acrylic/graphite/charcoal on panel
"Get In If You Want To Live." Paper Darts Press will raffle off the painting at the book release party TONIGHT- 10/15/11. (Party is FREE, raffle tickets are $2 a pop!)
Party info here.
Order the book here.
About the book:
"...each story in the collection will be accompanied by a specially curated illustration from hand-selected local and international artists, including Jennifer Davis, Ruben Ireland, and Andres Guzman among others. The entire book will be designed using the eye-popping aesthetic and inventive graphics that Paper Darts Magazine is known for."
"The Twin Cities’ newest, boundary-breaking publishing house, PAPER DARTS PRESS, announces its debut project. Get In If You Want To Live is a collection of 19 fiction short-shorts by Minneapolis writer John Jodzio, author of 2010’s If You Lived Here You’d Already Be Home. Jodzio is a past recipient of the Loft-McKnight Fellowship award and his work has been featured in numerous publications, including McSweeney’s, Opium, and Minnesota Monthly.
From bears hooked on sex outside the species, to hookers hooked on a neighbor’s bomb chili recipe, Jodzio shanghais readers in the course of only a few pages and sucks them into 19 different gonzo worlds populated by intensely unapologetic characters." (via Paperdarts.com)

Holly, from Decor8, has made a lovely post about my recent show with Amy Rice, "Delightful 3".
Amy Rice and me- photo by Holly Becker via Decor8.com
"From her color palettes (love her shots of black and neon pink!) to her quirky characters who display a range of emotions from melancholy to fear, timidness to hopeful, I find her work touching, engaging, meaningful and altogether mesmerizing. Amy Rice is another amazing talent, also based in MN, so to have a chance to meet them both in one evening was a total moment for me. Here they are, such a lovely duo."
