Q & A with Jo Dery (part 1)

We first learned of Providence, RI artist Jo Dery when we picked up her mini comics Plant Life for Human Lesson. We were immediately drawn to her bold style and interesting narratives, but little did we know what a multi-media talent she was (filmmaking, animation, screen printing, and sewing are just some of the things she excels at). Her work with us so far has included cards, a notepad, the wonderful book Quietly Sure - Like the Keeper of a Great Secret, and an awesome window display and prints for our SF store. Thanks to Jo for taking the time to answer some of our questions! The characters of Quietly Sure seemed to already have a full life before you...

Event: Simon Evans Show In NY

If you find yourself in New York you may enjoy Simon Evans' Show that opened yesterday at the James Cohan Gallery. Simon was nice enough to make this bookmark for us a while ago and we think it's some of the best 50 cents you can spend. Simon and Lart have been working on this show for months and months and it's awesome to see the results! From the Gallery's website: "Simon Evan's delicate text-based works are collaged and assembled from prosaic materials including found paper, scotch tape, pencil shavings, colored pencil and white out. They describe a world poised between two poles of earnestness and irony. With his anxieties laid bare and his wry brand of melancholy, Evans presents...
