PIQUA — If you enjoy comic strips, you won’t want to miss Aaron Lindeman, local illustrator, at the Taste of the Arts event on Friday, May 19.
Lindeman will be demonstrating his work at Can’t Stop Running from 6-8 pm. His display will show the process of doing a digital drawing and he will also be doing pencil and ink drawings on site.
“I have my own web comic, ‘The Fisherman,’ and have collaborated with others on several other comic projects,” said Lindeman. “I have been doing my illustrations professionally for four years, but have been doing various kinds of art for most of my life.
“Classes at Edison have been very valuable to me as I advanced through my career,” he added. “I can do specific drawings if folks have a request and I also do logo work and occasionally dabble in painting.”
Lindeman has two comics for sale: “Star Pass,” a comic about roller derby, and an issue of “The Fisherman” with the first chapter of his web comic. He will also feature poster prints, notecards and sketch cards for sale.
One of Lindeman’s pieces will also be featured in “The Thing Artbook: An Illustrated Celebration of the John Carpenter Masterpiece according to Lindeman.” To see more of Lindeman’s work, go to fishermancomic.com.
In addition, Logan Rogers, a freelance graphic designer and illustrator in the Dayton area, will be demonstrating acrylic painting at Barclay’s that evening, according to Lorna Swisher, executive director of Mainstreet Piqua.
Rogers’ resume includes creative projects for presentations, brochures, advertisements, catalogs and much more. “I will be painting that evening, but would love to share my love of other projects with anyone who comes into the store,” said Rogers, whose artwork can be vied on his website, www.loganrogers.net.
