Derek Ballard

MAUDE SQUAD, my contribution to @spoke_art’s “Coen, where art thou?” group show. Opening tomorrow at Spoke Art NYC. To use the parlance of our times, this show is gonna be a fricken’ banger!


Alisa Bishop Bradley

“I had the opportunity to contribute to the ongoing web comic Warm Blood, different artists do every 4 or so pages, so it’s a neat project! I did the first 4 pages of the newest chapter, 6. It’s a comic about some supernatural weirdness and a high school murder mystery. These were fun to work on, and challenging, comics are tough, haha.”

“I painted some little portraits for some friend gifts! They’re off on new adventures together.”


Charlie Cressall

“The Valentine towels are printed and hot pressed. $5 each. They would be a great addition to a box of chocolates or a bottle of Vodka.” 


Melissa Healy Turner

Talin Wadsworth

“Preview of my #risograph print for http://www.booksofsomesubstance.com (Go check out their excellent podcast and maybe sign up if you dig reading good books with cool people like Nathan Sharp and Eric Heiman.)” 💀

“Happened to see this phrase somewhere yesterday and couldn’t get it out of my head. So here it is in red, purple, and green.” ❤️💜

Best New Comics Anthologies: A Visual Sampling
By: Michael Dooley | July 20, 2017

So many outstanding comics anthologies, so little quality eyeball time. But worry not: Print’s come to your rescue. Last year we surveyed “wonder women artists” nominated for San Diego Comic-Con’s Eisner Awards, located here. And on Tuesday we provided you with a visual sampling of this year’s top nominees, and you’ll find that here. And today we’ll wrap up with a design-based survey that highlights some of the more graphically striking and skillfully adventuresome artists within the “Best Anthologies” book category. The winner will be announced at tomorrow’s presentation ceremony.

Curious Pictures & Curiouser Conversations:
15 Artists In Wonderland
By Michael Dooley

Center Stage Gallery is now featuring more than 100 works by around three dozen of the field’s most creative pros: animation concept and character designers, visual developers, illustrators, and comics artists for movies, television, toys, and video games. Naturally, most are local, but the talent is as far-flung as Paris and Taiwan. And their work ranges from paintings and prints to handmade story-themed jewelry and micro-sculptures housed in tiny bottles.
