Rippin Art Show

When: Fri., April 18, 6-10 p.m. 2014

Philly-based illustrator Thom Lessner isn’t shy with his pen. His artwork depicts human beings and other creatures in a raw, cartoon-like fashion. He often pursues rock ’n’ roll stars and pop icons as material for his drawings, which may or may not be flattering to those being portrayed. His work has a parody feel, and has been featured in magazines like Revolver, Rolling Stone, London-based Dazed and Confused, Philadelphia Magazine and The Metro. It seems like Lessner is picking fun, but these aren’t comic strips — though we’d totally read them if they were. Black Sheep Skate Shop’s upcoming Rippin Art Show will showcase Lessner’s drawings and screen prints. Also check out local artist Jason Waters’ prints, drawings, paintings and stickers. Food trucks and music from DJ Animate, too. Reception on April 18, 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. (Anita Overcash)

Price: Free admission
