This collaboration between artist Aaron Scamihorn and writer Jason Roemer gives new meaning to the word "backstory." That is, Roemer's short story text fills in the backdrop on three Scamihorn portraits on display at Big Car including "Crosstown Cab." In this screenprint/painting, you see the face view portrait of one forlorn fortysomething dude, unshaven and bespectacled. Scamihorn is drawn to a Pop art style — Roy Lichtenstein meets Robert Crumb.
