Featured Artist: Brett Manning Illustrator
Many would agree that we've entered an era where women and fluid creative concepts and all forms of art are "taking over", independently and together. This can validated with unconventional female protagonists gaining and regaining popularity in comic books and action films. Independent comic artists like Brett Manning make uniqueness in female empowerment laced with bubble gum esoteric-ism an alluring indie cartoon cocktail. This pastelly approach to pop occultism and comics speaks to a growing number of multi-cultural spooky-by-nature gen -y and gen-x specific inhabitants of planet Earth.
Her most recent works, Weirdo addresses in the simplest of words the unique and often times quiet and reflective, yet flamboyantly adorned path of the publicly labeled, though simultaneously self-proclaimed weirdo.
Many of Manning's works preach individualism and the beauty in oddness and unlikely storytelling, and the nontarnishable charm of dainty pastel illustrations, and simplistic, endearing storytelling.
As a collaboration with RageOn, Brett is now creating super cute graphic tees, tanks and sweats for weirdos of all shapes and sizes.
