Tresemme tumblr new york fashion week 2015 @rebeccamock

Tresemme & Tumblr - New York Fashion Week 2015

This year I participated in a collaboration between Tumblr and Tresemme, with many other photographers and artists, centered around NYFW. I created 4 fabulous .gifs about hairstyling. It was invigorating to create a series based around one concept, to experiment with the animations, and to work with such an enthusiastic and talented team.

My go to fast food the new yorker culture desk i @rebeccamock

My Go-To Fast Food
The New Yorker, Culture Desk

I was asked by The New Yorker to draw my favorite fast food, and I decided on the lamb shish-kebab sandwich, representing halal cart food in general. I love it!!! 

Also, as an experiment, I recorded myself painting it, so if you have any interest in a 20 minute time-lapse photoshop painting of food w/ a dubstep soundtrack, check this out. 
*I am working on more process/tutorial videos so if you have any requests, let me know!

Ruining that moody urban glow nytimescom sunday @rebeccamock

Ruining That Moody Urban Glow & Sunday Review

I have a piece in the Sunday Review today, and a .gif equivalent online. The article is about the LED streetlights replacing those orange-glow lightbulbs all over Brooklyn. I have them in my neighborhood, too, and they are indeed eerie.

I painted this sandwich as a detail in a poster @rebeccamock

I painted this sandwich as a detail in a poster, but the client asked me to take it out. So, have a sandwich. (it’s avocado & arugula)

Exclusive hope larson teams with rebecca mock for @rebeccamock

Exclusive: Hope Larson Teams with Rebecca Mock for High Seas Adventure in ‘Compass South’

Check out the art for the cover of Compass South, the graphic novel I’ve been working on for a couple years! Written by the brilliant Hope Larson!! The cover art for this book was something I really indulged on, including many of my favorite things–dramatic clouds, majestic sails, plus my babies Alex and Cleo being all heroic and awesome. Keep an eye out for this book next year.

Creation changes the world gif for sony digital @rebeccamock

“Creation changes the world”
.gif for Sony Digital Entertainment Japan

I was commissioned by SDEJ to create a gif of whatever I wanted with the loose theme of “creation changes the world”, for the company to use for their new website. I interpreted this to mean that how we express, display and share our ideas helps shape our reality–which is also why I love illustration. I had wanted to make a .gif of a potter’s wheel for a while so I jumped at the chance! For research, I watched tons of wheel throwing videos in Youtube.

Sunday Comics - Monthly Edit

I did a series of 6 summery .gif illustrations for The Loft, all of which you can see here! 

Tacoma fullbright game informer august cover @rebeccamock

TACOMA, Fullbright>> Game Informer August cover

TACOMA is the upcoming new game by Fullbright, the indie game developer behind Gone Home (if I was going to make a video game, it would be just like Gone Home). Fullbright asked me to paint this cover spread for them and their promotion with Game Informer. This will also be a wallpaper, poster, and general promo image for the game! The image features Amy, the main character, designed by Emily Caroll in collab with the Fullbright team. And I pulled all the environment details from the gorgeous teaser trailer. I was really inspired by the game concept and Amy’s design, and Fullbright were so supportive and fun to work with!

Keep your eye on this game! Join me in the Amy Ferrier fan club! Touch the cover of Game Informer for me!

Bar Tab
selected works

I have been doing a fair few Bar Tab illustrations in the past year–Bar Tab is a column in the New Yorker that reviews bars around the city. I like these assignments for their simplicity, plus I really enjoy painting shiny still-life type scenes. Thanks AD Deanna Donegan!

Tsutaya electrics store futako tamagawa grand @rebeccamock

Electrics Store, Futako Tamagawa (grand opening)

I had an interesting opportunity to create a series of images for this new (or revamped) branch of the Tsutaya Electrics store located outside Tokyo, Japan. I was asked to illustrate different scenes around the Futako Tamagawa area, from the main streets to the park along the river, and maybe animate parts of them. These are only some of the full series. This project had a really fast turnaround but I’m quite happy with the final product, considering. It was so cool to see photos of my work decorating part of the store–which is huge, and super gorgeous, my work is only a small part! I don’t know how long they’ll be on display, but if you happen to be nearby that part of the world, maybe check them out and enjoy browsing in this cool place! 

Sansas lemon cakes game of thrones catchdrogon @rebeccamock

Sansa’s Lemon Cakes
Game of Thrones #catchdrogon twitter promotion

I was commissioned by the official Game of Thrones twitter to create some graphics to help promote the premiere of season 5 tonight. I had to create a gif based around Sansa Stark’s favorite food, lemon cakes. There’s a particular scene in season 4, with Sansa still reeling from the news that her mother and brother have been murdered, when she refuses a plate of lemon cakes. Sansa’s lemon cakes are symbolic of the life she dreamed of having–they’re a great luxury, and a symbol of the refined, idyllic life of a court lady. Later they are a comfort to her, a small joy as she becomes more and more isolated. Sansa retreats into her own head, and her lemon cakes–and her hopes–are left behind. 
I had to kind of guess what lemon cakes in King’s Landing looked like–there aren’t really any clear shots of them, but i knew they were unique to the region. I eventually used info from this video and this photo

A mission of mercy for the ny times opinionator @rebeccamock

A Mission of Mercy
for the NY Times Opinionator blog

This is a quick sequential .gif piece I did for a haunting essay. The story is about a baby born with complications, and surrounding complications of immigration–told from the perspective of the physician caring for him.

Transportation capital new york magazine i did the @rebeccamock

Capital New York Magazine

I did the cover for this month’s issue of Capital Magazine. I know very well how trying to commute on the subway after a blizzard is…a challenge. I used a local Brooklyn subway station for reference, and got a chance to draw figures into the piece, which I don’t often get to do outside of my comics. Thanks AD Peter Lettre!

Dog good omens radio play for bbc radio 4 im a @rebeccamock

Good Omens radio play for BBC Radio 4

I’m a fan of plenty of BBC productions, and I love Good Omens, so being asked to work on some promo art for this radio play was a dream come true. You can listen to the show on the BBC website—it’s quite enjoyable to hear Peter Serafinowicz and Mark Heap flirt with each other. Here’s the hellhound, Dog, who we meet in episode 2.

This hellhound was modeled after Evan Dahm’s dog Billy. Billy is the best.

The Old Woman (excerpt)

a short sci fi comic about emotionally distant sisters Ruth and Casey, and snowmobiles and time loops. It will be part of a longer story, depending on how well this first zine sells (!!)

I’ll have this at Locust Moon Festival this Saturday, along with my other zines and some prints. Please come out and see the show, it’s gonna be good!

This week I’ll be a guest judge (along with Victo Ngai) for an exhibition of the SUPER talented students at Ringling. Also I’ll be road-testing some new .gif demos and using my terrible college portfolio to give undergrads hope.

Post spx recap very good photo stolen from spx @rebeccamock

Post-SPX Recap (very good photo stolen from SPX tumblr >:])
SPX was infamous, humbling, and legendary this year. So much talent and energy, from the first-timers to the amazing people who’ve been tabling for years and who are my heroes. 
Working in comics/illustration, in relative isolation, it’s easy to lose sight of my motivation. “Who cares? Why try?” my bitter inner-voices whisper. So it is incredibly validating to be able to show pride in my work. THANK YOU everyone who came by our table to say hello. <3 Main regret, not walking around more! My tablemates Annie and Tim were a dream. I was really nervous before our panel, but everyone was so sweet and chill my jitters melted away! Hope to see many of you again next month at Locust Moon Festival.

If you are interested in buying a print of mine, my InPrnt shop is having a week-long sale–FREE SHIPPING worldwide!! These are gallery-quality giclée art prints on 100% cotton rag archival paper, printed with archival inks.

Available from me at spx table b9 high quality @rebeccamock

Available from me at SPX, table B9:

  • High quality color prints, 8x10", 11x16" and 13x19"
  • Solid Sight –SPX special!
  • Four Points - Sneak Peeks
  • Hana Doki Kira

I’ve turned Solid Sight 3D into a digital PDF, since the 3D pictures work a lot better on a monitor than printed. When you buy Solid Sight Analog, you will receive a pair of 3D glasses and a digital 3D version, emailed right to you. :) A couple weeks after SPX the digital version will go up for sale online. 

Im going to be at spx ill be at table b9 with @rebeccamock

I’m going to be at SPX! I’ll be at Table B9 with friends and co-conspirators Annie Stoll and Tim Ferrara and we’ll be selling our comic anthology Hana Doki Kira! I’ll also have some luscious 13x19 prints, a Solid Sight two-for-one zine special, and a sneak peek of my upcoming GN Four Points. Stay tuned for a merchendise preview!!

edit: Also! I’ll be a part of the Making Art For The Internet panel along with Sam Alden, Blaise Larmee and Emily Carrol!!!! It’s on Sunday from 3pm to 4pm. 

Hana Doki Kira will also be available from other artists at the show: Alice Meichi Li at Table B8, Carey Pietsch at Table E12BMegan Brennan at Table A11, and Kris Mukai at Table A12. Visit us all for signatures!

The clipper a small quick painting i made @rebeccamock

The Clipper

A small, quick painting I made originally as part of a series for SPX. A bunch of stuff came up in recent weeks, so…. it looks like this finished print is all there is of that series. But exciting things are in store for the future!
I’ve been doing a lot of research on tall ships lately. If you want to learn more about maritime topics or my upcoming GN Four Points, come find me at SPX. :)

The aftershocks mediumcom i was asked to create @rebeccamock

The Aftershocks

I was asked to create a .gif of a house interior during an earthquake. The article chronicles the controversial aftermath of the devastating quake that happened in L'Aquila, Italy in 2009. I wanted to capture the movement of the “tremors” before the full-on earthquake, although this tremor is infinite, never resolving.
This image and the all the animation was made in Photoshop. thanks AD Erich Nagler!

5 cool ways to use business cards in evernote @rebeccamock

“5 Cool Ways to Use Business Cards in Evernote”
for PCWorld, AD Liz Fiorentino

This was a fun assignment–I wanted to animate some library card catalog drawers stuffed with notes, to show how Evernote organizes stacks of info based around a business card. The animation can only be seen on the “enhanced” tablet edition of the magazine, but you can see the still version here

Hey im going to be at ripexpo this weekend @rebeccamock

Hey, I’m going to be at RIPEXPO this weekend, which is a brand-new comics and zine fest, free and open to the public.

I’ll be selling HANA DOKI KIRA and SOLID SIGHT 3D and a bunch of high-quality prints, so you should come and say hi to me and try out my weird stereogram comics.

I’ll also be moderating the Art For Girls panel with Suzy X, Carey Pietsch and Laurel Lynn Leake. Read all of their comics. And please join us for the panel :)

Check out the RIPEXPO tumblr for all the info!!!

Iced coffee weather i made this really rough @rebeccamock

Iced Coffee Weather

I made this (really) rough animation last summer as a mock-up for an ad pitch, but it was never used, so maybe you guys will find it inspiring and go treat yourselves this week. 

I will be at tcaf this weekend squeezed in at @rebeccamock

I will be at TCAF this weekend, squeezed in at table 208 with fellow Hana Doki Kira organizers Annie Stoll and Lindsay Cannizzaro, and sharing the table with Maritsa Patrinos. I am so pleased to be tabling with these ladies, they are absolute darlings.

I’ll have a bunch of prints, my Solid Sight zine and postcard pack, as well as 2 brand-new zines. Come by to chat about Hana Doki Kira, Four Points, clipper ships and stereograms. Also, check out the full TCAF map of HDK artists and more info about our debut book.

Oak Forest
Houstonia Magazine

I did an illustration for this article in Houstonia Magazine–A community is Houston is known for its friendly, pay-it-forward attitude. Houstonia is a really cool magazine and it was fun to work with them on such a warm piece!

Wow almost 50000 notes thanks tumblr and @rebeccamock

Wow, almost 50,000 notes! Thanks Tumblr! (and thanks Annie!) This post includes a couple gifs I never posted to Tumblr, too.   
1 - The animated version of the Walrus cover, which ended up not being used
2 - The Party
3 - The Quiet Ones, the gif version of which I couldn’t upload to Tumblr myself because sometime Tumblr just hates gifs. ‎(ノಥ益ಥ)ノ ┻━┻
4 - Main Street Blues 

The link below is to a post about my work on, a nice collection of almost all the .gif work I’ve done. 
If you’re interested, you can also read an interview I did recently.


Hey that’s my pal, @rebeccamock !  Make sure you follow her tumblr too:


Animated artwork by Rebecca Mock

Fine, detailed and subtle animated artwork created by New York illustrator Rebecca Mock. Apparently the animated gif back to stay, gradually more and more people are exploring this old format and customers asking for shouting. Several of these illustrations were created for the New York Times or The Warlus magazine.

Re alone yet not alone ny times i have a @rebeccamock

Re: “Alone, Yet Not Alone”
NY Times 

I have a .gif illustration on the NY Times Letters page today for an article about how people personally experience religious faith, and several reader opinions on it. The article and letters made me think of that painting “The Penitent Magdalen” by Georges De La Tour (one of my favorites), and this piece is a nod to its symbolism.

Comicsetc rebecca mock leads our first 3d @rebeccamock


Rebecca Mock leads our first 3D comics reading. You read that correctly. It was incredible!

Thanks Annie Mok, Laura Knetzger, O Horvath, Kat Mukai, Kris Mukai and Bergen Street Comics for making last night magical. And thanks to everyone who came out and took part in the grand experiment that was my 3D presentation of Solid Sight! You all looked awesome in your 3D glasses.

Above me on the landing stood a strange girl @rebeccamock

Above me on the landing stood a strange girl, about my age, with short black hair. She was smiling down at me, not a warm smile, not a friendly smile, but the coldest, most frightening smile I had ever seen. 

–Goosebumps #1 Welcome to Dead House, R. L. Stine

This is my piece for the MONSTER EDITION book! The book itself has just gone up for pre-order for a limited time–check out the store and the masterpost of artists. I was introduced to the work of a ton of talented artists through this book. I’m so glad to be a part of it! Welcome to Dead House is one of my favorite books from the series. So classically ridiculous and creepy.

||| order Solid Sight zine and Windows & Corners print set here ||| purchase Solid Sight PDF here  |||

A post-SPX thank you is due: to all who stopped by the table to chat, I couldn’t be more grateful. A lot of my work is deeply personal and it was mind-blowing to meet others who connected with it, to talk with some of my absolute heroes who inspired it!
I hope I can continue to attend (and table, fingers crossed) SPX for many years to come. special thanks to my tablemate Aimee, and Maritsa for putting a whole pile of us up at her house. <3

SPX 2013

I will be hanging out at SPX this weekend with my bro Aimee Fleck! We’ll be at table w35A, thats all the way on the back wall! I’ll have my brand-new book Solid Sight as well as a postcard pack of my “windows & corners” illustrations, and some 12x18 prints. Aimee will have a shiny new comic called The Door. Come meet us!

Untitled story part 1 a fated meeting mel @rebeccamock

Untitled Story PART 1: A FATED MEETING (?!?)

Mel, captain of the college track team, bumps into Pheobe, chemistry scholar, and the two share a peculiar feeling that they’ve met before. Little do they know that their connection is the key to terrific power!

This is a preview of the short comic I made for the Hana Doki Kira comics/illustration anthology, which I’m also helping to put together. In high school I was drawing comics very similar to this, but the vintage-CLAMP manga style is quite removed from the work I do these days. It was fun to tap into my shojo-roots–I’ve come a long way from tracing Sailor Moon pictures but I’ll always dream of being a magical girl.

Check out the tumblr for more info about the book. I’ll also have a preview and info about this at SPX!

Solid sight the zine i will be debuting at spx @rebeccamock

Solid Sight

The zine I will be debuting at SPX this year is called SOLID SIGHT. It will be a story told in stereograms–the viewer steps through an abandoned film roll, searching for the subject of the photographs, and finds only ghosts. “Solid Sight” is another way of staying stereopsis, the ability to perceive depth via binocular disparity. Basically, cross your eyes to make ‘em pop.

You going to SPX? If you do, come visit me at table W35A :)

Recently conbravo asked me if they could use an @rebeccamock

Recently ConBravo! asked me if they could use an older piece of mine as graphics for their 2013 convention booklet and some posters. I was thrilled to be asked and happy to help them. Mark Tjan and all the folks who help put that con together are great.
This graphic, which is a slightly altered version of the original, is a “map” of a comic or fan convention. The “Con” holds a special place in my heart, and has since my adolescence. It’s a place where awkward, excitable young Rebecca could be herself and not hold back. No matter what type of show you love, you love being a part of something big and crazy, you love the adventure, and you never forget.

Point and shoot nautilus magazine i made this @rebeccamock

Point and Shoot
Nautilus Magazine

I made this piece for an online article about Lagrange points. I wanted to make a simple image that would help readers visualize the points (they resemble “the points of a drawn bow”) as they read the article. I was working on this at the same time as my Station Zero piece, so I was neck-deep in vintage sci-fi art reference. :)

Hope larsons blog i won an eisner hope @rebeccamock

Hope Larson’s blog | I Won an Eisner! >>

Hope Larson and I are working on a graphic novel called Four Points. It won’t be out for a while, but here’s a teaser of the main characters, Alex and Cleo–giddy as they set out on their adventure, just like me! Follow the link to Hope’s blog, where she talks about this project as well as the Eisner awards and her fellow (awesome) women cartoonists. Hope’s work has been a huge inspiration to me and this project is an absolute dream come true. Stay tuned.

some process/detail images for my Rogue Queen poster.

Guys, if you haven’t already and you’d like to be inspired by fantastic sci-fi art, check out the Station Zero show, and if you’re in Minneapolis tonight, check out the opening!!

Roque queen by l sprague de camp from the lgal @rebeccamock

Roque Queen, by L. Sprague De Camp
from the LGAL Station Zero show

I made this poster for the upcoming Light Grey Art Lab show, Station Zero! Each of the show’s artists was sent their very own vintage sci-fi novel and was asked to re-design the cover as a huge poster. In my book, Iroedh, who lives in a strict, anti-emotion society on an alien planet, meets some human explorers who teach her about romantic love. She rebels against her society and goes on a pilgrimage to discover her destiny which, as it turns out, is for her to become the Rogue Queen and lead a revolution.
I enjoyed the campy, ridiculous plot and the super-cool heroine Iroedh, and I needed to express all my nerdy sci-fi art joy in my poster. I hope you check out the rest of the work from the show, all available for purchase as prints HERE!

Every teenager should have a summer of 65 ny @rebeccamock

Every Teenager Should Have a Summer of ’65
NY Times article here

This week I got to do a small piece for a short story about summer love and bittersweet memories. Hel-lo, favorite subject matter. This piece had a really quick turn-around, so I had to get loose. Always a rewarding exercise. I am pretty pleased with the result! thanks AD Erich Nagler

The walrus summer reading 2013 i had an absolute @rebeccamock

The Walrus: Summer Reading 2013

I had an absolute blast working on the cover for The Walrus Summer Reading issue this year. The concept was to feature two ways to enjoy a lazy summer read–good old books vs. digitally published periodicals! I was keen to illustrate the lush green beauty of summer, something I remember fondly from childhood summers and my parents’ enchanted-forest-like backyard. But my favorite bit of this image is the tuna sandwich!

I painted this image with a lot of extra room on the top and bottom, for the Iphone 5 version of the digital magazine! I recommend you pick the issue up in whatever form you prefer, it’s a great way to spend an afternoon. Many thanks to AD Brian Morgan :-)

Chambering for the online publication nautilus @rebeccamock

“Chambering” for the online publication Nautilus

This is one of a set of .gifs I made for a short story in Nautilus’ preview issue, that ended up getting cut. The story was about star-crossed lovers and the creation of the universe. I worked on this back in December, phew! Sometimes things don’t pan out, but that’s OK. Nautilus is a really interesting new publication, check it out. Thanks AD Len Small!

Laundry story excerpt pgs 5 8 im sorry for @rebeccamock

Laundry Story (excerpt pgs 5-8)

I’m sorry for dumping so many posts all at once guys! Its just that everything is happening at once this week. Laundry Story is a 12-page comic I drew after a conversation with Aimee Fleck about our mutual love of laundromats. I drew this during stolen hours late at night and between projects. A small edition is being printed just for TCAF! Come see me and Maritsa Patrinos at table 242 :)

Lucky cat final pre animation i probably wont @rebeccamock

Lucky Cat (final, pre-animation)

I probably won’t get around to animating this for a while, with TCAF and a couple other things going on this month. So here is the final rendered piece. Thanks for following along! I hope the process gifs helped show how one can easily construct a space in photoshop.

I will have some prints of this as well as several of my other pieces and a new zine for sale at TCAF this weekend! Will you be there? I want to meet you.

Candy capers 1 variant cover c available for @rebeccamock

Candy Capers #1 - Variant Cover C

(available for pre-order here)

I did one of the variant covers for the new Adventure Time spin-off comic series Candy Capers, starring Peppermint Butler & Cinnamon Bun and being written by Johnny Wander and drawn by Ian McGinty. I am beyond excited to contribute art to another stellar AT comic series. I love that BOOM pulls in lots of different artists for each of these series and continues to expand the AT universe. I can’t wait to read this issue!

Lucky cat progress 2 part 1 here ive been @rebeccamock

Lucky Cat progress 2 (part 1 here)

I’ve been nitpicking at this since the last post. I did some re-framing and nudging, and painted in most of the little details! but the lucky cat’s arm is missing. I’m planning to animate it. Process/tutorial post to follow soon.

Zhangye danxia the zhangye danxia is a unique @rebeccamock

Zhangye Danxia

The Zhangye Danxia is a unique landform found in China. The mountain range seems to be made of candy-bright stripes of different sedimentary rock layers that have been forced upwards and carved down by time, revealing slices of Earth’s colorful past. 

This little piece is part of the Light Grey Art Lab show Macro & Micro (Minerals category), which will be opening this Friday in Minneapolis, MN. Check out the site for more info. You can also buy this print or any of the other pieces in the show HERE! I am floored by all the awesome art that was made for this show, and really honored to just be a part of one of LGAL’s awesome exhibitions!

A year in trees a made this animatedprint piece @rebeccamock

A Year In Trees

A made this animated/print piece to accompany the beautiful op-ed story “A Year in Trees” for the NY Times. I was really excited to try animating something like this. Thanks AD’s Erich Nagler and Aviva Michaelov !

Apple Stereogram

I made this as a test for another project, and printed up a few to hand out at MoCCAfest! (Here’s a post of my haul from today) Thanks to all the super-nice people who traded with me, accepted my silly gifts, and just stopped to say hi! Seriously, so high on love right now. 

A sneak peak of my piece for the upcoming light @rebeccamock

Maritsa will be selling at MoCCA at table B39, and I’ll be walking around. AND she and I will be sharing a table at TCAF! I can’t wait!

Misato katsuragi dreams of the second impact @rebeccamock

Misato Katsuragi Dreams of the Second Impact

Misato didn’t appeal to me when I watched Eva the first time, but re-watching it recently as an adult I’ve come to really like her. She seems carefree and detached, but she’s suffered greatly and struggles against many obstacles, from patriarchy to the threat of global annihilation. Also she has good taste in beer.

This piece was done as part of the Red Cross Book Eva fan zine.

I’ve gotten a couple (very nice :D) questions regarding my process for my digital illustrations, so I thought I’d make a painting with the intent of showing the process. I’m using the lasso tool and shift key for a lot of this early stuff.

For the past couple months ive been working on a @rebeccamock

For the past couple months I’ve been working on a short side-comic for Spera, a series of collaborative adventure comics. The comic was a collaboration between writer Josh Tierney and myself, and I had a blast making it!

I really recommend you go read the original online Spera comic (and these online shorts) and maybe pick up volume 1 (and look out for volume 2 in February!)

I did an alt cover for issue 2 of the upcoming @rebeccamock

I did an alt cover for issue #2 of the upcoming Fionna and Cake Comic mini-series, which will be drawn by tumblr hero and AT storyboard artist NATASHA ALLEGRI! I had fun drawing gender-swapped candy people (and Tree Trunks!), and drawing lots of Cakes as “practice”. I’m so happy to be able to finally share it with you all and I hope you will pick up the first issue when it comes out next year.

A hypothetical story about a girl who rides a @rebeccamock

A hypothetical story about a girl who rides a fixed-gear bike, who gets mixed up with a giant robot. I was thinking about what it would be like to see something monumental from a far distance in the dark, the line between a hallucination and objects obscured by atmospheric perspective. I am a big fan of The Iron Giant and FLCL, and “bike porn”–sexy pictures of sweet custom bikes, sexy girl optional.
