~SPX 2012 . . . & UP-DATE . . CHRIS WARE to be at BCGF 2012 !!
SPX / SMALL PRESS EXPO is this weekend: SEPT 15-16, 2012 – BETHESDA, MARYLAND
founded in 1994 . . . this festivity celebrates ‘non-mainstream publishing’ and was ‘created to promote artists and publishers who produce independent comics’.
yep, the SPX 2012 POSTER – IS . . . by CHRIS WARE. it’s spawned a whole mini-universe of well-deserved, huge fan comments already, as in: “awesome, I have no words . . . ” – google it.
yep, it rates a close-up !!
in fact, the title slogan on the SPX 2012 poster is: “celebrating 200,000 years of non-mainstream publishing activity”. ha. though I think the earliest ‘documented’ cavemen drawings only go back 40,000 years, or so, but what’s a couple of hundred thousand years in the face of great art !!
we get the message, right on !!
p.s. YOU CAN FIND THE LARGE SPX 2012 – CHRIS WARE – POSTER, here !!
. . . . . . . .
UP-DATE: SAT SEPT 15, 2012 – TALKING ABOUT . . . CHRIS WARE !!
