Notebook Nerd // The Sketchbook Project
We are very excited about our next show, opening THIS FRIDAY!
It's called NOTEBOOK NERD, the much-anticipated solo exhibition from artist JIM RUGG.
Mr. RUGG, the Swiss Army Knife of artists (and longtime iam8bit collaborator, since all the way back to 2005), gives us an insane perspective inside his brainhole, exposing the terrors and delights that populate his thoughts every, single day. While his comics "Street Angel" and "Afrodisiac" have already been dubbed classics by the indie scene, Rugg's art in this show is different. It's truly an exercise in precision.
His only tool: the mighty ballpoint pen.
And his unlikely canvas: spiral-bound notebook paper.
And as a special treat, Mr. Rugg will be in attendance... all the way from Pennsylvania!
And if you are interested in purchasing pieces from the show and would like an advance preview, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
iam8bit will also be hosting the Los Angeles leg of The Sketchbook Project THIS WEEKEND... and if you're around, it's a MUST!
It's like a concert, but with sketchbooks, featuring a collection of thousands upon thousands of artists' sketchbooks from across the globe. It really is worth checking out this ONE-OF-A-KIND experience for yourself.
FRIDAY, MAY 25 (7 to 11pm)
SATURDAY, MAY 26 (5 to 9pm)
