OR – Laid Waste Launch Party

000_fwc-laidwaste

Julia Gfrörer appears at Floating World Comics on Saturday December 3rd from 6-8pm to celebrate the release of her new book Laid Waste from Fantagraphics!

In a plague-ravaged medieval city, survival is a harsher fate than death. As corpses accumulate around her, Agnès, a young widow possessed of supernatural strength, must weigh her obligations to the dead and dying against her desire to protect what little remains. Laid Waste is a graphic novella about love and kindness among vermin in the putrid miasma at the end of the world. As with her evocative debut book, Black is the Color, Julia Gfrörer’s delicate, gothic drawing style perfectly complements the period era of the book’s setting, bringing the lyricism and romanticism of her prose to the fore.

000-dhc-workhorse

Press Release:

Dark Horse Comics is proud to announce Work Horse: Art by the People Who Make Your Comics, an employee art exhibition at Sequential Art Gallery + Studio in Portland.

Dark Horse staff members are always working with art in some capacity, but contrary to popular belief, not all are in-house illustrators. After several discussions between employees, it was discovered that there are many talented, artistic employees in all departments who work outside of the office in mediums ranging from paint, photography, and digital art to sculpture and embroidery.

Sequential Art Gallery + Studio, which has previously shown artwork by illustrators Tyler Crook (Harrow County, Bad Blood), Joëlle Jones (Lady Killer, Dr. Horrible), and Ben Dewey (Husbands, Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 9), has teamed up with Dark Horse to showcase the artwork of those who produce, promote, and sell our comics. The exhibition gives Dark Horse staff the opportunity to put their own awesome work on display, including pieces by Conley Presler (Digital Art), Ethan Kimberling (Design), Rhiannon Rasmussen-Silverstein (Production), Melissa Martin (Digital Art), Rick DeLucco (Design), Kelly Woessner (Marketing), and more!

“Dark Horse is known for nurturing artistic expression in our creators and artists. I’m proud to extend Dark Horse employees the opportunity to showcase their artistic excellence in the Dark Horse art show. We don’t just make comics; we make art,” says Dark Horse publisher and president Mike Richardson.

The exhibition will run December 1–26, 2016. The opening reception is December 1, 2016, at 6 p.m. at Sequential Art Gallery + Studio, 328 NW Broadway #113, Portland, Ore.

OR – A Walk in Eden Launch Party

0000_anilsen-fwx

Anders Nilsen (Poetry is Useless, Big Questions) presents A Walk in Eden from Drawn + Quarterly on Saturday November 12, 2016 from 3:00 – 7:00 PM!

Press Release:

A keen observer of the natural world and the mystical treasures contained within, Anders Nilsen uses lush, inky lines to craft an enchanting, meditative journey for your coloring tools. A Walk in Eden is a fantastical view of primeval creation, with an exquisite mix of sprawling landscapes and close-up examinations of plants, fungi, and minerals—think giant crystal formations emerging out of pools surrounded by lush vegetation and flowers the size of small trees. Though this is a world void of humans, here and there are small reminders of our presence.

Informed by the designs of Ernst Haeckel and other early scientific and botanical illustration, Nilsen’s world is intricate, playful, and inspired, waiting for you to make it your own. With 80+ full-page drawings, Nilsen invites you to join in the fun and bring the adult- and kid-friendly world of A Walk in Eden to life.

There will be original art by Nilsen on display, and Floating World Comics will be in attendance selling books. Snacks will be provided by Stumptown and Poplandia, and the event will even include complimentary art supplies from Blick. We’ll be giving away select prizes for outstanding work as well.
