Juho Sihvonen: Maalattujen tähtien alla

Maalattujen tähtien alla on sarjakuva Joel Lehtosesta (1881–1934).

Sarjakuva kertoo siveltimenvedoin tarinan huutolaispojasta, josta kasvoi maailmaa nähnyt kirjailija. Joel Lehtosen repivä suhde Sylvia Avellanin kanssa, josta jälkipolville on jäänyt kertomaan heidän vilkas kirjeenvaihtonsa, luo raamit traagiselle kuvaukselle menestyksestä ja murtumisesta.

Joel Lehtosen tunnetuimpiin teoksiin kuuluvat Putkinotko, Kerran kesällä ja Kuolleet omenapuut. Putkinotkon esikuvana on Inhan-tila sekä Savonlinnan ympäristö. Joel Lehtonen oli myös tuottelias kääntäjä, kriitikko ja lehtimies.

Juho Sihvonen (s. 1989) on savonlinnalainen kuvataiteilija. Maalattujen tähtien alla on hänen kahdeksas sarjakuva-albuminsa.

She’s desperate to finish high school and escape her sad divorced mom, her volatile little brother, and worst of all, her great group of friends…who don’t understand Morgan at all. Because really, Morgan’s biggest secret is that she has a lot of secrets, including the one about wanting to kiss another girl.

Then one night, Morgan is saved from drowning by a mysterious girl named Keltie. The two become friends and suddenly life on the island doesn’t seem so stifling anymore.

Brian Blomerth: Brian Blomerth’s Bicycle Day

Illustrator, musician and self-described “comic stripper” Brian Blomerth has spent years combining classic underground art styles with his bitingly irreverent visual wit in zines, comics, and album covers.

With Brian Blomerth’s Bicycle Day, the artist has produced his most ambitious work to date: a historical account of the events of April 19, 1943, when Swiss chemist Albert Hofmann ingested an experimental dose of a new compound known as lysergic acid diethylamide and embarked on the world’s first acid trip.

Combining an extraordinary true story told in journalistic detail with the artist’s gritty, timelessly Technicolor comix style, Brian Blomerth’s Bicycle Day is a testament to mind expansion and a stunningly original visual history.
