JAB’s tidbits

the process of inking yourself to death

hey a new post!

Posted by jeremybastian on July 8, 2008

Well how bout that I finally got around to doing a new one. Soooo here’s what’s been going on, I had the Chicago con like a couple of weeks ago and it went pretty well. I was facing the far wall at the end of artist alley #1 (the big grouping) but I had a lot of people telling me that friends told them to search me out. Which is really cool, thanks to everyone who enjoyed my stuff so much they wanted to share it with others!!

The con was good, didn’t do to much socializing cause I’m me, talked some shop with my new publisher Olympian publishing. I will be having (instead of a sketchbook) two portfolios available with images painstakingly invented to thrill those who love the kinds of things I love. The manticore from an earlier post will be included in these. The first one is entitled -The Patient Snail ink decoration for paper. I think I’ve got a title for the second but I have to mull it over some more. Each portfolio will have 7 images and here are a couple I’ve come up with.

<img src=”the griffon” alt=”null” />

<img src=”the rivals” alt=”null” />

<img src=”the bat knight” alt=”null” />
I will also have some of these available as individual prints. The portfolios are $35 apiece the unique individual prints are $20. Those I have printed on heavy paper and then stain and bake them. I think they look like they’ve been torn right from old books. hee hee

A big thankyou to Mr. Tom Negovan for letting Emily and I stay at his amazing house. Shout out to the General Jack Cosmo crew for a hilarious night of berating someone much more powerful and far richer than us. Thank you to Mr. Dave Petersen for coming with me. A definate thank you goes to Daniel Thayer, his wife, and friends (I know I’m a jerk, I’m just really bad with remembering names so please forgive me, I do remember Rick and of course Tiara and Isaac. But I’m at a loss for everyone else… um…heh…*) for a equally hilarious night of wonderfully gross stories. Finally, the biggest thank you to my sweety Emily for putting up with facing a wall and for putting up with me. I can’t wait to see what she thinks of San Diego.

So I’m getting ready for Toronto! That’s in a couple of days. I hope to see anyone there.

  2. Jeremy: I’m the white-haired guy who said you could be an undiscovered 19th-century master at Comicon Sunday. I had no time to linger, but now that I’ve explored your site I’m impressed all over again

    Please get the “for sale” link on your website up and running!

    Hey Jeremy, I bought the print of the image above, the bat with the crescent moon-sword, does it have a name?
    Your work is amazing, looking forward to see and buy more of your artwork and hope to see you, again next year @ comic con.
