Paste Magazine.com has listed Ellie On Planet X as one among “14 Awesome Webcomics To Distract You From Getting Things Done!” Anytime we get to be included with the likes of Kate Beaton’s Hark! A Vagrant and Jonathan Rosenberg’s Scenes From A Multiverse is okay by me. Plus there’s another eleven comics I need to check out now. I’m especially tickled by the idea of Hipster Hitler (as wrong as that sounds). Read the article right here. Ellie’s on page two.
I previously posted how the 50th anniversary of issue one of the Fantastic Four was being commemorated by Green Brain Comics in Dearborn, Michigan. 26 artists were asked to contribute their interpretations of one of the pages for a show opening next week in Green Brain’s Headspace Gallery.
There’s a nice write-up about the show in this week’s Metro Times (the local Detroit alt paper) that features amazing artwork by some of my talented friends (Sean Bieri and John Nagridge - Sean’s is the first one, John’s is the last), as well as my page too. The show opens next Wednesday, Sept. 21st, and will be on display until December 31st. Check it out, True Believers!
UPDATE: WDET.org has posted a blurb about the show too!
I first came across Michael Sloan’s work via Drawger.com. I really admire his minimalist brush work, where there’s just enough information given to tell you what you need to know. He recently illustrated a dream he had one night, and upon waking he wrote it all down so as not to forget it (as we all often do). He was compelled to do so because the dream was a particilarly coherent tale. Click the pic to read it.
Michael Sloan is also the creator of the Professor Nimbus comics, many of which can be read online, right here.
I thought I’d share these wood block paintings that my super-amazing girlfriend, Azucena Nava-Moreno, is doing for a gallery show (not sure which one or where yet). Anyway, we’re working on a website for her so she can strut more of her stuff. For now, I give you these works in progress!
