While we were at Artomatic checking out Emily’s show, we also had the distinct pleasure of meeting Ben Claassen III the creator of Dirtfarm. Ben is a delightful, wry, fun guy. His work is great.

We bought two prints for the pile (and we’re contemplating more):

Two of many Dirtfarm comics.

The best part of the exhibit (other than the presence of Ben himself) was the wall where prints and originals were displayed. There were many hilarious comments written directly on the wall in sharpie. My bet is Ben was super dangerous as a student.
