The Art of Steven Weissman
About 3 years ago, I went to a small independant comic show at UCLA and was introduced to the work of Steven Weissman. His Yikes world is populated by a group of kids that include a dead boy, a boy made from the parts of other boys and Lil Bloody, a kid vampire. But the stories are sweet and personal, with artwork that continues to amaze me everytime I revisit it. In 2004, I was lucky enough to have Steven do a couple commisioned drawings for me of amusement park scenes. They are some of my most prized pieces of artwork. More of his work can be seen on his BLOG and on the Fantagraphics website. All images shown here are c. Steve Weissman.
