I've Just Had An Apostrophe

Hook is my favorite (non-Star Wars) movie, as has already been documented. That being said, when Joe from the Bottleneck Gallery asked me to participate in their next group show, I Love You Man, an ode to bromance, I thought of Hook and Smee right away.

I just adore every frame of this movie and this scene between Hook and Smee is a standout favorite. There's a great rapport between veteran actors Dustin Hoffman and Bob Hoskins and they are clearly having fun with their characters. From Hook's childish narcissism to Smee's idiot savant idea, they're an oddly perfect match for one another.


So to show their bromance, I picked the specific moment where Smee is using his earwax to tweak Hook's mustache. Such a moment could only happen between true brosephs.

The show is running at the Bottleneck Gallery at 60 Broadway, Brooklyn, NY 11249 from Friday May 10th until the 26th.  Given the quality of their past shows, I Love You Man should be filled with great work by some ridiculously talented artists. A portion of the proceeds from the show will be donated to the World Wildlife Fund. Sales online for work from the show begin at noon on Saturday May 11th at

The piece is available as a 10x18" limited edition giclee print through the Bottleneck Gallery at Printed 300 gsm fine art rag.
