These previews are exclusive to registered Fantagraphics.com users, so sign up and/or sign in to view.

(As a reminder, 20/20 Club members receive these previews two weeks before we post them on the website, just one of many great reasons to join up...)

Gallery Ghost - Richard Sala

Richard Sala provides illustrations for Gallery Ghost, which looks like a nifty edumacational book for the grade-school set. Via Sporadic Sequential, who get kudos for their blog post title.

New book illustrated by Richard Sala
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Richard Sala 30 Nov 2007 12:21 PM
A Loud Humming Sound Came From Above

A Loud Humming Sound Came From Above is a new book with cover and interior illustrations by our own, beloved Richard Sala and collecting twelve of Johnny Strike's genre-bending stories that weave together elements of vintage crime or sci-fi pulps in work that recalls variously the writings of Philip K. Dick, Edgar Allan Poe, William Burroughs and Raymond Chandler. Settings include a hellish prison workshop, a mercenary methadone clinic, and a hotel where the suicidal find a terrible reason to live; characters include the unlucky, the delusional, the sociopathic, and those doomed to see reality with a crippling clarity.

Miscellaneous Importance.

I have absolutely no use for the perfect coin purse. But Ray Fenwick makes me want things I don't need.

Ray recently guest blogged on one of my favorite sites, Book By Its Cover. There he has summarized his love of Mat Brinkman as such: "I'm always searching for art that gives me both something I understand and something I don't."

I proudly own this enormous etching by Lizz Hickey of an unsettling, beautiful and overwhelming slice of extraterrestrial landscape. It's one of the most dense worlds I could imagine creating, brimming with details that all seem to insinuate life-going-on. Unfortunately that image is not on her Flickr page. BUT, now she's cranking out nearly 100 different prints that seem to be microcosms within that crazy world. Close-ups of vague organic forms doing uncertain things. I like it. As an acquaintance of mine might say, I understand it and I don't understand it.

Original cover art for Delphine #3 by Richard Sala


One of the great privileges of working at Fantagraphics is the opportunity to see original artwork for upcoming releases. Case in point: this gorgeous painted cover by Richard Sala for Delphine #3 (release date TBD), which my crappy cameraphone did absolutely no favors to (and turned purple for some reason).
