ProFile Friday

Shelli Paroline (born September 30, 1983) is an American cartoonist, best known for her work on the Adventure Time tie-in comics.

Paroline attended Massachusetts College of Art and Design, earning her BFA in Studio for Interrelated Media in 2006. The same year, she co-founded the Boston Comics Roundtable, a collective for comics creators to socialize, find collaborators, and discuss projects. She has contributed to their Inbound anthology and helped to organize MICE, the Massachusetts Independent Comics Expo.

At Boom Studios, she has worked on such properties as Muppet Snow White and Ice Age. In 2012, Boom announced that she (along with husband and collaborator Braden Lamb) would be on art duties for the newly-licensed Adventure Time. The series was a great success, and at San Diego Comic-Con 2013 Paroline won an Eisner Award when it was awarded “Best Publication for Young Readers”.

Her independent work includes “The Trouble Is”, “The Potter’s Pet”, “Higher Ground”, and a Star Wars fan minicomic trilogy. She also drew Tricky Fox Tales for Graphic Universe.

For my first post-SDCC post, it seems appropriate to celebrate a newly-minted Eisner-winner! And she’ll be at Boston Comic Con next weekend!

Marbles: Mania, Depression, Michelangelo, and Me by Ellen Forney

Shortly before her 13th-birthday, Ellen Forney was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Flagrantly manic and terrified that medications would impair her creativity, she began a years-long struggle to find mental stability while retaining her passions and creativity. Forney finds inspiration from the lives and work of other artists and writers who suffered from mood disorders, including Vincent van Gogh, Georgia O’Keeffe, William Styron, and Sylvia Plath. She also researches the clinical aspects of bipolar disorder and what studies tell us about the conundrum of attempting to “cure” an otherwise brilliant mind. Forney’s memoir provides a visceral glimpse into the effects of a mood disorder on an artist’s work.
