A show of my work is currently on display in the front gallery of the Middletown Arts Center in Middletown, Ohio.
Our opening reception, part of the Betty Hughes Memorial Exhibition, is scheduled for Friday, August 3, 2018, 6:00-8:00 p.m. I hope to see all of you there!
My work will remain on display through September 6, 2018 — A great opportunity to get copies of my books and comics, which will be sold through the center. All three volumes of my Tailipoe series, as well as copes of the Cap’n Catnip comic are available.
Included for your enjoyment: Archie artwork; book illustrations; an art series based on classic games and toys; and the complete artwork from a 6-page Archie story with collaborator Stan Goldberg, from Archie Comics #540,“The Man of Mystery.”
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!
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 your chance to grab a copy of Cap’n Catnip #2, written by me and drawn by the Cap’n’s co-creator, Tim Fuller! Backup atory by me and the great Daryll Collins! It will be waiting for you at my booth, #227, at the Cincinnati Comic Expo! Click for details and I’ll tell you more about Cap’n Catnip later.
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!
