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?
Found some awesome art out in the wild today!  The graffiti artists around here are stepping up their game lately.  The traincars have never looked better :)

Think of it the way you would a cat leaving a dead mouse on your pillow.  You may not appreciate the gift, but we do it out of love.  Also we may have hidden some around your studio good luck finding them all.

TERRIBLE ZINES!

So today I took part in the creation of some of the worst/best zines ever conceived.  There was the Unattractive Pokemon zine-

These exquisite masterpieces were contributed to by myself, Alex Bergman, Rachel Topka, Olivia Johnson, Mayme Thompson, Dawson Walker, Alice Woods, Nicole Stamm, and Jei Gross.  Check out their blogs I swear we actually draw better than this.

And of course, special thanks to our muse Draco and his fancy hat.

visenya-the-dragon asked: Original meme: Once you get this you have to say 5 nice things about yourself publicly and then send it to 10 of your favourite followers (not back to me, I did it already). Thinking good thoughts about yourself is hard but it will make you feel better so give it a go, for the sake of spreading positivity! (◠‿◠✿)

Thanks visenya, you’re a sweetheart!  I doodled my answers because reasons.

pcapitated asked: omg your pokemon/doctor who stickers are so ACCURATE

Thank you!  It’s almost embarrassing how much time my nerd buddies and I spent arguing about which pokemon fits each doctor.  We actually came up with a great idea for Tom Baker, I really should get around to drawing that… 

Hey, so remember that time I got bored and drew the last three Doctors as pokemon?  Well it’s been a while, but in honor of Peter Capaldi’s imminent reign as everyone’s favorite Time Lord (which I’m super stoked for, btw) I thought I’d give him a pokemon persona too.  

And of course, they’re all stickers because what’s the point in drawing something this freakin’ nerdy without being able to slap it onto every random surface and bother everyone with it’s existence?

A nice hard copy of this and many other sketches of mine can be obtained in The Deitch Files, published by La Mano press.


I’m the current intern at La Mano and helped assemble the last of the edition of these, and the prints are friggin’ GORGEOUS.  Go check it out, guys!

Here it is- the first three pages of my new comic, A Can of Nothing!  If you want to know what happens next, I’ll be printing and assembling books this week.  Copies will be available for sale at this year’s Springcon, where I’ll be tabling once again with the lovely Leigh Luna.  I’m also working on setting up a web store, so I’ll have some available for the non-Minnesotans soon too!  

VICTORY!

I know it’s been a bit quiet on my little corner of the interwebs lately, but that’s because I was working on this- my senior project for college.  And guess what?  IT’S FINALLY DONE.  YAAAAAAAAAAY!  I’ve just finished cleaning up the pages and they’re all ready to be scanned, printed and turned into a complete 16 page minicomic.  

I’m so excited to share this with everyone, and I’ll have more to show of it very soon!
