Above, the cover for Randy Bradley, a novella by Jake Bohstedt Morrill from NYC small press Solid Objects, illustrated by Michael Kupperman. The book itself is described as "thrillingly crazed" and "cheerfully demented," which sounds like it's in Michael's wheelhouse. This is his second job for the publisher; we reported on the first one here.
• A Grotesque "family portrait" and Mr. O'Blique postcards that Sergio Ponchione will be giving away to lucky attendees (I think? the autotranslation's a little iffy) at an upcoming festival in Italy
• Speaking of The New Yorker, Paul Karasik got a cartoon in there! Congrats Paul! (via Facebook)
• Steven Weissman and Jordan Crane are putting together an elementary school haunted house for some LUCKY KIDS and here's Steven's flyer for it with Jordan's logo for the school (from Steven via email); also from Steven, his latest "I, Anonymous" spot and Stincker sketchin'
• A fun Dave Cooper gig poster for his friend's band (via Facebook)
• Trubble Club is always fun even if we can't tell who drew what
If you were a fan of Dash Shaw's comics adaptations of Blind Date TV episodes in Mome (and who wasn't?) you'll be happy to know that the series lives on beyond the anthology's demise, with the latest installment in video format. Dash explains, "this time I took an episode and paused it every 5 seconds and drew the frame. Then I put the drawings into a timed slideshow with the original audio over it." Watcb above or at Dash's The Ruined Cast website.
• Cartoon Utopia drawings by Ron Regé Jr. (still raising cash to aid in the completion of the book)
Tim Lane's 5-page illustrated feature for the Riverfront Times on St. Louis's "Hopeville" homeless camp (here in Seattle our homeless camp is called "Nickelsville" after our former mayor) is now up on his blog to read. Above, the RFT cover (designed by art director Tom Carlson), which was featured as a "Cover of the Day" by the Society of Publication Designers, with a scan from Tim's sketchbook; below, the finished page based on that sketch.
