Free PR: ‘Breaking Bad’ Fan Art

We’ve heard about the power of digital fanfiction to elevate popular literary brands like Harry Potter, Twilight and 50 Shades of Grey. But what about fan art based 0n movies and shows?

AMC’s cult hit “Breaking Bad” has inspired its own ongoing art project called Breaking Gifs—and this week, the Los Angeles-based Gallery 1988 will feature a series of posters and other works by painters, print-makers and graphic designers who chose to pay visual homage to their favorite show. Check out some images here, here and here.

While the exhibit’s organizers did not appear to work with AMC in any official capacity, their event obviously provides a nice organic PR boost for the show, the gallery and all the artists involved. Members of the cast and crew–including show runner Vince Gilligan–even stopped by the exhibit on opening night to say hello—and why not? Everybody loves a little free PR.

P.S. Did we mention that we really love this show?
