Do you have a dream? For fame? Fortune? A juicy burger?
Jim the artist dreams of all three, but he only needs enough fame and fortune to pay for his family to eat at everyone's favorite burger joint.
And if he can just sell one painting from the back of his pickup truck, his dream will come true.
A story for all ages—told almost exclusively with pictures—Starving Artist follows the highs and lows of one artist’s day and the little joys that keep him going.
As a bonus, the comic book includes a supplemental chart that gives a brief and colorful lesson in the history and range of abstract painting, and it features James Hough’s canvas Burger Night.
