After a crazy week at the office, I spent Friday night at Champaign-Urbana’s own Krannert Art Museum (a place I’ve seen Owen perform at twice) watching the first ever on-the-road edition of the Chicago-based Show ‘n Tell Show.
A talk show with plenty of comedy, the Show ‘n Tell Show features local artists (graphic designers, photographers, painters, etc…) discussing their craft to three male interviewers — one of whom dresses in drag.
Although Jay Ryan (the original bassist for Braid who has made quite a name for himself designing concert posters) had to cancel at the last minute, on this night I was able to catch an appearance by Chris Strong.
In addition to talking about some of the work he’s done for high-profile corporate clients, he displayed a picture he took while in college that is very familiar to a lot of music fans. Check it out here.
