Eleanor Davis Google Doodle!
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Things to seeEleanor Davis 20 Mar 2014 12:06 PM

Eleanor Davis Google Doodle

Google welcomes Spring today with a lovely and charming animated logo by the one and only Eleanor Davis! Go look (if you miss it, it'll be archived here), then come back here to pre-order Eleanor's book How to Be Happy.

Update: The Washington Post has the inside behind-the-scenes scoop!

Spring-Summer 2014, part 7: Esther & Eleanor
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under KickstarterEsther Pearl WatsonEleanor DavisComing Attractions 14 Nov 2013 6:18 PM

Our campaign to support our Spring-Summer 2014 season on Kickstarter is ongoing, and we're continuing to spotlight the books in question, a couple at a time. We've also put our season catalog online for you to browse. (Please note that all artwork, contents, prices, specs, and release dates are preliminary and subject to change.)

Unlovable Vol. 3 prelim cover

Unlovable Vol. 3
by Esther Pearl Watson

416-page two-color 5.75" x 5.75" hardcover • $28.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-737-6

Summer vacation is here and Tammy Pierce is back with more sometimes ordinary, often humiliating, occasionally poignant, and usually hilarious exploits! Her hopes, dreams, agonies, and defeats are brought to vivid, comedic life by Watson's lovingly grotesque drawings, filled with all the eighties essentials — too much mascara, leg warmers with heels, and huge hair, etc. — as well as timeless teen concerns like acne, dandruff, and the opposite sex (or same sex, in some cases). Unlovable addresses the mysteries of high school through Tammy's naivete; girls and women in particular will find much that resonates, but men will also relate to Unlovable's universal humor and loser cast of characters. Tammy's life isn’t pretty, but it is endlessly endearing and hilarious.

For a Kickstarter pledge of $40 or more, pre-order this book signed by Esther Pearl Watson while supplies last!

How to Be Happy prelim cover

How to Be Happy
by Eleanor Davis

144-page full-color/b&w 7.5" x 9.875" softcover • $24.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-740-6 

Eleanor Davis's How to Be Happy is the artist's first collection of graphic/literary short stories, and it’s about time. Davis is one of the finest cartoonists of her generation, and has been producing comics since the mid-2000s. Happy represents the best stories she's drawn for such connoisseurial venues as Mome, Nobrow, and Lucky Peach, as well as her own self-publishing and web efforts. Davis achieves a rare, subtle poignancy in her narratives that are at once compelling and elusive, pregnant with mystery and a deeply satisfying emotional resonance. Happy shows the full range of Davis's graphic skills — sketchy drawing, polished pen-and-ink line work, and meticulously designed full-color painted panels — which are always in the service of a narrative that builds to a quietly devastating climax.

For a Kickstarter pledge of $35 or more, pre-order this book signed by Eleanor Davis while supplies last! Also available: exclusive t-shirt and (coming soon) prints!

(Fun fact: Esther and Eleanor are both Society of Illustrators medal winners!)

I See What You Say: Visual Stories and Narrative Art

Fantagraphics' own Lilli Carré and Mome-veteran Eleanor Davis are just a couple of the artists whose work will be featured in the exhibit I See What You Say: Visual Stories and Narrative Art.

Opening at the Cartoon Art Museum in San Francisco, CA, on Saturday, March 16th, I See What You Say explores narrative as expressed through a wide range of illustrative media — in picture books, comics, editorial art, and beyond. The participants are not just artists, but storytellers, joining their artistic practices with their own narrative styles.

Alongside Lilli and Eleanor, there will also be books and artwork on display from Vanessa Davis, Carson Ellis, Jon Klassen, Roman Muradov, Aaron Renier, Christian Robinson, Dasha Tolstikova, Craig Thompson, Sara Varon and Angie Wang.

A public reception will be held on Sunday, April 28th at 5:00 PM, with appearances by guest contributors Jon Klassen, Roman Muradov, and Christian Robinson, among others. Christian will be signing his new book, Rain! by Linda Ashman, and Jon will be joined by local author Lemony Snicket to sign their new picture book, The Dark.  

The show runs through July 7, 2013, at the Cartoon Art Museum [ 655 Mission Street, San Francisco ].
