Curated by Allegra Lockstadt & Meghan Murphy | Sept 2016


Allegra Lockstadt and Meghan Murphy invite their favorite illustrators to let go, and unleash their most haunting obsessions into a group gallery show. Hosted by Public Functionary, the show explored mermaids, scars, Japanese food, the color pink, depression, giant ladies eating things, the state of Ohio, and more.

Two panel discussions on the Saturday morning after the opening, exploring the topics of process, client relationships, and commercial success in the world of illustration.
