Sparkplug and me

The Comics Reporter has a Holiday series of big interviews going on for the next couple of weeks. It includes a new interview with Emily Nilsson, Virginia Paine and Me about the future of Sparkplug Comic Books, the company started by my friend Dylan Williams who passed away this year.  Please check it out. And please follow our activities at the Sparkplug Books website, blog, twitter and facebook pages.

Also, we've started a group blog to archive the life and work of Dylan Williams. Check it out and follow it.  It's off to a pretty good start. It's a bit random so far, but eventually we hope to grow this as a resource for all the knowledge, artwork, writings and contributions Dylan made to the comics world.

Interviews... reviews... Holidays... etc...

There's a really long, career spanning interview with me over at The Comics Journal. I talk about everything and reveal things I'm already regretting. Enjoy!

Also, there's a couple of really nice reviews that came out:
The "erotic science fiction" magazine Circlet calls me "an exemplar of surrealism!" I like that.

Jordan Hurdler puts The Wolf among his "Best of 2011" books and has nice things to say about it.

Levon Jihanian's Danger Country #1 has a good review up at The Comics Journal. I will be co-publishing this book with Teenage Dinosaur beginning in 2012.

Have a Happy Holiday!  Here's a Krampus I drew last night:

That's right, for this week only I will be taking commissions for corpse paint post it portraits. What does that mean? I did a series of these portraits of musicians who paint their faces.
You can see a Flickr set of them here.
Most of these musicians are in the black metal world.
But I also included KISS and Alice Cooper and some others.

These portraits are done on post it notes with oil paint markers. 
They are fun to make and cheap to commission!
They vary in size. 
$30 plus $5 priority shipping 
(International orders please e-mail me your address for shipping price)

I'll paint any musician with corpse paint.
If interested, please e-mail me at tom (at) iwilldestroyyou (dot) com
I will stop taking requests on Friday.
I will complete all portraits this week
and ship them on Saturday the 17th
Give them as a X-mas gift!
Happy Holidays!
