I happened to see issue #2 of Dangerous Ink magazine at the store a few weeks ago [actually I had this drafted in July and never published it] and a quick flip through it interested me enough to buy it. Unfortunately the “read issue 2” link on the web site goes to an issue that is totally different than the one I have (which has the Señorita Muerta skeletal bride on the cover). After reading down the page it looks like they had four issues previously and then “relaunched” this year so my copy is really like Volume 2, Issue 2.
The various comic strips were good (Kreepy Kat, Mooks, Johnny 2K9) but what really got me to buy was the article about Jessica Joslin’s work with found object sculptures of animals that incorporate real bones. Aster (from the Clockwork Circus series) is impressive due to the hornbill skull & beak but the paired pieces like Admiral and Luce from that same collection are really cool.
My next favorite part of the mag was the article about Jason Limón’s work. He has a really awesome style of artwork that I don’t even know how to describe. The artist says that his “work is filled with characters, some happy and some not so happy made up of electrical, mechanical and organic elements.” Drop Dead might be my favorite piece from the article, make sure you check out his Flickr page to see a larger representation of his work than his regular web site has.
