Verse, Stripped | Exhibit

This show, which I believe was curated by Katherine Litwin, just opened in Chicago at the venerable Poetry Foundation. It includes the original artwork of a few of my poetry comics, along with that of fellow travelers Sommer Browning, Bianca Stone, and Paul K. Tunis. Books by Kenneth Koch and (my all-time biggest hero) Joe Brainard will also be on view. My fellow cartoonist and occasional hangout pal Matt Madden will be giving a talk on the intersection of poetry and comics on August 1, the day after my 50th birthday. And, yes, I plan to be there for Matt's talk (as do the other artists), so say hi if you're there.
