Hello, Hello Hungry Creator supports.
First I would like to take the time to express all the Hungry creators disappointment over the cancellation of Las Vegas Supercon. Every member of the team was eagerly looking forward to the unveiling of the new product lines we have been working over the past few months. However, for all of you supporters planning on joining us at the con; you will just have to wait two more weeks to join us at the Vegas Valley Comic festival. The festival is scheduled Saturday November 5th from 10am-4pm. Future posts will provide detailed information on Hungry Creator activities planned for the event, but for now without further delay welcome to the first posting of literature in serialization, creative works of fiction released piece by piece. For more information email firstname.lastname@example.org.
For now Hungry Creators is happy to bring you A Life of Leisure part one. Enjoy!
A Life of Leisure (part 1)
Fire burned across the sky raising thick clouds of bellowing darkness. It churned the horizon like a black waterfall. The bleakness mixed with the midday skyline breeding a force of night dark enough to drink out the sun and cast shadows of perpetual darkness on the city below. One by one, Jackson counted the empty homes, thousands after thousands; bleakly giving into the flames before crashing to the ground alone.
Only two months ago I left Las Vegas and its two million people with only four things to carry on my back. One, as much of my clothing as I could manage into my single canvas laundry bag. Two, a six inch hunting knife, and hatchet left to me long ago by a father I lost hope of ever seeing again and finally, a brown leather journal that I now use to write and record these words. Although I write with no hope for myself. Continue reading
Do you remember a time when toys were grand just because you knew they could come with your own custom story derived from the deep recesses of your imagination? Sarah Flake, the creator behind Flaky Friends, preserves this notion through her plushes with issues. Continue reading
Justin Favela states that “Perfection is boring.” He proves this powerful statement in his two gallery exhibitions “New Paintings” and “Newer Paintings.” Both art exhibitions were held at THE BEAT Coffeehouse on 520 E. Fremont, Las Vegas from September 2nd to September 24 .
Hello, hello fellow artist, writers, and other masters of expression. One year ago this month I and my three other co-founders came together seeking an alternative to the way in which art, concept, and creativity is commoditized and sold today. From there we founded the Hungry Creators mission statement placing value on friendship and substantial content over the massed produced and faltering spectacles forced upon so many aspects of our lives. In one year’s time Hungry Creators has remained true to that mission state as well as our founding ideals.
It has been a long year with many Continue reading
Two of the Hungry Creators, Jean Marie Pilario and Jeddah Balgame proudly call the island of Guam their home.
All members of Hungry Creators are honored to be friends with Guam graphic designer Kristine Leigh Bactad. Her work is famously known as LEIGHZEE.
Hungry Creators co-founder Jean Pilario spent last week at the summer workshop program at the famed Center for Cartoon Studies in White River Junction, Vermont. Jean has always had a deep passion for comic books and dreams and aspirations of release her own comics. While at the center Jean received invaluable instruction from some of the legends of the industry include Steven Bissette, the artist for Alan Moore’s Swamp Thing series.
After the week long studio based work shop, Jean has returned to Hungry Creators absolutely glowing from the experience. Her time their might only have lasted a week, but dreams can last a lifetime.
For details and photos from Jean’s trip or for updates on Jean’s Green Machine web-series and information on her upcoming comic book release WHEN GUAM WAS MY WORLD email: email@example.com or head to greenmachinecomix.tumblr.com.
