Big Monsters, Little Library


Hey, remember me? Been a while since I posted, what with school and all (I'm back at Wayne State getting an art history degree). I have been working on one art project in my meager spare time, though: decorating the Little Free Library that lives in front of the Hatch Art building in Hamtramck. The kaiju theme was inspired by Hatch's fire-breathing monster mascot. Here's a preview, before I return it to it's post on the front lawn.



UPDATE: Here it is in situ outside the Hatch gallery.

The Book of Judith

I first created this mini-comic version of the story of the apocryphal/Biblical heroine Judith a few years ago using the Print Gocco screenprinter. I printed 150 copies or so and hand-stitched the binding.

Judith was a favorite subject of 17th century painter Artemisia Gentileschi, whose Judiths, unlike those of her male contemporaries, actually looked capable of and predisposed to sawing a man's head off his shoulders. One of Artemisia's masterpieces is here in the Detroit Institute of Arts, a suspensful post-beheading Judith scene.

Film history humor

Another swipe at the administration via Photoshop collage. I admit this was inspired at first by Karen Pence's hairdo, but the rest fell into place, as things often do with parody pieces like this. It helps if you know the poster to the 1986 Jonathan Demme movie first, of course.

Pounce on this!

So glad to finally be able to share this illustration, the cover art for the upcoming book “The Deeds of Pounce” by my pal Benjamin Wachs — a tale of goblins adventuring through San Francisco! Pick up your copy via the publisher, Beating Windward Press.
