tmf

Press Release:

Join us on Saturday, March 8, at Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery as we celebrate the publication of Tony Millionaire‘s Sock Monkey Treasury with an art exhibition, book signing, and music concert.

Tony Millionaire’s Sock Monkey is one of the great all-ages comics of the new millennium. The precocious sock monkey Uncle Gabby and his innocent pal Mr. Crow are the heroes of this endearing new collection. Millionaire will also sign copies of his latest strip collection Green Eggs and Maakies, blending vaudeville-style humor and a breathtakingly beautiful line that recalls the glory days of the American comic strip.

The festive show on Saturday, March 8, from 6:00 to 9:00 PM features 15 original Millionaire drawings and music by Ashley Eriksson. As a child in Los Angeles, Eriksson sang on the Ren and Stimpy Christmas Album; as an adult she sings “Island Song,” the closing credits for Cartoon Network’s cult-sensation Adventure Time. On Saturday she’ll sing from her recent K Records release Colours.

This event coincides with the lively Georgetown Art Attack featuring visual and performing arts presentations throughout the historic district. Don’t miss this chance to meet one of the truly extraordinary artists of our time.

Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery is located at 1201 S. Vale Street, just minutes south of downtown Seattle. Open daily 11:30 to 8:00 PM, Sundays until 5:00 PM. Phone 206.658.0110.
