King for a Day

We've featured plenty of cool artwork from the people at Mondo lately, from their Disney gallery to a special show from artists Martin Ansin and Kevin Tong. Now it's Hero Complex who has put together an awesome artwork collection in Los Angeles called King for a Day. And if you can't discern what the show might be honoring from the teaser image above, it features nothing but artwork paying tribute to the work of Stephen King. And since the author has seen many of his books turned into feature films like The Shawshank Redemption and The Shining, there's plenty of great stuff that cinephiles will love. Look!

And that's just a small sample of the pieces from King for a Day at the Hero Complex Gallery (via SlashFilm). Plus, the show also includes artwork paying tribute to his books and the TV shows that have adapted them as well. This is just s small sampling of the pieces in the show, so if you want to see the whole gallery, you'll have to hit up 2020 South Robertson Blvd., Studio D in Los Angeles. The gallery opens up at 7pm local time tonight and will be on display through April 6th. That's where you'll be able to buy pieces in the show, and whatever isn't sold there will be on sale online on March 22nd at

The 1st and 3rd are great. Honorable mention to the Misery foot... The rest are almost terrible.
