My favorite time of the year is just around the corner. This year I was invited to contribute to a group exhibition featuring works from members of both the Philadelphia Cartoonist Society and the Autumn Society. Melissa and I dropped our pieces off this past Saturday. All I can say is…This is going to be an amazing show. I got a sneak peak of a few of the pieces on Saturday and a couple of the artists have been posting their contributions on their blogs. Some really beautiful stuff is going to be on display.
For my piece I decided to turn one of my current projects, a web comic slated for release early next year, into a three color silkscreen print. It was with the magical expertise of Mr. James Heimer I was able to make this happen. The piece is titled “Intestinal Fortitude”, I made a small print run of 63 pieces, each one is signed and numbered.
As I mentioned a couple of the artists have begun to post their pieces on their blogs. You can see the work of Tim Durning, Kyle Margiotta and Christine Larsen to name a few. With over 30 artists participating there is sure to be something for everyone!
