Myah Bailey

Here are some noir comic book-esque pieces from Denver artist Myah Bailey. Apparently each series is comprised of parts of an ongoing story with intersecting characters/themes. Because I don't know these stories, I'm going to make them up.


Let's say the first one, The Fortune Teller's Fate, is about when you see that bastard your friend, Jen, is dating at the Beauty Bar with some blonde hoe and all you can do is stare while the crow in your hair, after having pointed in their direction, whispers in your ear, "um, wtf; Johnny is such a douche."

And the second one, Vitality from Poison, is about Lori, dem bitch, who consistently says things like, "stfu, Kate, no one cares" and "that dress makes your ass look fat." Amazingly, every time she says things like this, a shiny spider grows in her hair. 

No? Maybe?

Noah Van Sciver - Faces of Math

Noah Van Sciver's a cartoonist and comic book artist who's whipped up some sweet schtuff (check out Blammo) -- including this print sold at Kilgore books.  

Maybe it's just me, but by the time I scan over these balding-headed, big-eared, freckled-faced every(wo)mans offering up their workaday boasts, my chest tightens a tad. Is that an onion you're holding? I feel feelings.  



The Knew - Man Monster

The long-haired straight-forward rocker dudes in Denver band the Knew make up, "the Garage band everyone wishes they had the balls to form." Their music attacks your eardrums with horn sections, fuzzed-out guitars, synthesizers, layers upon layers of drums and guitar. It's fun, gritty, and fuzzy-loud ... a load of buckshot in your tailfeathers.
