Lasky art exhibit opens Oct. 26 in Preus Library

Sept. 30, 2009

“Cartoons by David Lasky,” an art show of comics and cartoon art by David Lasky, will be displayed Oct. 26 – Dec. 11 in Preus Library.

The exhibit is open to the public with no charge for admission. 

“Cartoons by David Lasky” is composed of various Lasky works, including alternative comics and other other illustrations including his “boom boom” comics, “Ulysses” comics and assorted visual art works, including several about popular music history.

The alternative works are influenced by the comic movement of the late 1960s and early 1970s and are a departure from the mainstream superhero movement popularized in the early days of comics.   

Lasky holds the bachelor’s degree from William and Mary University.

In 1993 Lasky was awarded an Xeric Grant, gaining him notoriety and magazine space in “Pulse.” He created a series of comics called “Urban Hipster” and “No Ordinary Flu” for the King County Department of Health.

Lasky is working on his first full-length graphic novel based on the story of the Carter Family country group.
