Happy hip-hop art by Enosh

Artist’s Crevice Creeps get a prehistoric twist

By Amy T. Granite
seenlocal2 Born Ready by Enosh

The Creepasaurus is not extinct, and it’s not another name for that wrinkly lurker at your community pool. The bubbly cartoon character, and others by Enosh, a local b-boy with a penchant for hip-hop-inspired street art, will be on display at the reception for DinoSoul, happening from 5 to 10 p.m. Saturday, July 14, at Thumprint Gallery (920 Kline St. in La Jolla, thumb printgallerysd.com). The artist, known for characters called Crevice Creeps, gives his creatures a dino twist. He draws on canvas before using markers, acrylics and spray paints that lend a cartoony effect to the funny, whimsical beasts that are intended for all ages to enjoy. The show will be on view through Aug. 5.

Have an idea for a comic book, zine or short film, but have no clue how to produce it? If so, you won’t want to miss Space4Art’s Do Anything exhibit-slash-seminar, kicking off with a reception at 6 p.m. Friday, July 13, at the art collective (325 15th St. in East Village) and running through Aug. 11. Friday’s opening of the event series—which includes DIY-publishing-themed art shows, readings and panel discussions— will include a film screening that coincides with the book Strange Attractors: Investigations in Non-Humanoid Extraterrestrial Sexualities, in which 69 artists, filmmakers and writers explore the possible sex lives of alien life forms. For a complete lineup of events, visit sdspace4art.org.

The Roots Factory (1878 Main St. in Barrio Logan, therootsfactory .com) will host a solo show at 6 p.m. Saturday, July 14, featuring the works of Lalo Alcaraz, a Mexican-American humorist and illustrator whose La Cucaracha politicalsatire comics had a long run in the L.A. Weekly before getting picked up by the Universal Press Syndicate. According to Alcaraz’s website, the SDSU grad created the “first nationally syndicated, politically themed Latino daily comic strip.” You can meet Alcaraz, as well as wiggle to music by Puente with DJ Boxy Dee and enjoy live screen-printing and refreshments. Also on Saturday, July 14, stop by Voz Alta Project’s group show, Superheroes, Freaks and Villains, also free and starting at 6 p.m. at 1754 National Ave. in Barrio Logan.
