i’m back! sorry that took forever folks. i took a blog hiatus to work on my zine! i’ve been drawing/writing so much but didn’t want to put any on here since it’s all going in my zine! and what’s fun about putting out a zine if everyone has already seen it all =0)

here’s a different thing. upon moving to chicago i tried to think of some quick ways to make cash by drawing. the main thing i came up with is pet portraits! i did some of rover and stella and realized that other people might like them too, so via craigslist i’ve been offering my illustration services. it’s been fun so far.

if YOU would like a pet portrait, click on the flyer below for a larger version to see all the deets:

i’m having an art opening at charm city art space tomorrow night, july 18th, from 7-10pm. since they expanded artscape this year, baltimore’s big art festival, it will be right in the thick of things! while you’re out getting hot and sticky, perusing arts vendors, stop by and say hello! the work is printed big and framed, much different from seeing it online. i’ll be selling cheap prints and zines too and there will also be vegan refreshments!

located at 1729 n. maryland ave.

my zine

June 15, 2008

the thing that really got me drawing cartoons was my zine, [list.]. i started writing my zine during my freshman year in college, after my partner, daniel, convinced me to go for it. he had made a zine throughout high school and i had always wanted to, so with his encouragement i went for it. [list.] started out with a traditional collaged, cut and paste zine aesthetic. daniel also made a zine during this time called ‘bike.’ we were all about the one word zine titles i guess. eventually, we decided to do a split zine

daniel is actually a pretty amazing comic artist but he focuses on photography instead, and he’s really amazing at that too. here’s an example of one of the drawings he did in that split zine.

daniel had always drawn some scratchy comics in his, and i was really into reading scratchy comics, so we decided to make a comics edition of both of our zines for the split. little did i know, this would transform the future of [list.] zine forever! from then on, i threw out the cut and paste style and illustrated all of my lists with comics. as a result, my zine became way more popular and i had even more fun making it.

here’s an evolution of the ramsey character and my drawing skills. i made this for the new drawing zine i just put out. details to come.

nana grizol at the frisby house

June 6, 2008

another flyer for a show at our house! this time i asked my roommates what our upcoming flyer should have on it and kate and jordan both said ‘something summery, like swimming or something!’ so this is what i came up with. on the ankles of all the kids is our frisby house tattoo =0) jordan and i both have it already. the other housemates are planning to get it.

zine procrastination

here are some excerpts from my last issue of [list.] zine. it was list #11.
