We’re very excited to share with you some sneak peek art from Jen Wang’s new graphic novel, The Prince and the Dressmaker, out with First Second Books in 2017!
The Prince and the Dressmaker is about a young 19th Century prince named Sebastian who secretly loves to wear dresses. He hires an ambitious young seamstress named Frances to make dresses for him and as their collaboration grows, so do their feelings for one another. Sebastian and Frances must find a way to balance their inner desires with the strict expectations of the royal family – or risk exposing Sebastian’s secret to the world.
“This book is really special to me because I basically wrote it for my teenage self, which is something I haven’t done before. I wanted a story that explored questions about gender and self-identity in a way that was also really colorful and fun and positive. The personal themes are there, but also lots of dresses and princesses. The idea was to create my ideal Disney movie, and writing this has genuinely been one of the most fun, liberating, experiences I’ve had making comics. My awkward confused fourteen year-old self would’ve really connected with this book and I hope it does the same for other young readers,” says Jen Wang.
Jen Wang is a cartoonist, writer and illustrator living in Los Angeles. Her young adult graphic novels Koko Be Good and In Real Life (co-written by Cory Doctorow) are published by First Second Books. She recently wrote the mini-series Adventure Time: Fionna and Cake Card Wars for BOOM Comics, illustrated by Britt Wilson. Her upcoming graphic novel The Prince and the Dressmaker will be published by First Second Books in 2017.
Correction: An earlier version of this post included an incorrect publication date for The Prince and the Dressmaker; it will be published in 2017, not 2016.
Stunning and Vivid Illustrations of Mythological Creatures by Rlon Wang
Shenzhen, China-based artist Rlon Wang composes stunning, high-energy illustrations, which showcase the beauty of East Asian folklore and art. By inserting a myriad of mythological creatures and symbols in one image, Wang saturates each piece with a burst of color and intricacy. Following the traditional style found in Japanese ukiyo-e woodblock prints, the artist composes highly emotive and exotic images, which overflow with imagery of nature and myth. Depicting a different animal in each piece, Wang’s meticulous attention to detail and color complement the wild and mystical quality nourished by East Asian art, literature and tradition. The hues within the composition complement the vibrancy and vitality of the busy pieces, which demand to be observed piece by piece. Although contemporary art follows a simple style, Wang’s designs are deemed beautiful because they contradict the dynamic of minimalism by imposing the beauty found within highly elaborate pieces. There is nothing dainty or delicate about Wang’s work. It is sheer power.
I’d never made a beard before, and I needed to make one quickly - so this was a method I whipped up when creating Sokka’s ridiculous Wang Fire beard! I was pretty dang pleased with how it turned out, and the best part is that it was easy and looked fairly realistic up close. This would be useful for any kind of bearded cosplay, or hairpiece that is more than a few inches wide.
Shenzhen, China-based artist RLoN Wang is back with more intricate illustrations that burst with color and life. Since we last shared his work a year ago,
Wang has branched out from more understated portraits of animals to
vibrant illustrations jam-packed with wild beasts, mythical creatures,
and motifs from nature. Rendered in a style reminiscent of Japanese
ukiyo-e woodblock prints, Wang’s drawings incorporate rich imagery from
East Asian folklore and art, including elaborately curled clouds, giant
carp, and fierce Chinese guardian lions. Overflowing with meticulous
details, dynamic line art, and vivid hues, each piece demands a second
or third look in order to be appreciated fully. via: mymodernmet
