Vaughan & Chiang's "Paper Girls" Builds a Familiar Yet Disconcerting World
Rufus Dayglo has been relatively quiet since leaving the Tank Girl franchise in early 2011, but he’s been regularly trailing a new series, Solid Gold Death Mask, on his blog/Tumblr for a while now. The new series looks like it’s not a million miles away stylistically from his work on Alan Martin’s signature character, and Dayglo’s sterling work there (six volumes’ worth over four years) means I’m eagerly anticipating his next move.
Rufus Dayglo, the artist known for his work on 2000AD, Tank Girl and the upcoming Solid Gold Death Mask, opened up his studio over the weekend as part of his local Hackney Wicked culture festival. He’s posted an account of the ensuing chaos, and a comprehensive gallery of the goings-on, at his blog. This is obviously an experiment worth replicating around the world. It doesn’t hurt that Dayglo’s workplace is a treasure trove of art, toys, props and other cool stuff. Looks like we should get him to take part in Shelf Porn some Saturday. Also: Thank goodness he parked his bike outside for once.
