The Brooklyn-based artist recently dropped off a batch of new prints at the Desert Island Comic shop on Metropolitan and Lorimer, though what he is best known for is his sculptures, which happen to look like surrealist versions of Muppets, Star Wars critters, even mystic beings from Brian Froud’s...

New Yorkers not aware of Peter B. Jones should really change that… asap. Among Iroquois and other Native American cultures, Jones is a household name. To the rest of us, his work remains largely unknown. Raised on a reservation in Onondaga, NY, the artist came of age in the late 1960s and used pop art...
