August 27 to December 15, 2016 at the Begovich Gallery of California State University, Fullerton:

The Explorers Guild: Rick Ross and Explorations in Graphic Fiction

This exhibition examines the work of filmmaker, illustrator, and graphic novelist Rick Ross. A vital component of the exhibition is Ross’ illustrations for The Explorers Guild: Volume One: A Passage to Shambhala (Atria Books; October 2015), a part novel, part graphic novel created in collaboration with filmmaker Kevin Costner and novelist Jon Baird. Through four years and over 600 pages of illustration, Ross developed a style of graphic storytelling inspired by the rich tradition of early 20th-century comics and adventure fiction

Also featured is Ross’ short film, Backslide (2003) starring Felicia Day; a selection of his pop culture paintings; drawings from his Agitainment Comics series; artwork for the graphic novelization of Spike TV’s 1000 Ways to Die (for which Ross was the lead artist); and motion comics for DeadTown and the television series Femme Fatales and Dexter.
