Paul Hornschemeier presents Bygone
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Paul Hornschemeier 12 Aug 2013 12:37 PM

Bygone 1

Paul Hornschemeier knows we're all eagerly awaiting new material from him, and while he's been working away at Forlorn Funnies he's accumulated a bunch of odds and ends that don't fit in other publications, so he's created a new outlet for them: Bygone, a new self-published series slated to come out 3 times a year.

"What's inside? Some of the contents will be from upcoming projects, projects that fell through the cracks, discussions of various processes, and interviews with nonexistent people. There will be scripts, short stories, gags, enlarged arms, and links to secret things you otherwise won't get to see. Probably there's a fart joke in there somewhere. Maybe a philosopher or two."

Paul's no stranger to self-publishing, as those who've read his early series Sequential will know. (I mostly bring that up to embarrass Paul.) Read more of Paul's announcement here; pre-order issue 1 or subscribe here

Gene Deitch and Justin Hall signed their copies of Nudnik Revealed and No Straight Lines respectively. Deitch reminded Hall that a permanent pen works best for signing (in comparison, Hall is the baby in the situation)

Bubbleheads by Paul Hornschemeier

In conjunction with the exhibit Modern Cartoonist: The Art of Daniel Clowes, the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago is hosting the all-day event Saturday Strip on Saturday, July 27th, showcasing all that is amazing in the world of independent comics, cartoons, and animation in their town! 

Paul Hornschemeier will discuss the Chicago comics scene, and Lilli Carré will give tips on how to make your own mini-comics and animated films, alongside many other awesomely talented artists during panels and workshops.

You can also buy rare books and original artwork at a pop-up comic fair co-presented by the MCA Store and Chicago’s renowned Quimby’s Bookstore; enjoy screenings of animated short films programmed by the Eyeworks Festival of Experimental Animation; and take part in a large-scale, collaborative comic jam with local comic collective Trubble Club. 

Phew! And all this awesome comics madness is FREE with museum admission, and you know you were gonna go see that Daniel Clowes exhibit for the second time anyway.

The Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago is located at 220 E Chicago Avenue, just one block east of Michigan Avenue, in the heart of the Magnificent Mile in downtown Chicago. 

The Three Paradoxes on comiXology

Three Paradoxes
Happy to bring you some great comics reading for your long weekend, Fantagraphics and comiXology present Paul Hornschemeier's The Three Paradoxes to download. The story begins with a story inside the story: the cartoon character Paul Hornschemeier is trying to finish a story called "Paul and the Magic Pencil." An intricate, complex autobiographical comic blending multiple threads of reality and fantasy, each drawn in a different style, coming together as one story questioning change, progress, and worth in the author's life.
 
For $12.99 this carefully woven tale can be yours to unravel again and again and again at comiXology.
 
Three Paradoxes
"Stunning... To breathe even a lungful of fresh air into the autobiographical comics genre is a challenge, but Hornschemeier succeeds. Although the mysterious pull of a place and its stories is never fully explained, the book is made stronger and more memorable by his elliptical approach." - The Guardian
 
"Hornschemeier wields that rare gift of layered subtlety. Be it an almost imperceptible change in facial expressions or the slow death of a flower, he says significant, moving things in a few panels that would take pages to convey in a novel." – School Library Journal - See more at: http://www.fantagraphics.com/browse-shop/203-artists/403-paul-hornschemeier/fantagraphics/the-three-paradoxes-with-free-signed-bookplate.html#sthash.7r0selIo.dpuf

Artists Authors Thinkers Directors - Paul Hornschemeier

We're in the midst of assembling our Fall 2013-Winter 2014 season, and while there's still lots of stuff we're keeping under our collective hat for now (we've barely just revealed our Spring-Summer 2013 season, for pete's sake), some other stuff has been leaking out here and there... like this forthcoming book from Paul Hornschemeier, Artists Authors Thinkers Directors, collecting his sketchbook portraits from his Daily Forlorn blog. Pictures of smart people for smart people! Did excitement for this book cause yesterday's catastrophic Tumblr outage? We may never know.

Forlorn Funnies Vol. 1 by Paul Hornschemeier

Hot pixels! Paul Hornschemeier just revealed the cover art for Forlorn Funnies Vol. 1, the first volume of his new one-man anthology series which we have the pleasure of bringing to you in September of next year. (You may remember it was originally announced for Fall 2010, but then Paul got busy with little things like getting married, moving, becoming a dad, doing artwork and animation for an IFC show amongst other projects... stuff like that.) For several months now Paul has been revealing work-in-progress glimpses (along with sketchbook artwork) on his Tumblr blog, so head over there for a taste of things to come.
