For our Seattle readers, be sure to stop by and check out the boldly ironic paintings of one of Seattle’s favorite sons, Jeremy Eaton. He regularly graces the pages of our favorite alternative weekly, The Stranger. Jeremy Eaton is a published cartoonist, illustrator and painter living in Seattle. For his paintings he utilizes discarded plywood he finds in the shipyards of the city, applying acrylic paint in bold splashes of color and overlapping strokes of black in order to replicate the pulp printing of the comic books and magazines of his youth, often sublimating this with wider cultural themes and commentary. Be sure to visit Jeremy right here.

HOLIDAY ART SHOW & SALE! THIS SATURDAY IN SEATTLE!
This is my first showing since my successful exhibit at Cartoon Network Studios in Los Angeles. If you live in the Seattle area, or are visiting, please stop by this Saturday from 12 until 6 to see dozens of new paintings and illustrations plus many older unseen illustrations and comics pages, many under $25, a large grouping never before shown en masse in one place! Have a drink, enjoy some candy that’s really bad for you, meet Inky the studio cat, and say hello, it’ll be great to see you! Thanks to everyone who has taken an interest in my art this past year, I am very grateful for the support! My studio is at 521 NW 43rd St., just a block east of Hale’s Brewery at Leary Avenue. Look for the big blue building with the colorful storefront.
