Vaughan & Chiang's "Paper Girls" Builds a Familiar Yet Disconcerting World
Beginning on December 18, 2010, the Cartoon Art Museum’s ongoing Small Press Spotlight will feature the art of Peter S. Conrad.
Peter Conrad is a writer and artist from the East Coast, who has spent fifteen years in the Bay Area looking for decent pizza. He got his start doing cartoons for a music magazine in Poughkeepsie, and from there moved up to self-publishing his mini-comic Attempted Not Known. The first several issues were photocopied and stapled, but Attempted Not Known has evolved into what Conrad calls comic/objects: the last three have been a pack of cigarettes containing 20 tiny comics about smoking, a Comics Cube that you can twist and turn to create new stories, and a 72-page graphic novel in the form of a cassette mix tape.
Now a veteran of many newspapers, magazines, and anthologies, Conrad focuses on Attempted Not Known and his journal strip Vidrio Cafe, which chronicles the day-to-day life of an artist with a day job. You can see Conrad's work at www.attemptednotknown.com and www.vidriocafe.com.
