Matt Kish Book Release Event Moby-Dick in Pictures: One Drawing for Every Page
Moby-Dick in Pictures: One Drawing for Every Page
Columbus artist Matt Kish had an obsession: to create one drawing for every page of Herman Melville's Moby-Dick, which depicts perhaps the most obsessive character in American literature.
Working with 552-page Signet Classics paperback edition, Kish started drawing and began posting his images online as a personal blog in 2009. As the drawings accumulated, he realized he had the makings of a stunning book. A self-taught artist, Kish uses a variety of low-tech materials to create his work, often incorporating images and text from found papers to great effect.
Join us as Kish discusses the origin and execution of his epic project, followed by a signing and reception in the Wexner Center Store.
