Let’s end the week with a little beauty, eh?
Like many of the cartoonists spotlighted here, Rosemary Valero-O’Connell is an up and coming MCAD grad who draws in a style infused with classic illustration. She’s repped for art by Out of Step Arts where you can buy several beautiful prints. She has a longer work called Black Sun Rising that she’s been working on for a while, and she’s the artist on Mariko Tamaki’s Laura Dean Keeps Breaking up on Me due from First Second in 2018. AND she drew an issue of Lumberjanes. Definitely a name to look out for.
Today here are two short comics.
Phylum is a short horror comic about a woman who eats something that she finds in her garden.
They both lovely and if you kick around her website you’ll find a few more short comics. But you’ll definitely be seeing more of her work in the years to come.
Heidi MacDonald is the founder and editor in chief of The Beat. In the past, she worked for Disney, DC Comics, Fox and Publishers Weekly. She can be heard regularly on the More To Come Podcast. She likes coffee, cats and noble struggle.
