HAPPY BELATED NEW YEAR! Print E-mail
Written by Bob Almond   
Sunday, 14 January 2018 14:14

HAPPY BELATED NEW YEAR! Yes, sorry, I got sucked up into the holidays and with prepping for and attending final show dates the last 2 months. Some evens and odds:  Sadly, my Gallery section is still MIA as Rhys Evans, my Techno-God at Inkwellawards.com continues to work on it in his spare (ha!) time. It's been about a year and he says he's wrapping things up. Good thing because I have folders reserving 32 commission files to upload!

 

I am doing commissions on hand and would be happy to take on more. I am still inking for Ravesnake and there might be new work within sight from Kingstone so I'm in a holding pattern there. I just posted the presently confrimed conventions for the year but that list will surely grow. 

 

There's also a new DK Publishing book out that interested me and possibly some of you Black Panther fans: Black Panther: The Ultimate Guide. I noticed that it's smaller in size than past Marvel and DC editions and there's no longer a dust jacket but if that's what they needed to do to keep the price from rising then so be it. It's got a Foreward by master scribe Don McGregor and multitudes of art from numerous sources, incluyding Sal Velluto and yours truly.  My only gripe about these books is that they don't credit any of the artists for their printed work. DC volumes used to at least list all artists who's works werre included on the final acknowledgments page. Marvel doesn't supply a list apparently since it doesn't do the same. It's a hardcover at 200 pages for $24.99 unless you can get it discounted from your retailer in a backorder or find one at B&N Books or Amazon online. Happy hunting!

 

That's all I got for now but you're sure to hear from me next month when the Panther film is out. I've waited almost 20 years for this and I think it'll be worth the wait. Take care!

Yet ANOTHER Late Convention Tour Addition! Print E-mail
Written by Bob Almond   
Monday, 30 October 2017 14:45

I thought we were done for the year with the newly-added New Jersey Comic Expo show in mid-November following our appearance at Rhode Island Comic Con the weekend before that as I recently announced. But the non-profit INKWELL AWARDS and I have again been invited to a new venue! Inkwell spokesmodel Hailey Skaza-Gagne & I will be appearing at ACE COMIC CON: LONG ISLAND, NY at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum on December 8-10 with our usual display set-up. This venue is their first location for the expanding Ace Universe of Entertainment. Special Thanks to Spencer Beck who has been a HUGE support to our fundraising! That's a record 9 events this year for us! We usually only do 5-6 shows annually but there was more interest/demand for us in 2017. I'm even more excited for 2018 as we celebrate our 10th anniversary!

LATE CONVENTION TOUR ADDITION! Print E-mail
Written by Bob Almond   
Monday, 16 October 2017 00:56

Since my last report I was invited to the New Jersey Comic Expo (thanks to Spencer Beck) along with my Inkwell Awards partner, spokesmodel Hailey Skaza-Gagne.  It takes place for two days on November 18-19 the weekend following Rhode Island Con and before Thanksgiving. We will be fully set up with space. New Jersey has been the most supportive state among promoters as we were invited by 3 NJ show promoters this year with one already attended. We are both excited to check out the first time location! Maybe we'll see you there!

Commissions, shows and the Tick! Print E-mail
Written by Bob Almond   
Monday, 09 October 2017 17:33

SHOWS: Hailey and I attended all of the summer/fall shows with much fun and satisfaction! However, Rhode Island, our last 2017 scheduled show, will not be an official weekend event now due to altered accommodations. We will be there all day Friday, maybe part of Saturday and part of Sunday. I will be updating my 2018 schedule soon!

 

COMMISSIONS: My list is still closed as I catch up on belated ones but I am almost finished. I should be lifting the ban soon so please keep checking here.

 

THE TICK: After Mike Lilly and I did the Tick#1 cover together we were asked to do the next cover. I haven't seen that yet but hopefully any day now.

UPDATES: THE SEQUEL Print E-mail
Written by Bob Almond

Sorry for not being around. Here's an update since last time:

 

*HEALTH: My sleep apnea problem has improved thanks to the CPAP so I'm more rested, not oversleeping or as groggy.  So now that my scheduling time is better I'm starting to resume my power walking, but only 1-2 days a week at the moment because my convention schedule has my head spinning. Once that period passes late in August I will work towards 4-5 days a week. The goal being to be able to altogether lose the apnea and diabetes.

CONVENTIONS: After my previously mentioned "upcoming stops" I did a signing at Rubber Chicken Comics on July 11. The next show for myself and Hailey is Boston Con on August 11-13, my return to that venue after at least 6 years. The new management is Fan Expo. I don't have an Inkwell Awards table this time but I am eager to check things out and talk to management about the future. After that is our third return to Terrificon the following weekend at the Mohegan Sun. And that's the summer end of the tour as we don't go anywhere until November 10-12 to the Rhode Island Comic Con.

*The authorship job position didn't happen because they didn't realize the related costs involved which was beyond their budget.

*The Tick cover was done, is atteched below, and it will debut at Boston Con as a New England Comics Exclusive where Mike Lilly and I will be there to sign it (David Ocampo colored it). I hope to have new Tick news next time;-)

*Still no updates about the updated website and it's gallery. I'm tracking all the commissions I do so that when the time comes I'll have a huge update in that section.

Hope to talk again soon!

Where have I been? Well, my productivity was compromised when I developed sleep apnea last year. I was constantly oversleeping, taking 1-2 hours to wake up and my brain was a mess. After 3 sleep studies, a long wait for insurance approval and some scheduling snafus I finally got my cpap breathing apparatus yesterday and I look forward to resting properly on less sleep and feeling more energized. And more productivity, thankfully, especially with a few irons in the fire...

*After doing some commissions I resumed my work for Ravesnake Media and directing the Inkwell Awards which has been honestly non-stop. In-between there's been drama in that my father-in-law died, my friend Bernie Wrightson died, Inkwell ambassador Rich Buckler passed on recently and now longtime Inkwell soldier and friend Stacey Aragon has departed this mortal coil after a decade of battling colo-rectal cancer.

*We're winding things down at the Inkwells because we're only 3 weeks from the big finale show and ceremony. Next week is the Albany Con and I just updated my public appearances list above and added the Garden State Comic Fest that Hailey Skaza-Gagne (Ms. Inkwell) were invited to since the last convention tour report, a new venue for us.

*I've been approached about writing something as an author.  I submitted the outline yesterday so it may be a while before I find out if things are approved or not.  Once I know I will announce that gig.  It'll sure make things even more hectic for about 6 months.

*It looks like I will be reunited with Mike Lilly for a Tick cover for New England Comics. Somehow I need to fit that in.

*Not related to my goings-on I thought I'd mention my site's Commission Gallery hasn't been updated since December.  I didn't forget or get buried...There's a reason for that. I have a dozen completed new pieces and several on hold.  But I cannot load them to my Gallery because I'm having website issues. Inkwell tech guro and website maintenance contributor Rhys Evans is helping me to  rebuild the site and transfer it to Wrodpress from Joomla! It is hoped that the venue will work properly but I don't know how long it will take and if at that point I'll have time to upload all the new material.  I'll have to wait & see and take things gradually. Life has been very trying so I look forward to seeing you guys on the road!
