Hey Folks! Shaenon Garrity has posted the rest of our space opera collaboration, “Trash,” in her webcomics archive:
In other news, I will be exhibiting at the STUMPTOWN COMICS FEST in Portland this weekend. You’ll find me at TABLE M02, where I’ll be drawing sketches and… well, drawing sketches. IT WILL LOOK COOLER THAN IT SOUNDS, OK?! Drop by to commission a sketch or shoot the breeze!
I’ve posted the second part of my essays on the linework of Alex Toth:
There’ll be three or four more parts on the way. Thanks for reading!
I wrote a new Alex Toth essay. Check it out here.
I just read at the Comics Beat that the Eisner Award judges have inducted cartoonist Mort Meskin into the Eisner Award Hall of Fame. I had written a blog post/article last year arguing for his inclusion, and I’m thrilled to see him included. As I argued in my piece, Meskin was a key figure in the development of the American comics idiom and deserves wider recognition. Interested readers can find my article below, or linked in my Essays archive:
Meskin The Obscure, and The Hall of Fame
Each Sunday at Skin Horse, cartoonist Shaenon Garrity has been serializing pages from a graphic novel called TRASH that she and I pitched awhile back. Shaenon wrote it and I provided the art (and the tiny lettering — please excuse the ad hoc “pitch samples” font!). The publisher who first requested the pitch had acquired a too-similar property while we were putting this together, so we had to shelve it — which is a shame, because it was fun to draw and full of heart and good humor. And space opera!
Here’s what’s up so far, with a few more pages to come in the weeks ahead:
The upcoming issue I worked on (Hawkeye #7, Jan 30th) inspired me to do some Hawkeye pix:
Says CBR: “Marvel has provided an exclusive preview of ‘Hawkeye’ #7,” drawn by Steve Lieber (10 pages), and yours truly (10 pages). Here’s that preview.
I’m also pleased to see folks tweeting and blogging about it. At the Heroes Online blog, Rico Renzi writes: “I just heard Jesse Hamm is drawing an issue or two in 2013 and that guy kills too so grab Hawkeye before it goes away like all things this good do.” (I was actually only invited to draw half an issue..but who knows what the new year will bring?) And here’s a bunch of reactions to the preview from the Twittersphere:
All for now! Check back here for more art and updates in the New Year. Hejdå!
This one didn’t get much love on Tumblr but it’s still one of my faves. SO THERE.
