George will be premiering a live, talk show-formatted project called George’s Lovely Variety. Think of it as a variety store of conversation with artists and other fascinating people. I’m a little nervous and super excited and really hoping to pack the house with friendly faces, so please do come cheer us on! I’m hosting it on The Living Stage, right around the corner from Wayfarers headquarters at the Hotel RL on Broadway. They've got drinks and snacks and a cozy vibe.
ARTIST AND IMPRESARIO GEORGE FERRANDI WILL BE CHATTING WITH THESE COMICS-INFLUENCED ARTISTS ABOUT THEIR AMAZING WORK AND THEIR BROOKLYN-BASED LIVES:
*Hiroki Otsuka (painter, internationally recognized manga artist, distributor of sweets when you most need them)
*Reid Kikuo Johnson (illustrator, cartoonist, cover illustrator for the New Yorker, Grand Master of the George Foreman grill)
*Caroline Paquita (artist, zine maker, operator of Pegacorn Press, magical woo-woo warrior)
With musical companionship by
