Before the ascent of his writing career, and his publishing career as the founder of the one and only McSweeney’s, Dave Eggers pursued the life of an artist.

Eggers returns to the realm of art with an exhibit of drawings to benefit ScholarMatch, an a amazing new program  that matches donors with students needing funds for college tuition.

The 40 posters, in the vernacular of political propaganda posters, will be on display from Electric Works at ArtMRKT which takes place in San Francisco, May 15-18.
