Commissions and Prophet

I've been busy busy the last couple months.  I wrapped up a few comic book commissions over the holiday,





And, as you may have heard, I'll be joining the Prophet team with Brandon Graham, Ron Ackins, and Giannis Milongiannis in a few months!  You can read a little teaser here


Other than that, I'm getting back to work on a comic that got sidelined by a million little projects and laying the groundwork for an ongoing(?!) comic that I'll be doing quite a bit later this year.


Get pumped, 2014 is going to be bananas.

A Handful of Dust: 25 Years of the Sandman

I'll be in an epic show at Gallery Nucleus with a handful of friends and a veritable who's who of comic book greats, curated by the great Ryan Graff of Eidolon Fine Arts.

I'll be contributing two paintings, and I've been gathering a little collection of watercolors for just this occasion:




Blogger made this painting QUITE green :O


If you're in the LA area this weekend be sure to make it to this show, it's going to be bananas.

progress photos





A couple progress pics of a painting I’m sending off to a gallery in LA next week .  I don’t paint with watercolor super often, but I think I’m going to next year.
 
I’ll post details on the show as they come.  My super pal Michael Manomivibul is contributing a piece, and that’s reason enough to get all kinds of crazy stoked :O

Little Nemo

I was recently asked by Joshua O'Neill of Locust Moon Comics in Philadelphia to participate in his epic Little Nemo tribute book, and here's what I came up with:

This thing is colossal.  It's pretty much three of my usual comic pages smashed into one epic mega page.

Get that book when it comes out, it's going to be bananas!

Sinbad the sailor

Say hello to Sinbad the sailor.  A few minutes ago he tied himself to a giant piece of meat in hopes that an enormous eagle might grab it and pull him out of a valley full of elephant-eating snakes.




I recently painted Sinbad for a big group show.  He's made of watercolor, gouache, pastel, colored pencil, and of course, acrylic on 300 lbs watercolor paper.  I seriously can't help using every medium I own whenever I can.  Bill Sienkiewicz comic covers had a bigger impact on little Grim than I ever gave them credit for.

This weekend, for the first time ever, I’ll be selling the new zine-version of my comic Love Story in the Woods at the SF Zinefest for super cheap.

SF Zinefest next weekend

Coinciding with the San Francisco Zinefest next weekend, I just recently unearthed a gaggle of old Explorer’s Club journals!

Most of them are pretty beat up, missing pages, and look like they survived a fire or something, but they’re still fun to look through. Don’t tell the Smithsonian I’m selling them :O





See you there!
