When:Sunday, September 18 3 pm (Children’s Book reading) 7:30 pm (bands)
Where: Tapp’s Art Center
When he left for the West Coast in 2008, cartoonist Tommy Bishop left his mark on Columbia via quirky album cover creations and his unique brand of almost otherwordly illustrations. After much encouragement he is finally releasing
his first book of drawings, and he’s starting simple — simply creepy, simply bizarre, simply strange. The Incredibly Strange ABCs by Tommy Bishop is a children’s book with illustrative art adults are going to both appreciate and get a kick out of sharing with their children.
Join us for a two-part book launch that has every member of the family covered.
At 3 pm, bring the little ones to Tapp’s Arts Center where they can (literally) sit at the artist’s feet as he reads to them with musical accompaniment, and then enjoy a cookie reception while Tommy signs copies of The Incredibly Strange ABCs.
Then return at 7 pm (sans children) for a launch party with performances from Boo Hag , Los Perdidos and Jackson Spells — a cash bar, snacks, and continued signing of The Incredibly Strange ABCs. $10 admission includes price of book, concert, and launch party.
