You can be one of the first to get your own copy at the MoCCA Fest this weekend at table C91.
An Invitation To The World Of Luisa Felix, Cartoonist. The 100-page book has been printed in a limited edition of 250 hand-numbered copies, and each copy will contain a small sample of original Luisa Felix art. Nine artists – Keith O’Brien, Michele Witchipoo, Steve Peters, Larry Blake, Natalie Ewert, Frank Humphris, Eric Jensen, Paul and myself – have also contributed tribute art incorporating some of the many characters Ms. Felix created over her forty-year career. The book is a joint publication of Drowned Town Press and Micro-Comics.
If there are any copies left after the Mocca show, you might be able to order either through this website, or contact Paul Curtis. At the moment, your best bet is to purchase the book at the Mocca Fest. Any further updates will be posted.
Luisa Felix had a love of films from the 1920’s and 1930s era. Inspired by actress Jean Harlow, Luisa created her character Candy Blondell.
I had first met Luisa during the MoCCA Art Festival back in 2005 or 2006. She was a sweet lady who formed her own fantastic world through her comics. Here’s two of her front covers:
Luisa was a kind creative who was a regular fixture at the annual Indie comic con MoCCA Art Fest. It was there I first came in contact with her. A very sweet woman. When I first started taking my own comics and artwork seriously, she was one of the first comic creators who I befriended. Due to this, she kinda holds a special place in my memories. In addition, she was a wonderful artist.
Plans for a tribute in honor of this delightful female cartoonist is in the works.
