E.T. has a lot of friends, especially among fictional characters from other pop culture franchises. He really likes to hang out and race cars with the dudes from Dukes of Hazzard, as you can see in this great painting from Scott C. He also shoots the breeze with the dudes from Star Trek, does Speak n Spell with Batman, and pals around with a whole bunch of other pop icons. It's true that I hate E.T., but I love Scott C.'s cartoony renditions of the ugly little alien in a series of paintings that will be on display in Los Angeles at Gallery 1988 starting tonight. He also has the whole series up on in his blog for your viewing pleasure. [The E.T. Collection via Scott C.] (Thanks, Josh!)
