The Official Bob Almond Website: updated monthly!
Updated Monthly (but not really!) Print E-mail
Written by Bob Almond

Yes, a sign of life!  I am indeed alive!


What happened was that I was suddenly and inexplicably unable to access my website's admin section for doing edits not long after my last article was posted. For many months. And you might recall, if you hav a reeeeally good memory, that I didn't have a maintenance support person anymore and a well-intentioned someone subsequently offered to help me out but he ultimately got caught up in his own dramatic life. Until finally my buddy Craig Rousseau found the time to fix the problem last week.


The problem is that I do not know HOW to fix the sentence above that says "The Official Bob Almond Website: updated monthly!"  But it's not essential so I'm not going to waste more of Craig's time. Regular visitors will know that until further notice I am regrettably stuck with that statement.


Anyway, in a nutshell since my last article, my commissions gallery is completely up to date. I just updated my newsflash 'Public Appearances' schedule and solicitations.  Yes, I know, there's not much for me to plug these days.  But it's not because of a lack of work. In fact I'm busier than ever.  My last gig lasted almost two years but due to a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) I haven't been able to say much about it.  As that assignment slowed down while the ip owners pitched around the property to publishers, I was offered another assignment with yet another NDA!  It's intended as a 6-8-issue series and I start it this week but i can't say much more than that. Except that it'll be a more intense production schedule.  So, while I may now have access to this website, thank God, tragically my updates will be more infrequent (READ= NOT MONTHLY) and the solicitations will be mostly reprints of my older work.  Like the recently announced "Black Panther by Christopher Priest: The Complete Collection" three volume trade collection being released this year of the entire 62-issue run including all of the work I did with Priest and Sal Velluto. FINALLY!  From Marvel!  And in ENGLISH this time!


I'll keep you posted when I know something more. But between that, my commission list being closed, and no convention appearances until June, I honestly wouldn't expect many updates here. But as usual, I_will_try.  And you can hear from me on Facebook and the Inkwell Awards site. Things should get interesting for 2015.  I truly hope you will join me for all of the fascinating developments.

The Official Bob Almond Website: Updated, err, here and there. Print E-mail

Yes, it's been way too long. Yes, I've been busy, but there's also not exactly been much of any new items to talk about here since my project has been one of non-disclosure. I also just suddenly inexplicably lost my longtime site maintenence assistant. So while I intend to remove the "Updated Monthly" part above since that isn't who I am anymore, I need the kindness of strangers to help me do so.  That's ok, though, because a friend just offered up his own reliable, tech-savvy friend to help me out. So I will be doing updates over the next few days and on an infrequent basis after that. I'll be removing the solicitations until there's something new or reprinted worth mentioning and my commissions gallery really needs some updating, possibly almost a year's worth of files and info.  So I thank you if you were one of the two faithful fans/friends who has been periodically checking in and I apologize for the lack of activity here. I will always strive to do better. Talk shortly;-)


And don't forget to come by and see me and the Inkwell Awards at the Rhode Island Comic Con on November 1-2!

I have been VERY busy working on my project (which I still cannot discuss due to a NDA) so yes, I'm sad to say that website updates have suffered regretably.  But I posted below about Inkwell Awards voting info and above about my convention plans for 2014.  I will update my commission gallery ASAP as I am way behind with that.  My sincere apologies and best wishes to you all!

Inkwell Awards voting runs from April 15-30! Print E-mail

The Inkwell Awards, a non-profit organization devoted to educating and promoting the art of inking, invites the public to vote for the industry's best of the past year. The official public ballot will be available on the Inkwell Awards' homepage from April 15 through April 30. Voting is open to everyone, whether fans or professional peers. The winners will be announced at the live awards ceremony at Heroes Con in Charlotte, NC June 20-22 on Saturday the 21st at 12:30pm.

As with last year, the ballot will still list the nominees for the Joe Sinnott Hall of Fame lifetime achievement award, which were chosen by the internal and separate Hall of Fame Nomination Committee (made up of the core committee, former committee members, ambassadors, contributors and existing Hall of Fame award recipients). To avoid a “popularity contest” where recent names have more influence than past masters, the two winners have been chosen by the HoF Nomination Committee rather than the public and will be announced at the ceremony. Current nominees are listed as a courtesy. Past Hall of Fame award recipients include Joe Sinnott, Terry Austin & Dick Giordano, Klaus Janson & Al Williamson, Wallace Wood & Kevin Nowlan, Mark McKenna & Scott Williams, and last year, Dick Ayers & Murphy Anderson.

“We’re so excited for this event, where everyone’s hard work will pay off and the best of the best ink artists and their work will be recognized,” said Bob Almond, founder and director of The Inkwell Awards (AKA "The Inkwells"). "Inkers have their own fans and followers, and often go unsung or glossed over in traditional awards events. Ours caters specifically to ink artists and allows several to be recognized and appreciated in various categories.”

Ballots and instructions can be viewed at The Inkwells' web site beginning on tax day, April 15. A direct link will additionally be posted on their Facebook group page, where people may also ask any questions.

The Inkwell Awards is an official 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose mission is to educate and promote the art form of comic-book inking, as well as annually recognize and award the best ink artists and their work. Now in its seventh year, the organization is overseen by a committee of industry professionals and assisted by various professional ambassadors and numerous contributors. They sponsor the Dave Simons Inkwell Memorial Scholarship Fund for the Kubert School and host the Joe Sinnott Hall of Fame Award.

My last post talks about how I've not been around and that I would poke my head out publicly at Rhode Island Comic Con as 'proof of life'.  Well, if you were one of those who saw me Saturday November 2 in Providence, I was probably looking more like proof of imminent death! After setting up at the convention hall Friday night I developed immediate and excruciating abdominal pains followed by flu-like symptoms.  Due to the obligations to my non-profit Inkwell Awards and the attending team with fundraising, I went in only to be in agony all day and leave 90 minutes before the show ended. The next morning I went back but simply in order to pack up my stuff and the Inkwell material and explain to the promoter that I had to leave and was going straight to the ER (unfortunate being that I had prepared for days before the show and I had done relatively well that Saturday).  That lead to 13 days in the hospital after being diagnosed with acute diverticulitis (I'd thought it was my gall bladder or appendix).  I've had this problem for over a decade but the flare ups had never been so sudden or painful as to send me to the hospital for what is my first actual admittance. After being hooked up to ivs, starving, allowed only ice chips for much of my stay, taking narcotics for my pain, experiencing nausea and migraines, and experiencing overall misery (that I will save you the nasty details of), a drainage tube was inserted in me to drain the infection from the abscesses and I was sent home last Friday night.  I've been slowly recovering, I'm on solid food again, and I'm waiting for the tube to be removed....shooting for tomorrow at this point.  There is elective surgery being planned for my near-future to remove the problematic section of colon in this drama.  But for now, I'm trying to increase my strength, spirit and work production and return to a semblance of normalcy.  Much thanks to those of you who have wished me well on my Facebook page and elsewhere.  That went a long way.  I will survive;-)
