All Over Coffee (Paul Madonna).

One of my favorite artists, Paul Madonna, is presenting next week his second collection of All Over Coffee illustrations. You might know him, as his exquisite drawings appear every week in the San Francisco Chronicle. Paul's drawings used to depict mainly the beautiful city of San Francisco but have moved on to take us around the country and the world looking for the quotidian.

My favorite part about his art is that his drawings include text, sometimes hidden, that make the scenes deeply humane and somehow familiar. They are a window to someone's soul and individual perspective and remind me of Robert Swartwood's Hint Fiction (I referred to it here).

The release party for Paul's new All Over Coffee book: Everything is its own reward will be on Friday, April 29th, at 7 pm at Electric Works Gallery in San Francisco.
Hope to see you there!
