Thankfully not only selling to cursed princes who drink tea out of Angela Lansbury, The Beast Shoppe is an e-art shiller stacked with '80s pop culture prints designed by a Sacramento-born Vincent van Bro, who, when he's out of ideas on what to draw, is likely
all some ears.
Wall-transform(er)ing hangables cover all manner of awesome, including:
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: These action figure-based 'sterpieces pay homage to villains like Triceraton, Leatherhead, and frustratingly difficult Turtles in Time bosses Rocksteady 'n Bebop, plus there're also mini prints of Raphael, Michelangelo, Leonardo, and Donatello, who does machines. So fit your blender with a chastity belt.
Ghostbusters: TBS also tackles the proton-packing dudes in janitor jumpsuits w/ a wide print of a little kid confronting ghosts like Slimer, or individual portraits of not-at-all-ridiculously-named Peter Venkman, Egon Spengler, Raymond Stantz, and Winston Zeddemore -- who gozer-fearing customers should hang over the toilet.
Star Wars: The OG triology gets the three-epic-movie-posters treatment with every important character cartoonified and crowding around their respective episode titles, along with beloved quotes such as “You’re our only hope”, “It’s a trap”, and “I am your father”, plus iconic scenes like Yoda swamp-training Luke, or the Teddy Ruxpin Picnic on Endor.
And it doesn’t stop there: TBS has other randomly awesome works like a Mechagodzilla, hipster monsters, and a Yeti and a Dragon having tea... damn Angela Lansbury gets around.
