THE ART & DESIGN OF

COMIC BOOKS

UNTIL OCTOBER 31, 2020

Exhibition Overview

We've all seen them, and at one time or another must have read one or two. Comic books have been woven into society since The Adventures of Obadiah Oldbuck in 1837. They've been used for everything from keeping children occupied and encouraging them to read to delivering anti-drug messages and wartime propaganda. Today, our beloved comic book heroes and villains are big business! Self-publishing and new technology have allowed virtually anyone to realize their dream of sketching out their own idea for the newest super hero or astonishing story. MASKED The Art and Design of Comic Books explores the ways comic book culture has grown and evolved. We'll also expose you to a trio of local artists who each has found comic books to be their avenue of artistic expression.

Peter Elasigue

As in independent artist with a passion for comic book art I've had the good fortune of being commissioned regularly to produce comic book art and sequentials for clients.

I consider myself a "hobbyist" with a vision to one day "Live the dream" of being a full-time comic book artist.
