In the Big Apple? See Jenna Citrus Release Party at Quimby’s Bookstore NYC 4/8

Quimby’s Bookstore NYC is at 536 Metropolitan Ave, Brooklyn, (718) 384-1215. @quimbysnyc

Jenna Citrus is traveling to Quimby’s in Brooklyn, New York to release two new books: The Hand Painting Series and An Opened Book End on Sat, April 8th at 2pm.

According to the artist:

“The Hand Painting Series showcases a selection of the best images from my hand paintings. I worked with a variety of individuals to create three finished pieces: a photograph of their hand, a completed 11×14 canvas painting, then a digitally created pattern for use on clothing or other surface design pieces. These images are exhibited in this full color book with over 40 images from the series.”


An Opened Book End weaves a fabric of dreamlike streams into fragmented realities. Pursuing memories from the past and turning experience into verse, Jenna Citrus recounts her years from 15 to 22. Allusive references are made to relationships, trust, heartbreak, family, technology, women, art, culture, creativity, society, inner being, sexuality, and culture’s influence on current existence through internal thought and reflection.

Jenna Citrus has always been a hands-on type of painter. When she first started creating her painted designs in 2007, she rarely used brushes. Instead she used her fingers, palms, and sometimes pallet knives. As her work progressed, she found herself pulled toward splattering paint from the paint that pooled in the palm of her hands, creating mixes of colors that were pure and bold. Citrus has worked in a variety of media including graphic art, photography, and portraiture. Jenna wanted to find a way to incorporate the process of how the hands could sometimes be more of a masterpiece than the canvas they were working on. She created a series of images utilizing hands as her canvas. From the age of 10, Jenna enjoyed writing short stories, around 14 her interests shifted to poetry and painting, in a few years she added photography to her craft. She graduated from the University of Southern Indiana in 2015 then was awarded the Efroymson Bridge Year Fellowship in 2016. She is currently working as a full time creator.

New Stuff This Week

2016 Dollhouse Gig Posters (Starshaped Press) $85.00 – Tiny gig posters for dollhouses! The idea stems from Starshaped Press wanting to create tiny works of art from the smallest pieces in their metal type collection as well as their longtime passion for music. Operating like an old school record club, subscribers received a new 2×3″ poster each month for a year featuring a different musical style (12 in all). Here’s the reel-shaped box which houses all of the posters.
But wait… there’s more! It includes a flexi disk from John and Mark of The Coctails, temp tatts from Dan Grzeca, and a retro futuristic letterpress print from P22 Analog!

RIP Underground Comics Legend Jay Lynch

Quimby’s gives best wishes to the survivors, fans, friends and family of underground comics legend Jay Lynch, who passed away at age 72. His legacy includes such titles as Bijou Funnies, Nard ‘n’ Pat, Phoebe & the Pigeon People, Arcade, as well as illustration for Wacky Packages and Garbage Pail Kids, but he also did illustrations for The Realist, as he reminisced about in the zine we published about Quimby’s (Ever Evolving Bastion of Freakdom: A Quimby’s Bookstore History In Words and Pictures):

“Paul Krassner, who founded The Realist in 1958, was doing a book signing in the store. I stopped by to say hello, since I did many a cartoon for The Realist in the early 60s. I saw Paul staring in awe at the shelves stacked with every “alternative” publication that exists. All of these zines in one place isn’t something that you see every day-and Krassner was nonplussed at the sight. “What have we begat?” he said to me in a concerned tone.”

Jay’s presence at signings at Quimby’s, as well as his contribution to the world of underground comics and his legacy as contributor to the origins of the store will be missed.
