Member Spotlight: Alvaro Diaz-Rubio



What luck. Here I am digging around our website for someone to feature when I stumble upon the work of Alvaro Diaz-Rubio and quickly discover he's an incredible artist and illustrator from South Florida that actually studied right down the street from our studio. It's a nice coincidence when that happens.

Alvaro's art takes me back to a time of vintage comics and being 13 years old trading gnarly Garbage Pail Kids cards outside the mall's convenience store. It's clear he draws all day long and even claims he'll most likely doodle on the inside of his coffin. His illustrations have appeared in publications like the Village Voice, LA Weekly and the New Times. Help me welcome Alvaro to Doodlers Anonymous and you can always check out more of his work at his website, Operation Underwear.

For something extra special, scroll down for a great time-lapse video of Alvaro drawing a quirky rendition of his lineage.

Make Comics with Josh Bayer

Josh Bayer is a prolific cartoonist, independent publisher and teacher based in New York City. I took Josh's Comics and Cartooning class in Brooklyn last year and learned a ton about the history of comics, ranging from early newspaper strips to Marvel's Golden Age to the alternative comics being made today. He also taught us his process, storytelling, drawing and inking techniques, and encouraged us to make our own comics using a number of different methods.

One of the best things about the class was being able to see Josh's sketchbooks in person. He usually works on a bunch of projects at once, over multiple sketchbooks. The pages are as intense as the drawings themselves. Layers of corrections, obsessive hatching, watercolor, and ink carved into the paper. Josh lives and breathes comics, and his artwork reflects that dedication and craft.

I had a really difficult time choosing just a few images to share here from the mountains of work he's created over the years. For more of Josh's drawings and comics, go to his tumblr, portfolio site, and online store. His latest comic is the amazing Raw Power 2.

Drawn Narration

I love these story-driven artworks by Dave Zackin. Of course it's the colors and bold lines that first catch my attention, but then I quickly get caught up in the hand-lettering and drawn narratives. I'd gamble to say that even the most humdrum day in my life would look fascinating if documented like this.

A Nice Cup of Teagle

I've been getting really into comics lately, and that's probably one of the reasons that Jack Teagle is quickly becoming one of my favourite artists.

I'm told that envy and jealousy are terrible and pointless feelings, so I try my best to lock them away when I look at Jack's work. It would be easy to envy the way everything he does is awesome, or be jealous that he completely nails that elusive combination of a simplistic style and bold colours, or cry that it all seems so effortless (although I'm sure it's not). But I've found the best thing to do is let the awesome insanity of his work whisk you away into his little world for a while, and just be glad that it exists.



Jack seems to churn out work at a crazy pace, and he's been updating his tumblr this week with these new paintings. They're part of a show called Lost Plot at Here Gallery in Bristol, UK. The show opens on September 7th and runs right through to October 6th.

Lost Plot also features work from Liam Barrett, Rose Robbins and Simon Daly. If you'll be in or around Bristol in the next month you should definitely check it out.

A Slice of Life

Seo Kim's comics are ones after my own heart. In general, my favorite stories are those that are relatable to the human experience on some level, even if they don’t relate to MY experiences. Does that even make sense? Basically, I like to consume media that shows people living life.

Seo's comics are funny, and reflect someone that has too many ideas in their head, takes on too many projects, and is maybe a little bit stubborn. I especially relate to-much-food-in-hands-forgot-utensils comic. It is a daily occurrence for me.

All available on Seo’s Tumblr.

Can Someone Please Translate This For Me?

Guten Tag! Auf Wiedersehen! That's about as far as my German goes. If only my second-grade German teacher had forced a few more foreign words into my soft young brain. I mean, one day we all made pancakes in class... is that even a German thing? Hmmm.

It's lucky then that my favourite German comic artist Nadine Redlich speaks mostly in pictures! Her drawings are cute, a bit smutty, and only sometimes need a helpful whisper from Google translate. Also her chill new series of "ambient comics" are surprisingly nice to stare at for a while.

Genießen! (that means "enjoy" in German.... I think)

Accomplished

He's in his early twenties and has already amassed an endless amount of drawings, sketches, paintings and comics. I'm not even sure what to post from his flickr archive because I love it all, from the colors in his paintings to his pupil-less people and panel-heavy drawn pages. That was a mouthful, but his work truly is overwhelming. Meet Saman Bemel Benrud.
