Jim Mahfood is hot off being a concept artist for “Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse,” which just won the Academy Award for Best Animated Picture at the 2019 Oscars. Originally a St. Louis Native, his style takes influence from American comic books, graffiti art, anime and psychedelic ’60s imagery. His most recent creator-owned series, Grrl-Scouts - Magic Socks, is a pulse-pounding psychedelic adventure through the streets of Freak City.
