All and Sundry: Uncollected Work 2004-2009 corrals Paul Hornschemeier s work from the last five years work previously ungathered, and in many cases never before seen in print. These works span the globe, from periodicals to museums, including: con-ceptual drawings and comics of Ulysses S. Grant created for an exhibit in Paris; an award-winning cover exhibited in the Victoria and Albert Museum in London; the seventeen-part serialized tale of divine intervention, non-linearity, and social webs Huge Suit Visits the People created for the celebrated German newspaperFrankurter Allgemeine Zeitung; and comic strips for The Wall Street Journal and CNN featuring the unlikely cartoon protagonists of Michael Jackson, Sylvester Stallone as Rambo, and the gray fox, Anderson Cooper. In addition to these oddities, All and sundry collects covers and designs from multiple foreign editions of Paul s books, ranging from Holland to Korea, as well as short, illustrated prose (thus far seen only in the pages of the anthology MOME). The collection concludes with extensive selections from sketches and sketchbooks, providing an unusual glimpse at the chaotic world of Hornschemeier s work, before the polishing of lines and colors of the printed page. Here we see how works have developed and what the future holds for still gestating projects All and Sundry, perhaps more than any previous collection of Hornschemeier s work, demonstrates the variety and depth of the artist s interests and pursuits, and invites an examination of the entirety of his process, from first fevered scrawl to final, pristine brush line.
