Chris Turbuck presents a series of narrative drawings that comprise two thirds of a nearly completed graphic novel titled Fruitless. Turbuck’s tragic-comic autobiographical works explore his unsuccessful attempts to secure a position as a college art instructor. His powerful yet quirky style of drawing is perfectly suited to this selection of self-contained visual anecdotes that depict life’s daily struggles. Fruitless will be published later this year. Canadian-born Turbuck recently received his MFA from Montana State University. We hope he finds employment after his departure from Kala.
