Comics Illustrator of the Week :: Lauren R. Weinstein










Lauren R. Weinstein is a cartoonist, illustrator, and graphic storytelling teacher based out of New Jersey. Her work is distinct in it’s raw, humorous approach to the human condition, and sometimes ventures into the realm of a dark, surreal head trip. After graduating from Washington University in St. Louis, her first comics would start popping up in various publications like the Seattle Stranger, and Then, a few years, she would debut the critically acclaimed Inside Vineyland, her first collection of comics. Girl Stories, a memoir of her teenage years, and the over-sized Goddess of War, a tale about the God of Thunder’s great-granddaughter’s exploits, would soon follow.

Her work has been featured in The New York Times, Glamour,, Lucky Peach, and Kramer’s Ergot.

She was a recipient of the Xeric Foundation’s grant for self-publishing comics for Inside Vineyland, and her comics have been featured in The Best American Comics book series twice.

She is currently teaching at the School of Visual Arts in New York City, and working on her next graphic novel, a follow-up to Girl Stories.

You can read her latest work Carriers, a very personal webcomic about a very serious health situation with her unborn child, and the life lessons she took away from that experience.

You can keep up with the latest news, and see more of Lauren R. Weinstein’s art on her website.

Illustrator: Travis Lampe

1 flort04 travis_hydrablogflort03

What has a nose like a light switch, looks as though it escaped from a mid-century storybook, and is either weirdly endearing or actually sort of hideous depending on your point of view? A clue, you say? OK, well it probably also has bandy shoelace arms, and looks like it should be jigging up and down hypnotically in time to a crackly jazz soundtrack.

Give up? Why, it’s a character by Travis Lampe! Obviously. And there are plenty of them to see in his portfolio, so head on over and have a look. You will see eloquently executed editorial illustrations aplenty, plus a gallery of personal paintings featuring black and rubbery nightmare trees playing out their unsurprisingly problematic relationship with lumberjacks. Smashing!

Illustrator Meg Hunt




Meg Hunt is a fabulous illustrator and hand-letterer, although her aesthetic is informed by the printmaking process as well. In her own words, she’s inspired by “a sense of delight and the ability to tell stories.” She’s a self-described bookworm, nature buff, and former aspiring Muppeteer.

It’s obvious that Meg has a sincere love of nature and animals, a fondness acquired during childhood and one that flourished once she moved out west. A native of New London, CT, Meg attended the University of Connecticut and received a dual degree in printmaking and illustration. She’s mentioned that attending an interdisciplinary college aided in her own abilities to explore and play within her art–while there are obviously some pros and cons of attending state schools, I definitely agree with her sentiment on this. After finishing up college, Meg moved out to Phoenix, AZ for 4 years, then to settle in Portland, OR.

Meg turns to a variety of literature and comedic podcasts to help her draw out ideas. Her process shifts between analog and digital–she employs different physical tools such as watercolor paint, powdered graphite, mechanical pencils, wax pastels, and many more to add texture to her final compositions.

In addition to her work as a freelance illustrator, Meg has also taught at Portland State University and currently teaches Visual Techniques at Pacific Northwest College of Art. She is represented by Scott Hull Associates and her client list includes Nickelodeon Magazine, Junior Scholastic Magazine, Radiolab, Chronicle Books, and Threadless.

Follow along with Meg on her websiteblog, and Twitter.

Comics Illustrator of the Week :: Tradd Moore






Tradd Moore broke into the comics scene with the indy series The Strange Talent of Luther Strode, and it’s sequel The Legend of Luther Strode with writer Justin Jordan. His distinct, dynamic style, and liberal use of squash & stretch with his characters has quickly propelled Tradd Moore to the top of the mainstream comics world. He graduated from the Savannah College of Art and Design in 2010, and jumped right into illustrating comics after that.

Illustrator: Felideus










‘Intricate detail’ is a descriptor applied at times somewhat indiscriminately to illustration. After all, the mere presence of a lot of small marks doth not necessarily intricate detail make. For an example of artwork possessed of true intricacy – the type of detail that is comprised of many elements each enjoying their own intrinsic allure – we may consult the portfolio of Felideus.

There’s a lot going on in Felideus’s work. Not only are his steampunk-inflected images alive with immaculate toy-like creatures and characters in playset environments, but each of these are rendered in remarkable texture of such singularly tactile appearance that they invite you to reach out and touch them. Or poke them. Or possibly bite them – there’s a pleasing squeaky dog chew vibe about a lot of this stuff.

With its storybook aesthetic and crew of anthropomorphic denizens, Felideus’s work recalls the paintings of Femke Hiemstra, whose characters also appear to be tiny figurines. In fact, either artist’s beasties would make exemplary vinyl toys, and in Felideus’s case this is demonstrated nicely by the artwork he’s created for Buskers Beer. Transliterated by his talented model-maker wife, Jezabel Nekranea,and spritzed up with his own digital zing, his creations segue effortlessly from drawn into sculpted form.

Elsewhere in his portfolio, you’ll find some less densely-detailed but nonetheless elegant illustrations whose girls and goblins combo is like a collision of the brushes of Charles Vess and Alphonse Mucha, whilst also featuring an uncommonly tasteful application of halftones.

Feast your eyes on Felideus’s work over at his official website. You’ll find that he’s touting a deservedly impressive list of accolades, and links to a bunch of mates with similarly sweet work to check out.

Printmaker: Anna Tosney




After seeing Anna Tosney’s work displayed at the North Light Gallery, West Yorkshire, England, I was completely in awe over these simple yet beautiful prints! The bold line accompanied by a wash of vivid tone makes these prints come to life and gives a sense of character.

Tosney, a graduate at the University of Wales, institute, Cardiff, applies her knowledge learned from a Ba (hons) fine art (Printmaking) course which is clearly evident throughout her work. She takes inspiration from the Yorkshire Dales making the subjects of her work often relate to farming and landscape. Tosney applies a unique technique when creating her prints, using both mono-print and drypoint which allows the ink to form strong lines yet still keep the bold tones surrounding the imagery.

More of her wonderful prints can be seen on her Website or Facebook page.

Thanks for reading,
