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!
