Seal's Gouache In Progress

Seal has been hard at work sharpening her gouache skills to prep for her weekend-long demo at the SF Zine Fest. She's currently working on some smaller paintings to sell/make glicees from. She's still working on this one, but here's a sneak peek!

(from L to Right): Gouache work in progress, original pencil sketch, digital color over pencil sketch

Print sale!

We're currently running a sale on our Etsy shop. We're pricing this Jackalope serigraph (fine art silkscreen print) at over half-off to get these suckers out the door! Go go now!

The SF Zine Fest

Monkey + Seal will be tabling at the SF Zine Fest!! Woo! It will be held on August 22+23 at the SF County Fair Building in Golden Gate Park. Admission is free, and there will be panel speakers, workshops, and tons of great independent creators!

Monkey will be co-instructing the Bookbinding workshop, where you'll be able to learn about hand-stitching your own zines and books!

Seal will be doing a weekend-long (or at least one full day) gouache demonstration, where she will be painting some of her newest works from start to finish! She'll be on hand to discuss color mixing, temperature, paint handling, and any other questions you might have about the medium, her paintings, or her techniques!

Also, word is on the street that the Zine Fest still has a few tables open, so sign up now!!! (Full disclosure - Monkey runs registration for the fest :P )

Anyhoo, stop by and say hi! We hope to see you there!

Thanks for visiting! We are Monkey + Seal, the collaboration between artists Eve Skylar and Ri.S.K. We publish our own mini-comics, zines, and paint, illustrate, and make stationery and such.

We sell our wares on the friendly Etsy site, as well as on our current site designed to keep Seal in art school. More of our paintings and artwork are on our personal site, but we're working on getting them up on Etsy.

Thanks again for stopping by and we hope to see you again and again!
