I know You Are But What Am I?

Here's my one contribution to the Crazy 4 Cult Show at Gallery 1988:

"I know you are but what am I?"
Acrylic on Illustration Board

I picked one of my all-time favorite movies, Pee Wee's Big Adventure. I knew that someone was going to do a piece about Pee Wee's "troubles" with the law. I never really agreed with the rep that Paul Reubens got after all that, so I decided to do a straight homage to the movie.

But, I love Francis (Mark Holton). I think he is the unsung hero of Pee Wee's Big Adventure. He was just a spoiled rich kid who was so dumb that it never occured to him to hire someone to make a Pee Wee bike for himself. I guess nothing can be as good as the original...

Don't forget that Phil Hartman had a cameo in the movie, but more impotantly wrote it with Paul Reubens.
Maybe next year I'll do a Big Lebowski piece...

Gabe, this is fantastic! Really great designs and paint. This is definitely one of the stand-outs from the show (even though I only saw the show online). So tubular!

We loved that piece you did. We saw it from across the room and said Gabe did that one!

That was a favorite movie of my brother and I when we younger.

Sorry I missed you at the Crazy4Cult show. I hope to see you at the Comic-Con on Friday. :)

"Au revoir, Pee Wee. Au revoir"

What a great homage to the movie! I love this. And I totally agree, Francis was the PERFECT foil for Pee Wee!! I love the scene where they fight in the huge bathtub, and I dig how you drew their faces!

Dude, that made me laugh out loud and spit my coffee all over the screen - nice work! FRAN-CISSS! This rocks and can tell you had a lot of fun with it! I think I may need to find or make myself an 'FB' shirt like the one Mr. Buxton adorns himself in. That umm, jumpsuit outfit isn't too shabby either!

just an aside...

i always loved the matching embroidered jumpsuits francis and his dad wore. that's how i envision rich people dressing about the house to this day.

wasn't mark holton also in teen wolf? that could be a fun piece too!
