Tony Fitzpatrick spins magical tales from his own history and that of his beloved city via drawing-collages, vivid combinations of drawing, text and applied elements like matchbooks, postcards, gambling slips and ballgame stubs. In this gorgeous book, Fitzpatrick introduces the first set of drawing-collages as chapters in an ongoing project that is both personal diary and chronicle of Chicago. Includes 35 color plates.
Glenn Barr's faith challenged cherubs, morally bankrupt babes, and sizzling femme fatales have become iconic symbols of the lowbrow firmament.

This gift-sized volume comes hot on the heels of his anxiously awaited exhibition of new paintings, which debuts in June 2011 at La Luz de Jesus Gallery. A limited run will be made available during the exhibition, with a general release in the fall of 2011.
