Parris Quinn is the alias used by a successful landscape and nude painter for a series of graphic novels called Shadow and Light. I’ve been unable to track down the artist, which is a shame because I’d love to see their work in another medium and subject matter. The illustrations for the books are quite good, though suffer a bit in the faces from a heavy reliance on photo references. The resistance to using word balloons and a slight awkwardness with the language of sequential art should be a negative but, surprisingly, it feels refreshing.
