Bill Carman at Brumfield’s in Boise

Bill Carman
Like that irresistibly alliterative title, Bill Carman’s work seems to have bounced out of his imagination fully formed, too wonderfully refined in its execution to be so delightfully off-kilter in its subjects.

After solo shows in New York and California, Carman’s characters, beasts and undefinable others — rendered in pen and ink, watercolor, acrylic and mixed media — will be on display at Brumfield’s Gallery in Carman’s home town of Boise, Idaho from March 16, to April 28, 2013.

The gallery has a slideshow preview of a few of the pieces in the show, many of which are new and have not been exhibited previously. There is a pubic opening this Saturday, March 16, from 6-9pm.

You can see more of Carman’s work on his blog, and in his Flickr galleries of paintings, drawings, book illustration and editorial illustration.

    I’ve been a fan of his work for a long time, wish I could see the show.
    I can never seem to get through all his work in one sitting as I usually become enraptured by a handful and get stuck in one of those major time sinks.
    Looking back at your previous posts, the one from 2008 mentioned some Altoids tins he painted but I could not find them.
    Are they still online anywhere?
