Illustration // Saturday, July 28, 2012
Anne Emond is a writer, illustrator, and drawer of comics living in Brooklyn. 'I graduated in 2010 with an MFA in illustration from the School of Visual Arts. I like drawing potted plants, stacks of books, skeletons, little old ladies, and people looking generally pensive and melancholy, except when I'm drawing comics and then it's people (usually me!) looking ridiculous. My artistic heroes include Saul Steinberg, George Grosz, Edward Gorey, Maurice Sendak, and Lynda Barry.'

Narrative Illustrations by Patrick O’Leary

Illustration // Thursday, July 26, 2012
"I started out a few years ago after graduating from Loughborough University with a BA in Illustration and have since worked for the likes of Radio Times, Wired and Anorak.
