Filtered Through the Red Scull Cap
BY MARC WAGNER
@ VOL 13
ON MAR 06, 2015
Raised on a healthy diet of cartoons and comic books, Marc Wagner’s playful drawings are deceivingly innocent. These bright colors tend to tell some dark stories. Marc’s current work addresses the subconscious mind, sometimes his own, by working quickly and watching to see what happens. He also addresses our culture’s bombardment of images, and the popular characters that have become cultural icons. Most of Marc’s images are marker & pen, but he will occasionally use his printmaking background for different imagery.
Marc attended South Dakota State University, where he received a degree in Graphic Design. During his time at SDSU, he also pursued his interests in studio arts. Particularly, drawing and printmaking. After graduating in 2013, he moved to back to Sioux Falls with his wife and their dogs. In addition to his job at Dakota Lettering, Marc stays busy freelancing as an illustrator.

PKN Knoxville #13 Poster
We are lucky that Rob Laliberte of WDWRK | small wares co. was willing to share his graphic talents to promote the 13th Pecha Kucha event in Knoxville. A word from the artist below. ***************************** The idea was to design something visually striking using the literal meaning of PechaKucha "chit chat". It is about placing you in the conversation of someone expressing to you "Let's talk!" and "Thankyou" Arigato. The design aesthetic is a subtle nod to Japanese street art, neon lights, and Japanese cartoons. Depictions of characters that often have more meaning, then just a visual stylization. Through the meaning of colors, blue represents one-to-one communication, especially communication through the voice. It is speaking the truth through verbal self-expression - it is both the teacher and the public speaker. - Rob *****************************
