IN THE WOODS on Inprnt. Giclee print on heavy archival-quality paper. Available in 12” x 16” and 18” x 24” sizes. All my available Inprnt-ables here. And there are still a few of the signed & numbered, 11” x 14” version available here.
MILES BY BICYCLE now on INPRNT. I was very proud of this drawing, originally for a friend undergoing surgery as a get-well present. And then I colored it up and monetized it into a print, and now I’m doing it again via Inprnt—so a snazzier, giclee-ier print. Get in there, jazz lovers and bike lovers; get in there and battle for supremacy.
THE GREATEST EXPLORER on INPRNT. This week I’m uploading some of my favorite of my prints to Inprnt. I got to see some of their work in person recently and was blown away by the quality and richness of the colors. If you haven’t ordered from them before, they’ve got a billion great prints on their, including some by friends of mine like Sam Bosma, Kali Ciesemier, and Aled Lewis.
INDIE ISLAND AHOY! This is one of two t-shirts that will be available exclusively at HeroesCon in two weeks (!). The other one is by the inestimable Jim Rugg. They’ll be printed on-site on your choice of a limited number of colors, although for my money I think the lighter the better on mine, and the darker the better on Jim’s. If you’ve never been to HeroesCon before, it’s pretty great—an old school mainstream comics show, which HAS: lots of comics dealers, lots of cheapo old comics, lots of famous drawers, and a famously robust original art crowd—it’s often described as a “sketchbook show” because there are so many artists as guests and so many people buying sketches. It also HAS “Indie Island”, a special area devoted to independent comics right at the center of the show. If you know me much, you might know that I worked for HeroesCon for most of my adult life before I foolishly quit to pursue a lucrative career in illustration. But before I did, I started Indie Island back in 2005, so it was very flattering to be asked to do a t-shirt design for them this year.
What HeroesCon LACKS is: a bunch of TV celebrities selling autographs; loud video game booths; movie crap; etc. HeroesCon is pretty great, and best of all it’s right here in the city I live in, so close I can take the city bus if I so choose. More as the show approaches, but GET EXCITED for now about this sweet t-shirt!
As this autoposts, I’m wending my way northwards to Toronto for the Toronto Comic Arts Festival, this Saturday and Sunday. There I’ll be selling all manner of my own books and prints, and will be on hand to sign copies of Nobrow #8, which will be debuting there. I’m very proud of my story “H.”, the last panel of which you see here. It’s a weird little thing, equal parts fussy and manic, in keeping with the theme of the book, “hysteria.” If you can’t make it to TCAF, you can preorder it here.
I’ll have the 16 original pieces of art that comprise the 40 panels of the story for sale, and I expect/hope that they’ll go quickly, so I would suggest hunting me down on Saturday rather than Sunday. Also on Sunday afternoon I’ll be interviewing Nao of Brown author Glyn Dillon as part of the festival, so mark your calendars accordingly. Wish me luck!
I’ve opened these up again for sale, though I’m still working on the last few from the last time. If you don’t mind waiting between 3 and 5 weeks to get yours, there are 10 available now, but probably not for very long.
