Drawing Between The Lines
The Story of Indy Comics' Jeffrey Brown

Author/artist Jeffrey Brown of Clumsy, I Am Going to be Small, and Every Girl is the End of the World for Me has established himself as one of independent comics' most unique voices. Autobiographical in nature, his exploration of the minutae of everyday life and life's common experiences have struck a chord both inside and beyond the comic industry. This acclaim has seen Brown featured on NPR's This American Life and his work brought to animated life as a music video for the band Death Cab For Cutie.

The recently completed film documentary Drawing Between the Lines explores Brown's unconventional style and his unique approach to storytelling in both the mundane and the spectacular. Providing insight from friends, fans and fellow cartoonists, the film carefully documents the sketchbook-filling Brown as he works at home, rides the L-train, and travels cross-continent to meet his fans at conventions. Not unlike Terry Zwigoff's brilliant Crumb in both subject matter and approach, film-maker Bruce Parsons takes the viewer on a candid trip through the working world of one of indy comics' most iconoclastic cartoonists.

The Isotope is proud to be hosting Chicago film-maker Bruce Parsons for the World Premiere of Drawing Between the Lines this Friday. Join us, won't you?
