As the fall approaches, you don't have to say goodbye to the fruits and flowers that colored your summer. Artist Claire Nereim captures the garden in her vibrant and graphic posters. They're sure to add a little California to any room in the house, whatever your ZIP code may be. Even in winter, her "Seasonal Vegetables of California" (above) screenprint will have you thinking 'endless-bounty-and-sunshine', not 'impending-blizzard-of-doom'. (Oh, the joy of ... Read More
I might have mentioned that I am an artist. That means I'm always on the look out for inspiration. I've definitely found that in artist Agustina Woodgate. I was particularly interested to see her incorporate two different styles into one: graffiti and poetry. Being a Brooklyn girl, graffiti and all other types of street art is something that I really love and connect with and being somewhat introverted as well, poetry is something I've recently turned to as a ...

Last week we blogged those "tough as nails" pics of Frances Bean that Hedi Slimane took, and everyone seemed quite enamored with them, so in honor of baby Frances' 19th birthday today(!), I decided to post these lovely shots taken by one of our favorite photographers, Rocky Schenck, to show Frances' softer side. Enjoy, she is a beauty for sure! Fun fact: Rocky also photographed Margaret Cho for the cover of BUST in the 90's Also, if this post is making you feel ... Read More

One of the first comic strips introduced in my school’s comics course was Nancy by Ernie Bushmiller. My initial reaction? 'This confused, prickly-headed, hyphen-nosed child has no place in my heart!' I’m not a Sunday funnies kind of gal, so I didn’t understand what Nancy was trying to do. Is it supposed to be funny? Is it making some kind of point that I'm totally missing? During the course, my professor introduced us to How to Read Nancy ... Read More
This summer, Fantagraphics-published artist Megan Kelso released a re-print of her collection of earlier work, including the early minicomic Girlhero strips, titled Queen of the Black Black.

The lucky dog that I am, I got to ask her a few questions on what it's like to be a comics artist who went from all-DIY roots to being serialized in the New York Times Magazine. (All of Watergate Sue is available on the magazine's website; I ... Read More
