Drawings in Books 

A show of new drawings (and some other things) 

The exhibition includes a selection of books I have bought from different book shops in New York and Michigan and California (or found on my shelf (I am not sure where it came from)) and then drew a picture in.  

I liked the idea of people holding an original drawing in a book they were reading. I also liked the idea that maybe they will eventually forget about the drawing in the book and be surprised when they find it again after they pull it off their shelf someday to give the book a quick skim. Each drawn in book in the show will also be stamped and signed inside the back cover to indicate that it was part of this exhibition. 

Opening Saturday, August 31, 2013 from 5-8pm 
Up through the month of September

The Whitney Museum put this video together with footage shot during the Hopper Drawing Family Day Event.  I think it looks and sounds outstanding!!

I am excited that the Pau Wau Publications crew included this zine of drawings in there ZINE TIME Project.  They put together twenty zines by twenty artists.  The Newsstand is at the Lorimer L stop right now.  The zines in the series are only $1 each(bring a bag of quarters)!! Lele Saveri is running things over there.  A bunch of good books and posters and stickers and other things by a bunch of good people.  Go get some stuff!

I thought this spread was neat from a pamphlet from 1952 about the True-Life Adventure Series from Disney.  I like watching those movies but had never seen any of the people behind making them.

I will be doing a project at the Whitney Museum this Sunday that I wanted to invite you to. It will take place just down the steps after you walk in. We will all be drawing pictures of people and putting the pictures up on the wall for the day. We will all be showing work at the Whitney!

Supplies will be provided. Cookies will be provided by Milk Bar. I made a book of drawings that will also be free for you (if you’d like) and there will be other things.

The project will coincide with the new Edward Hopper drawing exhibition at the museum.

Sunday, June 2, 2013, from 10am-2pm (the first hour just for families. 11-2 for everybody)
