Big high fives to Daryl Dyer who had said “holy moly” as a response to some message some time ago, which stuck in my head and became “Holy Molly”, which became this painting. Original painting here: http://www.jason.gallery/product/holy-molly

Five high school students, all different stereotypes, meet in detention, where they all eat their brains out. Claire is a zombie princess, Andrew a zombie athlete, John a zombie criminal, Brian a zombie brain, and Allison a zombie basket case.

Jay & Silent Bob found out, in Dogma, to their dismay, that the Chicago suburb-town of Shermer, Illinois, was actually an entirely fictional place, dreamed up by the master of the 80s teen comedy/drama - John Hughes. Many of the films he wrote or directed were set in the same fictitious universe. In a 1999 interview he revealed the scale of this "Shermer-verse". 15 years worth of notebooks detailed how Ferris Bueller (FB's Day Off) was friends with Sam Baker (16 Candles), John Bender (The Breakfast Club) lived three doors down from Del Griffiths (Planes, Trains & Automobiles) and so on. What a shame his untimely death meant we did not get to see this 'verse expanded upon. The bulldog mascot was briefly mention in Ferris Bueller's Day Off and the names at the bottom of the shirt are all Shermer High School alumni from the films: Home Alone, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Pretty In Pink, The Breakfast Club, Uncle Buck, Some Kind Of Wonderful, Sixteen Candles & Weird Science

The Daily Show with Jon Stewart is the only news broadcast that has allowed me to listen in hope, rather than despair, at the state of the world. For this reason I wanted to commemorate Mr. Stewart’s 16 years of dedication to truth, and laughter. I wish him all the best on his well-earned time away from the show. He will be greatly missed. #InJonWeTrust
