Shepard Fairey Does Showtime’s Dexter

Shepard Fairey is known for his OBEY street art featuring such icons as Andre the Giant and Barack Obama. Now he’s been hired by Showtime to produce art based on their cult TV series “Dexter.”

Is teaming with the cable TV network a bit “corporate” for the underground artist? Or with a thriving business selling T-shirts and prints, is Shepard Fairey really that underground anymore?  Has he been embraced, to a degree, by the mainstream?

You’ll eventually be able to purchase the “OBEY Dexter” art on Showtime’s website.

Brooklyn Splendor: “Street Code” Webcomic

“Street Code” follows the exploits of a former Alphabet City resident who relocates to Brooklyn — and in the process falls down the proverbial rabbit’s hole.

Artist and writer Dean Haspiel brings the same sort of raw-but-funny slice of life vibe to “Street Code” that he contributed to Harvey Pekar’s “American Splendor.” The semi-autobiographical piece is will be hosted and serialized exclusively on the Zuda webcomic site starting on Friday July 18, but a six-page preview is now up on Pop Candy.

Bottomless Bellybutton “Graphic Novel Of The Year”

If you are in the market for a graphic novel — and may or may not dig capes and tights — you should check out Dash Shaw’s gargantuan “Bottomless Bellybutton” by Fantagraphics Press. New York Magazine named the book, about a family reunion and parents divorcing after 40 years of marriage, “graphic novel of the year”:

“…720 pages of knotty family drama, emotional teen angst, lyrical passages about nature, good jokes, bad parenting, architectural schematics, rudimentary codes, and explicit sex…”

The book is heavy — literally — but a page-turner. Best of all, unless she or he is offended by gentle frog-faced young men who masturbate in knitting, this is the perfect “starter” graphic novel to give your significant other.
