Straight from the Illustration Inbox, we got this announcement from Alum Gareth Hinds:
Hi, everyone. Most of you aren’t local to Boston, but I wanted to let you know that my new graphic novel The Merchant of Venice came out June 10th. I’m having a launch party on June 21st — more details below. Let me know if you might be around, otherwise keep your eye out for the book in your local bookstore or on www.garethhinds.com 🙂
Saturday June 21st, 6:30-9:00 pm (I’ll do some sort of reading/demo/speech around 7:00-7:30) Porter Square Books (in the Porter Square shopping plaza next to Star Market – map) Open to the public; please bring friends!
There will be snacks, wine, and non-alcoholic beverages. There may be a late-dinner expedition afterward. There should be plenty of books on hand, which the friendly staff of the store will sell you, and I will happily sign and personalize.
This particular book was drawn largely from life, and most of the “cast” (i.e., my friends who posed for the characters) will be there, which should be a lot of fun.
RSVPs are not necessary, but would be much appreciated.
One other thing, as long as I’m self-promoting. I have an official blog now, so if you’d like to keep up with my doings, check http://www.garethhinds.com/blog/ (or if you’re on Livejournal, the username “garethhinds” will get you a feed of the same content).
If you’re in the Boston area, make sure you stop by and support Gareth on his fantastic new work!
