this effort, which I had nothing to do with and, which, therefore, is all the more amazing to me.
Writes, Sally Brock, of the gallery:
"I found this artist from the 700 hoboes show based on your recording- (via boingboing.net) contacted her and gave her a show:
On display through July at Fancy + Pants
of San Francisco
Her newest series of paintings feature hobos and their sad little daughters [sad b/c daddy is a hobo] caught up in various tear-jerking scenarios -like gaining weight, sitting by the phone, looking forlornly at be-daddied pairs at the amusement park, etc. Inspired by the John Hodgman recording of 700 Hobo Names
Opening reception Saturday July 8, 7-9 p.m. Hobo style refreshments will be served"
Apparently, you can also buy underpants at this very gallery, or near it.
