The Official Bob Almond Website: updated monthly!
Two months later.... Print E-mail
Written by Bob Almond

I'm back!  Having completed two issues of GF1 (GREEN FORCE ONE): TSUNAMI over Geof Isherwood's pencils for Heroes of the North, I was expecting new pages for issue three any day now when the scedule got changed and now I have 2-3 weeks open....ah, the unpredictable scheduling life of a freelancer;-)  There's still no word on when the series will debut online and I'm regrettably not at the liberty to preview any of the art.

 

So after catching up on some life loose ends and Inkwell Awards matters (and I'm going on walks!), I decided to update the website.  The Store page is updated with two new prints for sale and many items like most of the discounted trades and my last sketchbook copies now marked as SOLD OUT!  For the Credits page I added Heroes of the North and GF1.  For the Gallery I added in the last commission I completed but hadn't yet posted.

 

I will be catching up on some commissions for very patient client Damon Owens.  Hopefully I can knock those off and do the couple of pages for client Danny Best. With only 2-3 weeks free I'm reluctant to open up my commission list yet but should I find out that I'm almost done with the old ones and there's still time left I will conatct my regulars for a heads up that I can take on a limited amount.  Maybe after GF1#3 is done I can publicly announce that the list is open again.

The Bob Almond Inkwell: updated bimonthly??? Print E-mail

HI, and HAPPY NEW YEAR! I want to apologize for not living up to my promise "Update Monthly" since the fall for those of you who make regular stops here (I appreciate you all sincerely and never take your support for granted...ask those who tell me they do at shows I attend). But as usual in such scenarios, I took on a job.  I haven't had an actual inking assignment (as opposed to ongoing commissions and a short-term teaching gig last winter) since Marvel's Heroes for Hire in the spring-fall of 2011. So it was important to take on the work which was offered by my friend artist Geof Isherwood in the late fall. He'd been doing some work for the Canadian publisher Heroes of the North and asked me if I'd like to ink the series Green Force which he was penciling (and lettering and coloring). The series will be offered digitally first and subsequently collected in a trade collection. Issue one is done and I start issue two later this week. When I have more info or graphics I will try to post them here.

 

 

In the meantime in-between issues I'm trying to catch up with a lot of items that have fallen by the wayside like my taxbook, a lot of Inkwell Awards stuff, personal family matters, my health, and, of course, this update.  I know some areas of the site need attention like my Store page (to update new color prints and mark some discounted trades as 'sold') and adding the new gig to my Credits page. I'm supposed to do a commission this week so I'll subsequently also owe a new Gallery entry.

 

I don't know when my next update will take place or how long I'll be busy with work (if all goes as planned, there will be another project down the road to follow Green Force). But I'll do my best to keep you abreast of all the developments here.

Two Shows in November! Print E-mail

Monday, 17 September 2012 17:35
As mentioned in February I will be attending the Rhode Island Comic-Con  for the first time on November 3-4. Well, now I can add and confirm attending the Albany Comic-Con on November 11 after months of keeping the show only on a tentative status (I'm listed on the site but not yet in the promo poster). The Inkwell Awards will be present at both events. Volunteers Alyn Bergstrom will be at RICC and Joe Goulart at both spots. Joe Sinnott will be with us in Albany where we will be debuting the 2nd Joe Sinnott Inking Challenge book for him to sign!

400_js_creator_chronicles_dvdThis item "Creator Chronicles: Joe Sinnott" is solicited in the most-recent Diamond Previews catalog for November (although I don't know the actual shipping date) from Amdale Media. I was interviewed a year and a half ago by Robin Dale at Pittsburgh Comicon on behalf of Joe Sinnott but I'm among many, much more-impressive creators with segments. Check out the first link above for more info!

5911090EI guess September is Bob Almond month at the Herald News based in Fall River, MA.  First I was mentioned in a sentence in an article on the YEAH Program I participated in last winter. From that interview the reporter Deborah Allard decided to interview me since I was the next city away. I was excited because after 20+ years in the business of comic book inking I'd never been interviewed at home before, only via emails, phone calls, or live at conventions. The main article was posted yesterday online, as well as a related article showing some photos she took of me in my room with commission pieces in the works. Some facts are incorrect but that's par for the course for such interviews where there's no time to have the subject proofread the draft like in other formats. Deb's sending me a physical copy of the paper and I appreciate your kindness, courtesy and consideration. (Below, me in my studi inking a recent Scott McDaniel commission--all photos by Deborah Allard).
