Please join us for the launch of "Collier's Popular Press" by Hamilton cartoonist, David Collier.

David Collier is perhaps the premier living embodiment of this tradition of observational cartooning. He’s very conscious of this older tradition and has in particular been shaped by the work of J.R. Williams. Like Williams, Collier draws a roughhewn, gnarly line that wins us with its homespun honesty. Some of the drawings in this book, particular the landscape illustrations Collier did for the Globe and Mail, are simply marvelous as stand-alone works of art. What distinguishes these drawings is the quality of Collier’s eye, his ability to notice details which are expertly recreated by his textured cross-hatching.

This book collects Canadian cartoonist David Collier’s work published over the last 30 years in various publications such as: The National Post, The Nerve, The Globe and Mail, The Saskatoon Star Phoenix, Geist magazine, The Comics Journal, and many more. With new introductions by the artist himself and plenty of added ephemera, this is the volume that Collier fans have been waiting for.

Free Admission. Everyone Welcome.
