A zoomy little preview from a project I just finished.
Here’s a piece I did for this show: Holy 75th Anniversary, Batman! Which opens April 26th here in Chicago.
Prints will be for sale at the show, and online soon.
Ooh speaking of local shows, the Second City show, "Depraved New World" is very good. I saw it last night, and it was hilarious. If you’re in town, you should try to catch it!
HIRE THIS WOMAN: CARTOONIST LUCY KNISLEY
Cartoonist Lucy Knisley attended both the Art Institute of Chicago and the Center for Cartoon Studies. She’s written two graphic novels, French Milk and Relish, the latter of which was a New York Times bestseller. She’s also worked for many comics publishers including Boom! and Marvel.
Hey it’s me! Yes please hire me.
A page from my sketchbook with digital colors. Drawn while I was in Paris last month for the release of the French and German editions of my book, Relish.
Since then, I’ve also been on a short school speaking tour, planned quite a lot of my wedding, dealt with the death of a family friend, and moved house with John. It’s been a looong Polar Springtex.
Now I’m sifting through sketchbook stuff from the last month or so. This turned up! Paris object celebration sketches! I like objects, though the gendered French objects somewhat confound me.
New desk setup, new drawing to share!
This is the design I made to celebrate a societal convention into which I am entering within the year!
It’s only a small family celebration in a backyard, but you know we’re gonna have a super nice card!
I’ve actually designed quite a few wedding invites for people through commissions. Always fun, and good practice for my own. Who knew weddings were such a great excuse to make nice art? Best argument for matrimony I’ve ever heard.
Love & art, fools. Love & art.
I’ve been working and packing for my move all week, so I thought I’d reward myself with doing a little fan art.
How I became “That Antisocial Girl” in my weekend letterpress class.
Comics are beautiful and intricate stories and artwork that you can HAVE so EASILY for way less than they’re worth, and if you’re going to steal them anyway, please just don’t talk to me about it or call yourself “into” them thanks.
(This guy was a “designer,” too. No excuse.)
But letterpress is really fun.
