Mini Print for Comicon 2011!`

Here’s the print! I’ll be exchanging 30 of these for shady favors (or $35) at Comicon starting on Friday. Same deal as previous cons, I don’t sell this to anyone unless they utter a particular phrase, in this case “I SHORE WUHD LAHK ONE’A DEM PRINTS.” I’d be glad to hear it in a really nice southern drawl.

Each 8″x 11″ print is signed and has a hand-drawn knife on it, each of them unique to the print. They are hand printed in that I used my hand to turn on the printer.

These little test prints generally sell out at the conventions in a day or two, so they’ll probably not be available afterwards unless some filthy type puts them on ebay for more than I’d wanna pay. This is a trial image for a larger screen print I’ll do, though the image itself will likely be altered a bit for the final version and won’t have the customized aspect.

If you need more info on my comicon doings, read this older post and understand everything!

Know my San Diego Comicon plans.

YEAAAAAAAAAAAACLICKMEAAAHHHH!!

It’s that time of year again, a time when a man’s fancy turns to bitching about how sweaty everyone around him is and wearing sandwich bags on his hands before shaking anyone’s hand.

Comicon 2011 is upon us once again, people, and that’s just bizarre, isn’t it?  How is it possible for the same year’s comicon to just keep repeating itself?  I don’t know, but that’s not my problem.  Here’s what’s going on there as far as my involvement goes.

1.  Professionally (I’m a professional, ya see)  I’ll be attending from Friday the 22nd to Sunday the 24th.  For the most part I’ll be at the Slave Labor Graphics booth (Booth 1815), but I might be signing at the Gallery Nucleus booth (Booth 2235) on Friday or Sunday as well.  Non-professionally, I am at the convention center year round, as I live in the walls like a stinking rat person, hoarding garbage and eating the end cap pieces of hot dogs.

2. NEW JTHM SHIRT.  

This one’s just in time for Comicon, so if you’re not there to get one from Slave Labor Graphic’s booth, there’s something just wrong with you and I’m not even sure why I’m still talking to you.  This shirt uses the J’s Not J print image, only in shirt form with a modified color palette.  These are on a truck heading to San Diego and I haven’t even seen them yet, so I hope they’re alright.  Even if they’re not alright, you should probably bring a garbage bag to fill up with all the shirts you’re gonna buy.

3.  STEAKFIST’S ESCAPE INTO DIMENSION TEN giclee print.

Gallery Nucleus is going to doing a new print of mine, and thought it would be nice to have me sign it at its premier at the San Diego Comicon.  I’ll probably make them regret thinking anything will ever be nice ever again, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t stop by on Friday the 22nd, 1PM (for now) and grab one to get signed.  Or just grab one, really, and don’t get it signed.  Just buy it, don’t make eye contact with anyone, and just sorta skulk off without a word.  That’d be pretty good too.

 

 

Signing these for Gallery Nucleus at their booth (2235) on Friday at 1-2 PM.  It’s a fast signing, so try to make it!  Might add another signing for these on Sunday, but not sure yet.

4.  STRANGE TALES PANEL:   FRIDAY the 22nd.

This is just a panel with a few of the artists that did work on Marvel’s Strange Tales anthologies.  I’ll be there mumbling incoherently about my experience working on the MODOK and Wolverine stories I did for them.  I will have some SHOCKING revelations (psst: no I won’t), so don’t miss it!  This is the official blurb from the program guide:

6:00-7:00 A Strange Tale of a Panel: Indie Creators on Marvel’s Strange Tales Excelsior! Show up early and stay late as some of comics’ best indie creators come out of the closet, revealing themselves as maniacal Marvel madmen. Witness twisted love for some of mainstream comics’ best characters! Forbidden fantasies fulfilled! Shannon “Too Much Coffee Man” Wheeler comes clean about his eco-terrorist Red Skull; Jhonen “The Homicidal Maniac”Vasquez mulls over M.O.D.O.K.; and Jeffrey “Incredible Change-bots” Brownmesses with the Merry Mutants. And more major terrific talents join this core crew, spilling secret stories from Marvel’s Strange TalesRoom 9

It’s going to be amazing, and if it isn’t I was probably just lying about it being amazing.

5.  SEEECRET PRINT!

Not so secret, really, but I can’t say just now what it’ll be as I’m not sure.  If it’s what I think I’m thinking it will be, it’ll be pretty fantastic.  I hope it’s not something awful, really.  Either way, more on this as I get more information out of myself.  This’ll be the usual deal I’ve been doing at conventions for the last year or so where I do a very small run of prints to sell to people who know a particular password that binds them to the print in question.  It’s like a Lord of the Rings situation, only it ends up with the buyer’s (the not very attractive ones anyhow) having to wash my car.

The password to buy this print will be:  ”AH SHORE WUD LAHK ONE’A DEM PRINTS”

If you could speak this in a real thick southern accent that would be awesome.  Please try.  As always, these will be going for $35 and all proceeds will go to too much pie in my stomach.

Anyhow, here’s a tiny sliver of a peek in case you’re that: impatient:

 

 

 

 

 

Wondercon Appearance + Custom Killerbunny Prints


So I’m making a surprise appearance at Wondercon this very Saturday, signing at the SLG booth from 2 to 4 PM.  Just like the ephemeral McRib I shall come and go, leaving people clutching their stomachs and screaming about how they maybe shouldn’t have eaten that McRib.

So there’s that.

In addition to simply BEING there, spreading my good cheer and as much of whatever this is growing on my hands as I can before the hazmat guys show up to haul me off, I’ll also have a small number of prints hidden in my special sack like I did at the last San Diego Con.  That seemed to work out rather nicely and it was fun making people give me a password to initiate the shady exchange of cash for trash.  that’s right, I rhymed.  I have music in me, okay??

Like before, the prints are a practice run for a bigger edition of larger screen-prints or giclees to be done at some point in the future.  At San Diego Con I had made printed just 25 Bolt Coughers, customizing them with hand painted ghosts.  The final, larger version, is over at Gallery Nucleus, just waiting for you to buy it and eat it or whatever it is people do with my stuff.

This time around it’s scary stencil image of Fillerbunny’s robotic nemesis Killerbunny.  There are 30 of these things, each one of them customized with an inky blob that looks suspiciously like Fillerbunny himself.  Like the custom Bolt Coughers, each Killerbunny print is $35, printed on 8in x 11in quality heavy matte, signed and dipped in demon urine.

Okay, I just asked and apparently they’re NOT dipped in ANY urine.  I asked some friends to do that for me, but they didn’t.  I guess I wasted thirteen bucks on barrels of demon urine.

Requiring people to say a password might sound like a pain in the ass, but trust me, it’s pretty fun.  Some of the people would not quite say it right, forgetting a word or just being too embarrassed to say it, and then would get angry or sad about not being able to buy a print.  It’s adorable.

THE KILLERBUNNY PRINT PASSWORD:

“PIZZAPANTS NEEDS RABBITS.”

That’s right, that’s the password.  If you can say it with a kind of caveman voice, too, that’d be pretty good.

So if you see me there at Wondercon, say the password and I’ll know you’re up for some cyborg rabbit action.  If you see me and you say anything else, I’ll know you’re my enemy.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bolt Cougher print!

This one is for all you out there who’ve ever wished they could float around in the clouds, spending your days sinking lightning bolts into various heads (also works for wishes involving said wishers’ heads caved in by bolts of lightning).

There was a bit of a preview of this print for the folks that showed up at the SD Comicon, but the final version is upon us thanks to the fine folks over at Gallery Nucleus, hopefully as the first of several ventures to be output by the elves they hire and beat into productivity there.

CLICK HERE TO IMPROVE EVERYTHING!

Bolt cougher actually began life as my section of a collaborative piece with J.R. Goldberg, Mr. Gauky, and Flawn, but after those fine artists all died mysteriously in a mysterious fire, I mysteriously rescued my contribution from the flames just in time, and transformed it into the image known the world round as ‘Bolt Cougher’.

Bolt Cougher is a 19″x13″ giclee print on archival watercolor paper and won’t be a limited run, but the first hundred buyers will get the only signed copies, so if signatures are your thing, be sure to grab one early or all those other people into signatures will torment you in ways only the damned would know.

This image shows you how big the print is compared to a Norton.

I really like doing this type of thing every now and then, and I hope you guys like buying this type of thing as well because people are starting to complain that I should maybe invest in a new pair of pants to replace the garbage bags I use as summerwear.

PAAAAANTS!

P.S:  A few people over at the Facebook fanpage were asking if the unsigned prints would have anything special and I had to dash their dreams against the rocks like so many kittens dashed against…the rocks.  Here’s what I told them:

“The unsigned prints, though not visibly altered like the signed ones, will have absorbed my power by sitting in a tiny room with me for up to ten hours. If you squeeze them, you might just be able to extract the “essence” that I “emit” every now and then and have used against me way too often in a court of law. Hope that’s cool enough if you don’t end up with a signed one.”
