OR – Art of Kill The Minotaur Signing + Art Show

Press Release: 

Sequential Art Gallery + Studio is excited to have artist LUKAS KETNER return to exhibit his artwork from KILL THE MINOTAUR from Image Comics. The exhibition begins with an artist’s reception from 6pm-10pm on Thursday, November 2nd, and will be available for viewing throughout November.

In KILL THE MINOTAUR, Chris Pasetto, Christian Cantamessa (RED DEAD REDEMPTION) and Ketner (WITCH DOCTOR) reinvent the most fearsome beast of all with this horrific tale of heroism. Athens lost the war to Crete. Now, they pay tribute to King Minos by sacrificing their best citizens to his unearthly labyrinth. Conspirators believe Theseus can be the hero they need to end the mad king’s bloody reign… but no one on this world has ever encountered anything like the savage minotaur.

Lukas Ketner grew up in Anchorage until moving to Portland, Oregon in 2000. He is the artist and co-creator of Witch Doctor, the launch title for Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman’s Skybound imprint at Image Comics. Other work includes stories for Dark Horse Comics’ Creepy Comics and Supersized: Strange Tales From a Fast-Food Culture, along with covers for IDW’s Hellraiser title. His illustration work varies from his work in comics to editorial illustrations for magazines and alt-weeklies to motorcycle helmet artwork for Icon Motosports. He was a 2009 nominee for the Russ Manning Award, and has twice won entry into the Communication Arts Illustration Annual for his album artwork for the band The Builders and the Butchers.

The KILL THE MINOTAUR exhibit will be on display the entire month of November. The gallery is open for viewing Mondays 2pm-6pm, Saturdays 11am-5pm, and by appointment. The exhibit closes on Saturday, December 2nd, at the end of business.

CA – Pashmina Launch Party

Press Release:

Join Nidhi Chanani and Trickster on Saturday, October 14th at 6:00 PM for the official launch party for her debut graphic novel PASHMINA. Expect original art (not available elsewhere), samosas and tea. This will be a truly special event and we hope to see you there!

Nidhi will do a short presentation about her process, path to comics and sign copies of PASHMINA.

About PASHMINA:
Priyanka Das has so many unanswered questions: Why did her mother abandon her home in India years ago? What was it like there? And most importantly, who is her father, and why did her mom leave him behind? But Pri’s mom avoids these questions–the topic of India is permanently closed.

For Pri, her mother’s homeland can only exist in her imagination. That is, until she find a mysterious pashmina tucked away in a forgotten suitcase. When she wraps herself in it, she is transported to a place more vivid and colorful than any guidebook or Bollywood film. But is this the real India? And what is that shadow lurking in the background? To learn the truth, Pri must travel farther than she’s ever dared and find the family she never knew.

In this heartwarming graphic novel debut, Nidhi Chanani weaves a tale about the hardship and self-discovery that is born from juggling two cultures and two worlds.

ABOUT NIDHI CHANANI:
Nidhi Chanani was born in Kolkata, India, and raised in Southern California. She holds a degree in literature from the University of California, Santa Cruz. She creates illustrations that capture the love in everyday moments. In 2012 she was honored at the White House as a Champion of Change for her art. Her illustrations are sold in boutiques along the West Coast and she’s worked with companies like Disney and Hasbro. Nidhi lives in the San Francisco Bay area with her husband, daughter, and two cats. Pashmina is her first graphic novel.
