Sketch (Art) Work of Jim Rugg

Sketch (Art) Work of Jim Rugg

There’s endless power in the ballpoint pen over the sword.

Artist Jim Rugg illustrates just that at Echo Park’s iam8bit exhibit “Notebook Nerd.”  If you’d like to get transfixed over 50 masterful sketches on his canvas of choice — a spiral-bound notebook — you’re in for a treat.

“Helvetica vs. Arial” inspired an ontological diatribe on modern fonts and layout, while “Barbie Centerfold” captured every nuanced curve of the plasticine beauty of youth.

Creatively dubbed the “Swiss Army Knife of artists” by the partners of iam8bit gallery, irony and entertainment drip from every page of art.

    

Witness the magic during regular gallery hours:

THURSDAY 1-8PM
FRIDAY 1-9PM
SATURDAY 12-9PM
SUNDAY 12-6PM

The exhibit runs from now until June 24, 2012.
