Meet me at Cartoon Crossroads Columbus, the free, citywide arts festival hosted by people and places with a passion for cartoon arts. CXC 2018 is in Columbus, Ohio, and the dates are September 27-30.
I’ll be signing and selling books and art at the National Cartoonists Society table (table #55) at the Columbus Metropolitan Library, 96 S Grant Avenue, Columbus, Ohio. I’m there on Saturday from 11:00 am – 1:00 pm, and Sunday from 1:00 – 5:00 pm.
I met up with my Cap’n Catnip collaborator, terrific Tim Fuller, at the opening of the Illustration Domination art show at Clermont College in Batavia (Cincinnati area) Ohio. Tim was displaying some Catnip pages and art!
A new issue of Catnip will be released imminently, and Tim and I, along with Daryll Collins, are already working on the follow-up!
With the announced closing of Geppi’s Entertainment Museum in Baltimore, MD, and the relocation of its exhibits to the Library of Congress, here is the cover of the 2008 Free Comic Book Day edition of Jughead, which I wrote, and Stan Goldberg illustrated. The story takes place in Geppi’s museum.
Another Ed-U-Card game, with flip animation on the back of the deck. Play-wise, this game (called Casper and his TV Pals) is functionally identical to the Popeye deck, with Harvey Comics characters swapped out to replace the Thimble Theater bunch.
Among the characters selected for use in the game is Little Audrey, who was created by Paramount Pictures’ Famous Studios to replace the Little Lulu series. She later starred in a comic book series first published by St. john, and later by Harvey Comics.
Found! Perhaps the only existing Craig Boldman/Joe Kubert art collaboration.
I was one of the early students at The Joe Kubert School of Cartoon and Graphic Art in Dover, New Jersey, and as such, would occasionally be treated/subjected to the terrifying advent of Joe Kubert, comic book legend, looking over my shoulder while I was still trying to find my way around a piece of drawing paper and which end of a pencil was up. And once in a while, he’d excuse me from my chair and say, “Let me show you…”
Here’s a piece of promotional art for next week’s Pikeville (KY) Comic-Con! Should be a great occasion. I’ll be seated next to my friend and Cap’n Catnip collaborator, Tim Fuller. Also in the house will be Gary Kwapisz (artist of many issues of Savage Sword of Conan, among many other credits), whom I haven’t seen in a few years since a Lexington convention.
Please come if you can! I’ll be selling books, doing my Super-Caricatures and meeting, greeting and chatting. You can’t avoid me; I’ll be seated opposite the TARDIS!
Date With Debbie was a comic book title published by DC Comics in the late 1960’s. Very much in the Archie mold, this drawing was a commission for my friend Chris Lambert. It was used in his great new book, ‘My Favorite Year In Comics…1968.’
Hop over to my commissions page or send me an e-mail and request an art commission of your own!
