This Friday, September 19th, will be the opening of In Search Of, a joint concept exhibition between Edie Overturf and myself at Public Functionary, a gallery in Northeast Minneapolis. Edie’s woodcuts and reliefs will join my paintings and drawings in a show that riffs on the creation myths and histories found in folklore, religion, and mythology.
Our idea was to develop five tribes and for each of us to elaborate upon and document two of them. We worked on these separately and shared our progress halfway through the show’s development in order to gain access to each other’s story lines for use in repeating and overlapping motifs. Each tribe has a unique way in how they depict themselves and others in their history, in this way, we also riff on our own history and the history of other nations.

Eel Mansions creator Derek Van Gieson gave a lengthy interview to The Comics Alternative podcast. He discusses the book, his past work on Mome and his relationship with Uncivilized publisher Tom K. Plus, Derek gives us the apt, one-line description for Eel Mansions: “The Young and the Restless meets the X-Files.” How can you say no to that?

Submitted six new demos to the band yesterday. This one sounds like the end of summer.
