Beguiling Art Store 2.0


Hello! We’re quietly relaunching our Original Art Store today. We’ve got a new, fully-functioning e-commerce site, and the import of the items from the previous art store has just been completed, and double-checked.

The Beguiling Original Art Store is where we sell original comics pages and illustrations by a curated selection of great artists, including Lisa Hanawalt, Sammy Harkham, Gabriel Ba & Fabio Moon, Jeffrey Brown, Vanessa Davis, and many, many more!

The new URL is

It ain’t pretty, and there might still be a few kinks to work out, but you can now a) register for an account, b) add pieces of art to your cart, and c) buy them, so it’s miles ahead of our previous system. 🙂

We’ll be keeping you abreast of updates, both to the site and available art, over the next few months. As always, hit up with art store questions and comments.

New Art: Pascal Girard!

We are quite please to announce that we have added a wonderful selection of new illustrations by Pascal Girard to our art store! Check them out here:

About Pascal Girard

Pascal Girard was born in Jonquière in 1981. He began filling the margins of his notebooks with drawings from his first day of school. As he was never able to rid himself of this good habit he naturally decided to make it his career. He received his interdisciplinary Bachelor of Arts from the University of Quebec in Chicoutimi in 2004. Since then he moved to Quebec City and currently divides his time between his illustration career and drawing comics. His first two books, Dans un cruchon and Nicolas, shared the Réal-Fillion prize at the Quebec Francophone Comics Festival in 2006.

Now On Display: New art by Seth


If you swing by the store over the next few weeks, you’re in for a treat. Our good friend Seth, cartoonist extraordinaire, has lent us all of the original artwork for the recently released novel Love, Dishonor, Marry, Die, Cherish, Perish, by David Rakoff. It’s a gorgeous collection of portraits and incidental works, including the very lovely cover painting.

The artwork will hang through the month of September. We hope you get a chance to see it. 🙂
