Preview: Jay Howell “Come Down Easy” at Slow Culture ~ Opens November 14th

Jay Howell-Slow Culture-4x6

Jay Howell is an artist, creator of the TV show Sanjay and Craig, designer of the characters for Bob's Burgers, a dog lover, an enthusiastic person, and a Forest City Rocker. He told us all this in an exclusive interview conducted via his Twitter bio. He is not a member of the Championship 1988 Dodgers, but we made a baseball card for him (at the bottom) just in case that joke is still fresh.

Jay's new show at Slow Culture Gallery in Highland Park opens this Friday and should not be missed. Please enjoy this selection of preview images from the show...

"This show is about me thinking about going home and drawing while i'm at work, and also about me thinking about work while i'm at home drawing. I did a lot of drawings at meetings that I took home and made into art. I get so excited about what I learn from my day job and from the talented people I work with that I try to sneak out early and go home and draw...even though I draw for a living. Then I try to take stuff form my home studio and apply it to my cartoon. I'm trying to get high on productivity and come down easy.” -- Jay Howell
