Mara Marsiglia

New Artist! ūüôā

So after a month of no posts, I’m back with a brand new artist! ūüėÄ

Her name is Mara Marsiglia, an italian emergin artist. The passion for art grew with her since she was a little girl. In fact she started from scrap, but her love for art took her firstly to an Art school, later to one year of NABA, in Milan, as a student of Media Design and nowadays she’s studying at the European Accademy of Manga, in Italy.

At the very beginning Mara wanted to become a fashion stylist but after she saw the manga “Fullmetal Alchemist“, her “art-adventure” towards the manga world began. At first she only read them but after a while she started drawing in that direction. The “mother” of her style is Hiromu Arakawa, creator of “Fullmetal Alchemist”. Other japanese artists who influenced her style are Oh! Great¬†and Tite Kubo. From the italian artists¬†there are Alessandro Barbucci¬†and Barbara Canepa¬†for locations and atmosphere,¬†Paolo Barbieri on the other hand, with his realistic art, influenced her with the digital art technique. As for her character design, videogames played a very important role. Some like “Final Fantasy“, “Kingdom of Hearts“, “HALO“, “Gears of War“, “League of Legends“…

All these artists and videogames only helped her find her style, which is a mixture of japanese comic book art and realistic art, and that is what makes Mara’s art unique. Her bigest inspiration in life is to become a famous manga artist in Italy. So go and check her amazing works! ūüėČ

COMICS

A comic book or comicbook, also called comic magazine or simply comic, is a visual medium used to express ideas via images, often combined with text or visual information.


Comic book history

According to many experts, the precursors to modern comics were the satirical works of artists like Rudolph Töpffer, Wilhelm Busch, Christopher, or Angelo Agostini (first Brazilian comic artist).

The Adventures of Obadiah Oldbuck

The Adventures of Obadiah Oldbuck

T√∂pffer, in 1827, in Switzerland,¬†created a comic strip and continued on to publish seven graphic novels. In 1837, “The Adventures of Obadiah Oldbuck” was published by T√∂pffer and it is considered the earliest known comic book. In 1842¬†it became the first comic book ever published in the United States.

Max und Moritz

 

In 1859, the German poet and artist,¬†Wilhelm Busch¬†published caricatures in the newspaper Fliegende Bl√§tter. In 1865, he published a famous comic called “Max und Moritz“.

Yellow kid

Yellow kid

The 1895 “Yellow Kid“, created by¬†Richard Outcaulthas, has often been cited as being the first comic strip. The reason being is that Outcault was the first artist to use the balloon, an outlined space on the page where what the characters spoke was written. However, comic strips and comic books were published before “Yellow Kid” debuted in the New York City newspaper “The World”. Anyway we should also consider that¬†comics theorists and historians have seen precedents for comics in the¬†Lascaux cave paintings¬†in France (some of which appear to be chronological sequences of images),¬†Egyptian hieroglyphs,¬†Trajan’s Column¬†in Rome,¬†the 11th-century Norman¬†Bayeux Tapestry,¬†the 1370¬†bois Protat¬†woodcut, the 15th-century¬†Ars moriendi¬†and¬†block books, Michelangelo’s¬†The Last Judgment¬†in the Sistine Chapel,¬†and¬†William Hogarth’s 17th-century sequential engravings,¬†amongst others

Comics are not only american

The European, American and Japanese comics traditions have followed different paths.¬†Europeans have seen their tradition as beginning with the ¬†T√∂pffer’s comic strips of the 1830s, while Americans have seen the origin of their tradition in¬†Outcault’s 1890s newspaper strip¬†The Yellow Kid, though many Americans have come to recognize T√∂pffer’s precedence, as we have already said.¬†Japanese comics, on the other hand, had a long prehistory of satirical cartoons and comics leading up to the World War II era.”¬†Manga”, the Japanese term for comics and cartooning, was first popularized by the artist¬†Hokusai¬†in the early 19th century.¬†It is in the post-war era modern Japanese comics began to flourish, when¬†Osamu Tezuka¬†produced a prolific body of work.¬†Towards the close of the 20th century, these three traditions have converged in a trend towards book-length comics: the comics album in Europe, the tankŇćbon¬†in Japan, and the graphic novel in the English-speaking countries.
