In what will no doubt be one of the most surprising debuts of the year, Justin has created almost 30 new pieces, creating fake animation cels for Saturday Morning Cartoons that should NEVER happen.

Each one is smarter and wittier than the next, and this exhibit is sure to garner some serious attention. The exhibit will open this Friday, November 16, from 7-10 PM at Gallery1988 (Melrose), with the artist in attendance. In addition to the original cels, he has also created 2 screenprints and some giclee prints of the imagery.
