DANG! It’s The Art of Martin Cendreda

The Art of Martin Cendreda
at
SECRET HEADQUARTERS
Friday June 2nd, 2006

Secret Headquarters is pleased to announce our art
opening with Martin Cendreda.

The Los Angeles-based illustrator has worked on
Comedy Central’s South Park TV show and movie,
but Cendreda is most proud of his Zurik Robot and
Dang! mini-comics. With his Dang! comic, Cendreda,
illustrates the tragic life of Herbert Hound
and his encounters with obnoxious teens, fashion
conscious yuppies, and homeless orphans.
Beginning with cute-yet-melancholy one-panel gags,
Cendreda’s work has evolved into longer forms of
storytelling that maintain his clear spontaneous
style and dark humor.

Cendreda’s comics and illustrations have appeared in
1-UP, Giant Robot, Peko-Peko, Dazed and Confused,
XLR8R, and Arthur.

Martin Cendreda will attend the opening from 8pm to 10pm.

Secret Headquarters will feature Cendreda’s one of a
kind original works of art through June 25th, 2006.

The AWAKE FIELD
The Art of Ron Regé Jr. at
SECRET HEADQUARTERS
Friday May 5th, 2006

Secret Headquarters is pleased to announce our art
opening and THE AWAKE FIELD book release
with Ron Regé Jr.

Regé is best known for creating his own visual poetry
that sets him apart from other cartoonists as one of
the most original artists to enter the medium in the
past decade. His storytelling is neither linear nor
altogether accessible; however, his recognizable thin
line and cute characters draw you into a dreamlike,
sensitive fantasy world that, as odd as it seems, is
entirely realistic. His comics have appeared in
McSweeney’s, and his illustrations have appeared
regularly in The New York Times and Canada’s National
Post. He currently lives in Los Angeles where he plays
drums in The Lavender Diamond Band.

THE AWAKE FIELD is a collection of Regé’s reflections
of small town life during a recent 2-year sabbatical
in a coastal community in southern Rhode Island.
Short stories collide and swirl together leaving
visions of mysterious creatures floating through
lush landscapes, pantomimed fairy tales,
hypnotic dances, Bible quotations, and peace
comics, all in Regé’s idiosyncratic and abstract
poetic cartoon language.

Ron Regé Jr. will attend the opening from 7pm to 9pm.

Secret Headquarters is proud to celebrate the debut of
Ron Regé Jr.’s The Awake Field book which is published
by Drawn and Quarterly.

Secret Headquarters will feature Regé’s one of a kind
original works of art through June 2nd, 2006.
