Written by janice headley | Filed under eventsDave Cooperart shows 10 Sep 2013 10:13 AM

But indeed, they will, in a show titled Eddy Table and Other Misbehavers! So head over there on Thursday, September 19th at 7:00 PM for a wonderful show, affiliated with the great Ottawa International Animation Festival! (You might recall, another Fantagraphics artist Max Andersson will screen first feature-length film Tito on Ice at this animation festival, too!)

Dave will have a ton of affordable drawings and doodles available, as well as a cool super-affordable, specially-priced inaugural fine art print to celebrate his new printing venture! There will also be live music, drinks, and, Dave teases, maybe even a couple of musical surprises...

La Petite Mort Gallery is located at 306 Cumberland Street in Ottawa.
