Wanna buy some Blot art?

I'm offering some of the original paintings that lead to The Blot for sale now.

To explain how these paintings lead to The Blot, I'll quote myself from an interview with The Comics Journal:
"I wanted to create sort of a generic, nameless man that I could do anything with; a character that could represent me or anyone else. But when I started this series of paintings with him, something still felt stifled about the way I was working. That's when I started dropping ink on top of the paintings. I would finish one, lay it on the floor and drop ink on it to break myself away from the preciousness of constructing a picture... Pretty soon, those ink blots began to take on a life of their own. They became a conceptual element within the paintings as well as a formal abstract element.
... After doing a lot of these, some of them started to feel connected, so I began writing a story around them. The process that has grown out of this is that the paintings serve as a space for me to freely express some stream-of-consciousness ideas without having to worry about the bigger picture. Then later, I come back and see if they work their way into the comics... I had all of these short stories worked out that were based on paintings... I tied all those short stories together with some autobiographical elements, and that's what became the final book "The Blot."

These all date back to 2004/2005
They are all 20 x 24 inches
Watercolor and ink on paper
They come with a nice black wood frame

I've sold a few from this series in the past for various gallery prices.
Right now I'm offering them at a bargain for $500 each (+ shipping):

I love books...

I know Penguin already had Tony Millionaire do the cover for Moby Dick (even though I begged for that opportunity), but I'm still kinda disappointed that nobody had me on their list...

Update- confusion over this one. When I was working on these,I google image-searched Behemoth, and found a photo that I used for reference. But this doesn't look like Nergal, so I couldn't figure out who it was... Turns out it's a dude from The Furor and the confusion was due to this blog entry about The Furor opening for Behemoth... SO, my mistake and the mystery solved. This is The Furor and they sound pretty good:

And this is me:
