Beastie Boys/ Under the Influence

I'm super excited to be part of this group show. For the month of January, Gallery 1988, is putting on a Beastie Boy themed group show. The show opens tomorrow night and it looks like it will be a blast.

It was hard to settle on an image with so many great songs and references to pull from. I finally decided on doing the old school Beasties from License to Ill days, getting arrested by the Beastie cops from the Sabatoge video. There are a few song references snuk in there, but they're probably hard to make out from the scan.
Acrylics on panel- 24"x 24".

Anyway, still scrambling to wrap things up here in the studio so I can get down to the show. Click here to go to 1988's blog where they've been posting some of the art from the show.



Anyway, hope to see some of you there. Just look for the guy with the Juan Epstein like hair-do.

Peace.

Thanks for the comments guys. Yeah, I wish all of you could have gone to the show. It's times like this I wish we had Star Trek transporters.
