Topher MacDonald was our featured artist this past Sunday for our celebration of THE FOOL – Topher’s an illustrator and designer living in Brooklyn. We first met Topher when he moved to NYC from Wisconsin about 3 years ago and he volunteered to help out with an event. He’s made his way in the big city and makes his living as an illustrator and designer. For THE FOOL, Topher printed out copies of his sketchbook – where he doodles, dreams, plans, schemes, makes fun and trips. I love the different worlds he goes – lots of outer space, but also drunk brunch with friends. Topher’s work draws on the legacy of comic books, superheroes, with a taste of R. Crumb. He said this really great thing about something he came across while looking into the idea of THE FOOL – he said – and I’m paraphrasing – the fool retains his child like connection to the inner workings of the world. How great is that?
