Elizabeth Haidle will sign copies of her gorgeous new book, Party of One, at Fantagraphics Bookstore and Gallery from 1:00-2:00 pm PST! She’ll also be jazzing up the front window of the store and we can’t wait to see how it looks–stop on by!
Offering keen and thoughtful insight into the creative process, this collection of lush figurative watercolor drawings is a fascinating glimpse into the whimsical mind of one of the most imaginative illustrators working today.
For the past five plus years, Portland-based artist Elizabeth Haidle has attended figure drawing sessions and honed her illustration skills. Party of One gathers together a medley of her most dazzling watercolor creations from this period. Delightful to look at, these lushly painted drawings also uncover the nuances of expression and gesture and evoke the personalities behind the poses. In addition to the gorgeous art, this collection offers insights into the creative process. Each tableaux of painted figures is accompanied by commentary from the artist herself — fresh, philosophical, funny, thought provoking, and brief — like the musings of David Shrigley.
If you get your copy of Party of One at the event, you’ll get an exclusive riso printed bookmark (while supplies last)!
