Females in Comics and Animation

CREATED ON SEPTEMBER 12, 2017
IN HONOLULU

Women have been underrepresented in literature, comics, and animation.  In the Pacific, traditional indigenous ideals of female beauty have been marred by distorted western representations of exoticism, objectification, and sexualization. This team of creatives shares their thoughts about this problem, the work being done to change this, and their representations of ancestral female heroines and contemporary female superheroes in their comics and animated films. Michael CeballosMary Hattori, and Christopher Caravalho share.

The Art of Abstract Comics

BY KYM TABULO
@ VOL 18 ON AUG 24, 2016

Kym Tabulo works in the field of abstract comics.  This is an emerging 21st century genre that combines the conventions of traditional comics with abstract painting.  Kym creates works on canvas and paper using a range of formats, scales, techniques and media. Her pioneering work experiments with the idea that dynamic, organic movement and growth can be conveyed in a single image or a sequence of images, to create a sense of movement that also suggests the passage of time. Her process is a combination of intuitive and planned art making. The intention of her work is to generate a visual rhythm rather than tell a story, however others may wish to invent their own story or find a theme.

Finding My Cultural Voice in Comics

BY RUDY VASQUEZ
@ VOL 16 ON JUN 29, 2017

By day Rudy Vasquez is the mild mannered Marketing and Communications Manager for El Paso’s Downtown Management District (DMD)…but by night Rudy pursues his amazing passion for comic animation artistry.

Rudy has worked for independent comic book publishers as a work-for-hire sequential artist for years, but has not published any creator owned work. Now, the artist is laying the foundation for a creator owned project that is an expression of his own voice. In this journey, he has discovered a culturally rich context that reflects life on the border more so, than life in a completely make believe world.
