The new issue is chock full of crime stories by yours truly, Scott Campbell, Joe White, Vamberto Maduro, and Nathan Stapley! Be forewarned though that some of the material is a little 'brash'. Here's a sample page from my story:

Dunk. A weekly comic strip.

I've started up a weekly comic strip on the Telltale Games website! It's called "Dunk" and it involves a comic strip artist named Dunkin who draws a strip called "Dank." There's a twist here though. I've been doing an actual "Dank" strip on the Telltale site for nearly two years previous. It's kind of like pulling the curtain back and seeing the creator beneath the creation. Go and have a look here. Once a week, every week.

Agent Peabody

Went to a hockey game last week and was lucky enough to witness this man providing security for the event. Jon aptly named him "agent Peabody". I wished I'd had a camera because this sketch from memory does him no justice I'm sure.

The 10 x 10 Post-it show in Lausanne, Switzerland!

I had meant to write about this earlier but better late than never right? Last weekend, if you happened to be in the vicinity of Lausanne, Switzerland, you would have caught the opening of the "10x 10 Post-it" art show by Atrabile. All the participating artists were asked to create an idea using 100 post-its, arranged in a 10 by 10 square. Below you'll see a closeup of one of my post-its.

And here's how it looked with all the post-its arranged together.

It was a fun piece to work on. I wish I lived in Switzerland so I could see what everyone else did for the show.

C'est trés bon! La force des choses!

In early September this year you'll see a French stand alone version of my "By Necessity" story that first appeared in Further Grickle. It'll be published by the good people of Atrabile in Switzerland. The book will sport a brand new cover design and everything!

Here's a sample of some of the translated panels:

It's funny how I hear completely different voices in my head when it's written in French.

Montreal show. My goodness.

I'm back from the "Music of Hickee Mountain" show that occurred at RedBird Studios in Montreal, Quebec. I can't think of a better trip I've had with the fellows. Here's the pieces that I displayed:

This one is titled "The Flute Exchange."

This piece is known as "The Guitar Gamble."

And last but not least, I present to you "The Tuba Mediator."

Thanks to everyone that came by our show. It was greatly appreciated and we all really enjoyed getting to know you folks!

We've got a June show coming up in Portland (June 7th at the Pony Club.) More details will be posted as it gets closer.

Oh man. APE 2007.

APE, holy moley! As you can see in the picture above, Scott Campbell and the Hickee crew were at all 4 of the Alternative Comics tables this year. Joshua Kemble, Vera Brosgol, Jen Wang, and wicked Jon Klassen were kind enough to keep us company too. We saw and talked to so many excellent folks that my head is still spinning. I rarely left the table this year but when I did I made sure to stop by the impressive Telltale booth to say "hi" to everyone. I also managed to finally meet and pick up some autographed Kevin Huizenga books. Very nice fellow, and man I love the work he's doing in comics.

The Indie show on Saturday was a real highlight too! Wall to wall people the whole night and nearly everything at the show sold. Solid. Check out the art online here.

Okay, gotta stop typing and conserve my energy for Montreal. There'll be another post with photos when I get back!

Along with my new mini "Old Man River" (see previous post) I'll be bringing a bunch of little paintings. They're mostly acrylic on canvas panels that are either 4x6, 5x7, or even 4x5. Tiny chunks of original Grickle art that you can take home! I'll be posting various ones on this blog up until APE. Enjoy.

Switzerland! Bile Noire!

The Swiss, unbeknownst to me until recently, have an affinity for Grickle. In the latest edition of "Bile Noire" I'm flattered and proud to say you'll find a translated version (French) of my story "Slight Abberation." If you're able to read "francaise" feel free to check out this write up.

There are a ton of great artists in the issue and it's well worth checking out if you can get your hands on a copy. Beautiful production values from the comic company, Atrabile.

Switzerland seems pretty darn awesome to me.

So there's a lot going on...

...and a lot that's going to be happening in the coming months in the world of Grickle and Hickee things. Plenty of art shows, new comics, and other stuff to announce. I'll try and keep everyone posted on the various events and happenings right here on this blog.

First up is APE 2007! I'll be there with the Hickee gang selling comics, maybe some new shirts, little paintings, and who knows? Perhaps a new mini comic too. For a taste of APE-like things to come, here's a little painting I've titled "Space Sadness" that will be in an art show in San Francisco on that weekend (April 21-22.)

...more details to follow.
