2013 Stumptown Comics Fest Guest Profile - Dash Shaw

Shaw_Portrait.jpgWith the Stumptown Comics Fest fast approaching, it's time to double-up on our guest profiles, lest we run out of time before we run out of awesome guests. With that in mind, here is part-two and the talented Dash Shaw.

Dash Shaw is a cartoonist and animator in Brooklyn, New York. His graphic novel "New School" comes out in April, 2013, from Fantagraphics Books. His recent books include Bodyworld and Bottomless Belly Button. His animated works include "Wheel of Fortune and the ifc series "The Unclothed Man in the 35th Century AD." In 2008 Diego Cortez curated "Bottomless", an exhibition of Shaw's original drawings, storyboards, color background overlays and a new video animation, for Duke University's John Hope Franklin Center. Shaw is currently working on an animated feature produced by John Cameron Mitchell ("Hedwig and the Angry Inch") and his "Shortbus" producer Howard Gertler ("How to Survive a Plague").
