Clay Hickson made the Lumpen Comic of the Week
Our comic of the week is by artist Clay Hickson. Clay is a freelance illustrator and printmaker living in Chicago, IL. He is also the owner/operator of Tan & Loose Press, a small publishing platform that specializes in limited edition artists books and prints. While Clay was initially hesitant to contribute to Lumpen, his reasoning was that he is “not really a comics artist”, we encouraged him to do something anyway. Crucial to Lumpen‘s core philosophy when it comes to making an magazine is to get artists to work outside their comfort zones, and in some cases that means pestering people that don’t make comics until they give it a shot, and we think Clay really nailed it and we are super honored to have him.
