I was in Washington DC this Memorial Day Weekend for the NCS 69th Annual Reuben Awards. I haven’t been in a couple of years, so it was nice to catch up with a ton of cartoonist friends, many of whom have are working on exciting new projects.
One such project I wanted to give a shout-out to is Bill Holbrook’s interactive Virtu/Noir app, based on his popular comic strip character Dethany from On The Fast Track. Dethany the Corporate Goth takes on the seedy underside of the online environment VirtuNoir in this fun tribute to the world of Dashiell Hammett and Sam Spade. It’s fantastic, and fun, and exactly the kind of thing that has kept Bill relevant in comics for decades.
Hey, GIL fans!
For the first time ever I’m putting an original GIL comic up for auction on eBay! Bidding starts at .99 cents! http://www.ebay.com/itm/Original-GIL-Comic-Strip-Art-/171759088157?
This Sunday GIL ran in The Providence Journal on June 22, 2014. This is the only one I drew in this experimental format. It didn’t run in the paper this way, but I think the title panel makes it nice for framing. It’s truly one of a kind. I hope it finds a happy home!
My good buddy Greg Cravens has made a trip to Grumbel’s Department Store the subject of this week’s story in The Buckets! Thanks for the shout out Greg! The story continues, so go check it out starting at http://www.gocomics.com/thebuckets/2015/03/16
