I drew a puzzle for Chicago Independent Bookstore Day, which happens for the first time on July 12th. Nine bookstores in different neighborhoods around the city will each have a different piece of the puzzle for people to gather. It’ll be a great day to support and explore Chicago’s local bookshops! There will be events throughout the day at the different stores involving pies, signings and readings and yes gazpacho. More info is here.

A few pictures from the beautiful, wild and mind-bending SKVER! art festival that took place on the island of Mali Losinj in Croatia this past week.  We returned to Zagreb last night, a little sunburned and very inspired.

The Hairy Who and the Chicago Imagists documentary is playing tomorrow night (May 20) at the MCA Chicago and also on June 6th at Block Cinema in Evanston, both with discussions afterwards. Here is a great and thorough piece written about the documentary and the artists on the Hyperallergic site. Above are a couple stills from the animation segments and titles that I drew for the film.
