**********************************************************************
"Shaun of the Dead", "Hot Fuzz", and now "The World's End" make up what writer/director Edgar Wright has deemed "Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy". They're three relatively different films in that their only main connection is that they're written/directed by Edgar Wright, they all star Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, and at some point, Cornetto ice cream cones are eaten in each movie. That's an excellent basis for a trilogy in my opinion.



With "The World's End" opening next week, Gallery 1988 has teamed up with Edgar Wright to celebrate his career with artwork portraying his various projects. I adore his films, and I absolutely cannot wait to see what he does with Ant-Man for Marvel in a few years. The footage he showed off at San Diego Comic Con last year was incredible, and I think there's no better director than Edgar Wright for that project.

When I started working on ideas for what I wanted to do for this show, I felt drawn to doing three pieces, based off of the trilogy. I love combining things that are clearly not for kids with things that clearly are only for children. So what better way to take these three films, and turn them into children's books!





Limited signed/numbered prints of each piece will be available at the gallery! I'll also have framed #1 prints on the wall.
(I'll provide links for online sales whenever they're available)



There will be some VERY special guests showing up to the opening, so if you can make it, please come early, as the line will no doubt be insane.

Was insanely lucky to get all 3 prints last night, but I had a quick question, where did you get those frames from? They're totally awesome!

Congratulations and thank you! I got the frames at Aaron Bros. You should be able to go in and pick them up at any location.

Wasn't able to get the world's end! Are you planning on putting it up for sale anytime soon again?

I had a few Artist Prints up for sale this morning and they went quick. Unfortunately they're no longer available. Sorry for the bad news.
