➳ Electric Works
For one night only, Paul Madonna invites fans of his series All Over Coffee to celebrate the release of his second book, Everything Is Its Own Reward, at an exhibition of more than two-dozen original drawings at Electric Works in San Francisco. Paul will be signing books in the gallery, surrounded by his highly rendered pen & ink drawings that range in size from 9x12 to 30x40 inches. The evening commemorates over 500 published All Over Coffee strips and seven years in the San Francisco Chronicle, and will be the launch of a national book tour, which includes events in the Bay Area, Los Angeles, Washington DC, New York and Chicago.
Drawing on site from a portable stool, Madonna’s work continues to delight, confound and inspire readers from all over the world. Starting in his hometown of San Francisco and traveling to more than 15 cities such as Paris, Rome, Buenos Aires and Tokyo, Paul Madonna offers his second body of drawings and writings. This stunning new collection, a testament to the artist and storyteller's careful observation of both the external and internal worlds, outdoes the masterful performance of his first book, All Over Coffee, offering an even richer catalogue of pen-and-ink cityscapes, short stories, conversations and thoughts. Entertaining and moving, gorgeous to look at, Madonna's work remains unique and unclassifiable. This full-color, hardbound edition comes complete with a removable poster.
