“These men should be judged on their artistic merit, not their hotness. What Ms. Campbell has done here is disgraceful.”
— Jillian Tamaki, co-author of Skim and This One Summer and author of SuperMutant Magic Academy
Come one, come all, to an amazing event for Jessica Campbell’s new book release from Koyama Press, Hot Or Not: 20th Century Male Artists. While the history of 20th-century art is filled-to-overflowing with dudes, no one has ever judged the most important thing: Are these guys fuckable or not? Luckily, Jessica Campbell is up to the task, and Hot Or Not is now the definitive resource for male artist boneability, a necessary addition to the critical cannon.
Come out for a fun, at least slightly tongue-in-cheek evening as Jessica walks us through the book and its creation. Final location is to be determined, but there’ll be drinks and fun, and you might even want to come dressed as your favourite artist, I mean, Hallowe’en will be a few days later.
Picasso? More like Picasso-so. See you on the 28th.
HOT OR NOT: 20th Century Male Artists, is published by Koyama Press and available now at The Beguiling and Page & Panel, among other great stores. It features a scratch-off cover so you can see the wieners of the fellas depicted on it.
