Deadline: Wednesday, Dec. 2, 2009
Calling all Web Comic artists! Dallas Art News would like to highlight established Web Comics in a future article. The theme of the article will be “comics imitating art”, where artists re-create well known works of art using their Web Comic character(s) and style. The article, which will mostly be the images created by the comic artists and links to their sites, will appear during the first week of December 2009.
Dallas Art News would like to feature at least a dozen Web Comic artists. The only limitations will be space (limited to one square) and content (must be suitable for all audiences). Otherwise, we just want to see some great comics representing famous works of art.
The simplest example would be a comic character as Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa or Vincent van Gogh with bandaged ear. Contemporary art could also be used. The sky’s the limit.
An even better art work selection could be an iconic work from one of the museums currently covered by Dallas Art News.
