Expertly illustrated, each page is a one panel comic that reads like a cartoon short. For folks who like simple yet profound images and observations.


Jacob Bladders and the State of the Art

Jacob Bladders and the State of the Art
by Roman Muradov

Set in a past where social media functions via a network of pneumatic tubes (I'm a sucker for anything involving pneumatic tubes), Muradov weaves a detective story in with commentary on commercial art in a style that is moodily reminiscent of the great Peter Kuper.


No One Told Me Not to Do This: Selected Screenprints, 2009-2015

No One Told Me Not to Do This: Selected Screenprints, 2009-2015
by by Jay Ryan

It's a new select collection of recent poster and commercial work of artist Jay Ryan - someone whose crazy skills really do put the GREAT in "greatest hits." It's rock poster art, alt-movie poster art and more.

by Amanda Burnham
During the Republican National Convention earlier this year, when the Republican Party officially selected Donald Trump as their candidate, Amanda was in Shanghai, watching it all on a laptop. She began to focus in on faces at the convention, and the result of that experience is this collection of powerful illustrations.


SP4RX

SP4RX
by Wren McDonald

It's a futuristic tale of corruption and survival as hackers swipe data for corporations, and the world is stratified into a 4-tier class system. Oh yeah, and what's really the deal with these implants for the working class?
