Hannah Means Shannon from bleedingcool.com reviewed her favorite discoveries from last week's MoccaFest, the Society of Illustrator's annual convention held in New York last week. Here's is an excerpt from her write-up, which is worth checking out. She gives a nod to several stand-out illustrators and cartoonists.
Glynnis Fawkes is a contributor of comics to parenting websites and takes a walk on the wild side of mythology on a regular basis. She’s a world traveler steeped in ancient history and as a young parent of two kids, their antics become natural subject matter for the flip side of her comics production. Here we have a “kids stories” anthology “The Story of the Cheese” and her large-format mini excerpt of “The Decameron” by Boccaccio. Fawkes line work is so graceful that even the most earthy conversation with her kids becomes poetic while remaining strongly grounded in modern life. Unsurprisingly, this new kids stories collection features WINTER WINTER WINTER in her native Vermont since this past winter has been so brutal and I could really relate. When she dives into the Decameron she captures my mind with her flowing colors and innovative composition formats. Her distinctive and honest narrative voice will woo anyone who comes in contact with it.
