The Art of The Rattling Wall

Los Angeles, CA: Please join PEN Center USA and Narrow Books at Synchronicity on February 23, 2013, at 7 PM for the opening of BEN TEGEL: The Art of The Rattling Wall. The Rattling Wall is a Los Angeles-based literary journal specializing in short fiction, travel essays, and poetry. BEN TEGEL: The Art of The Rattling Wall is a month-long gallery show, featuring the artwork that appears in the journal’s third issue, as well as Tegel’s new work.

Illustrator Ben Tegel was born and raised in St. Louis. He studied painting at Washington University and, following graduation, left for Los Angeles to start a rock 'n' roll band. Currently he illustrates for books and magazines (Flaunt, Beautiful/Decay), music venues (House of Blues, Viper Room), T-shirts (Vans, Hello Minor, B/D Apparel, Das Monk), and himself. He lives in the Brookside area of Los Angeles with his wife and two small dogs. For the third issue of The Rattling Wall, Tegel created eighteen new illustrations using India ink and watercolor washes of Payne's gray. The journal's inside covers feature preliminary drawings and reference sketches. The outside cover artwork is an original watercolor piece.
