  • Theres a group show in San Diego

    I just got in a comics-themed group show,STRIP: Caricatures, Satire and The Funnies at the Studio Door Gallery in San Diego, CA. I got the email a week before a trip to NYC, so the framing was a rush job, but they look pretty good.

    the show opens July 3rd 6-9pm at The Studio Door, 3750 30th Street - North Park

    PRESS RELEASE:

    CARTOONS AND POP ART STRIP DOWN IN NORTH PARK ART SHOW
    The Studio Door celebrates Caricatures, Satire and The Funnies

    SAN DIEGO, California — STRIP: Caricatures, Satire and The Funnies opens on July 3 presenting new, independent voices of the comic strip. The month-long exhibition of original art takes its inspiration from traditional strips, single gag panels and caricatures that have entertained us in newspapers, underground publications and on the Internet.

    A diverse collection of artists have been juried by Javier Hernandez. Hernandez is a cartoonist who is known for his comic book titles “El Puerto,” “Maniac Priest,” “The Coma,” and “Dead Dinosaurio.” He co-founded the Latino Comics Expo, the nation’s first convention dedicated to spotlighting the work of Latino creative talent working comics and pop art. Highlights of STRIP exhibition include the humorous vignettes of Sallie Whistler Marcucci, the stinging political caricatures of Gary Aagaard, and lush block prints of Maclovio Cantu IV.

    This exhibition represents the second time that Javier Hernandez and The Studio Door owner Patric Stillman have joined forces. In 2007, Patric Stillman curated an exhibition of Latino illustrators and animators at the San Diego Art Institute in conjunction with the first Cine’Mation showcase at the San Diego Latino Film Festival. The showcase featured Javier’s cult comic book El Muerto, which was adapted for theaters in a feature film starring Wilmer Valderrama (That 70’s Show).

    “It wasn’t Van Gogh or Warhol that moved me as a young man. It was the pulp fiction and comic book illustrators. Jack Kirby, Mike Grell, Sergio Aragones and Frank Frazetta were the first artists that really opened my eyes,” said Patric Stillman. “In the 70’s, I spent much of my free time fascinated with the visual storytelling of these talented artists. I’m thrilled to have The Studio Door produce a show like this bringing attention to new voices in the medium”

    STRIP: Caricatures, Satire and The Funnies runs from July 3 through July 26. An opening reception at the North Park gallery will be held on the 3rd from 6 PM to 9 PM. The show will continue with regular hours Tuesday through Sunday with extended hours during July’s Ray at Night on the 11th. Check the website at thestudiodoor.com for more details.
