New Artist: Jeffrey Veregge

Jeffrey Veregge (Port Gamble S’Klallam) will join us for the May exhibit, bringing his unique Salish Geek vision to “Salish Sound Waves”! Veregge is gaining huge acclaim and recognition for his mix of nerd and pop culture and southern Salish design, with his artwork for Marvel, IDW and Valiant comics. We’re thrilled to present his limited edition prints at the gallery this month, and going forward.

Veregge has contributed art for over 70 comic books in the past 3 years for Marvel, IDW & Valiant comics. Some of his new projects include a large City of Seattle Public Arts Commission; work on a comic book about the life of Star Trek actor and activist George Takei; working with Leonard Nimoy’s Live Long And Prosper shop to create limited edition prints of Spock to benefit UCLA medical for research for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). As if that weren’t enough, Veregge also just signed a contract for his own comic series–DemiCon–to debut in late May/mid June!

We’ll be carrying four of his previous limited edition giclee prints in the gallery in May, plus we’re debuting three brand new Star Trek prints. “We Are The Borg” is a series created in celebration of the show, and features Seven of Nine, Jean Luc Picard and The Borg Queen in all their technicolor glory.
