Kitty Snacks #2 cover art by LEN CLARK!

Our friend Len Clark did the cover for Kitty Snacks #2. It's scary as shit and totally badass. It was printed from a hand-carved woodblock and is gigantic. We'll be offering limited edition hand prints of the full spread soon. Stay tuned for an official release date.

Also, there is still time to get your ugly mug drawn by Josh Burwell in Issue #2. Just donate $75 bucks or more and you can be a part of it all as well as get Kitty Snacks in the mail for the next two years. Help us out and we'll help you out.

WE FUN by Matthew Robison

Kitty Snacks Issue #2 features an interview with filmmaker Matthew Robison. The majority of the interview is about his film Silver Jew, which follows David Berman and his band through the Holy Land.

For the Arthur Russell fans: Director Matt Wolf interview in Issue #2

Kitty Snacks chatted it up with Matt Wolf on his recent documentary on avant-garde musician Arthur Russell, Wild Combination: A Portrait of Arthur Russell.

Before his untimely death from AIDS in 1992, Arthur prolifically created music that spanned both pop and the transcendent possibilities of abstract art. Now, over fifteen years since his passing, Arthur's work is finally finding its audience. Wolf incorporates rare archival footage and commentary from Arthur's family, friends, and closest collaborators—including Philip Glass and Allen Ginsberg—to tell this poignant and important story.

This is a great documentary on a truly strange and brilliant man. You can check out more on the film here and be sure to read the full interview with Matt in Kitty Snacks #2 (OUT SOON!).
