We’ve featured art by illustrator Kiersten Essenpreis here many times, specifically her funny, pop culture works from numerous Gallery 1988 art shows. We also appreciate her for creating the best Halloween costume based on 1988’s They Live. Now Kiersten Essenpreis is showing a series at Gallery 1988 East in which she illustrates what her favorite movie and TV characters are doing on their days off.

Check out some of our favorites below to find out what actually happened to the cat in Alien and to see who’s been carving all of those bear sculptures into tree stumps. The rest of the works are available at Essenpreis’ website. Originals and prints may still be for sale at Gallery 1988 (until May 25th) or at her Etsy store.
