With Thanksgiving looming and scarcely a month before the white Republican Jesus tumbles minty clean and blue-eyed from his mother’s stinky surprise to insist that everybody on the planet blush at the same exact shit that he and his super uptight conservative dad blush at or else, the crowdfunding campaign to finish the ferociously wise yet foul-mouthed and nudity-riddled documentary by Pablo Bryant, Mr. Fish: Cartooning from the Deep End, has just been launched!
Go here to find out more details and mull over the tasty incentives to contribute. Unfortunately, the chance to watch me drink sea monkeys from your father’s rubber hip boot while standing in your mother’s tub in my underpants has been replaced with the chance to have dinner with me and the director. Apparently, there are PETA rules against consuming sea monkeys that are still alive and I don’t have a spatula small enough to comply with their bullshit rules. Onward! And dig the film!
Come all ye faithless! Where? To the world famous Art Center in Pasadena. Why? Because I will be there on Thursday the 13th to talk about my new book and to project images and ideas guaranteed to enlighten and nauseate and perturb. The event, unlike most of the others surrounding the promotion of this book – I’ve mostly been booked into university gigs for students and faculty – the Art Center event is open to the public, friends and foes alike! Here’s a link to the details. Dig it.
Here’s a link to the excerpt from my new book, WARNING! Graphic Content, published in this week’s Nation magazine. Dig it.
Have your IDs ready and your intolerance for dirty pictures and controversial ideas checked at the door for it’s time to step into the head of Mr. Fish, where filthy ideas meet deep insights and something like inspiring woe, discouraging indifference and gleeful nihilism are born!
After interviewing notorious brainiacs such as Art Spiegelman and Noam Chomsky and spending many months pouring over every kind of art, beginning with 40,000 year old cave paintings and ending with the most contemporary scribblings, Fish has written a book that explores the significance and insignificance of art as commentary. Find out what is right and wrong with the profession of political cartooning. Discover the truth about why our visual language is so much more adept than our verbal language at explaining and understanding the existential stuff and nonsense that elates and burdens us everyday. Have you ever wondered this: If Yoko Ono sat silently in the middle of a crowded auditorium in her underpants and everybody was there to see it, would she make any sense whatsoever? Or: What is a bogey ball and does it really need to be made out of real snot to be impactful?
Mr. Fish answers all these questions and more in his brand new eBook, WARNING: Graphic Content, now available for pre-order at a crazy-ass discounted price on Amazon. Dig it. (And feel free to contact the author regarding speaking events and signings: email@example.com)
