The work is so killer, so happy to be in a show along side these amazing people - thank you Robbie (+David) !
Coinciding with Emerald City Comic Con, Roq la Rue presents One Page, A Comic Show. One Page is a group show featuring contemporary and comic book artists, showing in the gallery at the same time. Each artist will be producing a one page comic with a short story, similar to what you would see in the Sunday comics.
Curator Robbie Lowery says: “I originally got the idea from Ryan Heshka who had shown at Roq la Rue a couple years ago and included a couple pieces that were short, stand alone comics. Such a great idea. Now if you’ve ever been to a comic con, you’ve probably seen some artists selling original comic pages from books they have illustrated. While the pages are usually awesome, a lot of times there isn’t any context to the page when removed from the other pages, especially if there is dialog. I wanted to give comic artists the chance to display a full comic in one page, rather than two dozen. The comics have to include original characters. Sorry, no Batman!”
Contributing artists include; Ashley Wood, Sail, Ryan Heshka, Rufus Dayglo, Nico Delort, Andrew MacLean, Matthew Dunn, Veronica Fish, Audrey Kawasaki, Syd Bee, Travis Lampe, Jim Mahfood, Julian Callos, Rosemary Valero-O’Connel, Hope Larson, Julia Gfrörer, Leonard Brizuela, Dan McCarthy, Farel Dalrymple, Allison Sommers, Ben Rankel, Brendan Larson, Syd Bee, and Casey Weldon.
