Take A Break With Strangely Katie's Resftul Tea Dragons
New Zealand illustrator Strangely Katie struck on a brilliant idea when she conjured up her first batch of tea dragons as a set of "doodles." These quirky beasts capture the essential qualities of different types of tea --- floral, smoky, restful, robust --- mixed up with touches of real-life animals like dogs, cats, otters, and anteaters. Something about these docile and domesticated creatures clearly resonates with dedicated tea-drinkers everywhere, because Katie's tea dragon posts on Tumblr have racked up hundreds of shares and likes, and Katie is now working on a short comic that will allow readers to explore the world of the tea dragons.
Best Art Ever (This Week) - 06.13.14
We make a regular practice at ComicsAlliance of spotlighting particular artists or specific bodies of work, as well as the special qualities of comic book storytelling, but because cartoonists, illustrators and their fans share countless numbers of great pinups, fan art and other illustrations on sites like Flickr, Tumblr, DeviantArt and seemingly infinite art blogs that we’ve created Best Art Ever (This Week), a weekly depository for just some of the pieces of especially compelling artwork that we come across in our regular travels across the Web. Some of it’s new, some of it’s old, some of it’s created by working professionals, some of it’s created by future stars, some of it’s created by talented fans, awnd some of it’s endearingly silly. All of it is awesome.
