MOVING SUCKS! (And so does Enterprise!) Print E-mail
Written by Bob Almond   
Saturday, 08 May 2010 12:35

     That's about as eloquent as I feel right now.  And, no, I'm not moving the website, just myself physically.  I've moved a few times in my life and hated it abysmally each and every time but I haven't had to relocate for over nine years, thankfully.  Until now.  With the economic downturn, lowering of property values, the federal incentive program for first time home-owners, and a city rehab program loan, we can finally afford our first home!  So this moving is a CELEBRATION, even with all of the stress and chaos involved that I so truly detest;-)  

     So between that, Inkwell Award duties, conventions and signings,and commissions, I am behind on just about everything and this site is no exception.  I have the Commission Gallery and Photos section to update following Pittsburgh Comicon and Free Comic Day and that will probably take place later this month along with The Granite State Comic Con. 

     Speaking of Pittsburgh, let me express how much the car rental business Enterprise sucks.  For the roadtrip I shared with Zeke Savory, Jason Casey, Hannibal King, and Alyn Bergstrom, we discovered on the morning of the drive from Massachusetts that our reserved vehicle was NOT available.  We had to drive two towns away for an available one (already disappointing as the problem was THEIR fault so why are WE fetching the automobile???).  Upon receipt it wasn't the vehicle we had reserved with the extra luggage room we needed and the same type we used the previous September for the same trip to the same show.  We couldn't afford to cancel so we loaded up the SUV, completely blocking the rear window and blocking us all in with items under our feet, besides us, etc., basically a traveling violation or suicidal scenario.  We started out two hours late for the drive and thanks to a downed power line in the road in PA (something we would've avoided had we been on time) we had to take an alternate route and we ultimately arrived three hours later than planned, missing the show's event for that evening!  While I tried to call ahead to my roommates who were waiting for me to enter our room (but failing to do so for an hour due to cell deadzones in the dark redneck territory) Alyn tried to make calls to switch to a better vehicle that night and all weekend. In the end we were told that there wasn't any transfers available in Pittsburgh or the entire region.  So buying some bungy cords we had to pack up my monster-sized hardcase Samsonite in the roof and repeated our death-defying cruise home (in the rain and with a GPS that went loco on us, but that's not relevant to the Enterprise focus;-))  Upon our return Zeke and complaint the manager actually was on the defense that we should've cancelled our trip.... I made clear that we'd never use Enterprise again...not that they seemed to care.  Or did we at that time, only sweet sleep called to us.  Something I'm yearning for right now in fact.

Mike Gelbwasser did a feature ("Comic Con a Big Draw") on the upcoming Boston Comic Con and was cool about mentioning me and my Inkwell Awards charity!

'Inkblots' has moved! Print E-mail
Written by Bob Almond   
Friday, 02 April 2010 15:45

I've been writing my inker-centric 'Inkblots' column for Sketch Magazine since 2006 from issues 30-39 but there's been a several month gap since that issue and the publisher hasn't offered any status updates leaving me with no answers for inquirying fans at the conventions I attend.  So with my editor's understanding I have accepted the offer of Rik Offenberger of to run my column there as of yesterday.  Since I had quite a few topics completed and in the can for months and even years, I started out with my annual Inkwell Awards results for 2009 which had a note about the passing of Dave Simons (which occurred almost a year ago). The second topic "Name that Inking Style" was one I've been wanting to see 'print' for a couple of years and is now public.  In the future I may run my previously-published columns, revised, at the site, as well as new ones.  My status is still active at Sketch for the time being, albeit in limbo with the magazine itself. Hopefully issue 40 will ship soon which has both part of my origin story, originally printed out of order with part two in issue 38.  The official site has 41 announced as shipping in January but that's way out of date at this point....a step-by-step tutorial with my inks over Sal Velluto's The Phantom is slated for that one. Please post at the venue and show me some love and support!

I just got in two of the  three color versions of the Pittsburgh Comicon t-shirt art as mentioned in the last column.  They were done by artist Koa Beam. Only the black background isn't here.  Which version do you like better?

I thought I'd put a spotlight my upcoming shows and signings in this entry.  Right around the corner is the Boston Comic Con on April 10-11 at a new venue and a cast of thousands where I will debut the new Inkwell Awards brochure and 2010 Donation Book and my family will spend the Sunday with me.  On April 23-25 I will make the annual roadtrip with Zeke, Alyn, and Bob to the Pittsburgh Comicon, which has become like a 'home' show to me.  Not only did they have me contribute to the show's t-shirt art inking over Glenn Klimeck's image with Iron Man and Black Widow in anticipation of Iron Man 2 (I'll post a color file if I'm sent one in a separate entry) but this is the venue that will introduce model Chrissy Cutler as the Inkwell's spokeperson Ms. Inkwell.  And don't forget Inkwell Hall of Fame namesake Joltin' Joe Sinnott!  For Free Comic Book Day on May 1st I was invited to two different venues this year, (three actually but I had to turn down the last one) which I find amusing as some years I don't invited anywhere;-)  I'll start off at the legendary That's Entertainment in Worcester, MA, my second signing there to date, from 12 to 3 with I'm sure more yet to-be-announced guests, and then hustle on over to New England Comics in my hometown of New Bedford to share space with artist Juli Mayers from 4-6pm.  I was invited to attend the Granite State Comic Con later that month on the 23rd and this will be my third? appearance there for the Proulx brothers at Double Midnight Comics.  And lastly, after a four year absence, I will return to the magical Heroes Con on June 4-6 along with Ms. Inkwell and perhaps the largest contingent of Inkwell Awards members since the 2009 NYCC such as Bob Shaw, Jimmy Tournas, Nathan Massengill, Randy Green, Adam Hughes, Ethan Van Sciver, and Tim Townsend! Wow, what a plugapalooza!

Later I'll discuss the second half of the year.  If I have any strength left in me....
