The curtains are opening, rising with the sun. My consciousness widens to take in this drama. It has been well-rehersed and finely-tuned with age. Watch it with me.

My gallery show news! This week!
MON, 9/29/03, 12:31 a.m.

Here is an update on my new gallery show that will be opening this week! I have over 300 original art pieces in the show. It is a one man show and has the ENTIRE main gallery of the university that I graduated from. My biggest show ever.

Included are: The original art from the entire issues of Daredevil #51-53. 33 original art pages from the Daredevil Wakeup story I did with Brian Michael Bendis. Hundreds of Kabuki pages from Metamorphosis, Skin Deep and Dreams (including the entire Ghost play art, and entire Kabuki One Half art).

Four figure sculptures at real life scale. Large full figure paintings at real life scale and larger. Many, many personal figure drawings, sketches, studies and doodles. A brand new never before published black and white autobiographical 8 page story called "Self Portrait".

The original cover art to selected published covers of Kabuki, Daredevil, Alias and more. The Tori Amos painting I did for her upcoming calendar.

Handmade artbooks including “My Invisible Friend” (as seen in pages of Kabuki), Father Hymn Book, Mother Her Book. Child hood robot sculpture and first childhood oil painting and more.

Also included are many books and books will be available for sale to the public at the night of the opening reception.

Also free posters and post cards with the show art are free to public at the night of opening reception.

Reception will have free food and drinks. Including SUSHI! Yum. I hope I have time to eat some.

Previous update below will have other info dates, times and lecture night info:

I have a new gallery exhibit of my artwork in October. It will be held in the art gallery of the University that I graduated from and will extensively feature original pages from Kabuki, Daredevil, Echo, and many non-comic related works and paintings.

The opening night reception of the gallery will be Thursday October 2 from 5-8 pm. It will be held at the main gallery of the Art Building at Northern Kentucky University. Right across the river from Cincinnati Ohio.

It is a one man show and my work will be up thoughout October but I hope people can make it on the opening night, as there will also be a signing held, a free poster for the gallery show, and books available. On Friday October 22 I will be having a lecture/discussion at the University. Last year NKU had Neil Gaiman do this at the University, and If you attended that you know how fun and interactive this can be.

The last two years the NKU Literature dept hosted something like this. I did it the first year, and Neil Gaiman did it the second year. This October the art dept is sponsoring my show and working hand in hand with other departments of the University including the Literature dept, and book stores in the area. Both events are free to the public, and everyone is welcomed to attend!

Who are you and what do you do?

Hi friends, I saw this on the Bendis board where everyone was introducing themselves. I thought it might be fun to learn about what backgrounds people are coming from here.

Change of pace on this thread. I don't know most of you except by your posting alias, so it would be cool to at least know your first names and a bit about you. Here's my suggestion:

Write a brief introduction for yourself, including:

* Your name (first name only, if that's all you'd like to disclose)
* What you do for a living (you don't have to name your employer if you don't want)
* Any hobbies other than comics (we all know you like comics or else you wouldn't be posting here)
* Married, single?
* Anything else cool that you'd like to share about yourself
Sound cool?

Hi Alice,
You are welcome to bring your art right into the gallery. I'm looking forward to it and I'm sure that the other people there would be happy to see it too.

You are welcome to take photos in the gallery. Feel free to photograph any of the art in the show.

Hopefully you will recognize me from photos you've seen. I may look a bit different from the photos as i've had a few months in between signing appearances and just working at home, so about a while ago I shaved my head and have been wearing a goatee as my latest disquise (this way I work and don't think about hair and shave less often get more work done). (I don't show up like this at cons because I look too mean with a shaved head and goatee. My hair is currently a but a bit shorter than most photos :)

I'm sure the gallery director and other artists there will love your work!


Of course, this is what I want to see the most, David! I am bringing my poor fabric imitation of this art to show you after the opening bash, if you have a chance to look at it. I promise I will keep it out in the car, and will only bring it in if you can grant me the audience.

Hundreds of Kabuki pages from Metamorphosis,

Whoa! You sculpt, too! Why should that surprise me? With as much as you put into your figure studies, it would make perfect sense. That was one of my favorite things in college, although I only got a taste of it in design studio.

I am beginning to hyperventilate.

You sound like you never throw anything away. Me neither

My husband calls me a packrat. I say it's my works in progress, and things to make more things.

Excellent. I will have to rob the piggy bank, but who cares?

Absolutely too cool! This is going to be some event...If I don't get there, I will just have to shoot myself. Just kidding. Will you allow us paeons to take a few pictures? That is the most asked question I've heard since I decided to go. Inquiring minds want to know.

Best to you, David!

How is Wash U these days? I spent a lot of time there. I sort of went there unoficially. While I was enrolled at another school, Andy Lee and my girlfriend at the time were enrolled at Wash U and I spent about a week out of every month living at Wash U and even going to many classes there. It was a lot of fun. Then I would drive back to my other school some morning when I needed to show up for tests and turn things in.
