Demented Detroit: Contemporary Comics and Cartoons from the Motor City

I’m in a show opening this Friday at Henry Ford Community College’s Sisson Gallery. It’s curated by Sean Bieri (who is no stranger to this blog) and features a bunch of extremely talented local folks (some of whom also have done sketches I already have or will eventually post here, too).

More info: Featuring comics and illustrations created by eleven area artists, “Demented Detroit” is an eclectic sampler of cartoon artwork, including humor, horror, whimsy, adventure, social commentary and more. With art by James Anderson, Suzanne Baumann, Sean Bieri, Matt Feazell, Victor Green, Kelly Guillory, Jane Irwin, Kelly Larson, Crystal Mielcarek, Vicki Shepherd and Ted Woods. The show runs thru March 20.

My upcoming trip to SPACE

SP13FrontIf you’re in the Columbus, Ohio area this April, come see me at the Small Press & Alternative Comics Expo, aka SPACE. I will have a table with new Ball Point minicomics to share, and this year I will also be accepting a prize for As Eavesdropped #3 ! Most of the sketches I’m currently posting to this blog were drawn at SPACE in 2001 — the fact that I’m still coming back to this show 12 years later should tell you how much I like it.

In addition, I will have a few pieces up in a group show at Wild Goose Creative (also in Columbus) throughout the month of April. It’s called Panels in Pink, and an artists’ reception is scheduled on April 18, 2013, 7-10 PM (I probably won’t be around for the reception, but if you’re nearby, check it out).

HOT/COLD – Exhibit at Headspace Gallery

Headspace Gallery is shining the spotlight on some of Detroit’s best female artists for its next exhibit! HOT/COLD is a dual themed exhibit featuring some steamy pin-ups and some cool winter scenes.

Opening reception – January 21, 2012 7pm – 10pm.
13210 Michigan Avenue, Dearborn, MI 48126

Here’s my piece for the show. We were given a choice of themes, pinup girls or winter. Mix that in with the fact that I’d just gotten around to reading The Three Musketeers and you get historically inaccurate pinup-style Milady de Winter. It was a lot of fun to do. The opening sounds like it’s gonna be fun, too; so if you’re in the area, come by this Saturday!
