Craig Yoe and Patrick McDonnell appear on August 4th from 7:00PM – 8:00PM!
Krazy Kat & The Art of George Herriman by Craig Yoe celebrates over one hundred years of one of the most beloved and innovative comic strips of all time and its creator. This unique collection of rare, unpublished art, essays, memorabilia and biogrpahy-the majority reprinted here for the first time-highlights the career of the first genius of comics, George Herriman, and his iconic creations.
Craig Yoe runs the New York design firm YOE! Studio with Clizia Gussoni. Eisner award-winner Yoe has been called the “Indiana Jones of comics” by Vice magazine and a “twisted archivist of the ridiculous and the sublime.” Publishers Weekly called his work “brilliant.” Yoe is the author of more than 30 books, including The Art of Mickey Mouse and Secret Identity: The Fetish Art of Superman’s Co-creator Joe Shuster.
Cartoonist and author Patrick McDonnell, creator of the award-winning MUTTS comic strip and Me… Jane, a nonfiction children’s book about a young Jane Goodall and how she followed her passion to become one of the world’s most inspiring women, will join Craig on the Strand Stage.
