Josh Kornbluth talks about his art, his inspirations and why he likes to present himself as a screwup. The Berkeley comic and filmmaker is at the Elmwood Rialto tonight, Monday.
If you passed Eric Drooker, 58, on the streets of Berkeley, you wouldn’t guess from his slight build and unassuming manner that he’s a giant in certain circles. Among other things, Drooker is a regular cover artist for The New Yorker, he collaborated with the late poet Allen Ginsberg, and he won the American Book Award for his 1992 work Flood! A Novel in Pictures.
