Stopped by Pat Moriarity’s show in the ‘Couv last night and snagged a copy of his new Totems art book, published by Noreah/Brownfield. It’s hot off the press. In fact, this is the first copy sold from a limited edition printing.
Among many other works on display, Pat posted ~10 pages of his graphic novel WIP.
