Hey there sports fans, Al here with the latest:
SO there is this thing called a new year and we are only into for the fourth day in a row (as write this) and now the question is what kind things are lining up for Black Box Visual Art and Black Box Comix?
Well to answer that question we have to look both comic book shows and art shows.
As the list evolves it will look like that I have at least two comic book shows coming up.
The first will be in March on the 1st. It is a group show that I am going to be a part of called "Sasquatch"a Bigfoot themed group show. (link). I think "Gentle Giant" will do well in this show.
The second show will in April. The 18th and 19th for the Linework N.W. (link)
The third is the Crypticon 2015 the following month. (link)
NOTE: Now there is a lot of questions of why I would go back to a show that I had such a bad time dealing with last year after "the Human Wall of Shame" and all that (See last years comments here).
After months of never hearing anything from the organizers of this show they finally got back in touch with me to make things right
Then there are the art shows that will be coming up in September at N.W.I.P.A.(link). and then later in the year again is BIG 500 (at least that is what I have heard there were going to call this year). (link)
SO I have to plan like a mother to get these things made and printed and all that goes along with that work.
BUT I AM ALSO keeping an eye on what I am doing and how far I can stretch myself and still keep turning out the best work that I can.
NOW the only issue that I have with the Linework N.W. Show is that I have to wait to find out if my books, website, product fits their criteria for a juried show.
This is the only issue that I have and if they accept you then you better have the money readily available for the table via paypal for the one day that you'll be part of the show.
But being a interdependent makes it hard unless you are so flushed with cash you don't have to worry about that. But with the amount of money that BBVA has earned from the BIG 500 from last year I should be able not to work about that stuff. I should also mention that the last day of the BIG 500 is next Sunday. So if you had your mind set on a piece of work go get it!
SO WHAT KIND OF WORK AM I TALKING ABOUT....
That means Richard Parker has moved back into the Limelight for his Adventure book, "The Watery Adventure of Richard Parker".
I am excited for the work to be edited by Paula Akin who has been so kind to help me not to trip over myself while writing these crazy ass stories of Underwater Adventure (watch out Sub Mariner and Aquaman).
So with that this comic illustration book will for all intense purposes the templet for the “Dreams of Elysium”. I have been split on several different fronts that have really effected my turn out of the work but I will not be deterred from making my dream a reality.
That also means the Corpse Cop will get printed as well. Even though posting
comic books through a Ka-blam's associated on-line comic store Indyplanet.com http://www.indyplanet.com/front/ has been a selling hell for me printing still goes on and one comic “Arctic Wolf” has been in a holding pattern for nearly a year and “Inhuman Torch” is just around the corner once Paula (again I can't thank her enough for helping me with these).
Aside from that there is also the other websites for the selling giclees and t-shirts.
