News of a Hawaii exhibition

KHON-2 announced a exhibition held this week in Honolulu, where one of the organizers is the author of Pineapple Man:
Pineapple Man and Friends is an exhibit at The ARTS at Marks Garage and runs through April 28.

It’s all thanks to Sam Campos, a Hawaii leader in comic art and the creator of Pineapple Man.

It features everyone from veterans to students and self-taught artists.

“We showcase all of our comic book artists around the time of some of the other cons that happen statewide. And it’s to help these artists that don’t get to show in some of the galleries and you know, a lot of their stuff is underground or online,” said Elizabeth O’Brien, from The ARTS at Marks Garage.

“We see it in the newspapers, we see it of course, online, but not in the galleries,” said O’Brien. “So this is a chance for them to shine and show off their work and to be here in person to do that.”

[...] “Big comic book companies, you know, people see that but they don’t see the local guys a little guys us going, ‘hey, I have an independent comic,’ right?” said Wong. “So I think this is like this gallery helps us promote our work and showcase that it’s important.”
That's been a pretty apparent problem for years. The mainstream press doesn't really care about independent productions, no matter the quality of the story and art. All they care about is tabloid-like directions of the majors, one of the leading reasons so many stories with potential end up watered down when they're turned into movies. And there's no telling if that'll ever change.

Let's hope these exhibitions do draw more attention to what the island state has to offer, which can have as much potential as what's found on the mainland.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
