Editions #26-50: Sunday, October 25th, 2015 at IE Zine Fest
TMRWLND, spoken as “Tomorrow Land,” is the creative brainchild of Los Angeles based artists TS Claire and Dereck Seltzer, aka Haunted Euth. TS Claire and Haunted Euth started their collaboration by chance three years ago, and what started as a coincidental meeting turned out to be a prosperous creative partnership, allowing these artists to establish a unique and highly recognizable shared visual expression. Established in 2013, TMRWLND morphed from a zine project into a full time creative studio entity and working space located adjacent to the booming downtown Los Angeles Arts District. Although they create some remarkable collaborative pieces together using methods such as: inking, drawing, silkscreen printing, and hand painting, their individual styles can be traced to their separate and distinctive backgrounds.
The artwork of the TMRWLND zine showcases this complimentary relationship between TS Claire’s and Haunted Euth’s styles, with imagery that is self-curated to represent their individual bodies of work. This particular issue of TMRWLND is the first to be printed and published by Serio Press.
TS Claire is a self-taught painter whose work explores feminist ideals and female empowerment through energetic imagery. @tfail
Dereck Seltzer (Haunted Euth) received his BFA in painting from Otis College of Art and Design and has been working as a Muralist, Designer, and Printmaker. His work is a focused visual narrative exploring the addictive, self-destructive behaviors and fetishisms he routinely encounters in his daily life in Los Angeles. @hauntedeuth
