Blab! Blab! Blab! at the Society of Illustrators

Posted by jtebeau on April 5, 2010

Charles Burns, Daniel Clowes, Drew Friedman, Chris Wareearlier in their careers these esteemed cartoonists were all featured in the gutsy BLAB! periodical, founded in Chicago back in 1986 by graphic designer Monte Beauchamp. The striking little anthology is getting its due right now through May 1 at New York’s Society of Illustrators gallery (free of charge) at 128 E. 63rd Street (between Park and Lexington Avenues).

And if you’ve never been there, peek into the Society of Illustrators club house. Another gem in New York’s treasure chest of secret places. Maybe you can check out the original Norman Rockwell upstairs….
