A logo I designed for Green Apple’s new bookstore across the street from County Fair Building in Golden Gate Park, where SF zinefest will take place very soon. I will be there with YZ5 and other new things.The actual thing is greener for good reasons, but I still like this original color scheme. They’re planning to print it on tote bags too.
I did walk around with a notebook writing down every bit of overheard smalltalk with the express intention of arranging them into a hymn, but then nothing metered much and when I sat down to read the succession of bits the result was deeply disturbing. Hence this.
And that’s YZ5 finished.
Here’s a nice review of Picnic Ruined (…it takes a lot of audacity to begin anything with the phrase, “God, this is dull”), which I drew exactly a year ago in about two months.
My life and work is a celebration of futility, so tonight I decided to revisit the places in the comic via the most vulgar transport imaginable.
Also, the originals from PR are for sale at Telegraph Gallery.
New spot series for the New Yorker (July 28th issue) all about booze and chairs, but mainly chairs.
