June 11th, 1986 saw the premiere of “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,” a classic John Hughes comedy. 30 years later it remains a classic love note to the city of Chicago and expertly defines “carpe diem” with humor and insight.
My tribute to the film with quotes, icons and a portrait of Ferris is available HERE.

Celebrating a true sequel success, James Cameron’s “Aliens” was a white knuckled thrill ride when it was released in 1986 and still holds up years later. The film is full of catch phrases (thanks mostly to Bill Paxton’s character) on top of the terrifying action. My tribute print combines some of the better known quotes and phrases, mixed in with notable icons and a portrait of Ellen Ripley.
