Denver – Colorado comic book artist, performer & filmmaker Daniel Crosier will unveil original art from various comic book series he has created over the last decade. The opening reception is slated for Friday, January 13th, 6pm to 10pm at GRACe, 888 E 50th Ave, Denver, CO 80216. Crosier’s featured works are curated from the pages of the horror books “Bartholomew of the Scissors,” “Distortions Unlimited” and the narco-romance book “Caustic Soda”.
Crosier is an artist native to Colorado and has been illustrating comic books since 2006. He is known for his wood burning style of illustration. This technique was first introduced in “Bartholomew of the Scissors”, a horror series written by Chad Helder. Crosier also wrote, illustrated, and colored the “Distortions Unlimited” series while his collaborator, Peter Palmiotti, provided the ink work on wood. The book is based off of characters created by Ed Edmunds at Distortions Unlimited, a horror-animatronic company based in Greeley, Co featured on the Travel Channel’s “Making Monsters.” Crosier also illustrated the “Caustic Soda” series from a script written by Shane Roeschlein, using mostly graphite and ink on birch ply.
Crosier has a multi-faced art background which includes creative directing a samurai demon fight performance group OFM: OdAm fEI mUd and directing and starring in the recently released mockumentary called “Isolation Man” based on his comic book “The Exquisite Vanisher”.
Crosier is a graduate of RMCAD, with a BFA in Sculpture. He has been illustrating all his life. His academic career in sculpting gave him the inclination to explore other materials and surfaces to draw. Grounded in wood, he continues sequential art in the world of horror comics as well as more dramatic or even more absurd offerings. Crosier has inhabited studio space in the recently shut down Glob, the former Wazee Union artist collective and now is a resident of GRACe gallery which he describes as, “a romanticized Mad Max wasteland-like oasis for creatives.”
