The Battle of Wits – Crazy 4 Cult NYAugust 1, 2012
One of my favorite annual shows to participate in is Gallery 1988‘s Crazy 4 Cult, an exhibition of over 100 artists paying tribute to their favorite pop culture films. I’m super excited this year because they’re branching out to the east coast and holding it in New York City!
For this year I chose to illustrate one of my favorite movies of all time, The Princess Bride. One of the best scenes in the film is when Wesley confronts Vizzini after besting his “Spaniard” and his “giant”. He agrees to a “battle of wits”, and what follows in one of the most hilariously long-winded speeches in cinematic villainy.
