If you’re over the age of 25 and reading this article (or just about anything on this site), there’s an overwhelmingly good chance that you spent most of your time watching cartoons and movies, reading comics, and all other delightful forms of entertainment.
Our good friends over at the Mondo Gallery have decided to pay tribute to these classic moments from our collective childhood with their newest gallery show, Saturday Morning Mashup: The Art of Jeroen Huijbregts, featuring iconic illustrations, paintings, and drawings from artist Jeroen Huijbregts, inspired by the illustrator and graphic designer’s love of comic books, cartoons, and movies from the ‘70s and ‘80s.
We first came across Jeroen’s work online and were instantly intrigued and blown away by it. It’s extremely exciting to see a wide variety of characters mashed up so effortlessly, adding a new identity to these beloved icons so ingrained in our imaginations. We can’t wait to see the full show come together.

Hailing from the Netherlands, Huijbregts is often recognized and respected for his unique skill and the thought process he puts into each piece.
I try to blend iconic popular culture imagery to create an image that’s recognizable, but also something that’s new and unique. I’m stoked to share the new pieces and ideas I’ve been working for this show.
– Jeroen Huijbregts
The gallery show is kicking off with a reception open to the public on Friday, April 22, 2016 from 7pm to 10pm with Huijbregts in attendance, and will be open Tuesday through Saturday from 12pm to 6pm until Saturday, May 7, 2016. Our Nerdlocker crew attended tonight’s opening of the show to check out all the goodness available.
Take a look at some of the photos from the opening of the show:
