Mikhaela and I (and the kid!) are going to be tabling at the 2013 Small Press Expo in Bethesda, Maryland on September 14 and 15. So if you’re in the D.C or anywhere near Maryland, stop by and say hi! Free mini-comic to anyone who brings me an unopened energy beverage.
More details this week until showtime this weekend!
Get Stephen Notley’s new Bob the Angry Flower collection How to Operate a Chair and help him celebrate 20 years of drawing psychotic flowers, fetuses, Daleks, stumps, Gunts and all sorts of death-rays and robotic mayhem.
Not only does this book have some of the funniest, smartest and sci-fi geekiest cartoons I’ve ever read, but it also features amazing Bob pinups by me, Keith Knight, Mikhaela Reid, Shannon Wheeler, Ruben Bolling and a bunch of other top comic and video game creators.
I’m also doing some stuff for my friend, award-winning editorial cartoonist (and editor for Cartoon Movement) Matt Bors. In this case, “stuff” means laying flat color for cartoons like this, and this one here, and that one, and a bunch of others. Check them out!
My Sensations/Fingers of Death illustration is featured in today’s Covered (an amazing site full of classic comic book covers interpreted by different artists).
And while you’re there, check out my latest favorites: these by Matthew Allison.
Get Black Comix: African American Independent Comics, Art and Culture from here ** or schlep your lazy ass to the nearest bookery (if they’re cool, they’ll have it). It’s 175 pages of hardcover goodness from, and about, some of the best artists out there.
And the best part is not only am I profiled in the book, but I have a little illo on the bottom left corner of the cover.
See the Black Comix blog for more info.
*Not recommended for lonely racists.
**although you won’t get it shipped by Valentine’s Day, it should arrive by February 19th for Valenteen’s Day, a holiday I just invented.
Check out my version (top) of Gil Kane’s cover to Sensation Comics #109. The original art and a color print are on exhibit (and for sale) at Headspace Gallery in Michigan’s Green Brain Comics (see press release below)
Green Brain Comics is proud to announce the opening of a new exhibit entitled COVERED on Wednesday, January 13th in the recently named HEADSPACE Gallery inside Green Brain Comics.
Inspired by a similar theme at the Covered blog (www.covered.blogspot.com) HEADSPACE curator Dan Merritt has assembled several pieces by artists that have brought their own touch to famous, and infamous comic book covers from several different decades.
“The theme for this exhibit has really sparked a creative flame.” says Merritt “Each of these pieces has been lovingly recreated in tribute to the original art and the original artists that created them.”
Featured in the exhibit will be works from Michigan based comic creators Paul Sizer, Matt Feazell, and Sean Bieri. Joining them will be other well known local artists Eric Millikin, Jennifer Rose Evans, and Chris Houghton. The Covered exhibit also features new work by many others, including Bryan Durren, Heather Hansma, Lizz James, Jesse Hughes and a piece by Masheka Wood from New York.
The opening reception for the Covered exhibit will be on Wednesday January 13th from 7pm to 10 pm. And the art will be on view until Saturday March 6th.
HEADSPACE Gallery is inside Green Brain Comics which is located at 13210 Michigan Avenue in East Downtown Dearborn. More information is available at www.greenbrain.biz or by calling 313-582-9444
This weekend, on June 6th and 7th, I’ll be sharing a table with Mikhaela Reid, Brian McFadden, and Melissa Jean Gibson at the MoCCA Festival 2009, located at the 69th Regiment Armory at Lexington Avenue and 25th Street in NYC. Come buy my mini-comic “SO, YOU’VE BEEN LAID OFF?!” and other cool stuff at table 426.
69th Regiment Armory
68 Lexington Avenue, between 25th and 26th Streets
June 6th and 7th, 11am-6pm
$10 per day
$15 per weekend
MoCCA Members: $10 per weekend
On Saturday June 7th and Sunday June 8th, my new mini-comic “So, You’ve Been Laid Off?!” will be at the 2008 MoCCA Art Festival at NYC’s Puck Building from 11am-6pm. If this is your first time getting the shaft from your “day job” (a.k.a. outsourced, downsized, made redundant), it’s a handy little booklet created to guide and comfort you in these troubling times. For everyone else, it is a grim soulless reminder of the vicious circle of employment purgatory.
Have a super weekend!!
What better way to start off the new year than to by reminiscing about some of the cinematic monstrosities of last year?
In a last minute plot twist, I managed to snag a table at MOCCA‘s 2007 Art Festival June 23rd & 24th with Mikhaela Reid, Brian McFadden and Ayo Brathwaite. Come see us at table C21 (right next to the Mens’ pooper) and buy my book “DEEP DOODLE” for the special convention price of $8!!!!
Much thanks to my friend Devin Quin who supplied the table to me when he had to bow out (due to his band, The Scurvy Pirates, performing in the Mermaid Day Parade at Coney Island this Saturday).
