Remember that fantastic David B. show that was up in our gallery earlier this summer that you missed? Well, if you are anywhere near New Orleans, you'll have another chance. Throughout the month of November, LSU Museum of Art, in conjunction with the College of Art and Design, is presenting David B.'s "My Story / My Stories", featuring over 20 original pages of comic art from the acclaimed author of Epileptic throughout the month of November.
David B. will visit LSU and New Orleans in mid-November in conjunction with the exhibit, featuring over 20 pages from Epileptic, MOME, and more. The author and artist will appear at the museum Thursday evening, November 13 from 6 - 8pm.
David B.: My Story / My Stories was originally curated by Cynthia Rose & Kim Thompson for the Alliance Française de Seattle, Fantagraphics Books and 4Culture of King County. David B. and his exhibition have been brought to Baton Rouge through the support of the Book Office of the French Embassy and the French Consulate in New Orleans.
Robert Pollard and Hard Pressed Studios have released the first in a series of 5 limited-edition silkscreen prints based on Bob's collage artwork (as seen in our new book Town of Mirrors). The first, Greetings from Camp Confusion, is available now from Rockathon Records (Bob's official merch arm) or direct from the printer.
Flog!'s North Carolina Bureau Chief Rob Clough attended the opening of the Dash Shaw show at Duke this past Friday night and was kind enough to provide us with this exclusive report:
Dash Shaw's show BOTTOMLESS at the John Hope Franklin Center at Duke University debuted on Thursday, September 25th. The well-attended opening was a multi-media affair that was as much about process as it was about a final product. The way that curator Diego Cortez designed the show gave a unique glimpse into Shaw's method. By juxtaposing Shaw's original pencils against his color sheets on the walls of the exhibit, the viewer could see the way Shaw composes color for his pages is unusual. On display were pencils and color pages from his webcomic BodyWorld and MOME short stories "Train" and the upcoming "Satellite CMYK". That latter story may well be his best effort yet.
There were also some other unusual entries, like a drawing Shaw made of himself and Barack Obama as surfers.
