Comments Off on Gallery: John Williams, “Stuff They Don’t Tell You”

John_Williams_McUnion_600.jpgIn Artword Gallery from May 6 to 30: cartoonist and artist John Williams, with drawings from his on-going labour history series “From out of our Past: Stuff They Don’t Tell You“.
John_Williams_Porters_600.jpgHere is John’s description of his work: “I try to reach a general audience by illustrating an historic incident with a brush and ink drawing in the style of great comic strip pioneers like Alex Raymond and Leonard Starr. Then I scan it into a digital vector graphic with a brief text, an identifying “flag”, and a timeline that places the item in historical context. The panel is done in a high contrast black and white version and then digitally colourized for websites.”
Friday May 14, 7-10 pm: Artist present in the gallery during the James North Art Crawl.
