The Official Bob Almond Website: updated monthly!
LAST 2019 BOB ALMOND PUBLIC APPEARANCE! Print E-mail
Written by Bob Almond   
Monday, 25 November 2019 18:40

In an 11th hour development Bob and the Inkwell Awards were recently invited to the 4th SYRACUSE NEW YORK COMIC CON on Saturday December 7! It's a new venue for us and only a one-day show.

But the Inkwells will have senior contributor Mike Prast to help cover the booth and they'll be introducing the latest, new Ms. Inkwell spokesmodel Becka Sargent. Hope to see you there!

My Gallery on temporary(?) hiatus Print E-mail
Written by Bob Almond   
Tuesday, 12 November 2019 18:28

As I've mentioned here in the past, for years now my popular commission gallery has not been updated due to website problems going back to my webmaster who created this site after my original site was going to collapse under the weight of the files there. My second Joomla gallery here (@170+ entries) allowed me to expand from the original (@270+entries), now archived, and link to it, preserving the record of my career commissions and unpublished and try-out work. When I could no longer go in to update it it was in a state of limbo and my webmaster and I had a falling out with me so he was no help. I recently had my gallery chronicler Damon Owens help me launch my personal ComicArtFans gallery as a third location to post my past 70+entries I'd been saving on my desktop. (Just too bad it doesn't allow urls to link visitors to my archived and current galleries.) After six were posted my website server told me that the gallery section was taking up too much space and it had been scanned and I was told that I had to remove it within a week or risk my site shutting down and possibly not be retreivable. Thus I pulled in my two Inkwell Awards webmasters Rhys & Steven to help tech-ignorant me to save the material but first remove it post-haste. This immediate threat was resolved and this site's gallery doesn't exist now. Rhys was going to transfer it on WordPress and use Flickr for the gallery but he told me I'd lose all my archived material including the first 270+ of commission entries. So Original webmaster Tim Aslat is studying my Joomla site in hopes of upgrading all the necessary problem areas and have enough space for my gallery section. So in the meantime, I'm not sure if I'll continue adding entries to the CAF gallery but hopefully in 2020 I'll get my limbo gallery returned and have updated it with 70+entries. <crosses fingers>

 
I'll be celebrating Batman Day! Print E-mail
Written by Bob Almond   
Thursday, 19 September 2019 00:59

Last year my bud Mike Lilly appeared at That's Entertainment, a legendary comic book specialty shop in Worcester, MA, to sign on the 6th annual Batman Day. I helped him ink the Batman/Catwoman wedding print (colored by David Ocampo) that was given away to the first 100 attendees. But Mike wasn't able to get me invited to said event. This year he did. So last week I inked a new print image as seen here, also colored by David (who lives in Mexico so he won't be at this event). I'd attended this store several times over the years and the place is simply magical, like a time capsule comic book store from the late 1970s-1980s. One time I signed there alongside Mike when we were doing Annihilation: Conquest- Quasar with writer Christos Gage who's family lives nearby. So if you're in the area please consider dropping in, all the info is on the promo flyer below. I'll be the annoying, giddy, balding fankid. HA!

FanX Salt Lake Comic Con Fall 2019: The Reprise! Print E-mail
Written by Bob Almond   
Friday, 02 August 2019 14:29

I have the Terrificon to attend in a week and FanExpo Boston Con the weekend after that. But months

ago I was invited to return to the FanX Salt Lake Comic Con Fall 2019 for September 5-7 but

I couldn't officially make a statement until today! I, again, will be joining my oft-partner and pal

Sal Velluto from Black Panther, Captain Gravity, Aquaman, JSA, Bloodshot, the Kingstone Bible, the

Phantom and so much more! I had the greatest experience with the Utah community fans and staff so

I'm cheerfully hoping for more of that!

New, upcoming BLACK PANTHER items of note Print E-mail

Friday, 26 July 2019 21:35

I noticed in the August for October Previews catalog from Diamond that Marvel is soliciting

2 special projects with the King of Wakanda. The Vistions of Wakanda book will contain

interview material from myself & Sal Velluto and possibly reproduce some artwork by us.

The postcard book might also have some art reproduced by us but we don't know for sure

and, if so, will be a surprise like it was with the Marvel BP coloring book. Below I've posted

the images relased by Marvel and their solictation info. After I see them in the coming months

I'll be sure to inform on the specifics right here as usual!

Bob's been framed! Print E-mail

I've been slowly collecting photos that commission clients have sent me over time so I figured I have enough now to post an article. I'm always

stunned when I see images of my work framed and hung up alongside so many other greats. I thought you visitors might get a kick out of this.
