MARIA HOEY

Coin-Op is the nom de plume of sibling illustration team Maria and Peter Hoey. She lives in Brooklyn, he lives in Northern California. They do illustrations and graphic design work for a number of small and large companies, though the aesthetic is uniformly consistent from project to project. That style is referable to the Hoeys’ sleek, architectural, midcentury...

RODRIGUEZ CALERO

The idea of a gallery-based artist making saints and martyrs of recent hip-hop artists feels almost anachronistic these days. Walk into any t-shirt or poster emporium from here to the Wildwood Boardwalk and you’re sure to find a whole host of sanctimonious portraits of 2Pac, Biggie Smalls, and Bob Marley. Why then should we care about Rodriguez Calero‘s “Urban Martyrs...

CASSEY KUO

I met Cassey Kuo at the MoCCA Fest this past April, where she shared a table with a handful of other upstarts in the illustration biz. Kuo sold me two square prints, which looked like animation cells from some lost 1950s Disney film, though, in fact, neither were. They weren’t, so says the artist, in service...

JACK KIRBY

The late Jack Kirby (1917-1994) remains, in my estimation, one of the true 20th century visionaries to come out of New York City. To comic book cultists and illustrators alike, Kirby is the medium’s doyen. To the larger art world, however, his work is mostly unassessed. His many comebacks also rivaled that of Frank Sinatra....
