This ain’t comics, but it’s certainly cool. Artist Jemma Salume (whom we’ve previouslyblogged about) recently began doing some excellent animal art — poses of animals that are one part model studies, but also excellent finished illustrations on their own. You can see some of them below, and even more on her DeviantArt gallery, and buy prints at Society6.
Salume recently contributed covers to to two Adventure Time books: Adventure Time #17 and Candy Capers #2. I’m hoping we’ll see Salume more in comics soon, but until then you can always buy her minicomic series Captain Kitten direct from the artist.
In recent weeks we’ve seen a firestorm emerge after a few lone voices on the comics Internet talked about a mythical “fake geek girl” and how they believe them to be a bane to fandom. Pundits have come out on both sides of the fence, but it wasn’t until cartoonist Jemma Salume came forward that we saw the real dangers in her strip, “FFG.” Be warned, here it is:
As if you didn’t have enough reason to go to the Alternative Press Expo this weekend in San Francisco, cartoonist Jemma Salume will be brandishing a new minicomic pairing pussycats with pirates.
Ladies and gentlemen, Captain Kitten.
Described by the artist as “sixteen pages of feline piratical exploits,” the one-shot promises cats, jetpack pterodactyls and what could be my next catch-phrase, “Knives On His Face!”
Salume will be bringing 100 copies of this one-shot with her, along with her previous one-shot Unicorn Life Cycle and a number of stickers and other art. Look her up at table #450 this weekend at APE, and buy me a copy! Seriously!
