A Tribute to Judd Apatow

Here's my piece for Gallery 1988's Tribute to Judd Apatow that opens next week with a reception hosted by Judd himself.

I decided to base this piece on the cult animated series The Critic, for which Judd was a producer before he hit it big with his own films. I went back and watched the whole series while working on this design and I forgot how fantastic it was. I mean I remember it being good, but it's downright hilarious. It's interesting that it got tossed from network to network and then cancelled after only two seasons, while nowadays network animated shows not even half as funny get renewed year after year.

I thought I would mix it up a bit and make this piece a papercraft toy, since they are a ton of to design but I don't get the chance to make new ones very often. If you build this particular toy you will have a little Jay Sherman to act as your very own personal critic! I think this is the first time I've designed a Papercraft with "moving" parts.

This morning I was very excited to see this print featured as part of /Film's preview of the show!

"It stinks." Hahaha... I loved this show back when I first saw it on Comedy Central. Never realized it was an Apatow production, though. Actually explains a lot.
