Alex McLeod

Here is just a little taste of Alex's work. It is stunning! You have a few chances to see it in person, which I recommend doing. Alex is really nice, funny, talented guy. Read the interview I did with him to see what I mean.

Chris Kuzma

Chris is really good at what he does...that's why I had to post more then one image.
He is really nice guy, that makes wicked art. Also he is apart of the Wowee Zonk collective, which is another thing you have to check out (if you like comics, as much as I do) Read the interview we did to see more of his awesome work.

I found out about Allison Manch through the Design for mankind website. Her subject matter for her art/crafting is totally my taste. It really is not traditional embroidery...which I like. Hopefully you will check out more of her neat work.

Marta Chudolinska

Marta is a good friend of mine, and is such a great artist. She does so many different things, printmaking, bookbinding, painting, drawing and makes zines! She is such a crafty lady.
Keep an eye out for her book that is coming out in fall ( I will let you know when does come out).
Read the adorable interview she did. And check out her blog too.
