Show and Tell, Pt. 6
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under miscellany 18 Mar 2008 9:48 AM
More crap that'll fit on the scanner... 
 
A pencil rough from a panel of Charles Burns' Black Hole, including a mysterious clue from Charles ("Who's this guy?"):
 
 
This illustration is the cover art to Joe Coleman's Man of Sorrows book from Gates of Heck. This is a great book, BTW, which basically is an explication of one of Coleman's most famous paintings, with die cut details from the painting tipped into each page with extensive commentary on each by Coleman. 

 
A spot illustration by Archer Prewitt. I have no idea what this was for, but it's pretty: 
 
 
Super cool Chris Ware poster art for a Sea & Cake show (featuring the aforementioned Archer Prewitt):
 
  
 
A lovely little Jim Woodring "Pupshaw" painting. This one's going in my soon-to-arrive baby girl's room:

Steven Weissman - The Stranger

Stay tuned for the newest "Chocolate Cheeks" strip from Steven "Ribs" Weissman... meanwhile, here's his cover illustration for this week's issue of The Stranger. (You can see his illustration for the "I, Anonymous" feature in the paper every week.)

UPDATE: Jacob Covey informs me that this illustration (in a different color scheme) is available for purchase as a silkscreen print right here.

Now in stock: Ganges #2 by Kevin Huizenga

Ganges #2 by Kevin Huizenga

Ganges #2
By Kevin Huizenga

Everyman Glenn Ganges ruminates on the simple times of the dot-com era when the reality of business was propped up by the unreality of addictive technology and hope. Kevin Huizenga cleverly parallels that unreality with the unreality of addictive networked first-person shooter video games, and the attempts of people around him to genuinely connect with each other. Huizenga’s elegant neo-clear-line style brings a crispness and humor to these low-key slice-of-life stories, and the gray-blue duotone he has picked gives the art a new depth and complexity.

Part of the Ignatz Series
