INTERVIEW: "Batgirl and the Birds of Prey" Hunt Rebirth's Oracle
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.
