The best game in town, Domy Books, once gain brought another stellar show to Austin, TX. A collaborative show between Tim Kerr and Jim Houser. The show was about being friends being friendly to one another. What an unpretentious concept right? Imagine that. Chrissy Piper, Merrilee Challiss, and long time partner in crime, Dan Higgs were invited by ringmaster, Tim Kerr, to participate. -Manik Nakra
I first discovered Jim Houser's work here on Fecal Face but finally got to see it in the flesh. He absolutely KILLED IT. This wooden shingle piece was my favorite. My buddies and I geeked out over his line work. In case this whole being a badass artist thing doesnt pan out, Jim could always be one of those people who write text on a grain of rice at the mall.

Always tons of great limited edition books, toys, and zines at Domy. And they are constantly getting new stuff. Book People is a nationally known bookstore in Austin. Always at the top of National Best Bookstore lists. They dont even have the exclusives that Domy gets its hands on.

I think Jim uses brushes made from Abominable Snowman fur. Can't confirm it though.

This is my friend, Giselle Marie Muñoz. She modeled for Alyson Fox's photography book, A Shade of Red. Giselle also makes up one third of the coolest family in Austin!
These dolls/sculptures reminded me of the film, Tales from the Hood. That scared the shit out of me in junior high. I love horror but am a big scaredy cat too. Last great horror flick I saw was Funhouse(1981). It was made by the same guy who made the O.G. Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
The back room of Domy was opened as a project room of sorts for smaller shows. The debut featured work from William Gaynor and Conner O' Leary
The works have a Henry Gunderson vibe, no?
