New release: 'WELCOME TO FOREST ISLAND' by Bwana Spoons

Bwana Spoons has been making art, zines, comics, toys, shoes, t-shirts, cards, and pretty much anything you could imagine for a long long time.  He’s inspired a lot of us art-makers to take things to the next level.  It’s been a long time coming, but now he’s got a book “Welcome to Forest Island” published by Top Shelf.  Here’s a little sampling of what you’ll find in Forest Island, a monograph of paintings, comics, mushroom hunters, bagel eating vampire bats, exhibitions and illustration work from Bwana’s career.

If you’re in Portland check out the book release party at Grass Hut (the gallery that Bwana co-runs) Saturday night!

About Jay Babcock

I am the co-founder and editor of Arthur Magazine (2002-2008, 2012-13) and curator of the three Arthur music festival events (Arthurfest, ArthurBall, and Arthur Nights) (2005-6). Prior to that I was a district office staffer for Congressman Henry A. Waxman, a DJ at Silver Lake pirate radio station KBLT, a copy editor at Larry Flynt Publications, an editor at Mean magazine, and a freelance journalist contributing work to LAWeekly, Mojo, Los Angeles Times, Washington Post, Vibe, Rap Pages and many other print and online outlets. An extended piece I wrote on Fela Kuti was selected for the Da Capo Best Music Writing 2000 anthology. In 2006, I was one of five Angelenos listed in the Music section of Los Angeles Magazine's annual "Power" issue. In 2007-8, I produced a blog called "Nature Trumps," about the L.A. River. Today, I live a peaceful life in the rural wilderness of Joshua Tree, California, where I am a partner in JTHomesteader.com with Stephanie Smith.
