Huge thanks to 50watts – I am very excited and honored to have the work featured on this incredible blog :)
If you have not checked out the site before, definitely stick around and take a look at all the amazing archives.
A huge thanks to everyone who came out to the Struwwelpeter opening event at Quimby’s!
It was so much fun and I feel incredibly thankful to be around so many talented and amazing people! I didn’t have a chance to photograph so it’s a good thing that Liz at Quimby’s did :)
Many thanks to Betsy Mikel at The Chicagoist for this lovely opportunity to talk about the inspiration and process behind Struwwelpeter, screen printing, and community studios:
Chicago Illustrator Spotlight: Sanya Glisic
Trunk Show, 2010
10″ x 10″, screenprint, edition of 275
My piece for TEN x TEN, a new collaborative initiative developed by Spudnik Press and Homeroom Chicago
TEN x TEN develops the creative relationship between bands and printmakers beyond show posters. Visual artists invited a musician or band to join the project by recording an original song. Artists then created a 10 in x 10 in print inspired by the song they commissioned. The final collection features a suite of ten art prints and a ten song compilation of all new tracks.
For this project, I teamed up with the very talented Max Alexander (check out his site for more info and streaming). This image was inspired by a new track titled ‘Trunk Show’.
TEN x TEN visual artists:
Dee Clements, Kathleen Judge, Angee Lennard, Onsmith, Colin Palombi, Joey Potts, Grant Reynolds, Tom Smith, Sanya Glisic, Sonnenzimmer
Locks, The Late Model Races, Strictly Jug Nuts, Sky Event, Netherfriends, Nones, Christine Kick, Blasted Diplomats, Max Alexander, Jason Adasiewicz
All the prints and additional works by each artist are on display at LivingRoom Gallery (1530 West Superior Street, Chicago), through February 19th.
Come check out my finished Struwwelpeter project at Quimby’s in February!
The event will take place at 7 pm on Thursday, Feb 10th at Quimby’s Bookstore (1854 W North Ave, Chicago)
Visit Quimby’s website for more info
Quimby’s is one of my favorite places in Chicago. I’ve spent countless hours perusing their comics and wonderful, strange books. I am truly thankful to take part in this event and hope to see you there!
