While we wouldn't complain if you blew your entire art budget at our Beasts! print show, here are some other worthy things to spend your money on:
• Lots of good stuff at the WFMU Benefit Art Show
• Our own Kim Thompson provides some Eurocomics commentary in a letter to The Comics Reporter
Time for the new installment of Steven Weissman's in-progress pages from "Blue Jay," an epic 32-page story from Chocolate Cheeks, the next collection of the Yikes! gang's adventures. In this week's episode: Dear Diary...
A message from Mark Bode:
Hello out there, just a note to people who may want a Bode tattoo and live or are visiting in Europe I will be tattooing at Evil From The Needle, 232 Camden High street in London, on the dates above.
I will be tattooing by appointment only so you must call ahead of time.
• This much-discussed article by Steven Grant at Comic Book Resources has some nice things to say about Explainers by Jules Feiffer and Willie & Joe: The WWII Years by Bill Mauldin (and our own Eric Reynolds)
Some Fanta artist previews for the Post-It Show 3 at GR2.
December 13, 2008 - January 14, 2009
Curated by artists Mark Todd and Esther Pearl Watson and Giant Robot, the exhibition is slated to feature nearly 2,000 works by over 95 noted contributors each starting at only $20. These pieces will be on standard-sized 3 x 3 Post-It notes. (Larger sizes of 4 x 4 and 6x 6 will also be available.)
(*Speaking of Mark Todd -- he has a show at La Luz in LA coming January 2nd. Looks to include more of his beautiful Marvel Comics homages.)
