February Art Show

The comic and collage work of Richmond Free Library Youth Librarian, L.J. Kopf.
L.J has been a professional cartoonist since 1976. His single-panel cartoon Edge appeared in every issue of the Vermont Vanguard Press, a news and arts weekly paper published in Burlington from 1978 to 1990. Into Every Life a Little Edge Must Fall, a selection of those cartoons, was published by Fantagraphics Books in 1988. Fantagraphics also published his strips in their anthology magazine Pictopia. Come take a look.
