-time supporter of ChetArt foolishness, Dan over in the U.K. He has just put together framed displays of the various card sets he has purchased, ready for display in his home. Thank you Dan, for the great honor you’ve given my work and for sharing the beautiful results!

The TV series “Firefly” and the subsequent theatrical release “Serenity” by the brilliant Joss Whedon introduced a fresh sense of humor, action and unique moments of pure creativity to a devoted fan base. As with all the best shows, when it ended it felt like saying goodbye to close friends for the last time. This tribute combines memorable quotes from both the movie and series. Find this and the following pieces available in the ChetArt online shop.
Joining the previous Coen brothers series tribute comes “O Brother Where Art Thou?,” a comedic treatment of Homer’s Odyssey set in Mississippi in 1937. On top of the acting and storyline, the lush cinematography and collection of folk songs have found a special place in my brain and heart.
When I picked up William Goldman’s novel “Princess Bride” back in the 70′s, I quickly realized I had discovered something special when I came to the first “commentary” in red ink. That same sense of fun hit me years later when Rob Reiner brought the twisted, tongue-in-cheek fairy tale to the big screen. This collection of quotes pays tribute to both the book and film for creating moments of perfect humor.
(please note: The Princess Bride print is temporarily unavailable.)
Sheldon Cooper, played expertly by Jim Parsons on the TV series “Big Bang Theory” is the quintessential nerd. Despite his chronic need to point out the mental shortcomings of those around him, he always finds a way to make you like him. This portrait pays tribute with a variety of quotes by and about him.

I’m proud to be a part of the upcoming “Tentacles!” art show at Ltd. Gallery in Seattle. Curated by Bonnie Burton, the show will be chock full of a variety of tentacle related art inspired by pop culture, literature, nature and comic books by 40 artists. The three ChetArt entries illustrate moments from a series, with a nod to Norman Saunders, that pits Martians against the dreaded Cthulhu creature. The show opens May 4th.
