ART SHOWS!

Dan Zettwoch organized a show of art based on movie villians, which sounds great. But more importantly he made this badass poster. OPENS TONIGHT in SAINT LOUIS.

And NEXT WEEK in CHICAGO Jesse LeDoux has a show of paintings at the Rotofugi gallery. I've seen a little of what he's been up to and I would not miss this if I were near that gallery.

Every page of Chris Ware's Jimmy Corrigan on a wall

We recently received the following email:

"Hello, my name is Daniel Maw and I am a graduate art student at the University of Tennessee Knoxville. Recently, I worked with some of my fellow graduate colleagues (we range in age from 23 to 31) to curate a show highlighting contemporary print media in all its facets. I recommended we show the work of Chris Ware, including Jimmy Corrigan. In order to showcase the epic nature of this comic we elected to purchase two copies, cut the bindings off each, collate the pages, and display all [390] pages in a grid on a 23 x 10 foot wall. It is quite impressive to take it all in at once as it demonstrates the tremendous amount of talent and work that went in to the creation of the book."

Wow, no kidding! Many more eye-boggling and more-detailed photos, including the installation in progress, can be seen at Daniel's blog. Very cool, Daniel, and thanks for sharing!

(Update: here is a link to the gallery website with more info about the exhibit; when the exhibit ends it will be archived here.)

The book features over 25 new paintings, complete with essays on each piece by the artist, insights into the process behind each painting (including sketches, underpaintings, etc.), and many other surprises, including an introduction by painter, tattoo artist and international tattoo cultural advocate Don Ed Hardy.

The show runs through Jan 31. Art Nouveau Mag has a preview. The show features new paintings, drawings, and for the first time, sculptures. The show will continue in February at Cal State Northridge. 

  

Los Angeles: Jon Vermilyea.
Written by Jacob Covey | Filed under jon vermilyeaart shows 3 Sep 2009 6:00 PM

Not-to-be-missed Jon Vermilyea show opens Friday night in Los Angeles. I lifted this info straight off the Secret Headquarters site:

jvshq.jpg

I believe Jon told me this show is all prints he drew reinterpreting the infamous "Mars Attacks" trading cards from the 1960s.  Jon's old silkscreen book was a jewel of pop culture sickness that mashed-up the legend of Hercules' Trials with He-Man's life in Eternia. Like a Saturday Morning cartoon made by an acid-tripping Basil Wolverton, these Vermilyea interpretations should be amazing in person.

Meanwhile, in case you need a meat shirt, find one here. Or a print. Whatever.

Note to Jon: More "Princes of Time" soon please.

A short-n-sweet Online Commentary & Diversions update:

• Review: "While Prison Pit does, in fact, have a definable story throughout, it’s one that feels as though it were crafted in the margins of a spiral-bound notebooks stowed safely away in some backpack littered with the Sharpie penned names of metal bands. And though Ryan didn’t go so far as to in append a listening soundtrack to the back of this volume, one can almost certainly be assured that it contains its share of Cannibal Corpse and Slayer tracks." - Brian Heater, The Daily Cross Hatch

• Events: The Seattle Weekly recommends that you see the "dark, cynical, ornery, a tad cantankerous" Comics Savants exhibit at our Bookstore & Gallery today

• Crime: Prompted by the release of Prince Valiant Vol. 1: 1937-1938, The Journal News "LoHud" blog recalls the 1989 theft of over 100 Valiant originals from the Museum of Cartoon Art
