New Interview With John Seabury

John (sometimes known as Pynoman) is a local Bay Area artist who has shown with Eclectix a number of times. A skilled artist, graphic designer and comic illustrator, he is also a skilled musician, playing formerly with his band Psycotic Pineapple and today with The Deep. He has a fantastic wealth of gig posters he’s done over the years, as well as larger fine art silkscreens. Some of my favorite works are included in his two books,  his journals of collected black and white doodles and drawings - just chock full of wonderful characters, pineapples, curves, shapes and metamorphosis.

If you're nearby or want to go, below is the info. Great looking building, not to mention it's chock full of the surreal master's art - I am marking it down for my next visit to Florida!
