This fantastic portrait of Darth Vader holding a Light Saber was created entirely from Jelly Belly candies! Yummy! I wonder how long it took to create. Photographed by me at the Jelly Belly exhibitor booth during the Summer Fancy Food Show 2015 at the Javits Center in Manhattan.

It is no secret that Worleygig.com is a huge fan and supporter of the Jonathan LeVine Gallery and that we try to attend and cover every show! So, it was lots of fun to find ourselves at the opening reception of The Color and The Fury group show, celebrating 10 Years of great art at Jonathan LeVine!

I’m not sure if ice cream treats were served at some point during the evening, but if they were it was after we left. In addition to an exhibit of selected works by LeVine-represented artists, one wall of the gallery is dedicated to a site-specific, shrine-like installation of memorabilia from past shows, oddball props and various likenesses of Jonathan LeVine himself created by artists like Mike Leavitt and Dan Witz — also very fun!

Speaking of Ice Cream Treats, here is a lifesize-ish cut out of Jonathan LeVine as an Ice Cream Sandwich!

The wall was full of little Tableaus like This One of Jonathan with his Fans, Friends and Supporters.

JL Shrine with Mason Jars

We enjoyed finding little reminders of shows past tucked among the many cards and mini shrines along the wall.

JL Grey Suit

I wish I could say that I remember what that Grey Suit was about, but I do not.

I wonder what is in that jar? Is it little Gummy Jonathans?

Video Clip of The Week: The Griswolds “Red Tuxedo”



This song reminds me of going to Prom if Prom had been a halfway decent memory for me. See how many pop culture icons you can spot in this lovely and whimsical video by The Griswolds for their very sweetly romantic and nostalgia inducing song, “Red Tuxedo.” Find out more about The Griswolds at their FaceBook page, found at This Link! Enjoy!

Must See Art: Michael Leavitt’s Empire Peaks

File this one under “Must See Art” because you won’t want to miss Michael Leavitt’s latest exhibit at Jonathan Levine Gallery, entitled Empire Peaks. Continuing with the theme he did to perfection with Art Army Royalty back in 2011, Leavitt’s latest collection of  what could loosely be called pop culture action figures takes a Star Wars theme and turns that wildly popular franchise’s characters into recognizable icons of history, politics and entertainment. The show is totally off the hook! Even if you’re not  a total Star Wars geek  (raises hand) you’re going to enjoy the high-quality representations of some very recognizable individuals, both real and fictional.

There’s not really much more to be said except that you’ve to go see this show! Here are some of my favorite pieces from the exhibit.

The Sucklord

The Sucklord was in attendance at the opening reception! You may know The Sucklord from his appearance on season two of Bravo’s Work of Art, or from his line of unlicensed Star Wars parody toys, marketed under the name Suckadelic. He was pretty cool to talk to.

You can tell even from these photographs that the detail is absolutely impeccable on all of these figures. Not only does each figure look exactly like its real-life counterpart, but Leavitt perfectly captures the essence of each Star Wars character in the melding of the two individual identities. High-fives all around on this one.

Michael Leavitt’s Empire Peaks will be on Exhibit Through December 21st, 2013 at Jonathan LeVine Gallery, Located at 529 West 20th Street, 9th Floor, NYC, in the Chelsea Gallery District.

Yes, It Exists: Hello Kitty Tie Fighter

From Hello Kitty Hell:

Just when you think that everything that could possibly be branded with the evil feline [already has been], something else ends up in my email box. Once again, Star Wars fans die a little inside with the Hello Kitty Tie Fighter. You just know that Star Wars would have had a different (and much more apocalyptic) ending had the Tie Fighters looked like this because there would be absolutely no way to triumph over the corresponding Darth Vader. When people talk about the “dark side,” the darkest of the dark is held without questions by the cat with no mouth.
