For all you local artists, there’s a new art supply store in the area, and it’s a good one. Art Supplies, Ink, is run by Rich Koslowski, a comic book artist and author, whose work has appeared in Archie and Marvel. He’s also author of the Ignatz award winning graphic novel, Three Fingers. The store has only been open for a few weeks, and is still stocking — but there’s a nice selection of canvasses, paints, brushes, easels, inks, pens, pencils, and art books — in short, just about everything you need. I was happy to see that they carry a supply of brown, rough sketch paper – my favorite to use with pen and ink.
The store is also offering art classes: oil painting classes by local painter/teacher Noah Gould; “The Nuts and Bolts of Drawing Cartoons,” taught by Jon “Bean” Hastings, and “Collage Landscapes” taught by Donna Thompson, M.A. Koslowski says he would be happy to hear of any suggestions for other classes.
So check it out. Art Supplies, Ink is located at 7960 Soquel Drive, Suite H1, in Aptos Village Square. 831-708-2855.
