Artists and long time buddies the Ming Donkey, Jason Baldwin and Herbert Rieth
are inspired by the underground comic book scene by way of Alabama, Vermont and Mississippi.
DONKEY found himself immersed in the art scene his entire life with an artist father who encouraged him to paint, draw and design on a regular basis. Check out this awesome stop animation he did of his little worker bees at play
Baldwin found his start with skateboard designs and comic books, and today prints from Baldwin’s collection can be found at The University of Southern Indiana, and the Laurel Arts League, just to name a few. His pieces in the show are based on childhood stories, and each painting portrays a moment in time suspended separately from his past and present self.
Herb Reith stumbled into the art world by way of his punk rock band, and today expresses himself with uniquely painted fabric, as well as teaching art at the University of Alabama.
