~DASH SHAW/FRANK SANTORO/BOOKSIGNING
TALK ABOUT A BUZZ KILL, DUDE !!
artlovers is in a huge tech melt-down.
the site was taken over by aliens. just joking.
the site was taken on a server up-grade and did not make the leap.
short story – only the WORDPRESS section sort-of works – and only in this limited format. the BOMB is almost bombproof – but the home page is frozen.
all the custom photo pages are busted – cannot up-date. even here on the BOMB, the left-hand side ARCHIVES – are gone. no comment. bummer.
movie and music reviews – in a complete state of wipe-out.
so heads up – all you hard-core artlovers junkies – artlovers is in SECRET MODE, now !!
with the HOME PAGE busted – will try to work on this page.
TO-NITE – TUES APRIL 20, 2010 – 7 PM: FRANK SANTORO AND DASH SHAW at McNALLY JACKSON BOOKS – 52 PRINCE ST bet LAFAYETTE & MULBERRY. NOHO.
so first, hit the ‘APRIL 20’ link – and read the smart in-house review of DASH SHAW’S – ‘BodyWorld’ – on the McNALLY JACKSON site !!
POSTED BY NANCY SMITH – TUES APRIL 20, 2010 – 2 PM
apart from the obvious visual richness and originality of the book – this reviewer makes nice mention of Dash’s . . . “love for mystery. There were many codes, or strange elements in ‘Bottomless BellyButton’ (this reviewer’s ‘favorite graphic novel of 2008’), that went little-remarked-upon and never solved . . . all of this strangeness and panting humanity comes to light in ‘BodyWorld'” . . .
‘Bodyworld’ – originally began as comic series on Dash Shaw’s own website.
Conversing with DASH – will be FRANK SANTORO – fellow cartoonist and downtown fave – the artist behind the “revered” ‘Storeyville’ and a “gorgeous new” series – ‘Cold Heat’.
