We’re proud to announce the release of issue #1 of The Radical Adventures of Sk8 Skate & Hammer, by Nick Iluzada. It follows a skateboarding stingray and her sharky best friend on a very curious journey. It will debut at Comic Arts Los Angeles this weekend (fingers crossed).
I made an Ice King comic with Ryan North for the latest issue of BOOM’s Adventure Time comic (made sure to grab an issue with Nick Iluzada’s cover variant). Thanks AD Whitney Leopard for the sweet gig!
I’m looking for my first studio space and it’s pretty overwhelming. So I decided to do what I do best, which is talk to people and ask them a lot of questions. Today I visited the Greenpoint, Brooklyn studio of illustrator Nick Iluzada, whose name I will link repeatedly.
Nick’s work is bright and cheerful with a whole lot of movement. Sort of like him, basically. He’s done editorial work for like The New York Times and The Atlantic, releases his own prints and zines, and does lots of collaborative projects too. He is in my 2013 weekly planner! He is a nice guy! He has a tumblr!
As a freelancer, he needs to keep busy and focused, but he seems pretty good at both of those things. His shared studio space is full of physical resources (all the paper! risograph printer! a million comics!) as well as people resources (I met cartoonist & illustrator Nick Sumida too!) and tons of good stuff to look at.
I guess a good way to develop your work and explore new ideas is to work with other people, in a space that allows for experimentation, that isn’t just your bedroom. If anyone else around NYC has a cool studio space to check out, let me know!
Another variant cover for the Adventure Time comic! PB is just chillin’ in her rainbow skylab. This issue has got some rad people in it like Liz Prince, Jon Vermilyea, Luke Pearson, Yumi Sakugawa, and yours truly!
