Fantastic and Satirical Illustration and Cartooning
Thursday–Friday, 1:30-7:00 pm
Instructor present each day
Enrollment limited to 12 students
This workshop will cover how to conjure and appropriate imagery in the service of lampooning and skewering the much-deserved enemies of your "state" of mind—aka tweaking the system till it hurts. We will discuss artists including Bosch, Crumb, Goya, Grosz, and more—all who tried to lay waste to their enemies and demons. Drawing expertise can be beneficial but not necessary: a few caustic lines or collaged cut out images can cause significant collateral damage. Come one, come all...let your twisted mind be your guide.
“Done lotsa stuff whilst ‘slouchin' towards Bethlehem.’” In the 1960's and 70's Geiser wrote and drew Underground Comix in San Francisco and established a small publishing company. He did illustrations for magazines, from Rolling Stone to The New York Times. He also has had a lengthy career as an abstract painter and has shown his work internationally. He is currently living and working in East Hampton, NY. His studio is a stone’s throw from Jackson Pollock's studio and house—where he goes to pray each day.
