Steve “Espo” Powers is a Studio Gangster
“I wanted to make art that reached out to people like music does.”
Espo’s work is witty, entertaining, graphic, and speaks to the viewer. This book, originally made as a catalog for his show in Philadelphia, is a page turner and you want to keep going through it one day after another. He also has comments throughout the book, explaining the art, making a joke beyond his humor in the art, or making fun of himself for not spelling something right. There’s even examples of his practice work on illustration board.
“Steve Powers is a graphic genius. His Philly roots shine in this glorious collection of colorful work. Buy this book.” – Online Review
