POPEYE PREMIERE PHOTOS FROM SEPTEMBER 5TH, 2014

Can’t believe it has already been a week since the premiere of the Popeye Art Show, “Strong to the Finich!” It has been a dream come true to curate and organize this art show. Below are some pictures of the show’s premiere and festivities…

Popeye poster (by Chogrin) & Stand-up (provided by King Features) greeted guests into the gallery. I always envisioned the show with a nautical theme (anchors, ship-wheels, fishing nets, life preservers, etc.)

Frank Caruso, myself (Chogrin), and Bob Cavin III discussing the art on the wall.

Awesome tattoo artist, Johnny Vampotna (johnnyvampotna.wordpress.com), was present to lay ink on any guest that wanted an anchor on them. Towards the end of the night almost 20 people walked away with a permanent anchor on them.

Freshly tattooed and posing with their Popeye Energy Drinks are artists: Eric Esquivel & Hannah Nance Partlow

Many Popeye fans like cartoonist, Michael Aushenker, were there to show their excitement and appreciation for the 85 year old sailor.

More pictures and information soon!
