Titan Head. This new print will debut at the Sequential Smarts discussion I’m participating in on Wednesday night at the Skirball, so get tickets! The following week it’ll be available through my online store.
Original inks for a page from a graphic novel I’m working on. I’ll have a lot of original pages and drawings at the Skirball talk I’m participating in with Sina Grace, Hope Larson and Nick Thorburn. It’s next week, but you can get tickets now! (Tickets get you into the Gary Baseman exhibit too, so what are you doing sitting there not getting tickets?)
Me and Matt Sheean. From Care 2, inside Prophet #35, out next week (May 1st).
Sequential Smarts - the best thing ever.
Inspired by the illustrative world of Gary Baseman as explored in the exhibition Gary Baseman: The Door Is Always Open, attend this panel of graphic novelists as they discuss the conceptual underpinning of contemporary graphic storytelling and L.A.’s central place in the world of the graphic novel.
Like Gary Baseman, many graphic novelists use illustration to depict fantastic worlds of their own making. Panelists Sina Grace (Not My Bag and Li’l Depressed Boy), Hope Larson (A Wrinkle in Time, Who Is AC?), Nick Thorburn (author of What a Gas and lead singer of the band Islands), and Malachi Ward(Expansion, Utu, and Ritual) discuss their work and the world of the graphic novel. A Q&A and book signing follow the program.
Sponsored by The Skirball Cultural Center, and The Secret Headquarters, this is going to be an event to remember. All attendees get a limited edition print of the image above (signed by all four panelists).
Wednesday, May 8, 8:00 p.m.
Order tickets here: http://www.skirball.org/programs/readings-talks/sequential-smarts
This is going to be a lot of fun! I might even have something new just for the event.
parshnips asked: Your gouache work is sublime, do you mind me asking what materials you use?
I don’t use anything too fancy. The gouache is designer rather than acrylic, the brand I usually use is Daler Rowney. My brushes for painting are just an assortment of cheap stuff, I don’t have any brand loyalty there. Ideally I paint on a really thick, really soft paper. Not anything with a lot of tooth like watercolor paper. I don’t paint regularly enough to have honed in on the specific products I like to use.
bustermoody asked: hey dude- i saw you're involved in that letswatchstartrek website. great idea! love the show (well, TNG, DS9 and TOS)! love the comics up there too! is there a way for people to contribute art/comics?
We love getting art/comics contributions for Lets Watch Star Trek! Send me an email (email@example.com) with the drawing you’ve done and we’ll have a look. There aren’t really restrictions, although I’m not crazy about mashups.
A panel from the graphic novel I’m slowly working on. At this rate I’ll be done in about thirty years.
