Bringing us back to Frank Miller's black-n-white city of sin

Mechs, demons, superheroes, video game legends & more

Tim Maclean "Fragments & Phantoms" exhibit at Subtext Gallery

Subtext Gallery in San Diego is hosting artist Tim Maclean’s first solo show, Fragments & Phantoms, which opened July 14 during Comic Con. The timing makes sense given Maclean’s work plays on fantasy’s invasion of the real world, much like Comic Con itself. Fantasy stems from the mental realm, or as Maclean says, “the place where […]
