Due to intense boredom and monotony, it seems that the classroom is the perfect environment to induce sleep and awaken creative inspiration. Artist Jim Rugg (Street Angel / Afrodisiac) must agree with at least one of those sentiments, because he is about to launch a new exhibition entitled “Notebook Nerd” at the IAm8Bit Gallery in Los Angeles, which features 50 comic and gaming-inspired masterpieces created with ballpoint pens and notebook paper.
The exhibition is set to open on May 25 and offers free admission. In addition, AdHouse is compiling the pieces into a reproduction of Rugg’s original notebooks, and is set to make its debut next month at HeroesCon in Charlotte, North Carolina.
