Judy and I had a great time at Piedmont Park’s Dogwood Festival. We were looking for something great and found it. There was an endlessa array of arts, crafts, food, drink, and music. Click to see our post, “Art in the Park.” Our favorite display, besides Kyle Spears’ photography, was the off-kilter gouache art by Greg Stones.
Greg was selling gouache prints; his stuff is offbeat and hilarious, with a sci-fi, Far Side look. He’s also published a book, Zombies Hate Stuff, and he was selling one about every two minutes. We absolutely had to buy a copy. Zombies Hate Stuff is published by Chronicle Books, but his first two were self-published. Scroll down for more pictures.
If you’re at Piedmont Park Sunday, at least get his book—a bargain at any price–and check out his prints, too. They’re funny as hell. (Scroll down for more pictures.)
From the book description:
Zombies hate clowns. They also hate hippies, not to mention zip-lines, penguins, moon penguins, nudists, weddings, sharing, and kittens. They really hate unicorns, and strangely don’t mind Canadians. Each colorful painting reveals an amusing and unexpected scene of zombie disgruntlement, cataloging the stuff that really riles up the walking dead.
If you can’t make it the festival (and you should), checkk out Greg’s website, The Zombie Penguin, where you can order a signed copy of the book.
