The 3G Show

Here are my pieces for The 3G Show. I have to say, I've done a lot of great shows at Gallery 1988, but I don't think I've ever been so excited for one of them. I'm just blown away by all the great work Autumn Society members have contributed, and that's saying something considering the caliber of work that Jensen shows there. Way to represent!

I wanted to pick a pivotal moment in each film, a scene where one of the characters makes a crucial discovery (or error).

In Ghostbusters, I always wondered what would have gone down had ghostbuster Ray Stantz (Dan Aykroyd) answered “Yes!” to Gozer’s inquiry “Are you a god?” Would he have averted Stay-Puft peril? Sadly, we will never know.

In The Goonies, I often wondered what Sloth and Chunk were doing right before they swoop in to save the rest of the Goonies from the Fratellis. Were they spying from afar? Was seeing his mother make a pre-pubescent girl walk the plank at sword-point the impetus he needed to rebel against his own flesh and blood? Or had he simply watched too many Errol Flynn movies while chained up in the basement of their hideout?

I’ve probably watched the film Gremlins at least two dozen times, but it was only upon my most recent viewing that I realized that Billy’s girlfriend Kate is probably the most successful survivor of the film. Sure, Billy racks up the highest body count, but only because he [SPOILER ALERT] blows up the town movie theater. Even Billy’s mom kills more Gremlins in hand-to-claw combat in one of the most unforgettable mother-kicking-ass scenes of all time. But the fact that Kate survives who knows how many hours behind the bar at Dorry’s Tavern with barely a scratch and discovers (without any knowledge of Mogwai and Gremlin lore) that bright light is their weakness, and uses a Polaroid camera to escape to safety, is a testament to how much of a badass she is.

Thanks guys! I can't remember the last time I spent so much time on something as this series, but I'm really happy with how they turned out. So much great stuff in this show it's awesome... and I know Jensen is really happy with what TAS has put together.

This is 16-bit. Not 8-bit. You can tell by the amount of colors used and larger size and amount of sprites that wouldn't be possible on the 8-bit systems.

Many different types of stickers are used to create sticker art. Inexpensively-purchased and free stickers such as "hello my name is" name tags or the United States Postal Service's Label 228 are often used with hand-drawn art.
