SF – Emily the Strange Signing
Rob Reger and Buzz Parker sign on Sunday, February 14th, 2010 from 1pm to 3pm
Free and open to the public
Celebrate Valentines Day with Emily the Strange creators and Illustrators Rob Reger and Buzz Parker. Emily the Strange came to life in the early 1990s and quickly became a beloved counterculture icon all around the world. In her earliest years, she was a quiet but sharp-witted stranger, slinging philosophy and cultural observations in a series of hand-screened t-shirts and stickers. As her presence grew and became a standard in the cultural underground, Emily’s own story began to emerge in a series of gift books, then comic-books and graphic novels, and now a novel series for young adults.
Emily’s not your average thirteen year-old-girl. Pink is her worst nightmareâ€¦she wears the same black dress every day. She loves math and science. Her best friends are her four BLACK CATS! She’s into old rock & punk, but also digs newer bands like My Chemical Romance.
Today, Emily continues to be a voice for individualism and self-awareness, and her appeal is especially strong among alternative-minded young women and girls who identify with her signature singularity. Her presence in the worlds of art, pop culture, literature, and fashion celebrates non-conformist and reminds us all to cultivate that which makes us unique.
This event is free and open to the public. Sweet treats will provided by From Scratch.
