Caricature and Fantasy Art from Carlo Angelo

I have a few short comments on Carlo Angelo’s caricature and fantasy art.

Carlo Angelo writes and animates masterful and effervescent art, addressing LGBT and Queer themes in their work. A Contemporary cartooning styles appears in Angelo’s work, alongside a sense of gothic fantasy. An older version of such gothic fantasy might be found in Eyvind Earle’s Disney background work.

Angelo has created a self caricature, with several of his own characters, in a piece created for the Brisbane Melt Festival.

You can find Angelo’s sketchpad on tumblr.

For writing, Less Than Three Press has a short story collection featuring Angelo’s work.

This caricature and fantasy art is featured as part of the Melt Queer arts and culture festival in Brisbane, a celebration of the creative skill in the LGBT community (I wrote about Queer Content’s entry into the Melt Festival previously).
