Colossal says, “Graphic designer and illustrator Irma Gruenholz toiled away in Madrid as an ad agency art director before shifting gears and launching a freelance career in illustration. While she’s perfectly capable working with pencils and paints, it was her decision to work in 3D that really set things in motion. Gruenholz painstakingly builds each illustration with hand-sculpted modelling clay before lighting and photographing it, giving each piece a beautiful sense of depth. Lately her work has been popping up in books, magazines, and advertisements around the world and you can see more on Facebook and over on Behance. If this tickled your brain, you might also dig Shintaro Ohata.”

MTV talked to me about my new @marvel book ROCKET RACCOON! http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/1723065/rocket-raccoon-guardians-of-the-galaxy-marvel-comics-skottie-young.jhtml?utm=share_twitter
Today is the birthday of one of my favorite comic artists - Cliff Chiang. I’m lucky to own two pieces by him.
Wonder Woman, of course
And a combo Batgirl and Oracle.
I’ve met Cliff a few times and he always a joy to speak with. So let’s all wish him a happy day and let’s revel in some…
Amtrak has begun offering “writers’ residencies” to, well, writers – long roundtrip rides aboard Amtrak trains dedicated solely for the purpose of writing.
After New York City-based writer Jessica Gross took the first “test-run” residency, traveling from NYC to Chicago and back, Amtrak confirmed that it is indeed planning to turn the writers’ residencies into an established, long-term program, sending writers on trains throughout its network of routes.
First, let’s get it out of the way: The Wire is 100 percent on board with this idea. Pun intended, because we’re writers. We love writing, and we love trains, and we love them both together…
This is literally a dream come true to me.
