In between regular postings here is a preview of the next comic. The working title for this latest jaunt is One night with other friends.”  Just another night in the city with Niall and Jamal, well maybe.

So up above is a preview of what’s coming next week (work in progress) with me hoping not to flub up this comic like the last one.  I really overwork the idea of the number of the comic publish, instead trying tell the story.  In which stalled the development of it. Yeah it’s great to have 50 comics done, but getting to the next one, and the one after, telling more stories.  Well now that’s the awfully big adventure I should be striving to continue 🙂

 Rembrandt In American at the North Carolina Museum of Art October 30, 2011–January 22, 2012

Rembrandt in America is the largest collection of Rembrandt paintings ever presented in an American exhibition and the first major exhibition to explore in depth the collecting history of Rembrandt paintings in America.” 



This was my 3rd opportunity seeing the works of Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn but never before like the one present at the museum.  47 pieces of art in is this exhibition, please take the opportunity to check this out.  Plus little what I know, “what is a Rembrandt, and what is not.” No worries there is still time with the extend hours.  Unfortunately I didn’t see from the times listed a 24 hour viewing session.  This happen some time ago with their Auguste Rodin exhibition (freaking epic!!!) in which we saw this one in the wee hours in the morning, planned it that way, then followed up with some breakfast… Good times all-around.


Plus check out some other exhibitions:

Reflections: Portraits by Beverly McIver, local Durham artist





Self, Observed Self portraits curated by students






If you still haven’t seen the West Building expansion (really, how could you not) take some time to get “lost” over in the gallery’s collection

 Image Comics 2012 marks their 20th year of publication

Image Comics is a United States comic book publisher. It was founded in 1992 by high-profile illustrators as a venue where creators could publish their material without giving up the copyrights to the characters they created, as creator-owned properties. It was immediately successful, and remains one of the largest comic book publishers in North America. Its output was originally dominated by work from the studios of the Image partners, but later included work by numerous independent creators. Its best-known series include Spawn, Savage Dragon, Witchblade, The Darkness, Invincible, and The Walking Dead.

Jumping Jehoshaphat… I can’t believe it’s already 20 years of this publishing company.  From my perspective the creation of Image comics did tremendous benefit for creators. Along the way yes the company had some failings, but through and through they continue on learning from their mistakes. Striving to put out amazing stories by some very talented people who get full creative control, and benefits from it.  Oh the did my head explode during the summer of 1992, I purchase pretty much all the founding partners 1st issues plus the additional copy as burgeoning collector (thanks goodness I worked that out my system).  It was very exciting time who knew they were going last even a year? Now looking at the line from what where it use to be, I very happy how things turn out.

Dang it I am jealous, but consider this a great opportunity to attend a “boutique” convention focusing on one peculiar subject or theme. Oh I am so happy for you who can make it… but still so jealous… 🙂


Thank you for reading, back to making comics.
