Comic Artist of the Week: Edie Fake
This weeks Comic is by mega-talented artist/magician Edie Fake and is an installment of Edie’s comic series “clowns” which was exquisitely produced for Lumpen over the past several years. Edie is a queer artist and zinemaker living in Los Angeles. He was awarded one of Printed Matter’s first Awards for Artists and his book Gaylord Phoenix won the 2011 Ignatz Award for Outstanding Graphic Novel. His most recent publication, Memory Palaces, showcases drawings of brightly re-imagined building facades depicting vanished queer and feminist spaces from Chicago’s past as resources for the present. Edie recently spoke as part of the Chicago Architecture Biennial at the Chicago Cultural Center.
