I’ve been ridiculously excited about this ever since I was invited to participate months ago..  Opening on January 8th, Gallery 1988 LA presents their 4th annual tribute show, this time honoring He-Man and the Masters of the Universe!!

Being a super-ultra-mega fan from 1983-85, followed by a brief few months in ’86, where I thought I might actually be She-Ra, you can imagine the fun I had painting these.

This is how I envision He-Man and Skeletor spending their days off;  trimming the bowl cut and getting a root canal.. a very evil one.

*UPDATE* I ‘ve received a few emails regarding these pieces (thank you!)..  Both pieces have SOLD, but prints are being made by Gallery 1988, hopefully to be out sometime in April.  If you have any questions, please contact me at kiersten@youfail.com.

    These are super rad. A bet Skeletor is a nice guy when he is not being evil.

    These two are amazing!
    Since the originals have been sold to a speedier Mr or Miss Moneybags, I was wondering if there were prints available?

    Amazing work! Both definitely stood out from the rest of the collection. As others have asked, are there prints available?

    Regards.

    I just posted “Skeletor Gets a Root Canal” on Evolve Happy. It’s such a wonderfully hilarious dose of nostalgia.
