Check out this short and sweet video of yours truly drawing at West End… video by Zeeee!
Well, West End 2012 is in the bag… and it was fun! Thanks to all you Squiddies who made it out to see the Squid Gang! It’s always fun to see new and old faces… meet and hug folks… and find new Squid Fans and meet seasoned readers! It was somewhat of an effort to keep Harold away from the boozer booth (wine and drink-ee poos). But, he kept it under control. Here are some photos (from my camera & stick-figurer’s) of the fun times we had!
This is the work of Suzka. She is a long time Sand City artist and a friend. Suzka, or Susan Collins, is battling cancer… And she is showing a series of paintings she is calling the Chemo Diaries. Her work is hanging at The Independent (the HUGE building in Sand City …can’t miss it). And the opening is tonight. Come to West End Celebration this weekend and see her series or visit her Facebook page (Chemodiaries) to read more about Suzka and her amazing spirit.
West End is this weekend!
If you are here on the Monterey Bay, drop by the Squid Row booth, not far from the Music Main Stage. You’ll find new Squid Row goodies there. New buttons, magnets, watercolors… Harold will be there!
Also, as well… I’ve added a few new events in the events calendar… have a look see! There’s a large monkey in there… more to follow.
Okay, Art Fans… Do you like Zines? Do you like getting stuff in the mail? Do you like supporting artists/tooners? Then you’ll love this…
Starting in mid October, I will be distributing, via subscription, a new art/comics zine called Art-o-Rama. Does the title sound familiar? That’s because Randie, Spill & Enid make up that Art-o-Rama art club in Squid Row.
Each numbered issue of Art-o-Rama will be 8.5 inches by 5.5 inches and will consist of 12 pages with a card stock cover. The book will be filled with mini-comics, collage, art, recipes, photography, poetry, guest artists… and more. Squid Row will be spattered around inside… (think of mini comics with different characters… in a more graphic novel style…) Yes, this is a new, fun, and exciting way to experience Squid Row, art from Randie’s brush (and mine).
So how does this work, you ask? Okay… over on Etsy, you can find a subscription for the Art-o-Rama Zine… here’s the price breakdown:
For a year’s subscription (of 6 issues… one every other month starting in Oct ’12): $30 (no extra postage for US)
For a year’s subscription (6 issues) plus a numbered work of art (along with each issue): $50
So why not get stuff ?… and help out an artist/cartoonist person at the same time! Why not head over to Etsy and get in on this groovy deal!?
