Tonight: Blast off for parts unknown at PlatteForum's Jump Suits exhibit

Artist Teddy O'Connor goes both ways: He works in three dimensions, creating mixed media assemblage works, but for the last couple of years, he's also been hard at work making comic books infused with a funny, personal Teddy vision, about the lives of pyramids and other rarefied nonsense. "As an artist," he says, "I like to divide my time between illustration work and other mediums. "I think it's important to have your hands in other things, just to keep you inspired."
KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Susan Froyd started writing for Westword as the "Thrills" editor in 1992 and never quite left the fold. These days she still freelances for the paper in addition to walking her dogs, enjoying cheap ethnic food and reading voraciously. Sometimes she writes poetry.
