We Love Webcomics | Aug 6 - Sep 11, 2011 | Double Punch Gallery, San Francisco
Hey all! Just wanted to promote the gallery show I'm curating. Hope you can make it, it is full of amazing artists! Opening Night is tomorrow at 7pm. xoxo
Piximix is proud to present We Love Webcomics, a group art show celebrating the art of webcomics at the Double Punch Gallery in San Francisco, running from August 6 to September 10, 2011. A wide assortment of popular webcomic artists will be providing prints and original art and merchandise for display and sale at this special event.
The world of comics is changing. In the past decade, the web has exploded with thousands upon thousands of comics in an absolutely staggering range of styles and subjects. Webcomics have created a rich new space for both artists and readers alike.Whether it's a seasoned comic artist looking to take a chance on personal and experimental work or a new artist who simply wants to share their work with friends, the internet has lowered the barriers for comic publishing and allowed creators to release their work quickly and easily directly to readers. With this ease of publishing and unparalleled freedom of creative expression, the browser is quickly replacing the newspaper and publications as the source for the latest must-read comics. Add to that the ability for readers to spread their favorites like wildfire across the internet and you have a powerful environment for independent content to thrive.It's an exciting time to be following comics and we're thrilled to be able to present such a talented and diverse selection of artists and their work in a unique gallery setting.
Located within San Francisco's premier designer toy and character art destination, Double Punch, We Love Webcomics is a fun and compelling snapshot of the online comic scene.
