See Thirteen Pieces of Colorful Breaking Bad Fan Art

Vulture attended Saturday’s preview of the "Breaking Bad Art Project," a curated collection on display in Los Angeles’s Gallery 1988. Presented by Breaking Gifs, a site launched by comedian and Breaking Bad super-fan Paul Scheer, the exhibit (which includes a piece by Christopher Monro DeLorenzo, above) features a mix of fan art and works Scheer commissioned from sixteen artists and graphic designers depicting some of the show's most memorable scenes, characters, and moments. “I was a little late to the party vis a vis fan art,” series boss Vince Gilligan told us. “I don’t usually use the Internet much other than for porn, so I don’t ever look up Breaking Bad. To now see this wonderful, very creative, very skillfully executed artwork derived from this show we all work on? It’s mind-blowing.” Stars Bryan Cranston, Bob Odenkirk, Betsy Brandt, and RJ Mitte were also on hand to gawk and make purchases. (Proceeds go to the Alzheimer's Association in memory of Barbara Slovis, the mother of Breaking Bad cinematographer Michael Slovis.) We asked them to tell us about the pieces that struck them and why. Flip through the gallery to see what they said:
