Notebook Nerd – Jim Rugg
he title is pretty self-explanatory, as “NOTEBOOK NERD” almost says it all. JIM RUGG, the Swiss Army Knife of artists (and longtime iam8bit collaborator), 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.
