EVENT THIS FRIDAY: "SMart" Hosted by Kevin Smith & Scott Mosier

coming this Friday, Oct. 23rd...
"SMart: Artwork Inspired by
Kevin Smith and Scott Mosier's SModcast"

If you don't know about SModcast, no worries, because just like with everything I know nothing about....I can teach you....through Wikipedia.

SModcast is a weekly podcast featuring filmmaker Kevin Smith and his long time producer partner Scott Mosier, although guests occasionally feature. Released each Sunday night, the episodes are generally one hour in length and feature Smith and Mosier discussing current events and other non-sequitur topics. The name was derived from taking the first letters of "Smith" and "Mosier" and replacing the "P" in "Podcast". The podcast is distributed through Smith's entertainment website Quick Stop Entertainment. New episodes are made available for download there each Sunday night or Monday morning, and are then released through the RSS feed the following Friday in order to ease bandwidth strains on the Quickstop Entertainment.

Titan Publishing just released "Shootin' the Sh*t with Kevin Smith: The Best Of SModcast," which takes some of the show's best bits and transcribes them into the written word. So to celebrate the book release and Kevin's Q & A event at the Orpheum Saturday night, we enlisted 25 artists to take these transcribed SMod moments and turn them into original paintings and prints for display and purchase. "SMart," hosted by Kevin and Scott, is a one-night event at G1988: LA, this Friday, Oct. 23rd from 7-11 PM and has spawned some amazing pieces. And we're excited to see the SMod-inspired pieces from:
