Featured Artist: Madelen Foss

Today’s featured artist is illustrator Madelen Foss from Norway. She makes eye catching bright and neon pop surrealist creations. What I enjoy the most about her illustrations is how some have sinister elements to them that are hard to notice straight off the bat. She is also not afraid to combine random elements or patterns together and it really works. Her illustrations just pop off the page and have a really 3D quality to them. That might be something she picked up while studying animations, regardless it’s very effective and her work is stunning.  You can see more of her work below and further information on where to find her.

Zine of the Month: Bablien

I debated whether or not to make Bablien the zine of the month for March. Not because it isn’t awesome (because it is) but mostly because it’s not available anymore. Bablien was a zine put together by Catface and Brett Manning with the tag line “a collection of alien babe artworks” that came out in December of last year. Each artist that contributed was given 10 copies that they could sell and I was lucky enough to grab one up before they sold out. I mostly bought it for Victor as he is obsessed with aliens so I was really surprised by how much I loved it. There were nods to X-Files (a few too many), Star Trek and the great comic Saga and each artist brought a unique perspective to the alien babe. My favourites were by Brett Manning, Natali Martinez, and Madelen & Natalie Floss. Other artist featured Wishcandy, L0ll3, Electra Sinclair, Donya Todd and more. It doesn’t appear they will reprint it either which is a shame but it’s such a great zine I couldn’t resist sharing it, and perhaps they will reprint it in the future or put a 2nd edition.
