PC Acquire: This Takes the Cake

For this month%26rsquo;s PC Acquire headliner, we tapped upcoming Texas talent Fernando Ramirez, whose deft touch with a pen and colored inks was recently showcased in %26ldquo;Flying Solo%26rdquo; at Art League Houston. A 2009 BFA grad of the prestigious Kansas City Art Institute, Ramirez has percolated on the scene for the past several years until he was discovered by the Art League%26rsquo;s curatorial eye, Jennie Ash. Inspired by our bridal issue, the master of the inks created a special take on a modern wedding party, complete with soaring bride and groom, anthropomorphic gifts, a ring character and a towering, architectural cake. The timing is perfect: Ramirez%26rsquo;s limited-edition volume has just been released, a curated collection of 21 images, informed by cartooning and art historical precedents, published by Blurb, also available through PC Acquire. Original drawings, 9 by 12 inch, from $450; book $195. Inquiries Seth Vaughan, seth@papercitymag.com.
