November at The Modbo: Greg Stones’ Rejected Illustrations

November at The Modbo: Greg Stones’ Rejected Illustrations

The Modbo gleefully presents November’s First Friday: “Rejected Illustrations” by Greg Stones– a collection of small, devious gouaches.  The opening reception is from 5:00 pm until 11 pm on Friday, November 1st. The show runs through Friday, November 22nd. In addition to the opening reception, the gallery is open on Friday evenings from 4-7 pm or by appointment.  The Modbo is located in the Arts Alley in downtown Colorado Springs at 17C E. Bijou. Find the stretch of Bijou that is between Cascade and Tejon, and go south down the alley. Street parking is available, but The Modbo recommends the lot on Cascade just north of Bijou, which is only $1 after 3 pm. The Modbo can be reached at themodbo@gmail.com, themodbo.com, or 633-4240.  Born in Glocester, Rhode Island where a man is a man, a woman is a woman, and babies are sent into the forest at the age of six months to be raised and educated by squirrels, Greg Stones eventually broke free and went to Bates College in Lewiston, Maine. While at school, he majored in Studio Art, learned to paint photo-realistically, and was the cartoonist for the school paper. Two years after graduating, he wasn’t getting very far painting pretty little landscapes, so he started adding UFOs, aliens, and flying people to his work. Then came the penguins and the zombies. And sock monkeys and garden gnomes. And any other random thing that would pop into his head while he was holding a paint brush.  His favorite thing about being an artist is getting to write and illustrate books. Chronicle Books has published six of his titles since 2012, and he recently created a humorous Star Wars book for Disney entitled 99 Stormtroopers Join the Empire. Check out more at https://the-zombie-penguin.myshopify.com/ About the Show, “Rejected Illustrations” In 2012, Greg Stones officially became a published author when Chronicle Books unleashed his book Zombies Hate Stuff on the world.  The success of this first title would lead to six more illustrated...

NOW that’s what I call art

$150

This art is a wonderful example of art from this period of art production. Some say its the best of those arts while others reserve judgement. First painted by world renowned art guy “Arty” it has since been aged like fine wine and had a fancy frame put around it to enhance its aesthetic assault on your taste.

Birds of a Feather

$90

Put together as a tribute for the great “hair de jur” of 1890 this piece features exquisite use of water color, crayon color, and sun color, truly displaying the mastery of the artist and his wide range of talents. The authors identity remains a mystery to this day but some say it was the work of a poor farm boy in the Mississippi Delta who learned to read by way of twig bundling.
