    Default Between Heaven and Hellboy: Alternative Artists Take On Comics

    The art gallery I started a couple of years ago is having a comic book themed art show coming up in July. We're continuing to get bigger and bigger talent involved, and more impressive sponsors as well. Here is the Facebook event link below. Contact Xavier through the link if you're interested in participating or would like more info.

    Press Release For: Between Heaven and Hell: Underground, Alternative and Urban Artists Take on Comics, Superheroes and Super-villains.

    Urban Light Studios presents a Kevin Law production. Curated by David Champeau (Booty Resin, MC/Producer/Event Management), Xavier Lopez Jr. (P.I. Culture Blogs, Artist, Echo Echo Gallery) and Zachary Sofia (Rock the Terminal, Art Promotion)

    Between Heaven and Hell: Underground, Alternative and Urban Artists Take on Comics, Superheroes and Super-villains.

    July 13th, 2012 from 6pm to close at Urban Light Studios, the Greenwood Collective and the Echo Echo Gallery.

    Come join us at Urban Light Studios on Second Friday, July 13th from 6-close for �Between Heaven and Hell: Underground, Alternative and Urban Artists Take on Comics, Superheroes and Super-villains.� Join us as we celebrate the best alternative artists from Seattle, California and Europe as they come together to take on the forces of good and evil in an art show dealing with all aspects of comics, Superheroes and Super-villains. This group exhibition will focus on an alternative interpretation of all things that come from the four-color world of comics�a theme that has a long tradition in the art world. This will be a huge show, with artists hailing from as far away as Italy and California�but will have as its primary focus Seattle�s best alternative artists; including Augie Pagan (who designed our awesome poster image), Ego, Carl Faulkner, Ryan �Henry� Ward, Larkin Cypher, Margaret Organ-Kean, Kaja and Phil Foglio, Damon Conklin, Carlos Aguilar, Xavier Lopez Jr. and others (including, possibly Jeff �Weirdo� Jacobson [a full list follows]) and will include a hugely esteemed list of judges, including Greg Lundgren of The Hideout, Rob Orr of Comic Booked.com and Larry Reid of Fantagraphics Comics and Books and others from local art galleries.

    In total, We plan to have approximately 100 of the best alternative artists in this show and we have created a coalition between art stores like Utrecht Art Supply Stores (who will be donating gift certificates to give away as awards to artists at the show,) comic book shops (including Zanadu and Dreamstrand Comics) (who are also donating space to put up posters and sharing toys and signed comics to give away and to raffle,) and we even have a few comic book websites covering the events of the show�Comic Booked and Comics Bulletin, we will have many posters around the city and even more postcards�but I won�t bore you with that�what I am trying to say is that we are working hard to make this a very big show and an awesome introduction to what we are all working on in the alternative art scene here in Seattle.

    List of artists:

    Artists involved include Aaron Winnenberg, Adric Hicks, Alexandria, Sandlin, Andrew Miller, Angelina Villalobos, Augie Pagan, Braden Duncan, Brandon �Narboo� Baker, Brian White, Bryan K.

    Yeah, Chris Sheridan is an amazing artist and an equally amazing nice guy.

    Working on getting more info here, but I've taken a back seat in my management of the space. I'll get it posted as soon as I get more.

    Here's the flier by Augie Pagan -
