The most official looking costume was, of course, the manga version of the Turtles.  ...or is that the new "Fast Forward" version? Whatever.

Open Your Heart
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Jordan Crane 10 Apr 2008 8:09 PM

Since we mentioned Jordan Crane and his daughter Andalucia a few posts ago, I thought we should link to this video since we never have before. It's Lavender Diamond's first music video, "Open Your Heart." Lavender Diamond features cartoonist Ron Rege, Jr. on drums and is the fella at the end that the singer, Becky, embraces. But wait, that's not the only comics connection: the cameo of the man in the hat with the little girl? Jordan and Andalucia!

Castle Waiting Vol. II #11 by Linda Medley

Castle Waiting Vol. II #11
By Linda Medley

A fable for modern times, Castle Waiting is a fairy tale that's not about rescuing the princess, saving the kingdom, or fighting the ultimate war between Good and Evil — but about being a hero in your own home. In this issue: with nary a strip-mall in sight, the castle folk enjoy an evening of bowling and clothes shopping; and Jain learns some interesting details concerning lovable Doctor Fell's puzzling condition.

New site poll
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under meta 10 Apr 2008 2:43 PM

We ended voting on our poll question "Which part of our product listings do you find most useful or persuasive?" and more than half of you who responded said "Preview images & downloads." We're already stepping up our efforts to give you more of what you want (and now that Flickr is hosting videos, watch for video previews in the near future), so thanks for your feedback! See the final poll results here. If you have any other comments, please drop us a line.

For our new poll, we're asking what your primary consideration is when making a purchase from our website. The poll can be found on the right column of FLOG and on our front page (and elsewhere on our site). We promise that we'll take a break from picking your brains for marketing info and put up a fun poll in the near future!

Amor Y Cohetes - A Love and Rockets Book by Los Bros Hernandez

Time for another daily photographic sneak peek at an upcoming book that we recently received "in the flesh" at the office. Today it's the latest and final (for now) volume in our Love and Rockets Library reprint series, Amor Y Cohetes, collecting all the stand-alone non-continuity stuff from L&R Vol. 1.

Meg Hunt
Written by Jacob Covey | Filed under Meg HuntKovey Korner 10 Apr 2008 12:01 PM

There are a few artists who I've been wanting to post about before I get swamped with fatherly duties. I'll be trying to do that over the next week or so. Up first...

megpreg.jpg

Meg Hunt is still a young illustrator but one whose details you can look at and see that she works hard to flesh out her images for her own development as an artist-- her clients probably wouldn't notice if she spent half the time she does on her work. Which is exactly why I enjoy watching her evolve and why she's someone who will be working for more of the clients who DO notice the details.

She's also one of the few design-conscious illustrators that I enjoy. I can't really define what I mean by that (and there's probably an actual term for this), but all of her illustrations are very designed, have a smart color palette and textures, and emphasize shapes more than, say, a fully-formed setting. Most illustrators who do this do so at the expense of a soul to the work but Meg maintains life and a personal vision in what she does-- the backgrounds still matter and evoke relevant setting.

Check out her Flickr page to see more process, including details on the handcut rubyliths that make up that screenprint above. I was happy to learn that she never composes her images in the computer, still preferring to plan it all out by hand, including her sophisticated, overlapping coloring.

Meg would be great for the children's book market. Are you reading this, children's book market? Call her.

MEANWHILE, that print will be in an art show here in Seattle that opens Friday at the Suite 100 Gallery.

Get her Tinymeat wallet here.
