ERIK PARKER

No one really expects much from the summer group show here in NYC. Though, as always, several manage to stand out from the fold and satiate non-traveling locals until the limelight returns post-Labor Day. The biggie this summer is without a doubt “What Nerve!

For many decades, comics, posters, big eye prints, and hot rod art were relegated to the status of ephemeral art. Even worse were those garish deity prints sold in shops hawking cheap Indian and Nepalese wares. No more.

CASSEY KUO

I met Cassey Kuo at the MoCCA Fest this past April, where she shared a table with a handful of other upstarts in the illustration biz. Kuo sold me two square prints, which looked like animation cells from some lost 1950s Disney film, though, in fact, neither were. They weren’t, so says the artist, in service...
