In Christ There Is No East or West by Mike Taylor

“Ok, here I go. Remember to steer into it — Don’t take your mind off it, get comfortable in your discomfort — Your body isn’t trying to kill you — Panic attacks aren’t actually dangerous — your heart will beat totally normally soon…” Thus begins Mike Taylor’s raw and beautiful soul cry for America, as a modern-day Virgil in a hoody traverses the gasping and confusing psychological landscape of right now.













We’ll also have Parallel Lives by Olivier Schrauwen making its East Coast debut and a limited number of our stunning Charles Burns Black Hole Studio Editions, which Burns will be available to sign!



11am—Jim Woodring’s Magic Pen: Master cartoonist Jim Woodring will demonstrate his one-of-a-kind giant fountain pen as cartoonist Lauren Weinsten asks about his about his long career and new book, Poochytown. Stick around afterwards for a chance to try out the pen yourself!

1pm—Olivier Schrauwen: Parallel Lives: Austin English looks into Olivier Schrauwen’s career from “My Boy” until now. A rare opportunity for US audiences to hear the Belgian artist speak about his thrilling, confounding and visually spectacular work. Prepare your questions for audience Q&A following the discussion.
