Greetings, Evildoers.

Well hey there! I'm Jen Silverman, I'm a comic art major at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, and I like making stuff. Pretty stuff. Because really, who doesn't like stuff?

Okay, I normally stick to art-related things on here…but maybe I feel like rambling about my hair today.  For those of you who don’t know me, my favorite hobby is doing what I call “hair experiments”.  I’ve had all sorts of cuts and styles, and my hair’s been almost every color of the rainbow.  Except white.  It was the only color I’ve never quite managed, mostly because my hair is naturally very dark and lightening it to that extent without it all falling out was gonna be a big job.  It took over two months of slow, incremental bleaching/toning (which is why I was rockin’ that hideous bleach blonde color at Springcon and Wizard World) but as of today I have won the battle!  So now I have to gloat because I feel like the friggin’ Khaleesi.  >:D

And then I immediately dyed part of it purple because I’m a big dumb baby who likes pretty colors.

Okay, back to art now.  Hope you guys don’t mind the random personal post, but if any of you would like to hear more about my hair experiments from time to time let me know!

CROSSHATCHING HECK YEAH

This is the first half of a short story I’ve been working on between other projects for a while now.  This monstrosity has taken quite a bit of time because of the crosshatching, but I really want to finish it once I’m done with my current freelance project.  Just thought I’d share in the meantime :D

I made a thing for a logo contest and I hope she likes it ahhhhhhhhh

These are character designs for a series of short stories I’ll be illustrating!  I’ll get you guys more details as the project progresses, but if you’re curious then please do check out the lovely author I’m working with, Conrad Zero.  

Springcon 2014 was a success!  Thanks to Leigh and Liz for being awesome tablemates, and to everyone who came out for being so lovely to us.  

And to the new followers I’ve gained over the weekend- hi guys!  It was awesome meeting you all, I do hope you’ll join me on future comic adventures to come.  :D

Hey guys, for those who don’t know- Springcon is this weekend!  If you’re in the area, come stop by the Minnesota State Fair grounds and say hi!  I’ll be selling copies of all my minis, stickers (including the new Doctor Who/Pokemon mashup), as well as a few prints.  And if that’s not enough incentive, I’ll be sitting with two lovely and talented ladies- Leigh Luna and Liz Glein!  It’s gonna be awesome, hope to see some of you there :D

Did one of you ladies draw/ink/create this? Like an idiot, I forgot to have it signed after I bought it. (Thanks in advance!)


Nope, that’s one of Mandie Brasington's prints!  She's gonna be at her table again tomorrow, so if you're planning on coming back for day two I know she'd be happy to sign it for you.  Actually, I just picked up one of her new comics today and forgot to bug her into doodling on it for me.  We'll both have to go back and bother her tomorrow, eh?  :)

You are so kind for answering. I actually love your work too. Got your business card!!! Are any of you going to FallCon?

Aww, thank you dear that’s so sweet!  I’ll definitely be at Fallcon (I love the MCBA conventions, the folks who come to those shows are wonderful and there are so many lovely, talented folks to share table space with).  I can’t speak for anyone else, but I suspect most of us who are tabling this weekend will be back in October.
