and now my turn

Anders is featured this week in both the Chicago Reader and the Chicago Tribune. The Reader digs deep into the story behind the work, presenting a moving portrait of Anders and his life in recent years.

The Tribune looks at his recent books, declaring of Dogs and Water: "Not much is explained -- but the emotional impact of the book is staggering. It's as if a time-release kind of loneliness has been sewn into the binding and seeps out on the page whenever it wants to."

and of Don't Go Where I Can't Follow:"It's a hodgepodge of love and loss, as if somebody had dumped out a drawer marked 'Sorrow' onto the kitchen floor, looked at it and then added the contents of a drawer marked 'Joy.'"

Big Questions #10 will be shipping to stores in November, and debuting at SPX Oct. 12-13 in Bethesda, MD (with Anders in attendance.) But, prior to that, he'll be traveling to Denmark, where his work is featured as part of the COMIX exhibition at Kunsthallen Brandts. I can't read what it says, but I'd recognize that Shrigley drawing anywhere. Seems like the show will be awesome, so if you happen to be in Denmark between Sept. 22 and Jan. 6 check it out.
