Happy birthday to me and happy 20th anniversary! Print E-mail
Written by Bob Almond   
Thursday, 05 January 2012 01:18

I just missed the end of the day, January 4th, to post about it but I don't want to diminish the significance of the occasion. Besides being my 45th birthday, today (yesterday) marks my 20th year as a professional ink artist in the comic book field. I was hired by editor Craig Anderson at Marvel Comics in October 1991 thanks to the efforts of Bernie Wrightson and especially Jim Starlin and my first pages of original pencil art by Angel Medina of 'Warlock and the Infinity Watch' #5 arrived on January 4th, 1992. I was so nervous to touch Angel's meticulous and powerful work. This was always my dream career goal and at the age of 25 it'd come true, and how many people can say that? I hoped to be able to reach five years and then I exceeded that and made ten and now two decades. The life of a freelance artist has been hard over the years and fraught with perils (like no work nor income to pay the bills) but I truly feel blessed and lucky to 'walk among the gods', my idols from childhood, and call them my friends. To play in the same sandbox as the legends of comicdom and play with their 'toys'. I wouldn't recommend the role of a starving artist to most folks, only those that love it and can't live without it. Like me. Call me a fool but how many people are known for their name and work around the globe? Money is important but some things are more essential, like spiritual peace and creative satisfaction. It's my reward, no matter how agonizing things get. Thankfully I have a wife who understands and supports me. And fans who enjoy my efforts. Thanks for listening to me rant and for your support, and I look forward to another twenty years.

An update and holiday greetings! Print E-mail
Written by Bob Almond   
Thursday, 01 December 2011 17:56

For those who have asked about my status or how I'm doing, thanks for your thoughtful consideration.  My dad was diagnosed with lung cancer two months ago and there are lesions on his liver and throughout his brain.  To say the least, the last two months have been unrelenting and overwhelming for me and my brother as caregivers. Thankfully my Avengers original art, as seen in the previous article here, sold and assisted my family since the caregiving for both of my parents (my mom's disabled) has been all-consuming time-wise, making getting to my commissions, and income, difficult. However, things have been slowly progressing since his chemo treatments and I am gradually returning to a normal schedule (whatever THAT means to a freelancer;-)) and I am accepting commissions but please understand that turnaround will be slower than usual and it's best to email me to see what my status is at that time.

In the meantime, with the holiday of Thanksgiving still fresh in mind, I wanted to give thanks to a great 2011 up until recently.  It was a year of considerable assignments and a multitude of commissions which is especially exhilarating to this comic book artist vet who's approaching his 20th year in the biz as of January 4th (incidentally, my birthday as well).  Hopefully a couple of gigs I've been patiently waiting for will take off soon in '12 as well as a possible teaching opportunity.   I wish all of my fans and supporters the best of holidays and a happiest of New Years.  Thanks kindly for your visits to my modest website and I will always do my best to keep things updated and fresh here.  See you on the other side, my friends!

I NEED CASH! Print E-mail

Saturday, 22 October 2011 13:42

This AVENGERS#162 (1977) original art by George Perez and Pablo Marcos is for sale on eBay is from my own collection....with the exception of a couple of years when a close friend held the piece for me, I've been the sole owner of this published art for the last 15+ years. This is obviously a classic sequence for Avenger fans and I didn't make this decision to sell lightly. I'm having some serious financial issues right now with the family and I hate parting with this page but I gots to do what I gots to do. Thanks much for looking.

I must pull out of the Southcoast Toy & Comic Show on November 6 as previously announced due to a family crisis.  I spoke to co-promoter Mark Gomes last night who completely understands.  My sincere apologies for those who were looking forward to seeing me.

Southcoast Toy & Comic Show appearance! Print E-mail
Written by Bob Almond   
Monday, 03 October 2011 11:27

I was invited to return to the Southcoast Toy & Comics Show in Fairhaven, MA for the third time.  It's on Sunday November 6 from 10-4 and will be my first show since June's Heroes Con as I've been very busy and purposely took myself off the tour circuit. I will have all of my usual merchandise for sale including discounted Heroes for Hire original art and a new Daredevil color print as well as Inkwell Awards stuff (hopefully, the debut of the 1st Sinnott Inking Challenge Gellery book).  If you're in the Bristol County region I hope to see you there!
