Jonny Negron’s new book, simply titled Negron, has been creating a lot of recent, much-deserved buzz for it’s lascivious drawings that would make Robert Crumb proud. Here’s what PictureBox has to say about the book:
An acclaimed “master of voluptuousness” in the tradition of Robert Crumb and Tom of Finland, his highly erotic drawings occupy a space that draws from fashion drawings, video games, manga, and street art.Negron is his first book and explores the ample proportions of his vision. It features all-new drawings and comics. This is a guide to his brave new world, produced in as lush a package as the women in his work: printed on high-gloss paper, this dust-jacketed paperback is an art object unto itself.
If you’re in the Portland area you can meet Jonny along with Sammy Harkham at a book release party at Floating World. The two will end their tour at Domy Books in Austin on Oct. 24th. You can also purchase Negron from the PictureBox website.
