Inappropriate Golden Books: THE BOOK! (UPDATE!)



I've been having a lot of questions/inquiries about my golden book drawings recently, and I'm excited to say. YES! After 2 years of making them for fun, I finally compiled them, along with a couple new ones, into one place called a book. It's being printed as you read this in a magical land called "Hong Kong".
The book, "Movies R Fun" (part of the Lil' Inappropriate Book line) will be available at Comic-Con this year, hopefully APE in November, and here on my blog, alongside the 54 Intercontinental Cuties playing cards.
High quality, "classy" prints from the Inappropriate Golden Book will be available as well. Perfect for framing and placing into any child's nursery.





SPELLING UPDATE!

Thank you for all the coments about the accidental apostrophe that exists on my Silence of the Lambs drawing, and will exist in the book. I am ashamed. I come frum a long line of spellers. My grate, grate granfdather was the national spelling advisor to the Presedent of the United States, and his father before him wrote a little book you may have herd of called 'Webster's Dictionary", and his father before him invented the letter "K". So this horrible, unexcusable act has caused a unfixabull rift between me and my family, and needless to say, I've been ostrichsized. By law, I now have to go through town, whereing a rag of scarlet cloth in the shape of an apostrophe for all to see and judge me by. But I don't think this is write. How can one tiny, little, insignificant mark between a "t" and a"s" be that big a deel, when cats across the internet are writing 'i can has cheesburger' all the time? And 'all your base are belong to us'? And 'you've been P'WNED!!!!1' ? That last one has a NUMBER in the word! How is that OK? I die-gress. And appologize for the speling sin eye comited. Pleez knoo it whill haunnt mi sole fourever.
Tank ewe,

I want that "Leon the Professional" one so bad... Any chance you'll be selling the high-quality single prints online? I don't think I'll be making it to Comic-Con this year... Pleeeeaaaase!

Bill Robinson said...

YAYYYYYYYYYY

Josh Cooley said...

Yes, prints and the book will be available online.

Octavio E. Rodriguez said...

Hilarious! Great blog, I'll be visiting again!

The iPadist said...

Please, pretty please, rush this to market :)

Jonas said...

Good thing I already subscribed to this blog, because I sure would hate missing out on this one.

lope... said...

Is there anywhere we can get prints of your work? Love to get the Goodfellas piece for my brother's birthday this month. That 'Shinebox' quote is our favorite movie quote.

SHOo said...

That's got to be the best news of the day! THANK YOU!

Paul said...

Ok, you have another guaranteed sale as long as you ship internationally. :)

Chris Battle said...

AWESOME!

It reminds me of Mad Magazine's children's books in their November 1958 issue, complete with sample pages. They had The Wayward Schoolbus, I Fled Three Mice, The Man in the Red Flannel Union Suit, I'll Whinny Tomorrow and the amazing Marjorie Morningkitten - "Goodness knows, she was housebroken."

I love everything about these! Except for the punctuation mistake on the Silence of the Lambs. Should be its not it's.

Craig said...

I'm SO buying this for my daughter!!! I hope she'll want to be a cleaner when she grows up.

Pelkor said...

Better be careful with the big lebowski. The people that made a shakespearian parody stage play of TBL got lawyered.

"Its" skin, not "it's".

It's = it is/has
Its = everything else

Other than that, GREAT WORK!

Yep. I think I love you. These are awesome.

Tyler Garn said...

I really love these. Do you take requests? I'm thinking maybe "Requiem For A Dream"? Who's with me?!

Anonymous said...

You should so do 'The Godfather' and 'Fight Club'. That would be some awesome shit.

QueenCityDiva said...

This is crazy. I didn't know anything about Cooley. I really enjoyed the sample, and look forward to the finished product. You've earned yourself a new fan, Cooley!

Lara said...

JOSH!!! UH-OH, you have a typo on the page from "Silence of the Lambs" that is : it's should be its!
Hope there is some one who reads this and can get the message to you and your editors before it's (used correctly here) published!

When is this out it looks great! I was talking with Anthony the other day and I forgot to get your contact info. If you want to shoot it to me you can reach me at Sean@kombo.com Been rewatching your Up short. I am working on an animatic and would love to chat with you about how you went about putting it together if you get some time. Saw TS3 the other day btw. FANTASTIC!

Loop me in on when the book and cards hit

I LOVE the T2 one!! You should also make a sad moments in movies book. The thumbs up at the end of T2 should definitely make the cut. That part always makes me cry.

Mr. Popular said...

Your work is super-awesome.

Dara said...

Very snazzy. Nice work.

Rob said...

hope the Golden books haven't gone to the printer yet, cause there's a typo: should be "It rubs the lotion on ITS skin" -- no apostrophe -- the way you've written it now, as "it's", translates to "it rubs the lotion on it is skin" which doesn't make sense.

keith said...

This is pure genius!

Chris said...

Will it be available in the UK?

Anonymous said...

this is wonderful. can't wait to see it in print. do you mind, though, if i gently point out there is no apostrophe in "its" in the silence of the lambs page. should be "it rubs the lotion on its skin..."

thanks for this. i'm a huge pixar fan.

This kicks ass. Please give us "Scarface"

Tim007 said...

These look amazing. Reminds me of a series of books a company called Dorothy in England are doing. http://whitewriting.com/blog/book-early/
Apparently they're doing versions of The Wicker Man, The Honeymoon Killers, Deliverance amongst others....

Osco said...

these are great, 'll definitely pick up a copy or two at APE

Angeliki said...

These are so amazing I wanna cry!

Aaron N. said...

I'm Jenette Goldstein's husband (she played the T-1000 in that scene from T2). She screamed when I showed her this. It's the best cartoon of her that we've seen. Its considerably better than Jack Davis' version of Vasquez in the MAD parody of ALIENS, and I say that as a big fan of Davis. We'll be looking for the product!

Josh Cooley said...

Aaron,
please email me at cooley@cooleycooley.com

thanks

Rick Cortes said...

Hope prints of many of these become available. I'll be a purchasin' fool if they are.

Looking forward to the book!

Hi Josh,

These illustrations are fantastic! Would know when the prints will be available for purchase?

thanks,
new fan

Kilco said...

Hi Josh, really enjoying your work! Just wondering if you're any relative of any Cooley's or Kilcooley's from Galway, Ireland?

Andy said...

Thanks for doing these... they are just so cool. It makes me glad to be a movie geek.

Dhppy said...

Do you have a twitter account? I'll need some sort of update when the book and prints are available, or I'll surely forget.

Anonymous said...

excellent work!
congrats from zurich--

M. S. Corley said...

Faaaaaantastic!
What photoshop brush did you use to do these?

keika said...

Congrats Josh!

Josh said...

I love the Terminator wash day print and have my finger on the 'buy' trigger. But I have to know, is the silver background to this really Alien facehuggers and eggs???

Josh Cooley said...

Nice catch Josh!

Just so you know, it was only a mistake on the store picture. The Terminator print has a Terminator background.

Thanks for catching that. Since you have a keen eye for finding the faults in others, and we both have the same name... I am certain you are ME from THE FUTURE.

Just tell me this...are we still very attractive?

Max the drunken severed head said...

This stuff is genius. So damn funny! Your talent is impressive!

Grew up with Golden Books, and you captured their style perfectly.

Jennifer said...

How can I buy one of these books?! A friend showed it to me and I love it! I want to buy one. When will it be available?!

Jennifer said...

I really want to buy one of these books!!!! When will it be available?

Jennifer said...

I really want to buy one of these books! When will it be available online? Please, I really want to know!

Anonymous said...

I will totally be looking to buy a copy of the book. Question though, and forgive my ignorance if I'm wrong about this - but doesn't Larry David only use "Prit-tay" good in his TV show Curb Your Enthusiasm?

Anonymous said...

Great work sir! How about doing that scene from Pulp Fiction where Bruce Willis and Ving Rhames are tied up with ball gags in their mouths while Zed is going, "eenie, meenie, .."

wombat888 said...

Hi,

I am just curious, are your illustrations Acrylic or Conte drawings?

Thanks,

Peter
