Description

Subtitled “Drawings and Paintings of Mostly Pillowy Girls,” Overbite is a hardcover art book featuring forty of Cooper’s gorgeous oil paintings, each focusing on the female form. Cooper’s vibrant use of color in the lavish, textured rendering he uses to depict his favored body type — “pillowy” is a particularly apt descriptive — calls to mind a more colorful and surreal version of R. Crumb’s obsessive and sumptuous portraits of women.

This book also doubles as the sixth “issue” of Cooper’s ongoing comic book series, Weasel, though as a stand-alone hardcover art book it bears little relation to the first five issues; it functions much better as a catalog for upcoming and recent exhibitions of Cooper’s in Philadelphia, Ottawa, Los Angeles, and San Francisco.

Introduction by David Cross, of HBO’s Mr. Show, Ghost World & Arrested Development.

Dave Cooper is an animator, designer, and cartoonist who lives in Ontario, Canada. He has worked on Futurama, and co-created Pig Goat Banana Cricket for Nickelodeon.
