**This is the press release for my residency event at the San Francisco Cartoon Art Museum**
On September 3rd, from 2 - 5:30pm local artist Ben Collison will be a Cartoon Art Museum Cartoonist-in-Residence. Come watch him illustrate with coffee and ink. He will be talking about his latest Kickstarter project "She had Love on Her Tongue & Death in Her Eye" a coffee art book. There will be a free raffle with comics, stickers, and t-shirts as prizes.
Collison will be demonstrating how he creates art with ink and coffee; smearing, smudging, and splattering coffee on ink until the illustration is complete. Not to be confused with watercolor, this coffee art stays grounded in the gritty nature of coffee stains and splatter.
Ben’s inspiration for his 100-page hard cover coffee art book is tough female rockstars. More info about Ben's work and Kickstarter is at BenCollison.com.
