Making The Abyss (MoCCA show)

Making The Abyss
Drawings from BodyWorld, Bottomless Belly Button, animations and comic short stories by Dash Shaw.

Shaw's recent works (BodyWorld, The Unclothed Man, and Bottomless Belly Button) connect an interest with the human body, informed by figure drawing, with humorous character-driven narratives. This show displays his original art for these stories, which are often a combination of traditional crowquill and ink work with gaouche paints, acetate sheets, animation-style backgrounds, colored marker storyboards, and mixed media collages.
