This month’s featured artists are Richard Crowson and Skyler Lovelace. Skyler uses gentle humor and an emphasis on color as ongoing themes in her work and digitally manipulate snapshots of family and friends to create heroic portraits. Richard is best known for his editorial cartoons, graphic satire and cartooning devices such as symbolism, exaggeration, analogy and caricature.
