Illustrations by Mooshe Nickerson.
Cartoonist and animator Mooshe Nickerson is exhibiting her work WHAT ELSE ARE GIRLFRIENDS FOR? is a series of illustrations from 2010-2014, at the Green Rock Tavern in Port Richmond, Philadelphia. The exhibit is up all month and the reception is this Saturday, February 1st, 2014 starting at 7pm. She describes her work as “exploiting the bizarre & intimate interactions between women through strange and distroted pin-up drawings. From hair dye parties to beach blanket bingos, women showcase ambivilent levels of comfort and shame among other women, blurring a line between girlfriends and girlfriends for the casual”. Mooshe just so happens to be the very next guest on the Comix Gab podcast! Go figure! I’m looking forward to seeing her and her art at the reception, chow down on some pierogies, drink some Philly brews, and reveal our interview on the Comix Gab podcast in two weeks.
Here is the address:
