THE 2017 BOB ALMOND & INKWELL AWARDS TOUR Print E-mail
Written by Bob Almond   
Thursday, 01 December 2016 15:40

This is the verified and official list of conventions and events we'll be attending. I'll be traveling

with/setting up for the non-profit along with spokesmodel Ms. Inkwell Hailey Skaza-Gagne

(AKA Holly Black) at each stop unless it says otherwise. This is going to be a much busier than

usual year for us but besides our regular con supporters some new supportive shows are bringing

us out to new locations and that certainly helps with exposure. FCBD is pending for me.

THINGS THAT ARE SURREAL: Seeing My Original Art in Clients' Frames Print E-mail
Written by Bob Almond   
Friday, 18 November 2016 16:52

Every once in a while a customer who bought original art from me or a client who commissioned

me over the years will email me a thanks along with a photo file of their framed acquisition.  This 

always feels so weird to me seeing my work framed.  It makes me proud, of course, but I guess

it hasn't really settled in that after 25 years that something I worked on would be treasured

like that. Surreal, yes, but still rewarding and sincere thanks to all who have done so.

Client Christophe Palma includes 6 of my commissions out of the 7 on his wall.

The customer that bought this original cover art from VAMPIRELLA: REVELATIONS#2

by Mike Lilly and myself not only framed it but he's commissioned me to do

a loose recreation on it (the last commission presently on my docket).

A recent head & shoulders commission of the Incredible Hulk inked over a

Marvel artist probably most-closely attached to the character, the late

Herb Trimpe.

BLACK PANTHER COVER COMMISSIONS BY SAL & BOB! Print E-mail
Written by Bob Almond   
Friday, 18 November 2016 16:13

FROM SAL VELLUTO'S ANNOUNCEMENT ON FACEBOOK: 

A SPECIAL DEAL FOR ART COLLECTORS (Read to the end)

Our offer for the sale of the 3 originals (sketch, pencils, inks) of our
BLACK PANTHER variant cover has been well received. Bob Almond and I are now considering some potential buyers

and we¹ll be finalizing our sale around the time Marvel solicits the issue with our cover. IN THE MEANTIME... we¹d like

to offer 3 special commissions, based on the cover sketches Marvel didn¹t choose. They¹re all pretty evocative of the

spirit and the power of the BLACK PANTHER and would enrich any art collection since they¹re done by the art team

(Sal & Bob) who has drawn this beloved character more than anyone else in the business.

THIS IS HOW THE DEAL WORKS. 1) You get to choose one of the three sketches. (A, B or C) 2) I will draw a very tight

pencils version on cover stock, based on the sketch you choose. 3) Bob will ink my pencils on a separate cover stock.

(He will ink over "blue lines"). You will end up with 3 separate original pieces ( sketch, pencils and inks) for a special

price of $ 595.00 plus shipping. There will be only one set done per sketch, and will be adjudicated on a first come

first served basis. Please PM me or Bob for reservations and further details.

Check out Paul Mounts' colors to that Panther cover! Print E-mail
Written by Bob Almond   
Saturday, 05 November 2016 16:29

Our last article below discusses about the Black Panther variant cover we did and that I'd inform fans of any updates. Well for one, here's the digital colors that

Marvel commissioned longtime vet colorist to Paul Mounts to do on it! Also, the cover is listed as being reserved for Black Panther: World of Wakanda#6 but our

editors said that was just a placesetter in order to have info submitted to pay us through accounting, so I'm still not 100% sure where it'll wind up being printed.  

But you'll find out here once I know!

 

*UPDATE: AS THE SOLICITATION (to the left) SHOWS IT'LL APPEAR AS THE VARIANT COVER FOR BLACK PANTHER: WORLD OF WAKANDA#4.

Sal & Bob return to Black Panther after 15 years! Print E-mail
Written by Bob Almond   
Wednesday, 31 August 2016 23:27

Well, for a cover anyway!  (Bare witness to the closest thing to click bait for me;-))

 

Marvel hired Sal Velluto and myself last month to render a variant cover for the new Black Panther series by Ta-Nehisi Coates and Brian Stelfreeze. I inked the art while I was in-between the Twin Tiers and Terrificon shows. We'd offered our services as it'd been 15 years since we departed the title helmed by our pal Priest in 2002 with #49. Between the Panther's Marvel cinematic debut in CAPTAIN AMERCIA: CIVIL WAR and upcoming solo film for 2018 and this new series, the time was right to give it a shot.  It was a huge thrill for me to return to the property that Sal and I were probably most recognized for as a team with critical acclaim and award wins. Is there a chance of us illustrating an issue?  Well, Marvel knew we were interested but there wasn't a need for that at this time with scheduling.  But you never know!

 

I will post info when this art is available for sale (or if I get a color file).

Sorry for the Disappearing Act! Print E-mail

Yes, I know that my website has been down for two weeks. There were problems with my new server after trying to migrate from my old server. I just added in to the gallery section the latest show commissions I completed this summer (see newsflash updates above). Hopefully we're all good here now. Next week is the Twin Tiers Comic Con (August 13-14) in Elmira, NY and following that the Terrificon (August 19-21) in Uncasville, CT., my last two shows for 2016.    Ms. Inkwell Haily Skaza-Gagne and I hope to see you there!  Oh, and soon I have very exciting news to share here. For reelz!
