Richest Poor Guy

Today on the site: Mike Dawson talks to Caitlin McGurk and Jim Rugg about Ghost World and The Death Ray.

And Eleanor Davis brings us Day 4 of her excellent cartoon diary.

Elsewhere:

Gary Panter is opening a new painting show next week. It’s a really remarkable body of work, linked together by a new approach to his paint handling and an ongoing preoccupation with the idea of water. I’ve watched this work develop over the past two years and I’m just blown away by seeing it all together. In other Gary news, he’s written this fine appreciation of Ray Johnson for The Paris Review.

In other art news, here’s a review of the very excellent Chicago Imagists documentary, which includes Gary and yours truly.

Back in comics, here’s a funny interview with Johnny Ryan. And a San Diego rundown by Michael Dooley; also: a nice look at a manga-in-America footnote.

In swipe file news, somewhere Kate Beaton is thinking: “Ripped off again?!”

    Interesting to see Wirsum and Paschke do so much illustration work for Playboy in the 80s. I actually prefer Wirsum’s work there over his gallery stuff, it’s tighter and more vivid in my opinion.
