Comics Exhibit at Art Institute of Chicago Library...

Currently, there is an exhibit of comics from Chicago cartoonists at the Ryerson Library at the Art Institute of Chicago's museum. The comics are displayed under glass on the tables in the foreground of the photo above. The exhibit includes a few of my own mini-comics (Spit-Toons, Gag-Hag, etc.) and comics by other Chicagoans: Ivan Brunetti, Chris Ware, Anders Nilsen, Paul Hornschemeier, John Hankiewicz, Jeffrey Brown, Skip Williamson, Jessica Abel, and others that I can't remember right now. If you're in the neighborhood, check out the Ryerson Library (the show runs until the third week in June, I believe - call to make sure) - info below:

Congrats on the exhibition! I wish I was in Chicago to see your minis under glass and think to myself that I have read them sittin' on my crapper!

Hey thanks Bryce! S'Funny - some of the comics there are pinned down showing the insides, but mine are all displayed with the covers facing up. I suppose the best viewing space is in fact the john.
