Comicsgirl reports on "Mr. Mendoza’s Paintbrush/Trickster event at Busboys & Poets • 03.30.11"

Comicsgirl has written up last night's "Mr. Mendoza's Paintbrush/Trickster event at Busboys & Poets • 03.30.11".  I was quite taken with Christopher Cardinale's talk about how he visited Mexico and photographed the scenes that the author had described in his short story.

Editor Matt Dembicki also pointed out this blog post on Trickster that talks about how Peter Kuper did the initial cover for the book

The Picture Stories of Ben Katchor
Tuesday, March 29
7 p.m.
Members $12; Public $15
Hailed by The New York Times as "the most poetic, deeply layered artist ever to draw a comic strip," Ben Katchor has collected both a cult and mainstream following for his wry, perceptive, and slightly surreal comic strips of urban life. The author of The Jew of New York and Julius Knipl, Real Estate Photographer: The Beauty Supply District, Katchor's work has appeared in The New Yorker, The Forward, and Metropolis. The first cartoonist to receive a MacArthur Fellowship, Ben Katchor discusses his first book in more than 10 years, The Cardboard Valise (Random House, 2011)- the whimsical graphic novel which follows the intertwined lives of three characters who travel to the fantastical nation of Outer Canthus. A book signing follows the talk.
