Arthur Jones will Illustrate Your One-Sentence Story



This summer, writer, illustrator and animator Arthur Jones will illustrate your one-sentence story with one Post-It Note. Jones, who has taken his Post-It Note Series on a cross-country tour, and whose yellow sticky notes have given darkly comic life to the stories of David Rakoff and Jonathan Goldstein will now illustrate yours. The animator of videos for punk bands Man Man and Need New Body, among many others, says “You go ‘badda-beep-boop-bop’ and I go ‘dweedlty-do-dwap-pfzzt’ and then we have something we created together. It might sound like Ornette Coleman or it might sound like John Tesh.” And keep an eye out for the upcoming Rumpus Interview with Arthur Jones.
