Flora exhibit in Seattle

Barbara and I will be curating the first Jim Flora art exhibit since—well, since the artist's memorial service in 1998. The exhibit, named after our second book, "The Curiously Sinister Art of Jim Flora," takes place at the Fantagraphics Bookstore/Gallery. The exhibit will run from September 22 through October 24.

The Florafest will include original paintings, fine art prints, woodcut relief prints, record covers, music ephemera, and Little Man Press artifacts. There will also be stuff you can buy that has Flora mischief all over it.

Barbara and I will be on hand for an opening reception on September 22. More details forthcoming as arrangements are finalized.

Hey that is a great design. Are you selling posters of that? I would like to get one.

We have received a number of requests for that poster -- which is actually NOT a poster, it's a postcard designed by Fantagraphics to promote the exhibit. We plan to produce a limited edition (giclée or screen) print of this poster. Watch the blog and JimFlora.com for release info.
