LAST 2019 BOB ALMOND PUBLIC APPEARANCE!

In an 11th hour development Bob and the Inkwell Awards were recently invited to the 4th SYRACUSE NEW YORK COMIC CON on Saturday December 7! It’s a new venue for us and only a one-day show. But the Inkwells will have senior contributor Mike Prast to help cover the booth and they’ll be introducing the latest, new Ms. Inkwell spokesmodel […]

Review of BLACK PANTHER: VISIONS OF WAKANDA

From my photo album on Facebook: “I knew the book was being released this month (for Black History month, probably) but I didn’t expect to have a comped copy appear in the mail through Diamond Distributions. I’m hoping my pals Sal Velluto, Don McGregor and Priest got one each. I’m guessing maybe it was sent by Marvel […]

2020 Convention Appearances

The “Newsflash” section at the top of this page now lists my confirmed show apps for the year along with the Inkwell Awards unless specified not. The premiere show of the year is the Ace Comic Con: Northeast- Boston on March 20-22. We previously attended Ace’s first show in 2017 in Long Island, NY and […]

COVID-19 and THE BOB ALMOND INKWELL (“I’m Back!”)

Hello! It’s been 7 months since I last posted a news article and it wasn’t from being too busy. My site up and wouldn’t allow me access because my server was out of space. I approached Steven Freivogel, the Inkwell Awards webhost who updated that site, and asked him for help. I called my server and upgraded […]

My Gallery on temporary(?) hiatus

As I’ve mentioned here in the past, for years now my popular commission gallery has not been updated due to website problems going back to my webmaster who created this site after my original site was going to collapse under the weight of the files there. My second Joomla gallery here (@170+ entries) allowed me to expand […]

I’ll be celebrating Batman Day!

Last year my bud Mike Lilly appeared at That’s Entertainment, a legendary comic book specialty shop in Worcester, MA, to sign on the 6th annual Batman Day. I helped him ink the Batman/Catwoman wedding print (colored by David Ocampo) that was given away to the first 100 attendees. But Mike wasn’t able to get me invited to said event. […]

FanX Salt Lake Comic Con Fall 2019: The Reprise!

I have the Terrificon to attend in a week and FanExpo Boston Con the weekend after that. But months ago I was invited to return to the FanX Salt Lake Comic Con Fall 2019 for September 5-7 but I couldn’t officially make a statement until today! I, again, will be joining my oft-partner and pal Sal Velluto from Black Panther, […]

Bob’s been framed!

I’ve been slowly collecting photos that commission clients have sent me over time so I figured I have enough now to post an article. I’m always stunned when I see images of my work framed and hung up alongside so many other greats. I thought you visitors might get a kick out of this. FROM […]

New, upcoming BLACK PANTHER items of note

I noticed in the August for October Previews catalog from Diamond that Marvel is soliciting 2 special projects with the King of Wakanda. The Vistions of Wakanda book will contain interview material from myself & Sal Velluto and possibly reproduce some artwork by us. The postcard book might also have some art reproduced by us […]

“BOB ALMOND DAY”!

Friendly Neighborhood Comics run by my longtime friend Ernie Pelletier has generously arranged for me to schedule a signing event in his store. In recent years I’ve been found at his store on Free Comic Book Day in a duel commitment with him early in the day and a commute to New England Comics: New Bedford for later in the […]
