I’m presenting my racetrack sketches and art for OUT OF LUCK at Bluestockings Bookstore in Manhattan this coming Monday evening at 7 pm. Please join me as I discuss and show my work, including never seen before sketches! Here’s the description and info on the event:
“Winners, Losers and Voyeurs: Drawing at the Race Track”
172 Allen Street
Monday June 17th; 7 PM
At the 48th meeting of the New York Comics & Picture-story Symposium, Brooklyn-based artist Jen Ferguson takes us to the most exotic of local places, Aqueduct and Belmont race track, to observe, draw, and occasionally blend in with the railbirds and speculators who congregate there. In this talk she will discuss her working style, drawing at the track, and the inspiration that setting has provided. She will also present drawings from her book “Railbirds: My Life at the Track” and “Out of Luck,” based on HBO’s series LUCK which she currently illustrates.
