Broken Pencil, Sketchbooks, #TBT, Art done, & Art for sale!

I’ve been pretty active on the new Spilt Ink blog, and generally trying to be regular about updating. The old home site is overdue for a catch-up though!

hurtFirst I want to remind everyone, I have a lot of art up for sale, and take requests as well. 

Generally always interested in selling it but right now it would be especially helpful, so check it out and if you order something, I’ll throw in a copy of my comic Revolver vol 3 with a sketch and thank you! In most instances shipping is included in the price, for sure in the US, EU and Canada.

Also, if you don’t have ALL my books already, why not?! You can order them here from Spilt Ink!

Speaking of my books…

BPSummerIndieScienceThe Summer issue
of Broken Pencil
includes two pieces
related to Dream Life.

Posted on spilt ink originally: There’s a listicle by Alison Lang called “How to Crowdfund a Graphic Novel (without Losing Your Mind and Alienating People)” [pg 22], that came out of a nice long chat I had with Alison the week of TCAF 2014 about fundraising for Dracula and Dream life.

I was expecting that, but was pleased to find a review of Dream Life in my comp copy as well!

Joel W. Vaughan gave me some high praise with the understandable caveat that being a ‘book one’, it really needs it’s mate to conclude and deliver on any promise. Something I fully intend to do.

“This latest work by the legendary Montreal-based artist Salgood Sam has been called “neo-realist,” but it might be more accurately referred to as “honest.” It follows the seemingly unrelated lives of five young adults in contemporary Canada, detailing everything from call-centres to drug-smugglers. It’s a stellar graphic novel…”

#TBT

As a way to partake in Throwback Thursdays and promote my fathers work, i’ve started posting weekly new photos of his. Right now it’s a series of shots from the  The Toronto Pop Festival! The first two posts feature shots of  Chuck Berry, Sly & the Family Stone, Tiny Tim, Ronny Hawkins, and a 17-year-old Jeanne Beker!

The wing nut’s wing nuts are on the wing. But they can’t outrun Rachel Maddow!

So I just want to say, when we depicted the end times in Therefore Repent, i didn’t mean to say i belive in it! Nooooo, not even a little. We were taking the piss. But these crazy guys!! Fuck!!! Holy crap, you can’t write it this bad. Check out the patch. Man.

But they could not outrun Rachel Maddow. Nice. If there were a god that would mean he watches her.

Good old Michigan. Don’t you guys play in our rain dear games. Not unless you got some antlers.

Revolution on the Planet of the Apes on Hype Space.

This is old, but i just found it. This is Ty Templeton, artist writer and editor extraordinaire, and our boss for Revolution on the Planet of the Apes.

He appeared on Space to hype the books when they came out, and they used a lot of my art from #1 for this. The publisher has been having second thoughts about doing a collection, if your someone who would like to see the Revolution on the Planet of the Apes books collected, like i would, write Mr. Comics and tell them about it for me please?

Got a musical crush


Still in Toronto for another day, but soon I’ll be back at work. In the mean time though….


RonleyTeperAttheTranzacClubInToronto

After the con, i was able to finally catch Ronley Teper & co preforming @the Tranzac in Toronto Live. This is a band/performer i’ve been following for a little while now, found her via myspace, my cousin plays with her sometimes. you can check her out here.

http://www.myspace.com/ronleyteper

Also lots of links on youtube with the vid, check them ALL out. :)

The great thing was that i wanted to see this show but forgot the day of about it, lost in Kensington market reminiscing w old friends. Made some new ones too. Then me and john walked up to Bloor on Brunswick to get some sushi, and lo there we were passing the Tranzac! Ronley was out side and we said hello, got the stage time and grabbed a great din before the show. Nice night.

So, want a bit more?

a film about the roerich garden project in montreal

Found this on you tube about a project by a local artist i know. Emily Rose Michaud & company built it in the winter. Miss Janet made this excellent 6 min doc about the day Emily and a team of volunteers set it up together over the course of one very cold day. The Garden lived on, you can keep up with their progress here. It’s pretty damn cool.

RIP George Carlin – the PG 13 Obit dept

Shit, Piss, Fuck, Cunt, Cocksucker, Motherfucker, Tits.


I loved that man, damn.


quote: theglobeandmail
Comedian George Carlin, a counter-culture hero famed for his routines about drugs, dirty words and the demise of humanity, died of heart failure at a Los Angeles-area hospital on Sunday. He was 71.

Remember my dad or someone going on about how cool this dude was, first time i became aware of him when i was a toddler. I loved listening to him and Cheech and Chong, trying to inmate them, though it was a long time till i was allowed to hear the most infamous of his routines.

Always thought he was insanely funny even before i had a clue about how ‘blue’ he was.

well done you cranky old dude.

Laughs are cathardic, and i had other reasons to need cheering, a good Carlin Jag can be had surfin’ youtube.


Trailer for Therefore Repent! a post-rapture graphic novel

You can download the original file here. Quality : 45.0 MB WMV file.

For more of Michelle and her music, check out this site, this one, and this one.

The sounds of Strings and chanting recorded on the way to the Ms Guided Zine Launch

Opportunistic recording of Strings and chants in the Montreal Metro. A busker called to me from cathedral like chambers in the Jean Talon Metro station in Montreal, on my way to a live show. Some exuberant young people coming down the escalator broke into the moment with a team chant, very much like i recorded years ago in the NY city time square subway station…

Problem with the player? grab the mp3 here. Also you can find it here on my Free sound page

Heard a new voice friday night….

….and i have video.

This was at a zine launch, Cass was helping out set it up and i tagged allong. There were a few good local bands/acts, and one god awful one from out of town. But this is one song by someone who’s voice was just amazing, reaches out and grabs you.

I have to check in with the organizer, for now only know her first name is Meghan Riley, she has some opera training and she’s also very charming in person. We [Cass and I] were both smitten. I’ll post some more from this show shortly, want to get the info sorted first….

Therefore Repent & the NYCC

Hey all, some nice stuff for the clip pile here; stumbled across this a bit late, Comic News Insider featured the book on their weekly top three list when it came out in January. This is a clip from Episode 125 – Tue, 29 January 2008!

I’m Going to be at the upcoming New York Comic Con – April 18-20, 2008!

I’ll be joining my pod cast collaborators Charlito and Mr. Phill at the ISR table, and doing an hour or so of sketches and signings at the Image table too.

Also i’ve confirmed with Vito, I’m booked to do a singing for Therefore Repent! on the 21st the Monday after the con with my co-creator on Sea of Red, Rick Remender (Fear Agent) and Tony Moore (Walking Dead) @ Jim Hanley’s Universe downtown store in New York City [map]! If your in town i hope you can make it out to the store.

Also really look forward to meeting the guys, Tony did some awesome work on my covers for Sea of Red, I’ve worked with both of them but i haven’t met either of them in the flesh so it’s going to be cool to actually encounter the real people! Hope it goes well :)

Time TBA

and last…

And we got a nice short blurb in the March 2008 issue of Rue Mourge!
