The Official Bob Almond Website: updated monthly!
The Inkwell Store is now live! Print E-mail

The next updated section at this site is the Store page, previously known as the Art For Sale section on the archived site.

It now can inform interested parties about Original Art, Commissions, Color Prints, Discounted Collections, and Sketchbooks- all for sale and all available!  Looking for a comic by me that you cannot find?  Ask me...I might have it and at a lot cheaper than the local retailer, and signed!  You can also ship books/merchandise to me to autograph if you'd like.  Just click the 'Store' link on the top of this page's navigational links and LMK what I can help you with!

These go back a couple of months but, as you already know, I wasn't exactly on top of stuff at this site a couple of months ago

Where the hell have I been?!? Print E-mail

Yeah, some of my site regulars know that I've always taken pride in having monthly updates, which I honored most of the time. But just as Rich Lane and I started to construct the new pages, my pal Sal (Velluto) came a callin' asking me to help him out again on the Phantom ("The Phantom: Johnny Hotwire- The Outlaw Days") for Sweden's Egmont Publishing.

This took me out of the picture for 6 weeks and just as a finished that commercial artist contact Jeff Lavezoli (whom I met at Pittsburgh Comic Con a few years ago and for those familiar with my commission gallery knows I did some 'Bryant Man' work inking him) emailed me and hired me to ink a Christmas card assignment for a company (don't worry, it'll eventually show up in the same-mentioned gallery).  And I've been playing catch-up ever since around the house (holiday greeting cards, taxbook, shopping, appointments, etc.) and with The Inkwell Awards regarding the newly appointed '10 Nomination Committee, new site additions, and boy, you won't believe what's been in the works for our 3rd year- no exaggeration!

And I'll be tackling commissions in a few days. But this site will take up much of my time.  Now that the Bio, Credits, Contributors, and Web Links sections are done, Rich and I are now eagerly working on getting this Homepage and News/ solicitations format all laid out.  Following that we'll tackle the remaining sections one at a time in no particular order: the Store, Photos, Special Features, and the prolific Galleries. So be patient and I'll keep you posted and before long I'll be back to monthly updates as we enter my site's 10-year anniversary in 2010.  In the meantime, feel free to post comments and ask questions. Do you have any suggestions or requests? And happy holidays to all!!!

Sketch Magazine: back on schedule! Print E-mail

As reported at their site Sketch Magazine will be back on track by next month after a several month absence since issue 39 shipped.  For issue 40 my 'Inkblots' column will correct the 2-part article "Getting There: My very Own Origin" and "Staying There" as part 2 was printed in issue 38 without a part one preceding it!  Number 40 will have both. Then issue 41 will finally post the '09 Inkwell Awards results and some words on Dave Simons and 42 will print a tutorial on inking a sequential Sal Velluto page on The Phantom for Sweden's Egmont Publishing.

My return to the North East Comic Con (for the 1st time!) Print E-mail

Friday, 11 December 2009 21:17

For those interested,  the next show that I'll be attending is the North East Comic Con (formerly the New England Comic Con that I attended this past fall) in Boston on Sunday January 10, 2010 with headliners Billy Tucci and Ethan Van Sciver in attendance.  Besides my Inkwell Awards, local talent will also be in attendance.  For more info: I'll also be at the Boston Comic Con on April 10 & 11 and the Pittsburgh Comic Con on April 23-25 but I'll post more about those shows as the dates get closer.

I'll be attending the Boston Comic Con on October 24 & 25.  Besides my own material being available for sale (original art, prints, comics & trades, sketchbooks, etc) I'll be there representing The Inkwell Awards with Jimmy Tournas on another adjacent table.  We'll have lots of donated stuff for sale as well besides the usual t-shirts and sketchbooks.  I look forward to seeing you there!!
