I worked with the Academy and Gallery 1988 to create the official 85 Years of Oscars poster. 

Click here to see it in detail!

The brief was one of the hardest I’ve ever had; find a way to reference every single Best Picture winner from the last 85 years. 

Thanks to Gallery 1988 for putting my name forward and organising this whole shebang.  


“A Cast of Currys” - http://www.facebook.com/toddspenceart

Legendary charactor actor Tim Curry really needed a tribute homaging his most favorited roles.  The lineup includes charactors from his various TV and films: IT, Fern Gully, Home Alone 2, Rocky Horror Picture Show, Clue, Tales from the Crypt, Annie, Legend and a slight nod to Muppets Treasure Island (I’m not the greatest fan but felt the need) as Darkness wears an “I Heart M.T.I.” button.

Painted as if they are doing a photo shoot together, this painting measures 15”x18”, acrylic on illustration board.

From the back of every comic I ever read…


Is beefcake cinema back in action?
This summer, we’re seeing a resurgence of the meat-head with the gang in The Expendables 2, Bane in The Dark Knight Rises, Captain America and Thor in The Avengers. But are they here to stay? (Illustration by Steve Murray)


Friday Project: Film Alphabets..HUH.. what are they good for… absolutely nothing

OK, the Muppet Tournament was a lot of fun, but this is awesome! Sam the Eagle as Don Draper? Statler as Magneto? Dr. Bunsen Honeydew as Walter White? PERFECTION!


The Muppets are back on the big screen!
But what have they been doing for the last 12 years? Steve Murray takes a look at some of their failed casting attempts. Also! Chris Knight gives their new outing FOUR STARS! Also! Gonzo wins our Tournament of Muppets! Man, it’s a good day to be a Muppet.

The Swede better make it to the final! #TeamChef


Tournament of Muppets, Day 4
We’ve nearly made it to the final four contenders in our Tournament of Muppets, but to get there, we have to see how the showdowns between Fozzie and Beaker & Dr. Bunsen Honeydew and Rizzo and Kermit play out. Who will win? Will a dark horse be a contender for the final 2?

You can keep up with the Tournament of Muppets discussion (which thusfar has been heated) on Twitter by using the hashtag #muppetbattle, and be sure to let us know your thoughts by mentioning us @nparts! And be sure to visit us tomorrow when we announce the final 2 contenders — not only can you cast your vote to determine the winner, but at 1 p.m., we’ll be hosting a live chat to discuss and wrap up the Tournament. See you there!
