WA – Courtney Huston Art Exhibition

Artist Courtney Huston opens a solo exhibit at Ballyhoo Curiosity Shop on Thursday, July 20th at 6:00 PM. Courtney’s work will be on display July 20th – August 15th.

About the artist:
Courtney Huston is an illustrator who strives to make fantastical narratives while exploring her own domestic story. By intertwining a piece of herself in every piece, she hopes viewers are able to feel the same emotions felt at the time of creation. Her work is highly inspired by screen printing and other printmaking techniques. Her pieces are made with traditional ink and watercolor. These materials allow her to play with the juxtaposition of hard geometric lines and watercolor washes.

SF – Daydream on the Shore Release Party

Artist Christine Villanueva appears at Mission: Comics & Art on Friday, July 7th at 6:00 PM.

Cartoonist and illustrator Christine Villanueva debuts her personal zine that dives into the mechanics of her own reality and the personas of her psyche: a penguin named Socrates, her provocative inner-monologue C. and a talking rabbit. A confessional. A dull memory. A worthless dream. A game of chess with Death. Non-linear and not sure about the ending, it’s an autobiography of artist. Special variant covers will be available for the opening along with showcasing selected comic pages and available prints.

About the Artist:
Christine Villanueva is an American illustrator and visual artist living in Berkeley, CA. She studied Art History at University of California, Berkeley while cartooning for The Daily Californian Newspaper. After beginning her career as a gallery worker, she moved her interests towards illustration and comics.

Driven by the whims of her charming characters and visual language, Christine Villanueva’s work shows ambiguous narratives that grasp at familiar sensations taken from personal anecdotes and universal themes. Immersive, fantastical and at many times intangible, Christine creates surreal landscapes that allure a curiosity and beauty that brings a lightheartedness to her storytelling with a subtle depth that is not completely caught at first glance. Influenced both by the depth of Japanese manga and the crispness of European comics Christine strives to find truth among the chaos and confusion of human emotions while honing a playful approach.
