Flash Back Friday: Miami Book Fair 2009

I have been in the ongoing disorganization of organizing my studio. Realtors took over the building where I, and many others, used to work and forced us out (because every inch of real estate in Brooklyn is made of silver and gold these days). Thus, a small part of our apt had to be adapted to hide my mess (my work space). We built a floor to ceiling see though bookshelf, and I now work behind a semi see through wall of books. We have a LOT of books.

In going through the books and note pads that need to be kept or tossed in the garbage, I found a note pad recounting the Miami Book Fair of 2009. The Fahrenheit 451 adaption had just come out and I was sent to the show to do talks and mingle. In fact, on the shuttle bus from the hotel to the event I shared a ride with Laurie Sandell, Sid Jacobson and the outrageous Carol Tyler. As you can imagine, it was a  shuttle bus ride I will never forget.

Further reading of my notebook reminded me of something I totally forgot. A passage about encountering a large group of well dressed (way over dressed) event goers in the Hyatt Lobby. Looking beyond them, I spotted the sign for the event they were crowding into; “Money Making Opportunities by Donald Trump.” That’s what I wrote down in my note pad at least. A quick google search about who was at the 2009 Miami Book Fair seems to confirm my memory.

The Fahrenheit Adaption came out some eight years ago, warning people about obsessing over reality shows projected onto wall sized televisions, among other things. Yet here I am still struggling away as an artist who has yet to strike gold. I should have paid for the “Money Making Opportunities” seminar!

Rainy Friday in September

As the ten or twelve of you who read this know, I’m working on Brooklyn Blood with Paul Levitz for Dark Horse Presents. I’m just about done with the last chapters (Chapter 8 in stores now!) and am drawing a few other possible projects. Thus, the piece of art below. Where and when this appears in print is as of yet not set in any type of schedule. This is how I draw roughs, on a Cintiq (in photoshop) . It’s kind of like drawing roughs with a marker. Ultimately I will print this out in non-photo blue, ink it in the real world and then scan it back into the computer to be colored. Every time I say or type that, I realize it’s a bit insane. Yes, I doodled some color on there. Total waste of time at this stage.
