    OR – Wuvable Oaf Signing

    wuvable-oaf-tourPress Release:

    Celebrate the release of the WUVABLE OAF HC on June 4th from 6-8 PM with an art exhibit and book signing with Ed Luce.

    Like Sex and the City but with adorable, ex-wrestler hairy gay men (or bears), Wuvable Oaf is Luce’s debut graphic novel. This book fills a romance comics hole by portraying a likeable gay male character that is both fully realized and relatable. Mostly playful, but sometimes serious, Wuvable Oaf captures the levity of loneliness. Luce delivers a rom-com that would leave Zack Galifianakis and Zooey Deschanel feuding over who got to play Oaf in a hypothetical movie adaptation.

    Oaf is a large, hirsute, scary-looking ex-wrestler who lives in San Francisco with his adorable kitties, and listens to a lot of Morrissey. The book follows Oaf’s search for love in the big city, especially his pursuit of Eiffel, the lead singer of the black metal/queercore/progressive disco grindcore band Ejaculoid. Luce weaves friends, associates, enemies, ex-lovers, and the pasts of both men into the story of their courtship. Like Scott Pilgrim, Love and Rockets, and Archie, Wuvable Oaf explores the joys and pains of romantic conquests, set against the backdrop of the San Francisco scene. After decades of comics about boy-loves-girl, Luce finally gives readers of all orientations some insight into man-loves-man. Oaf’s silly, sweet, and sometimes sexy stories will win over everyone’s heart.

    Customers who buy the book get a free signed Bookplate designed by Ed Luce especially for this event!

Enjoy beer by the local brew heroes at Gigantic while perusing prints and original work from our esteemed special guests:

    DANIEL CLOWES
    one of the great voices of contemporary American literature and a legendary artist and draftsman. Clowes is the creator of Eightball, an anthology of personal work that consistently raised the bar of comics art and literature over its impressive 17–year run. It was in these pages that many of Clowes’ graphic novels were first serialized, including Like a Velvet Glove Cast in Iron, David Boring, and Ghost World, which was adapted to film by Terry Zwigoff in 2001 with an Academy Award nominated screenplay by Clowes. Linework NW is extraordinarily honored to be hosting the official world premiere of The Complete Eightball 1–18 (Fantagraphics Books) at our festival.

    LISA HANAWALT
    a prolific cartoonist and illustrator known for her colorful and hilarious work. A Co-Producer and Production Designer of Netflix’s Bojack Horseman, Hanawalt is also a frequent contributor to publications such as The Believer, Lucky Peach magazine, and The New York Times, and the author of the collection My Dirty Dumb Eyes (Drawn and Quarterly). A prolific and wide-ranging creator, Hanawalt also serves as co-host of the bi-weekly podcast Baby Geniuses with comedian Emily Heller. Lisa Hanawalt will make you blush, through either the sheer beauty of her craft, or her deft ability to tell dirty jokes.

    JAY HOWELL
    an animator, illustrator, and character designer whose work can be seen everywhere from Nickelodeon’s Sanjay and Craig (where Howell serves as Executive Producer, Co-Creator, and Art Director) and Fox’s Bob’s Burgers to fine art galleries such as Slow Culture and FFDG. Well known for his distinctive drawings of spindly-legged punks, dogs, skateboards, and cool times, Howell is also the creator and animator of the Classic Tales series of interviews from Vans. With a body of work that evokes both simple beauty and thrashing chaos, Jay Howell is a champion to professional artists and those who doodle in the margins of notebooks alike.

    LISA CONGDON
    a fine artist, author, and illustrator who well-known for her colorful abstract paintings, intricate line drawings, and hand lettering. A self-described “late bloomer,” Congdon began her artistic career after working for years as an educator and has achieved extraordinary success, working with an array of high-profile clients including MoMA, Martha Stewart Living, Chronicle Books, and the Obama campaign. Lisa is also the author of many books, including Art, Inc; Whatever You Are, Be a Good One; Twenty Ways to Draw a Tulip, and A Collection a Day. Her latest book, Fortune Favors the Brave (Chronicle) will be released later this year. Congdon’s background as an educator continues to influence her artistic practice. She has made a name for herself as a guide and inspiration to those following their passion and pursuing a career in art.
