DESCRIPTION

Albert Reyes is a Los Angeles-based San Francisco Art Institute graduate who has developed a style equally influenced by graffiti, comics, and fine art. Among other media, he draws and prints on the inside covers of old books and mixes traditional Mexican imagery, popular culture icons, and political suggestion. He was the cover artist and main interview in Giant Robot 52.

Matt Furie is an Ohio-born, San Francisco-based artist whose richly detailed and hyper colored illustrations and paintings reflect the creative cross breeding of The Neverending Story, unrestrained imagination of The Muppet Show, and humor of ALF. His corruption by popular culture is further complicated--or perhaps enriched--by the energy of BMX culture and anarchy of street art.

Aiyana Udesen was born in Hawaii, went to school at the San Francisco Art Institute with Reyes, and lives in San Francisco, where she gained attention for her "how-to-draw" series of zines, many of which have married her interests in celebrities, animals, and realistic-yet-stylish illustration. Her fine art in both colored pencil and paints share a minimal palate that doesn't distract from the linework yet channels the flair of the '80s without the excess.
