PeculiarBliss Magazine 10
Showcasing humor in work does not come easy for all, but for some illustrators it’s second nature. It’s great to see when an artist’s personality shines through in their work. It adds more character and enhances the meaning.
In this issue we explore this theme and interview Ryan Chapman and Jenni Sparks. Ryan has a really sharp style and manages to add a bit of lighthearted humor when necessary to his pieces. He has done work for the New York Times, Google and Grove Made, among others. Jenni’s work is an extension of her personality. Her “Music Monday” series often takes a humorous turn on her blog, and her portfolio is filled with expressive quotes and characters.
Two and half years ago PeculiarBliss started with a simple idea of featuring artists that have a unique approach to their work, with a theme everyone can contribute to and partake in. Today, we are at issue 10, and we couldn’t have imagined reaching this point.
As we celebrate this milestone, we are also taking a hiatus from the magazine. It has been a wonderful experience exchanging ideas with everyone. Thanks to all who have contributed. We greatly appreciate your support. Thanks to all of the featured artists that have made this experience even more amazing. Special thanks to Shannon and Hannah for all their hard work on the magazine. We’ll be back at some point in the future and hope you’ll join us on this creative adventure again!
