Support The Portland Mercury

This past weekend in Los Angeles, artist Brandon Bird—whose excellent work graced a Mercury cover a few years ago—co-curated a Jurassic Park-themed art show... except without any dinosaurs. The JP Show (Just People) was "dedicated to what people love & remember most about the Jurassic Park film series: the human characters."

I want every single one of these pieces on every single one of my walls, but my favorites are John Larriva's Ian Malcolm: From Chaos (above), John Olsen's PARKKRAP (LEX), and Tyler Jacobs' Nagelsattler. Oh, and the Julianne Moore one, my deep appreciation of which totally does not have anything whatsoever to do with my eternal, undying love for Julianne Moore, nor my eternal, undying love for her character in The Lost World: Jurassic Park, the brilliant and determined Dr. Sarah Harding.
