Los Angeles-based Dave Quiggle and Seattle’s Barry Blankenship have both contributed to several events at the pop culture-obsessed Gallery1988, so when our friends at the gallery asked them to do a collaborative show, the print artists proved a good match. As their shared theme, they asked themselves a question many an artist has pondered: what inspires me to create? And thus, we have “Objects of Their Affection,” which is running through May 12; if you can’t make it out to L.A. in time, we’ve picked a few of our favorite pieces.

Barry Blankenship: “Relics Of Time”

Barry Blankenship: “Extra Terrestrial Stuff”

Barry Blankenship: “Firehouse AKA The Best Toy Ever”

Barry Blankenship: “Tape of the Galaxy”

Barry Blankenship: “Starfighter Fields Fover (Blue)”

Dave Quiggle: “Laura (Red Heart Variant)”

Dave Quiggle: “Jareth (Red Heart Variant)”
