FREE COMICS FRIDAY: The Not Comix #3 by Evan Spears

It's October 2014 and I'm posting something proper and readable and something that will take more than a simple instagram post for Free Comics Friday. Today is exciting because it will be the trend of posting proper sequential art again and I'm getting artists besides myself involved. It is appropriate that Evan Spears will be the first to lend his work to these monthly posts. His work can normally be found at conventions Long Beach Comic Con, Comikaze, at A Shop Called Quest, and on his online store.

A big Thank You to Evan for allowing me to distribute the work and now, Enjoy The Not Comix #3 by Evan Spears:

Riverside ART MAKE: A.R.T. Friends


If you've been following along on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter recently, you've seen or heard something of the All Real True (A.R.T.) Friends. They're a friendly group of creative individuals that are visiting from out of town. They chose Riverside to reside in because of the different flourishing creative communities found there and events like the Riverside Art Museum's Art Make:





Art Make is an initiative that distributes temporary and collaborative public art installations throughout four neighborhoods within Riverside, CA. This seemed like a great opportunity to invite the ART Friends: Pablo, Magdalena, and Vincent.

They loved the idea and they wanted to participate so they brought their cell phones. As statues, they can do little more than be looked at. However, they thought they would use their mobile devices to interact with people in Riverside and anyone else with access to a cell phone or telephone.

All three ART Friends are taking calls for a very limited time. Call and talk to the ART Friends:

Vincent
(951) 256-5493
-
Magdalena
(951) 268-3917
-
Pablo
(951) 268-3918

Read more about the ART Friends and related work now on KCET's ArtBound.

I did not bring the ART Friends here alone. Lots of people worked (and are working) together with them including but not limited to Riverside Art Museum staff, volunteers, community service members and staff, city officials, family, friends and even other ART Friends. I truly appreciate all the help. Below are just some of those people. Thank you, everyone, for chipping in on something fun:

FREE COMICS FRIDAY: Unfolding Comics


 

Hello, everyone. I've been hard at work on several projects so this month's comic is another oldie but has never seen the digital light. I've also been uploading on Tumblr lately as for my intents and purposes it seems to serve better. Please follow the link below to this month's installment:

FREE COMICS FRIDAY: People @ LA Art Show


People @ LA Art Show is a short piece about reaching out and sharing art. It's a zine/comic that I made specifically to give away. 50 copies were produced and all were left at the 2014 LA Art Show. There are only a few images to document it including one at the Van Gogh Museum inside the convention. I am very inspired by the #FreeArtsMovement and friends leaving free art around town. Read the story and then share it...

FREE COMICS FRIDAY: Dark Mouse: Poetic Justice

Welcome to 2014 and the first Free Comics Friday of the new year. Last month I put together the most collaborative piece for #FCF to date. Alas I had not posted it here until today but I was able to do so on my main Issuu page and it is one of the more popular posts of last year. I was fortunate enough to have artists I admire contribute their interpretation of Dark Mouse as a gallery of pin-up work to the book as well. In lieu of a post last month, please accept TWO digital Dark Mouse comics here this month. Enjoy London Calling and Dark Mouse: Poetic Justice
