Comic Arts Brooklyn this Weekend

October 29, 2019

On Saturday I’ll be tabling all by my lonesome at Comic Arts Brooklyn! First time tabling in my own name at this fine show. I’ll have the usual fare: books, comics, and possibly a print or two. I’ll be at Table I18! It’s free to the public, so come on out!

Meanwhile, on the internet…here’s Johnny Cash from my Inktober Country Music Portrait Series still going strong over at Instagram! Only two more portraits to go! I’ve been enjoying them a lot, but I am SO looking forward to completing this project so I can go on a Social Media break for most of November! I love these self imposed disciplines, but the social media engagement has its costs! Artistically, I need an internet break and bad! So here’s to it!

Hope to see you at CAB!!

Inktober Series: Country Music Portraits

October 15, 2019

Over at my instagram account I am posting country music portraits every day as part of the Inktober tradition. Truth be told, I got started late and don’t even know if I’ll fulfill the full remaining days of October, but for now I am having a good time.  I recently watched the Ken Burns documentary on the history of country and it totally inspired me. It’s been fun to follow up this inspiration with so many portraits of artist I love.

I had the privilege of being photographed recently by the great Dmitri Kasterine. He wrote a little post about it and my work up on his blog.

I’ll add my own narrative to this experience: I was nervous to be photographed.  I hadn’t “posed” in 20 years and usually go running and screaming from any and all photos of myself. He made it easy and his only critique was, “Don’t smile!” As he says on his site, he likes to go beyond the polite face of his sitters. I think it shows.

I got to do 23 portraits of 4th graders for The New York Times Magazine‘s All Comics Kid’s Section in today’s print edition of the Sunday New York Times. It was a labor of love! Go get your hands on this amazing issue–so many beautiful stories!

True story!

UPDATE: I didn’t think of it, but after I posted this I realized that today would have been my mother’s 75th birthday. Happy Birthday, mom! Hope they have a case of Pall Malls wherever you are!
