Cartoonist Tim Hensley stopped by Giant Robot 2 yesterday to sign copies of his epic new graphic novel, Wally Gropius. It’s an irresistable satire about a Huey Lewis-obsessed teenage millionaire who falls under the threat of disinheritance if he refuses to marry “the saddest girl in the world,” launching an increasingly bizarre odyssey involving an icy seductress with a taste of money, men and national anthems.
Jordan Rae from Family made these Tim Hensley prints feel like velvet by sprinkling some magical fuzzy shit on them. I still don’t quite understand the process but it’s insane.
GR2 has a great show up right now called Butter and Blood featuring work from Marc Johns and Steven Weissman. Below are a few of my favorite pieces by Johns.
