Fantagraphics' own Lilli Carré and Mome-veteran Eleanor Davis are just a couple of the artists whose work will be featured in the exhibit I See What You Say: Visual Stories and Narrative Art.
Opening at the Cartoon Art Museum in San Francisco, CA, on Saturday, March 16th, I See What You Say explores narrative as expressed through a wide range of illustrative media — in picture books, comics, editorial art, and beyond. The participants are not just artists, but storytellers, joining their artistic practices with their own narrative styles.
Alongside Lilli and Eleanor, there will also be books and artwork on display from Vanessa Davis, Carson Ellis, Jon Klassen, Roman Muradov, Aaron Renier, Christian Robinson, Dasha Tolstikova, Craig Thompson, Sara Varon and Angie Wang.
A public reception will be held on Sunday, April 28th at 5:00 PM, with appearances by guest contributors Jon Klassen, Roman Muradov, and Christian Robinson, among others. Christian will be signing his new book, Rain! by Linda Ashman, and Jon will be joined by local author Lemony Snicket to sign their new picture book, The Dark.
The show runs through July 7, 2013, at the Cartoon Art Museum [ 655 Mission Street, San Francisco ].
