Matt Kish Book Release Event
Moby-Dick in Pictures: One Drawing for Every Page

Book signing and reception to follow

Tue, Oct 11, 2011 | 7:00PM
Wexner Center for the Arts

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.

Matt will discuss the origin and execution of his epic project, followed by a signing and reception in the Wexner Center Store.
