Scenes from a Town of Mirrors
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Robert Pollard 5 Sep 2008 11:10 AM

  

Here's a swell recap of our recent Robert Pollard book release party, courtesy our pal Rob Clough. Thanks to Rob for the recpap and pics (and be sure to check out Rob's writing about comics, he's one of the best on the Net):

On a rainy Durham evening on August 15th, Merge Records hosted a book release party and art exhibit for Robert Pollard. Merge has released the last several solo albums of the former Guided By Voices lead singer, so Durham was a fitting site for the debut of TOWN OF MIRRORS, a tribute to his remarkable eye as a visual artist. His works included art from his album covers, drawings, paintings, collage and other mixed media. The opening was part of a monthly "Third Friday" art walk in downtown Durham, and the small Merge gallery was quickly packed. I snapped these photos just a few minutes after the doors opened, finding a relaxed Pollard talking to friends (that's him in the striped shirt):

Some of the works featured in the photos include "Everything's Baby", "Gratification To Concrete", "The Kids Eat It Up", "The Floating Babies In Space", "Church of the Sci-Fi Episode 23 Too Much Information" "Church of the Sci-Fi Episode 7 Visit This Place", and "Off To Business".

Krazy and Ignatz: The Complete Sunday Strips 1935-1944 by George Herriman

Krazy and Ignatz: The Complete Sunday Strips 1935-1944
By George Herriman

Our second limited-edition deluxe Krazy hardcover (it's Volume 3, but the second to be published; Volume 1 is still forthcoming) collects the second batch of five Krazy & Ignatz softcover books we have published, comprehensively compiling the years 1935 through 1944, under hard covers. It's not a slipcase, it's a single hardcover book. The covers to the original five softcover books are NOT included, but literally everything else is. And yes, we are similarly collecting the years 1916-1924 as those softcover volumes are completed. (Since we get asked this once in a while — even though it's covered in the first one we did, at the end of the book, ahem — YES, we will go back and reprint the years prior to 1925.) Because of the limited nature of this item, we are not distributing this through traditional bookstores or Diamond distribution. A beautiful, must-have brick of a book for the Ignatz in you (though lobbing it at any unrequited love interests WILL cause serious physical harm — be warned).

Maybe you bought Mome #12 and now you're craving more fun with food from Jon Vermilyea. If so, Vice has a strip for you.

Forney covers The Stranger

The Stranger cover by Ellen Forney

What makes this extra-great is that it's totally hand-lettered rather than typeset as usual. I've always dug Ellen's lettering.

Georgetown Art Attack Is Back!
Written by Larry Reid | Filed under Fantagraphics Bookstoreevents 4 Sep 2008 1:32 PM

Georgetown Second Saturday Art Attack

The public of all ages is once again invited to enjoy the unique pleasures of Seattle’s most colorful arts community during the Georgetown Second Saturday Art Attack on September 13. This lively celebration of Georgetown’s creative diversity involves up to 30 enterprises programming provocative visual and performing arts, dining, shopping and spontaneous entertainment.

Highlights of the Art Attack offensive on Saturday, September 13 include:
“Phono Graphics,” an exquisite exhibition by Seattle DJ and visual artist David Rauschenberg at Georgetown Tile Works. Rauschenberg combines his passion for art and music with portraits of musical legends etched on black vinyl and mounted on handcrafted turntables; An appearance by notorious New York cartoonist and illustrator Danny Hellman, together with local cartoonists D. J. Bryant, Dalton Webb, Pat Moriarity, Max Clotfelter, and Mark Campos for a book signing of the new “Typhon” anthology at Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery. Hellman will present a multimedia cartoon performance and Moriarity will perform a short music set with his 10-year-old son Jack – as seen on Willie Nelson’s website; Georgetown Art Center presents a group show of seductive encaustic paintings, and All City Coffee hosts a delightful exhibition of neo-Pop paintings by Lucas Vidana; Open salons at the studios of independent Georgetown artists.

Summer's Last Beach Party flyer

The evening will conclude with “The Summer’s Last Beach Party” in honor of the artists, volunteers, and sponsors of last summer’s Artopia arts festival. Musical entertainment will be provided by the sensational sounds of the DEL LAGUNAS. This instrumental surf and garage combo boasts an impressive pedigree that marks the reunion of [former Fantagraphics staffer - Ed.] Tom Price and Chas Ryan of Seattle’s legendary U-Men. The Del Lagunas will be joined by Georgetown’s own DUBCAR performing a sensuous Caribbean blend of rock ‘n’ roll, old school reggae, funk and soul. Frothy surf films, fabulous music, sand, suds, sun and fun all located at the exotic environment of The Stables. The Georgetown Art Attack is a promotion of the Georgetown Merchants’ Association. For more information contact GMA chair Kathy Nyland, or Larry Reid.

Enid's Soul Mate.

Someone pointed out the Clowesian character in the bottom left of the new Abel/Madden drawing book and I knew the image was familiar so I did some digging around. Sure enough it's white girl Enid as black man Ed.
