Artist Maurizio Cattelan has installed 2 tiny elevators in the Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin in Paris. Reportedly they open and close while making the appropriate elevator noises. (Perhaps including a small bottle titled “Drink Me” in the vicinity would make for a modern update to Alice in Wonderland.)
I had the pleasure to meet fellow exhibitor Keith Quinn at the recent Staple! Independent Media Expo in Austin. Clever work and great drawing skills! Be sure and check out his site for more info and you can purchase Local Heroes here.
La Détente is an animated short movie produced and directed by Pierre DUCOS and Bertrand BEY. In a trench during the first world war, a French soldier becomes paralyzed with fear. His mind disconnects from reality and escapes to a world where wars are fought by toys.

His web comic has been compiled into the impressive print collection Greetings From Wonderland.

Last weekend during the Staple! show I had the pleasure of finally meeting the tremendously talented Lisa Turner of Turner’s Tokens. If you’re in the Austin area this weekend for SXSW and are a Steampunk fan, put the Elysium Steampunk Ball on your list of things to do. Card sets have been donated for their Midnight Costume Contest.
We had the pleasure of meeting the energetic and talented duo of Bram and Monica Meehan last weekend at Staple!

Visit Bram and Monica’s Panel Press site for a host of great offerings and learn more about Independent Comics from New Mexico at the 7000 B.C. site.
Artist and writer Travis Nichols was a great booth neighbor to have at the Staple! show.

Check out his I Like Apple Juice site for lots of art, musings, comics, music, greeting cards and animal detectives.
Back from our weekend exhibiting at the Staple! Independent Media Expo in Austin, TX. We had a great time with lots of sales, seeing old friends and making new ones. A big thank you to everyone that came out to show their support!
This week I’ll be sharing info about some of the great talents and fellow exhibitors we met. First up, the insanely funny and talented duo of Colleen AF Venable and Marianne Ways. They’ve collaborated on writing “Lumberjacks: A Field Guide”. With great writing, a host of clever illustrators contributing to the fun and a cut out cover with felt beard, you have to snag a copy of this gem!
Be sure and visit Colleen’s site Here for loads of other incredible projects.
Marianne’s site Here that also includes her wonderful jewelry.
