facebook event page for linework

AND just to reiterate, it will all hurt is being carried by diamond comic distributors. for issue two: APRIL PRE-ORDERS DUE APRIL 22, and issue #3 will be in the May previews under alternative comics.  orders have been pretty good so far. thanks to people bugging their local comic shop and thanks to comic retailers for taking a chance on such an outlier, and thanks to   for the really nice beat article on it will all hurt.

 here’s a handy pamphlet Marc Arsenault made to promote studygroup’s April & May books. and here is the cover to issue #3 in case you missed last months post.

iwahno3colorcoverlowres

APRIL 15, 2015. running concurrent with linework the wrenchies pages will be on display all month at tiny’s on MLK not too far from the linework venue the norse hall where i am sharing wall space with one of my best buddies gabriel taylor. there is even a bigger collaborative painting by gabriel and i. here is a older and rawer grainy photo version of it:

weasle

the reception is this wednesday, the 15th of april, 2015. there will be beer and coffee and food available for purchase. as well as some art to look at. i am not selling any more of the wrenchies pages i still have on my person but the beguling has a bunch for sale if you were interested. i have spent a lot of time in this coffee shop working on my comics over the years and is one of the first places i went to when i first moved to town. there is also a sold out electric wizard show that eve at the hawthorne theatre, which is very fitting as i thanked them in the wrenchies for helping me get that book done. fyi i am just a fan of their music and have no relation or attachment to any of the actual guys in the band.

here’s a couple pics taken by the incredible artist steve lieber

I will HAVE SOME WRENCHIES COPIES AND DELUSIONALS ON HAND TO SELL AND DRAW IN AT TINY’S AND LINEWORK. BOTH ARE FREE EVENTS.

also there is now a facebook page for the wrenchies. please go to that and “like” it if you are into that sort of thing.

and don’t forget about earth day on the 22nd. so try not to use gas or buy anything wrapped in plastic or something.

DIY Magic: A Strange and Whimsical Guide to Creativity by Anthony Alvarado

the author of this excellent book Anthony Alvarado will be talking about it along with me and a couple of amazing local artists local artists: Eric Mast (aka E*Rock), and Jennifer Parks at Powell’s City of Books 1005 W Burnside St. between 10th and 11th Ave.Portland,OR503 228 4651

here’s a color and somewhat tweaked version of my illo i did for the book:

be seeing you

Island, Little Nemo, IT WILL ALL HURT, best of 2014 lists, and the Earfarmer 2015

islandpromofarel01lowres

this is a little promo thing  i made for ISLAND, the upcoming image comics anthology.

Island, from Image Comics, a magazine anthology edited by Brandon Graham and featuring a rotating collection of creators inspired by Heavy Metal and Raw  magazine.

coming up this thursday in downtown portland, oregon at FLOATING WORLD COMICS me and the one of the best dudes i know craig thompson will be signing some copies of little nemo: dream a little dream. here is the facebook event page for it. craig’s and my own original pages will be hanging in there too, and jason said he making some nice prints of the art. not trying to brag but this book, at the full size of the original Little Nemo broadsheet pages (16″ x 21″), is really a beautiful sight to behold.  after seeing it in person for the first time i was stunned by how good it looks. so not reduce it specialness for people that buy one (it is kind of pricey) i was asked to not post my entire pages on the internet. but here are some “special features” or whatever for my two pages:

flip

this is a not so great picture of the inked version and then the print ready watercolored colored version on the right.

aflip

and this was a photo i took mid-process. i almost like it better in this half finished state. i need to figure out how to simplify my coloring style or something. observe the fairy on the left of the page. i had to cut her and the little flip i drew on the original so as to keep the proportions consistent with the original broadsheet size with border and trim and bleed and all that.  i measured the art dimensions from the sunday press nemo book and did them at the exact size, but the bristol paper i was working on was bigger and i added them without realizing they wouldn’t fit in the book. here are the scanned and cleaned up versions:

extradudessmall

across both “page”? maybe it is was a good thing they got cut.

 pencilinkcolorpanel05

here is another shot of a partly inked panel and then finished watercolor and cleaned up version. i tried to put as much stuff from the old strip in my pages as i could fit. i think half the artists in the book drew that turkey swallowing the house. 

messupbrush

this is a Raphaël Kolinsky brush if you are interested. i was told that there is a distinction between a Sable and a kolinsky but either way i feel bad little animals had to die for me to make comics.  and then there was another mess-up on my part that isn’t that bad but unfortunately made it into the printed version.http://www.dickblick.com/products/raphael-kolinsky-red-sable-fine-pointed-round/

messup on the dedication at the bottom i drew the brush i make comics with but in the printed version i accidentally had the brush blacked out in photoshop. no big deal as it is so small but it still stings a little. just one of those things.

robottod2014dec

i also have been doing a little more on iT wILL aLL hURT,  wrapping up part 6, the final chapter of IWAH. Poor little Robot Tod is getting all scrambled up this chapter. Studygroup Comics and I are going to try to have that issue three out for the upcoming Linework NW show. after that all three issues collecting all six chapters should be at your local comics shops.

 after giving it a while to sink in i think the comic book/graphic novel i read last year that hit me the hardest was probably Beautiful Darkness by Fabien Vehlmann and Kerascoët.  so many great books came out this year still trying to plow through the stacks. listed below are my favorite (whatever that’s worth) best of 2014 comics LISTS. i am a little biased because i mostly just looked at lists the wrenchies were on, all except one of  the few blogs i look at often, comics and cola, but i like pretty much all the other books mentioned and i feel like these all give a pretty good coverage of most of the stuff i have read or want to read soon:

the onion AV club best comics of 2014

vice magazine top eleven comics of 2014

wired.com best comics of 2014

good ok bad best comics 2014

this is infamous 20 best-comics of 2014

broken frontier best of 2014

Floating World Comics (lcs) sales report for 2014

comics and cola best of 2014

sherwoodandorson

” kill the enchantments with our understanding and satisfaction.”

that is a line my buddy josh o’neil wrote in the best run down of the wrenchies i have read and probably will ever read.

 this year is back to the drawing board for me. i will spend the rest of the year working on:

* POp Gun War: chain letter coming out in new image anthology Island

*last chapter of  iT wILL aLL hURT on studygroup comics

 

and finally here are some (hopefully all) appearances i will be doing this year:

*ECCC-emerald city comic con, Seattle , WA-3/27-3/29

*Linework NW-Portland, OR 4/18 and 4/19

*VanCAF-Vancouver Comic Arts Fest, Vancouver, BC, CANADA 5/23-4/25

*SPX-The Small Press Expo, Bethesda, MD . Sept. 19-20

An exhibit of original artwork from both series will be on display all month, and Farel will attend the opening party to sign books and greet fans.

Sherwood and Orson should never have gone into that cave.

That day, a door was opened from our world into a dark and profane realm…and earth’s destiny was changed forever.

In this demented future, whatever life remains on earth is oppressed by the evil shadowsmen. Only a gang of ruthless and powerful children called the Wrenchies can hope to stand against them. When Hollis, a lonely boy from our world, is magically given access to the future world of the Wrenchies, he finally finds a place he belongs. But it is not an easy world to live in, and Hollis’s quest is bigger than he ever dreamed of.

Farel Dalrymple brings his literary and artistic powers to bear in this sprawling science fiction graphic novel about regret, obsession, and the uncertainty of growing up.

Farel Dalrymple is the creator Pop Gun War (Dark Horse Comics) which was a Xeric Grant recipient and won a gold medal from The Society of Illustrators. Dalrymple drew the critically acclaimed super hero comic book, Omega the Unknown (Marvel comics), for author Jonathan Lethem, and is also creator of the Eisner-nominated It Will All Hurt (Study group comics). He is a co-founder of and regular contributor to the comic book anthology Meathaus and has worked on a range of illustration and cartooning projects. Farel is currently residing in Portland, Oregon but really would rather be living alone in the woods somewhere.

Wrenchies-Cover-Final-300rgb

Praise for The Wrenchies:

  • “Incredible. A deeply personal epic…a book that calls for re-readings.” — Craig Thompson (Blankets, Habibi)
  • “AMAZING. Beautiful drawing and painting, great characters–it’s pretty much everything I could want a graphic novel to be.” –Mike Mignola (Hellboy)
  • “I’ve been a very enthusiastic admirer of Farel Dalrymple from the first moment I was introduced to his wonderful work.  Now here comes his most epic work with THE WRENCHIES!  This book is a stunning and original piece of work.  The characters are richly authentic and their world is simultaneously exciting and horrific, filled with hauntingly beautiful detail.  THE WRENCHIES is a masterpiece that will knock yer socks off!” –Michael Allred (Madman, Silver Surfer, The Atomics, Red Rocket 7)
  • “Tremendously masterful, as to be expected of Farel Dalrymple. A work of art with fevered imagination and lush nightmares that should haunt every reader.”–J H Williams III (Sandman, Batwoman, Promethea)
  • “The years of love dumped into The Wrenchies is apparent on every page, every panel a work of high art. Lush worlds and fascinating characters drenched in originality and childhood nostalgia. The story is heartfelt, wildly imaginative and engrossing as Farel achieves something all too often lost in comics–pure fun. The Wrenchies is a game changer. I couldn’t love anything more.” –Rick Remender (Black Science, Deadly Class)
