FOOL MOON TOON By Jason Howe

OPENING RECEPTION
FRIDAY 1 OCTOBER 2010 6-9 PM

EXHIBITION RUNS TILL 14 OCTOBER

Returning from Sydney, fine artist Jason Howe conducts his 2nd solo
show at At Large Gallery Melbourne, bringing down his large portfolio
of over 200 sketches/drawings/doodles/characters/abstractions/ideas &
designs for his paintings.

As you ponder his bold, fluid and flowing marker line drawings you
will see through to the ballpoint pen scribbles, which are the
origins, ideas and lines that spark a sketch.
Influenced by cartoons & animation, hip hop, the graffiti art
characters of Vaughn Bode & Kenny Scharf and contemporary American
pop surrealists Greg Simpkins, Jeff Soto, Joe Ledbetter and Alex
Pardee his work will delight, humor, mess with your head & make your
mind wonder.

Drawn on a patchwork of recycled stickers, Jason breaks the
boundaries of the portrait/landscape style of his sketchbooks to
bring you a peak behind the scenes and behind the eyes of a
practicing, prolific post-pop hip-hop doodling surrealist.
As well as all original drawings being for sale, Jason will be
selling prints, hand painted shirts and caps and will also have a
showing of his experimental, colourful animated music clips.
