Emerging Artist Showcase featuring Melissa Pagluica

SEE EVENT DETAILS
Melissa Pagluica is a full time artist residing in Oakland, California. She has worked as a cover artist for publishers such as Boom! Studios and Vault Comics and as a freelance illustrator. She is best known for her webcomic Above the Clouds which she self-published in a complete hardcover edition through Kickstarter in 2022. Her current project, Monster Heart, can be read on Webtoon Canvas.

Creating Above the Clouds

"Above the Clouds started as a way for me to learn how to create comics. Although I began my career as an illustrator who loved telling stories within a single image, this passion quickly morphed into telling longer ones. With many failed attempts in putting together a story, I realized I had to give myself two strict rules in order to move forward: 1) The story doesn't need to be perfect and 2) as long as I get one page done it's already a success: One page is better than zero pages.

"Something opened within me after freeing myself from trying to make the perfect comic. And then one evening, during a family dinner, I typed in the notes section of my phone: 'A boy gives a girl a book.' It was simple, but I really loved the imagery. The next day, I drew out two character sheets and the day after that I drew out two comic pages and just never stopped going."
