Lozano, Toby Leigh and Zhang Liang.

    A vivid exploration of peculiar art, Off the Wall is a funhouse tour through the darkly comedic minds of more than twenty-five artists from around the world. From representational to barely recognizable, the illustrations and comics showcased here never fail to evoke the special blend of humor and horror that the subconscious mind finds so irresistible. Talking pets, repurposed pop-culture icons and troubled eroticism are only a few of the odd themes you'll find recurring within this one-of-a-kind collection. Short interviews with the artists allow a peek behind the curtain, and offer insight into the creative processes that lead to such off-kilter, unsettling and strangely compelling art.

    Peanuts A Tribute to Charles M. Schulz HC (2015 Boom Studios) 1-1ST

    1st printing. Cover by Scott Newman. What's To Love: No one can deny the cultural impact of Charles M. Schulz's Peanuts, and it has been a singular honor for us to be able to continue his legacy. In 2015, Peanuts celebrates its 65th anniversary, so we thought there was no better way to recognize Snoopy, Charlie Brown, and the rest of the gang than to invite some of the world's best-known names in comics, children's books, comic strips, cartoons, and webcomics to come together and show their love for Schulz. What It Is: Peanuts: A Tribute to Charles M. Schulz is a giant love letter from creators new and old from comic strips to webcomics, children's books to comic books.
