If you enjoyed Paul Hornschemeier's "Life with Mr. Dangerous" serial in the pages of Mome, the collected edition is coming this spring from Villard and Paul is now offering Limited and Ultra Limited collectible editions (the latter includes a page of original art and a hand-sculpted character figurine — what!). Hit Paul's blog for all the details.
It was exactly 2 years ago today that I first reported on some mysterious Jim Woodring artwork that appeared to be for a Frank pinball machine. Today our very own pinball aficionado Larry Reid sent me a link which sheds light on that unexplained image! Pinball collector and Woodring fan Eli Curtz commissioned the artwork from Jim, and then commissioned Classic Playfield Reproductions to produce a custom backglass (the vertical backlit display above/behind the playfield) for a homebrew Frank machine that Eli is constructing. This is just about the coolest thing I've ever seen.
The backglass was produced in a small edition and Eli will have a few extras to sell off — information about that and the project as a whole can be found at Eli's website, with additional images, including the original artwork, here. More detailed images and additional information can be found at the Classic Playfield Reproductions website.
...an announcement: "Tomorrow night, I'll be at Second City's de Maat Theater for a special, farewell incarnation of The Late Live Show with hosts Joe Kwaczala and C.J. Toledano. [...] I'll be reading a piece thus far entitled 'Advice Column Responses to My Inner Monologues at Various Ages.' I can only guarantee that this will include footy pajamas, urine, fake urine, lion tamers, ironic t-shirts, horrible first dates, attempted thievery, and batman coloring books. I can promise nothing more"...
Hit all those links for more information, embiggenable images, and Paul's always-witty commentary.
Ray Fenwick announceth:
"Next Tuesday Tiny Showcase will release a special edition of my new book Mascots. The first 100 will be signed, but every copy ordered through Tiny will come with a print of the above image. That one was made after the book was off to press so it's not duplicated inside."
He also debuts the new second trailer for the book, "A dramatization of the scene 'Fat Air'":
