PUPPYTEETH 3 Spotlight:
Above is a sample from Mandy Sampson’s contribution to PUPPYTEETH 3, debuting at SPX on September 15th.
Whenever I go to comics shows, the one rule I try to keep for myself is that I need to look at every table, if possible. Finding Mandy Sampson’s work at PACC last year is about the best testament to that being good policy I can think of. Her letterpressed book, “Invisible Sandwich” is one of the best scores I’ve made at a show, a beautiful mixture of fine design, technique, humor and aesthetic. One of the things I really admire about Sampson’s work is dedication to bringing the richness of other materials and craft processes to comics. She’s a book artist, but also an embroiderer, knows how to run a letterpress and plays the accordion. When I first started thinking about widening the net of PUPPYTEETH contributors, she was the first person I thought of. So happy that she was down for it.
You can see process images of Mandy’s piece over at her tumblr, which showcase the different color separations she made.
This is Mandy’s first time contributing to PUPPYTEETH
