Sooterkin by Carisa Swenson for Monsters & Misfits IV

カリーサ・スウェンソンの好奇心溢れる作品作りへの情熱は、彼女が子どもの時に出会った神話やレイ・ハリーハウゼン作品への愛、ティーンのころのヘンソン・ワークショップへの感動、20代のころの巧妙新奇なヤン・シュヴァンクマイエルとブラザーズ・クエイの映画まで多くの源泉から湧き出しています。カリーサが世界的に著名な人形作家ウェンディ・フロウドに師事したとき、その最終的な型が形成されました。ポージングできる人形が彼女の永遠の魂となり、夜も眠れなくなるほどその情熱が彼女を突き動かし、それを鎮めるには唯一彼女の夢を縫い合わせ形にして現実化することだけでした。2006年から、カリーサの作品はSpectrum 17や19を含む数冊の本で特集され、アメリカはもちろん世界中で彼女の作品が展示されています。
Artist Bio
Carisa Swenson’s passion for creating curious creatures springs from many sources—a love of mythological tales and Ray Harryhausen’s creations when she was a child, an appreciative eye for Henson Workshop in her teens, to the weird and wonderful films of Jan Svankmajer and The Brothers Quay in her twenties. When Carisa studied with world-renowned doll artist Wendy Froud, the final die was cast: posable dolls would forever own her soul and trouble her nights, stirring her with a fervor that could only be quelled by stitching and sculpting her dreams into reality. Since 2006, Carisa’s work has been featured in several publications, including Spectrum 17 and 19, and exhibits her dolls throughout the United States as well as internationally.

Amazing and elaborate creatures for Monsters & Misfits IV by Stan Manoukian

MMIIIにユニークな怪物作品を送ってくれたフランスのクリーチャー・メーカー スタン・マヌキアンが、今回は大作をひっさげ来日する。
1969年、フランスのパリに生まれたイラストレーターのスタン・マヌキアンは、長年フランスとアメリカのコミック出版界で過ごしたほか、映画やコマーシャルのデザイナーとして、またストーリーボーダーとして働いた。古いSF、昔のモンスター、エドガー・ランポー、ラブクラフト、メアリー・シェリー、ジュール・ヴェルヌやH・G・ウェルズのロマンチックな物語は、彼の子ども心に奇妙な生き物を描くことを促した。宇宙の生物とクトゥルフの子どもをミックスしたような。2006年にスタンは生き物の世界を創造するトレーニングに、ア・モンスター・ア・デイ(A Monster A Day=1日1匹の怪物)を描き始め、そのプロジェクトはますます大きくなった。古書、辞書、古い版板の影響を受け、彼の父親の情熱的な後押しもあり、古い百科事典の方法で生き物を表現している。インデックス順に記述する方法である。未知の動物学者が新しい宇宙を見つけるように、自然の環境で生き物を表現し、おたがいの交流を描いている。
Artist Bio
Born in 1969, in Paris, France, Stan Manoukian is an illustrator who has spent many years working in the comic book industry in France and the U.S, as well as a designer and storyboarder for movies and commercials. Vintage science fiction, classic monsters, and the romantic writings of Edgar Poe, Lovecraft, Mary Shelley, Jules Verne and Wells filled his childhood and inspired him to spend his time drawing strange creatures - the mixed result of aliens from outer space and Cthulhu's children. In 2006 Stan started to draw "A Monster A Day" as an exercise to develop the world of his creations, and the project grew bigger and bigger. Influenced by old books, dictionaries, antique engraved plates and paintings discovered through his father's passion, he represents his creatures in the manner of old encyclopedias - by indexing and describing them. Like a cryptozoologist discovering a new universe, he represents them in their natural environment and describes their interactions among one another.
