Monte Beauchamp’s annual collection of comics, illustrations and graphic design is on the stands and it features two members of the Illustration Department’s finest–our very own chair, Steven Guarnaccia and full-time faculty member, Nora Krug–along with a host of other fantastic illustrators and designers.
From the official press release:
Blab! Vol. 18 delivers like nobody’s business, with a decided focus on the comic arts. Underneath the covers by Ryan Heshka are a slew of all-new comic stories: Mark Zingarelli reveals the “Chick’s Club Taboo”; Euro-comics sensation Paco Alcazar tells a Lynchian superhero tale called “Obedience”; Peter Kuper dishes on the bullies that dogged him as a youth in “Bully for You!”; “Sirens of Silence” is cover artist Heshka’s wordless depiction of a post-global disaster existence; Sue Coe presents the true tale of Coney Island’s “Topsy the Elephant”; underground legend Skip Williamson serves up “Daddy Was a Lady,” a portrait of legendary drag queen Rae Burton; Steven Guarnaccia returns with the story behind the man who created Miniature Golf in “Moe Greene’s Hole in One”; Mark Frauenfelder of boingboing.com fame contributes the comic strip “Juicemaker’s Dream.” This volume introduces amazing new talent to the pages of BLAB!: Travis Louie, Nora Krug, Mark Zingarelli, Travis Lamp and MORE!
Congratulations to Steven and Nora!
