Hignite and Panter will be signing copies of In the Studio at Star Clipper (6392 Delmar Boulevard, University City; 314-725-9110) on Saturday, October 14. (Don't worry, you'll be hearing more about Panter's whirlwind St. Louis weekend.)
Come winter, the Hignites will journey to rural France, where they'll work with Crumb and his wife Aline Kominsky-Crumb on an upcoming Crumb show at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco. Then it's back to St. Louis to continue work on issue nine of Comic Art.
This week Hignite finally quit his day job as a museum-grade art framer. "We'll see if I can get by," he says with a touch of nervousness. "I don't know if it's going to work, but St. Louis is probably the only place in the world where I could live and hopefully make it work, just because it's so inexpensive." -Randall Roberts
