Sept. 23 – PARTY OF ONE book signing and art exhibit with Elizabeth Haidle

Friday, September 23 join artist Elizabeth Haidle for a book signing and art exhibit for Party of One. The first 10 books sold will include an original life drawing sketch. Plus riso printed bookmarks! Come by the event early at 4pm and do some life drawings with Elizabeth at the Lloyd Center ice skating rink.

Offering keen and thoughtful insight into the creative process, this collection of lush figurative watercolor drawings is a fascinating glimpse into the whimsical mind of one of the most imaginative illustrators working today.

For the past five plus years, Portland-based artist Elizabeth Haidle has attended figure drawing sessions and honed her illustration skills. Party of One gathers together a medley of her most dazzling watercolor creations from this period. Delightful to look at, these lushly painted drawings also uncover the nuances of expression and gesture and evoke the personalities behind the poses. In addition to the gorgeous art, this collection offers insights into the creative process. Each tableaux of painted figures is accompanied by commentary from the artist herself — fresh, philosophical, funny, thought provoking, and brief — like the musings of David Shrigley.

Party of One is part of the Fantagraphics Underground imprint.
