  14. Seth Tobocman profiled as part of EVGrieve blog’s continuing examination of LES residents:


    I moved to NYC in 1976, year of the bicentennial. I was initially a student at NYU and stayed in the dorms. I had an apartment in Greenwich Village for a short period of time, got thrown out of there and moved to the East Village in 1979. I moved to my East 3rd Street (near Avenue A) apartment, which was $150 a month in rent. I dropped out of college, had no money. I knew I wanted to be an artist but I wasn’t sure what kind. I was interested in underground filmmakers like Kenneth Anger but not interested in mainstream comics. I was uncertain what I wanted to do and it was cheap to live here.

    Seth and WW3I artist Sandy Jimenez will be reading from their selections in the Graphic Cannon Vol. 3 at this weekend’s Uptown Lit Festival on Saturday, Oct 19th at 3pm as part of a panel with Ted Rall and Andrea Arroyo.
