Gilbert Hernandez Goes Bananas for APE!

Gilbert Hernandez for APE 2012

We just had to share this adorable poster that Gilbert Hernandez designed for APE: the Alternative Press Expo, going down this coming weekend, Saturday, October 13th and Sunday, October 14th at the Concourse Exhibition Center in San Francisco, CA! I have to confess, I didn't even recognize the poster as Gilbert's artwork at first… I mean, the ape's boobs aren't nearly big enough! (I kid, I kid!)

Marketing Mix Master Mike Baehr took this shot of the original art — whatta perfect primate!
