Check This Out: More Great Bill Murray Tribute Art from Gallery 1988
Just last week we featured some select pieces from the forthcoming tribute art show at Gallery 1988 titled Please Post Bills, which honors the wholly praiseworthy work of Bill Murray. Now this week some more pieces have surfaced diving into films featuring Murray in The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou and even a rendering of what Garfield might look like with the actor's famous face. In addition, there's a great sort of infographic about all the wild antics Phil Connors gets himself into throughout Groundhog Day, another retro take on Dr. Peter Venkman from Ghostbusters, and more. Check out the pieces below!
Here are more pieces from Gallery 1988's Please Post Bills show (click for larger versions via SlashFilm):
The art show will have its grand opening at Gallery 1988 on Thursday November 3rd, 2011, and will run through November 26th. The above work is just a taste of some of the fine work that will be in display. Personally, I hope someone pays tribute to Murray's role in Kingpin and perhaps his cameo in Zombieland. You can see more work from the gallery courtesy of SlashFilm who compiled some of the pieces of work that have shown up online. Stay tuned as we may post more from the show again soon.
Why do Garfield? Even he regrets it 🙂

Think I'll play devil's advocate for a moment. If you like Star Trek, call me Q. Either way, the role's the same. I love mmmmeeeeeeee! Let's say I'm a big time movie star. I am the world, baby. Let's say I've lived let's say, not quite so wisely and well, it bit me in the butt. I'm dying, because of the way I lived my life. Let's say that before my beaufiful face is ravaged by the oppresive apsect which plagues my self-serving existance, I simply must hide this from the public. That accountability thing is so unseemly, those tabloids are so pesky, the truth is so ugly and if anybody knew yeah it might change their direction, but I don't care about them. I love mmmmmeeee! Anyway, telling people I am not perfect could be embarrasing (if not blasphemy). Afterall, I am my own best friend. Let's say I scoped out and found a quaint little apartment on a second-story and must devise a way to drive (can't say lie, that word is so unattractive) the news on the web about me, so I meet with social media professionals, friends, family (preapproved, of course. Birds of a feather do flock together) to map and plan diversions to trick people into believing I'm still my vibrant, beautiful, and can-do-no-wrong self. We plan false news releases. That'll get 'em! How about stuff I'm not going to do, events I know full well I won't be there to attend and the whole time, I can laugh myself silly at BS'ing all of those people who "think they know what love is" because they say they love me. Here's the finger to you, suckers! They'll be going round on Rondo to try and figure out what happened when they finally hear the news. I'm so smart! All of those fake tweets are a big help, too! To all those who say you love me: You are not preapproved in my perfectly planned, and sculpted world. I know it might hurt when I'm gone, but don't worry, you'll get over it and if you don't, I don't care. Afterall, I love mmmmmmeeeeeeeee! I must be a genius! If this is your train of thought, Bill Murray, then you should know you are not a genious. Dead or alive, you’d be a liar and Sadly, if that is the case, then I've gotcha.
