Jillian Tamaki original artwork from Skim now on display!

Our friends at the Beguiling in Toronto just sent us a package with a bunch of fantastic drawings and sketches by Jillian Tamaki, co-creator of the graphic novel Skim. They will grace the walls of the Librairie until January 14th, 2009, so make sure you come by and take a gander (or two)...

I've always loved Tamaki's expressive linework, since I first encountered Gilded Lillies, her first book, published by Andy Brown over at Conundrum Press. It's great to see what these panels look like in the raw, before they were polished and printed. As with many artists, that's the stage at which I like them best.

If you're a fan of Skim, or if you're a fan of her fantastic work in general, you won't want to miss seeing Tamaki's drawings in the flesh.

Also, Jillian has an amazing website including an online sketchbook blog that's so good it makes me want to give up on art:
