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!

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.

"BOB ALMOND DAY"! Print E-mail

Friendly Neighborhood Comics run by my longtime friend Ernie Pelletier has generously arranged for me to schedule a signing event in his store.

In recent years I've been found at his store on Free Comic Book Day in a duel commitment with him early in the day and a commute to

New England Comics: New Bedford for later in the day with my sometimes art partner Mike Lilly. But this year, FCBD was on Saturday

May 4 when I was scheduled at the Undiscovered Realm Comic Con May 4-5. So to make up for that (and to cover some swag I'd ordered there)

Ernie has devoted Saturday July 20 to "Bob Almond Day at FNC" from 11am - 3pm! A first of sorts, I will have all my usual Bob Almond-themed goods

in tow like original signed art, Black Panther trades and prints signed by me and, while suplies last, also by my legendary cohorts Sal Velluto and

Christopher Priest following a couple of shows we attended together, signed comics, other trades and other prints, and I plan to loosely draw up

at least 4 pencil sketches on backer boards to ink at the store upon request for $40 each deposited up front. If I sell all 4 or more and can't

finish in time at the event I will take them home to finish ahead of my commissions list for a meager shipping expense. Autographs are always

free with me and I only ask if the customer/fan can donate anything to my 501(c)(3) non-profit Inkwell Awards donation box on the table.

Besides my recent Angel Medina drawn and Tom Chu colored Thanos & Mistress Death new print I'd inked, I will be debuting my Art Adams drawn

and Chu colored X-Men: Days of Future Past print I inked. So drop by and take advantage of simultaneous deals from the store itself!

Now that the Great Philadelphia Comic Con!, the new host show to the Inkwell Awards awards ceremony, is now past, I will be focusing on getting caught up on commissions and prepping for more shows. So my commission list is still closed (except for those willing to wait) until I finish up a bunch of Tick wraparound blank covers, 3 "Common Elements" jobs for one regular client, and 2 busy recreations for another. (I'm also waiting for doing a figure in each of 2 jam pieces with the Avengers and the X-men. No assignments to do at the moment from Kingstone Comics nor the anticipated resumption of work from Ravesnake Media. But looking forward to a new Mike Lilly collaboration sometime.

 

My next show, a new one, is in a week at the Undiscovered Realm Comic Con in White Plains, NY on May 4-5 (first promo design by Andrew Harmon for my Facebook profile pic). The Inkwell Awards will also be in attendance but senior spokesmodel Hailey won't be able to make it so Kathy Denise taylor will be solo at this event. We will also be adjacent to our friend, the now retired Joe Sinnott (with his body guards Jim Tournas & Mark Sinnott). The show after that will be a return to the Garden State Comic Fest at the venue where we first attended their ice skating rink location in Morristown, NJ on June 29-30. The next two shows won't be until August with the Terrificon at the Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, CT on 8/9 - 8/11 and the Fan Expo Boston Con 8/16 - 8/18.

A "Not Much to Report" Report Print E-mail
Written by Bob Almond   
Tuesday, 20 November 2018 16:43

Hi! I've clearly not had the time to post much for many weeks. After the September shows in Salt Lake City, UT and Utica, NY I've been home buried under numerous commissions and I'm awaiting the next Mike Lilly assignment. (Those commissions will eventually wind up posted at a newly created ComicArtFans gallery which will continue from the most receny entry on this site's Gallery section.) I did make a one day signing appearance at Friendly Neighborhood Comics for their annual Halloween Comic Fest celebration and that went pretty well.I've also been struggling to keep up on duties for my Inkwell non-profit, as well as my health. I did finally get confirmed some convention appearances for 2019 and the first two are listed above in the NewsFlash. The big news there is that The Great Philadelphia Comic Con! will be our new host show now, not the East Coast Comicon as previously reported after ending our 8 year relationship with HeroesCon. So it might be a light year of locations for our annual tour so far (others being Terrificon and Fan Expo Boston Con in August and Granite State Comicon in September) but more might be added, and the few we have we'll make the most of.
