Liv Carberry created Imago. Here is her description: A 1940’s pilot struggles to stay alive after his airplane crashes. Price: $3
More of Liv’s work can be seen here. Imago is just one of twenty zines, small comic books, from my Illustration 2 class that will debut at MoCCA Arts Festival in NYC, April 11 and 12. MoCCA, the annual comics festival hosted by NY’s Society of Illustrators will be held in Chelsea this year. More info here.
Students had this entire semester, 11 weeks, to work on the zine project. We meet 6 hours a week, so at the very least, they get a sense of what they can do in 66 hours.
Not of This World: Two True Stories of Alien Encounters by Adam Leisenring
Adam Leisenring has acquired 2 top-secret government files from the Office of Extraterrestrial Research, circa 1955. He is now making this information available by publishing it in mini-comic form. The book will be $4 and will come in its own top-secret file folder. More of his work here. Adam, by the way, will be featured in the next issue of Illozine, a competitive quarterly devoted to contemporary illustration.
The Folly by Madison Stauffer is priced at $2. The story in brief: Two thieves find more than they bargained for when they break into the house of a woman rumored to be a witch. Madison’s artwork is leaning toward the supernatural lately. She is also doing the cover art for the next issue of The Journal of Dracula Studies. More of her work can be seen here.
Jordan Moser has been in a number of bands. His book, HEAVY, features a small-time metal band trying to graduate from playing small potatoes venues to getting a shot at the big leagues, but the odds are stacked against them when just about everything that can go wrong does go wrong. Price $5.
Kutztown University’s Communication Design Dept pays for the table space at MoCCA. This event is a great opportunity for our students to compare their work with projects from other art programs and meet indy publishers and artists. We will share more student images soon. MoCCA’s general admission is just $5 a day, a bargain for an art fest. Look for Kutztown at Table 239 in the Red Zone.
