August for Belkis
Hey I just realized that I all but forgot that this was August, and that I needed to post the Belkis image of the month.
This image is brought to us by my gal Michele St. Martin who was born in the Big Apple, and (by her own admission) initiated into a very strange family that weaned her on a steady diet of Famous Monsters, Eerie, Creepy, Heavy Metal magazine, stoner-rock, Kung-Fu movies, really bad horror & exploitation films, and great books & art.
Eventually she attended Manhattan’s High School of Art and Design, graduating with honors & a penchant for drawing truly naughty images. After attending Brooklyn’s Pratt Institute for a spell, she figured she’d be making more money freelancing than actually going to class, which she did with relish & has been doing ever since, illustrating for various companies, publications, and private clients. Currently, Michele is pursuing various projects, including a collaboration slated to appear in an original horror comic entitled MUTATIA. She now divides her time between New York City and Seattle, WA. You can also check out her ComicSpace page, DeviantArt, and her online gallery.
Face it, kids, Michele St. Martin is simply the coolest! Oh yeah, if you want a copy of James Rodriguez’s über-cool NovaStar Studios, Fantasy Art Calendar (featuring Belkis), you can contact James over at his site, and while you are there, ask him about his up-coming sci-fi comicbook.
