Twain in the Membrane: Desert Island Print
Written by janice headley | Filed under Michael Kuppermanmerchevents 20 Sep 2011 4:12 PM

Michael Kupperman print for Desert Island

Michael Kupperman ponders the possibilities of Mark Twain's passing in this positively perfect print for Desert Island in Brooklyn. (My favorite possibility? Shot in the crotch.)

Get your own copy of this historically accurate print on Thursday, October 13th, at the book release party for Mark Twain's Autobiography 1910-2010.  Store owner Gabriel Fowler notes that if there are any prints leftover at the end of the night (unlikely!), they'll be available online.

Keep an eye on all our Twain in the Membrane tour dates on the Fantagraphics Events page!

Power Up This Weekend at the Fantagraphics Bookstore
Written by janice headley | Filed under Warren BernardFantagraphics BookstoreeventsDrawing Power 20 Sep 2011 12:24 PM

Drawing Power flyer

This is one powerful event, indeed.

This coming Saturday, September 24th, two crazy forces of talent will collide in one evening at the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery.

Editor Warren Bernard (you may know him as the Executive Director of SPX) will present a slideshow and discussion for his brand-new Fantagraphics title Drawing Power: A Compendium of Cartoon Advertising. The exhibit of vintage advertising material looks tremendous, and Warren's slideshows are not to be missed!

And the evening only intensifies in power with the addition of special guest, L.A.-based artist Tom Neely, who is currently on a west coast tour for his brand-new "painted novel," The Wolf

The Wolf West Coast tour poster

I got my first glimpse of The Wolf at the San Diego Comic Con this past summer. Oh, Tom didn't have a booth, no siree. He was strolling down the aisles, selling the thing straight out of his wheeled suitcase. I'm sorry, but it doesn't get more punk rock than that.

And then we started flipping through it... holy hell. The artwork was so dark and intense and beautiful. I may have caught our warehouse champ Ajax wiping a tear from his eye. (He's gonna kill me for sharing that.) (Okay, in his defense, maybe it was a flake of dried blood.)

The juxtaposition of these two diverse individuals appearing at the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery on the same night will be a powerful one indeed!

The event starts this Saturday, September 24th at 6:00 PM. Warren Bernard will give a slideshow presentation, followed by a video installation by Tom Neely. Both gentlemen will sign their books throughout the following reception until 8:00 PM.

The Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery is located at 1201 S. Vale Street (at Airport Way S.) in the Georgetown neighborhood of Seattle.

For the Benefit of Robots
Written by janice headley | Filed under Mark ToddJohn PhameventsEsther Pearl WatsonEleanor DavisAndrice Arp 20 Sep 2011 11:13 AM

Mark Todd for Giant Robot

Even robots need love, too, especially the giant ones.

And on Saturday, September 24th, Giant Robot 2 kicks off the exhibit "Robots," a benefit for their esteemed gallery space in Los Angeles.

Since opening their doors in 2003, GR2 has hosted exhibitions featuring many Fantagraphics artists on their walls, and this upcoming exhibit is no exception, featuring work by Andrice Arp, Eleanor Davis, John Pham, Mark Todd (whose artwork is shown above), and Esther Pearl Watson, among dozens of other incredibly talented folks. 

GR2 shows don't push their artists into contracts, and attendance is always free. If you've ever enjoyed any of their exhibits, we encourage you to support GR2 so they can continue to support independent artists for years to come!

"Robots" runs from September 24th to October 12th at GR2 [ 2062 Sawtelle Blvd, Los Angeles ], with an opening reception this Saturday from 6:30 - 10:00 PM

 

Taking Punk to the Masses Tour: Tacoma
Written by janice headley | Filed under Taking Punk to the Massesevents 20 Sep 2011 10:13 AM

The Taking Punk to the Masses Northwest tour wraps up this Thursday, September 22nd at the University Book Store in Tacoma... a city where apparently this happened:

Page from Taking Punk to the Masses
From the pages of Taking Punk to the Masses

Holy crap, do they mean shoegazer band Lush? With Nirvana? For $5? Less if you brought canned foods?

This is the kind-of amazing paraphernalia of the grunge-era that you can only find in Taking Punk to the Masses: From Nowhere to Nevermind! Join EMP Senior Curator/editor Jacob McMurray at 5:30 PM for a reading and discussion.

The University Bookstore is located at 1754 Pacific Ave in Tacoma. Somebody, ask him about that Nirvana show.
