It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of Jim Mahfood aka the mighty FOOD ONE. His career has the kind of arc to it that makes freelancers (especially cartoonists) salivate. He has cultivated a signature drawing and storytelling style that is equally at home in art galleries, advertising campaigns, corporate lifestyle re-branding efforts, comic shops, hip hop jams and cartoon stations. His new hardcover art book Visual Funk celebrates Food’s in-progress indie rock star career, and
will should impress even his critics
with the variety and volume of the body of work he has generated in 16 years in the game…
Dope. Obviously, you can get Visual Funk for cheap(er) via places like Amazon and TFAW, but FOOD ONE is offering lots of other fresh junk like the button packs and prints if you cop the dee-luxe packages at the JimMahfood[Dot]com shop. Do what you gotta do to get what you wanna get.
OH YEAH, BEFORE I FORGET: Jim mentioned that he is in prep for his "first ever solo show in LA on Nov. 15..." which sent me digging all over for more info, which I was unable to unearth. You can be sure I will let you know when I find out more, but I figured it was more than a rumor, since it came from Jim himself.
