The second collection of avant-garde comics from Andrew Burkholder interrogates the notion of the artist as an aesthetic chameleon. "One morning at a gig space in Baltimore I watched Andy Burkholder pick up a tube of leftover frosting and use it to casually draw a simple but legible comic strip onto a piece of cardboard. His uninhibited intelligence and direct style create the conditions for breakthrough work. ITDN is the laboratory from which his later achievements have emerged."--Bill Kartalopoulos, series editor for Best American Comics "Andy Burgholder drives well. His mother has a nice car. I initially thought it was his car and wondered how he could afford a car."--Simon Hanselmann, author of Megahex "ITDN is a safari through the wilderness of human behavior. What you're going to see is a mess. You'll need a stick to tame this book...and a lifetime to read it. Better bring your gun."-- Anna Haifisch, author of The Artist ITDN collects a series of comics released from 2011--2014 by "ITDN Group," a seemingly plural entity solely comprised of Andy Burkholder. A follow-up to Qviet, this collection documents the artist's earlier years, providing insights into his explorations of the themes and concepts that underpin many of his more broadly received works. Andrew Burkholder is a cartoonist and and visual artist. His comics are abstract yet playful, oftentimes dealing with very adult themes twisted through an extremely dry sense of humor. His 2013 comic Pretty Smart was included in the Jonathan Lethem edited Best American Comics 2015 .
