Well-known for his ink and watercolor drawings of surreal scenarios (a bear smoking a cigarette, a cowboy riding a lion), Canadian-born artist Marcel Dzama has no shortage of hip projects on his résumé. He’s responsible for the cover of Beck’s Guero, collaborations with Dave Eggers at McSweeney’s, and the costume designs in the music video for Bob Dylan’s “When the Deal Goes Down,” to name a few. Most recently, Kim Gordon starred in a short silent film he made for the Toronto Film Festival. Tonight, he comes to BookCourt to sign his new illustrated monograph, Sower of Discord, which includes a pull-out poster, a foreword by Raymond Pettibon, three original short stories by Eggers, and an interview with Dzama by Spike Jonze.
