Sophia Foster-Dimino Draws ‘The City of Lost Children’ And Anthropomorphic Rayguns [Art]
I first met Sophia Foster-Dimino at San Francisco Zine Fest this past year, and quickly became fascinated with her carefully composed scenes, where parallel lines give a simultaneous sense of structure and surreality, and cleanly laid out objects invite viewers to speculate on the lives of her subjects. That thoughtful approach to space stands out in her comics as well.
Foster-Dimino works as a Google Doodler and posts her illustrations, comics, and animations (including the wonderful gif she made for SF Zine Fest) on Tumblr. I highly recommend her Antiques Roadshow comic, which highlights her strong use of layout and also capacity for marvelously inventive weirdness. You can also watch her spotlight panel from SF Zine Fest on YouTube, where she talks about her influences and her development as an artist.
