Artist and comic author Chelsea Mann was one of my stops at Planet Comicon 2017 in Kansas City. Chelsea had many of her art prints available, as well as two of her comic books, "St. Martin Song" and "Let Me Live".
Chelsea's artwork is extraordinary. If you browse though the artwork on her website http://philosoficate.com/ you'll see a wide spectrum of work. All of it is recognizable as being comic-style, but within that artistic domain Chelsea experiments and explores through color, detail, expanse, precision, energy, and subtlety. In her Gallery section, I'm drawn to the middle image on the third row, the old home on a snowy hill at night. There is a sense of peace in this work, and to me it evokes a feeling of a quiet Christmas night.
I bought Chelsea's two comics while at Comicon. Both of these are excellent stories brought to life by Chelsea's artwork. The storytelling is vivid through her detailed, flowing, exacting composition. Both stories are tales of imagination and spirituality. "Let Me Live" is especially beautiful throughout its 42 pages in its use of changing color schemas as the story moves along.
Last year I found a wonderful comic artist, Megan Fitts, at Planet Comicon who would up designing the artwork for my annual Christmas comps. Chelsea's web page has information about commissions, so if anyone is needing something extra special for your annual comps, maybe Chelsea can work up something great!
