Last night “Lost In Space” opened at Grumpy Bert!! Thanks so much to everyone who came out and a special thanks to Albert for inviting me to be part of the show!! If you weren’t able to make it, you can still see all the work at 82 Bond St. in Brooklyn until June 21st. Here are the three pieces I made, from top to bottom:

She Decided To Be With A Bad Boy For Once, 8x10 in.

Remember to Keep the Ship Tidy, 20x16 in.

Astronaut v. Alien, 5x7 in.

Your eyes are not deceiving you. This awesome building really does look just like the USS Enterprise, and that’s no coincidence. Located in China, this one-of-a-kind building is the headquarters of NetDragon Websoft. Company Chairman Liu DeJian is a tremendous fan of Star Trek and actually licensed the rights from CBS in order to build a replica of the iconic starship.

This video provides a much closer look:

Starting in 2008, construction of this fantastic building took over 6 years and cost 160 million dollars. As you’d hope, the building features automatic sliding doors between offices. It also has 30-foot metal slides for instant ground floor access from up on the third floor as well as a life-size replica of a Tyrannosaurus rex named Stan who was discovered in South Dakota in 1987. It’s the one and only officially licensed Star Trek building on Earth and we want to go to there.
