This Saturday, & Pens will be releasing it’s latest publication Paranoid Tiers by Griffin McPartland and Paul Urich in San Francisco at NoWheresVille Gallery.
Paranoid Tiers is a collaborative effort between the two artists. Urich would draw a picture and mail it to McPartland to add random text to the page. He added random placements of words, comical social commentary, and other times a dark and emotional outpourings and paired them with Urich’s take on traditional tattoo art. As a whole, the zine takes on a narrative of two human lives lived and a documents a conversation between friends. It’s truly fantastic. The publication contains 67 exchanges of words and imagery that were passed back and forth between the two.
Zines have been printed in an edition 150 copies and will be available at the opening and online (and also at our spots in LA and Needles & Pens in SF).
