This week’s illustration of Inky the Domesticated Panther supplied by cartoonist and competitive eater, Jeff Manley. Thanks, Jeff!!
Here’s another great issue of this great series that I somehow overlooked while it was actually being published by Vertigo back in the nineties.
That cover is by Duncan Fegredo (styled “Frogredo”) and it’s perfectly rich and detailed.
Then there are all the magic panels inside.
The frame around that illustration of sneakers and a frog is the actual color of the paper, now that it’s twenty years old. I wonder if artists ever think about using aged paper on purpose. It seems like such nice warm ivory or beige that maybe other colors would show up better against it?
With Fegredo up front it might be easy to forget that the amazing Glyn Dillon did all of this interior work. I hope to happen upon some more of these sometime.
The author of The Nao of Brown will be a Featured Guest at this year’s festival.
Nao Brown is a struggling illustrator looking for love whilst living with OCD. When she finally meets the man of her dreams, it comes with the realisation that… dreams can be quite weird. Through meditation, to quieten her mind and open her heart, she begins to understand that things aren’t always black and white. In fact, they’re much more… brown.
