Artist Review – From the Seattle Review of Books:

Kevin Marshall

Introducing Kevin Marshall, writer and publisher at Transcentainment Comics
based in Seattle WA USA. In his latest, “Not Really an Emotion”, Marshall captures that familiar, haunting moment after waking, the moment when the dense emotion of our dreams slips into memory. His protagonist, Janelle, hears the most beautiful music of her life during meditation. Instead of letting it slide away, she’s obsessed with recreating it — enlisting human and inhuman allies to the cause.

Marshall’s niche is literary fiction in the form of comics, merging photography and illustration to tell stories about modern life. On the page, his work is rich, appealing, and engaging, holding the borderlands between comics and collage. The world is strange and complex; his comics give a more accurate report than photographs or words can by themselves.
