What did 2010 look like for Mike McGinn? We're dedicating the cover, and centerfold, of our first print edition of the year to answer that question--as interpreted by five prominent local comic artists. Since it's hard to read a centerfold on a web site, we'll be posting the images to the Daily Weekly. We posted a sneak peek last night - and here's the rest of the good from artists Jessixa Bagley and Pat Moriarity.
Jessixa Bagley is originally from Portland, Oregon. She graduated from Cornish College of the Arts where in 2004 with a BFA in painting and printmaking. She has been working in comics since 2001, starting off self publishing her own mini comics and zines. She has since been published in various online sites, newspapers and magazines, such as The Stranger, Chicago Reader, The Comics Journal, Nickelodeon Magazine, as well as having a weekly comic strip in The Seattle Weekly from 2007-2008. Jessixa has also volunteered at 826 Seattle Tutoring Center in Greenwood teaching comics. Her fine art has been featured in New American Paintings Magazine and received a GAP Grant from local arts organization Artist Trust in 2009. Jessixa lives in Seattle with her husband and her cat and is currently working on her first graphic novel.
Award winning Port Orchard artist Pat Moriarity has been drawing cartoons and illustrations for Seattle publications like the Rocket, Stranger, Washington Law & Politics, and Seattle Weekly since the 1990's. He currently contributes to MINESHAFT magazine and teaches the occasional class at the Seattle Art Institute.
