Publisher Spotlight: Steven Husby

Chicago-based painter Steven Husby has balanced painting, writing, blogging and teaching (he teaches painting and runs graduate seminars at the School of the Art Institute here) for years. Publishing, however, he's only turned to recently, producing zines alone and with co-producers, often current and former students. These seem to be a point of convergence between many of his interests, drawing together pattern, the resplendence of imagery on tumblr, and collaboration (for teaching is certainly an act of collaboration). These zines act as rough and easily disseminated counterbalances to the meticulous handicraft of his paintings. Find out more about some of them by clicking the covers below, or purchase them here.
