On Thursday, September 22nd, David Shrigley will be at WORD Bookstore in Brooklyn, NY to celebrate the launch of WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING? The evening will include a talk, book signing and sharpie tattoos by the Glasgow-based artist. East River Tattoo will also be on hand to permanently ink Shrigley drawings onto his most serious fans, a ballsy act amongst diehard fans last seen during the Frieze 2010 Art Fair. There will also be a raffle, sponsored by Anton Kern Gallery, for the prize of one free permanent tattoo!

The following is a description from publisher W.W. Norton & Company, where the book is available online for those unable to attend the reception.

“The upcoming book, WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING? is a provocative collection of illustrations, drawings, comics, photography, and sculpture. Shrigley leaves no topic untouched—he explores everything from clowns to caffeine, sexuality to God, emails to art itself, boldly spanning the mundane, the bizarre, and the unfathomable.”
