Written and illustrated by Blair Drawson. Designed by Shari Spier. An Odd Sea is a liberty-taking retelling of Homer’s classic. Blair turns a satirical eye on war, sex, identity, technology, misbehaving youth, and the follies of all-powerful gods. The novel is liberally illustrated throughout with Blair’s powerful images. The EPub book, An Odd Sea will be available early September on Apple’s iTune store in the iBook section. Watch for it.

Radical Illustrators was a one-off issue of Illustrators Magazine No. 38 edited by George Snow and Robert Mason and published by the Association of Illustrators in England in 1981. This groundbreaking issue of Illustrators Magazine captured a moment in the art of illustration when young reactionary illustrators were rejecting the straightforward narrative approaches of the popular mainstream press and breaking new ground with radically new visual styles that have long since become the norm in illustration.
