Extremely Limited "Guilty Smurf" Giclee
"Guilty Smurf" Giclee Print
Limited Edition of 26
What’s cute, blue, as tall as 3 apples, and has an extremeley checkered past?
YES! Of COURSE I’m talking about Guilty Smurf!
One of the most secretive and mysterious of all of the Smurfs, Guilty Smurf kept to himself the entire time all of the other Smurfs were basking in the glory of the limelight from the Saturday morning cartoon show and the popular toys. In fact, there wasn’t a single MENTION of Guilty Smurf in all of Smurf-lore until after the…incident.
Envy had built up inside Guilty’s soul as he sat in the darkest mushroom apartment, silently pining for the attention and fame that the other Smurfs were getting. But he was too prideful and stubborn to join the party after they were famous.
So instead…he sat. And HATED.
After 6 seasons of cartoons, he couldn’t take their arrogance any longer.
In one smurfy afternoon, Guilty emerged from his mushroom abode and bare-handedly slaughtered all 24 of those famous tiny blue fame-whores.
And then, he did something the others could never do.
He murdered Gargamel and his pet cat Azrael, too.
With blood drenching his blue hands, Guilty Smurf returned to the now-quiet (and cancelled) Smurf village and slept quietly and happily forever.
ZeroFriends is celebrating the 20th anniversary of Guilty Smurf’s massacre with an extremely limited Giclee print featuring the only known portrait of Guilty Smurf, painted by Me for the recent “Gag Me With A Toon” show @ Melt Gallery.
There are only 26 prints. One print for each Smurf that Guilty slaughtered.
Each print is hand signed by Me, numbered, and is dedicated to the loss of one of the fallen Smurf brethren.
Printed with archival inks on Velvet Rag Fine Art Paper.
The Numbered Prints and the corresponding Smurf/Victim that are available are as follows. PLEASE NO REQUESTS FOR A SPECIFIC SMURF / NUMBER. YOU WILL RECEIVE THE PRINT IN THE ORDER THAT WE RECEIVE THE PURCHASES. LIMIT ONE PER CUSTOMER. THANK YOU.
