My long-standing adoration of comedic actor Bill Murray is probably no secret [see my earlier entry/photo: “Peter Venkman, Ph.D. — Busted” ]. So you can imagine how enthralled I am by the new exhibit of Bill Murray-inspired artwork at Gallery1988 in California, called “Please Post Bills — An Art Tribute to a Comic Legend.” Nearly all of Murray’s major film characters are represented and I was pleased to see that some were not overlooked amidst all the Ghostbusters and Steve Zissou images (especially “Big Ern McKracken” from Kingpin). I was impressed by the numerous horror interpretations, especially the zombie versions of Bill from Zombieland (by Rhys Cooper, sampled above) and the zombie rendition of groundskeeper Carl from Caddieshack and others. Go check out the complete exhibit online — several prints and artpieces are available for purchase!
