Matthew Sheean (Art '06, MFA '13) just published a cover for the popular series Adventure Time. The zine is Adventure Time #19 published by kaBOOM! Studios. The comic is semi-canonical with the critically acclaimed Adventure Time Tv series story. Each issue includes two comics: one lead story written by Ryan North and drawn in the style of the cartoon by Paroline and Lamb; and a second story made by an invited indie artist and drawn in their own style. Matthew created "Cover C" for the September 2013 issue.
Exerpts by Matthew along with alum Malachi Ward (Art '06) were published in the most recent issue of Prophet #39, written by Brandon Graham. The engaging and distinguished Prophet comic series shows how the distinct perspectives of indie artists can bring immense depth to a superhero story.Check out a review of the issue here.
Brian Rush (MFA '10) was recently hired on to the art and design faculty at Trinity Western University. He is in several ongoing group shows, the first being an experimental group exhibition, Imperfect Memory: A Compendium that explores manifestations of "imperfect symmetry"—a phenomenon emerging at the hazy border of two more familiar concepts, symmetry and asymmetry. Curated by Sara Black and Karsten Lund, the show is up at Columbia College Chicago from October until January 2014.
The second show is an exhibit as part of the BY/FOR Grunewald Residency at the Sammamish Presbytyrian Church in Sammamish, WA. Rush has been in residency this past year at the Grunewald Guild, a ministry project that patrons artists.
