Meet two artists in the “Comics, Cartoons and Caricatures” Exhibit
Both artists are extremely prolific in their work although their paths and styles are very different. This is the 6th and final ‘meet the artists’ entry for the March 2013 exhibit.
Phoebe Gloeckner: Was interested in cartooning from an early age; her father was a commercial illustrator, and through her mother she met several of the San Francisco underground comics figures who were to have a profound influence upon her, including Robert Crumb, Bob Armstrong, Aline Kominsky, Bill Griffith, and Diane Noomin.
Phoebe studied medical illustration at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas. She has lived in San Francisco; Dallas; Aix-en-Provence; Paris; Prague; Setauket, New York; and Ann Arbor, Michigan, where she now teaches at the University of Michigan, in the School of Art and Design.
Phoebe received an Inkpot Award in 2000 and was the recipient of a Guggenheim fellowship in 2008.
You can learn more about Phoebe’s work on her website where she share both her comic work and medical illustration.
Aaron Warner: Has created ground-breaking cartoon features for newspapers and magazines worldwide.
For over ten years, the critically acclaimed and wildly popular Adventures of Aaron comic strip was read by over six million newspaper subscribers, spawning two comic book series with Image, Adventures of Aaron and Aaron Strips, which garnered a Reuben Award nomination from the National Cartoonist Society.
Working with his wife, Angie, at their “Cartoon Studios” business, they create features for corporate clients or individuals, and provide illustrations for other creators, including Jonathan Rand’s, “Freddie Fernortner: Fearless First Grader.”
Aaron’s collected works are available at Amazon.com. Past projects include: Married With Children: Kelly Goes to Kollege #3 (Now Comics), Bulk Comix (Chiasmus), The One (Aazurn Publishing).
