Introductions and Ahoy

I'm setting this blog up for the upcoming show and will be posting about the artists participating and the process of getting the show together and up.  I'll write a bit more about everyone (including The Bridge) in the coming days but as a quick intro, here's who is participating:

Café Royal Books with Craig Atkinson (Southport, UK)
Craig who runs Café Royal, a zine and art books publishing and distribution company. Craig will be showing some original work along with lots and lots of pages from lots and lots of artists who have published in his Café Royal magazine.

Oliver has published a comics/art book series “Trains are….Mint” along with other books, prints and drawings.

Franklin Einspruch (Boston, USA)
Franklin is a painter, writer and comics-maker and has published online a great series of poem-comics, “The Moon Fell On Me.”

Little Paper Planes (San Francisco, USA)

Opuntia Books with André Lemos (Lisbon, Portugal)
Lemos publishes his own and other artists work.  André was in a show a couple years ago here in Charlottesville and painted a mural on the side of The Bridge (he also drew tons with my kids).
