Hicotea All Ages Book Release Party
With Lorena Alvarez
Sunday, March 31st
We are excited to be hosting Lorena Alvarez, the wonderful artist behind Nightlights, for the release of her latest book!
This all ages event will have art, snacks, and comics, so make sure to bring the whole family!
About Hicotea: In this mesmerising follow-up to Nightlights, Lorena Alvarez explores our relationship with nature and animals.
On a school field trip to the river, Sandy wanders away from her classmates and discovers an empty turtle shell. Peeking through the dark hole, she suddenly finds herself within a magical new dimension. Filled with sculptures, paintings and books, the turtle’s shell is a museum of the natural world. But one painting is incomplete, and the turtle needs Sandy’s help to finish it…
For the month of January, swing by SHQ to check out our trippiest show yet.
Through the ’80s and ’90s, Art Instruction Schools littered the pages of comic books and magazines with ads for their learn–to–draw correspondence course. SHQ asked artists from around the world to create new pieces that riff on their original “Art Test”. We sent out our own version of the test and will display the pages we got in response.
With contributions from:
Hannah K. Lee
Sung Hyun Kim
Pieces are available for purchase in store and online!
Real Deal Comix Signing
Saturday, January 19th
Lawrence (Rawdog) Hubbard will be at SHQ signing copies of his Real Deal Comix, which trades in what it calls the genre of Urban Chaos — a satiric depiction of the madness that occurs in the urban centers of America. Each story details the everyday struggles of the urban dwellers who go off on each other out of the rage and futility that their lives bring them. Basically, it’s nutso violent comics goodness. Come meet Rawdog!
