Been spending quite a bit of time in Oak Cliff of late, and if you need me 'round 6 tomorrow eve, no doubt I'll be accompanying the 6-year-old who lives in my house to The Soda Gallery for the Star Wars Fan Appreciation Art Show -- otherwise known as "These Aren't the Droids You're Looking For," as evidenced by the three hand-printed limited-edition silk-screened posters TSG's Jonathan Kimbrell's cooked up for the event. (He's made 20 each of the posters featuring Darth Vader, Princess Leia and an Imperial Stormtrooper, though only the latter will be ready in time for purchasing at tomorrow's event.) The Napkin Art-ist says there will be 15 to 20 pieces in the show, including a contribution from Lawrence Reynolds, assembled by Boomstick Comics owner Bryan Kluger.
Then there's this interesting note found on The Soda Gallery blog: Next week at ye old pop shoppe, Kimbrell's debuting his new line of tees via his partnership with Junkytees. It's called Deathray of Sunshine, which, from the looks of the line, will appeal to fans of, oh, Johnny Cash and Betty Page and Andy Warhol, for starters.
So, tomorrow then. Maybe a bite at Eno's after.
