Indie Pop-Up Fair – Saturday, April 27th

MarysPopUp

I’ll be setting up shop at the Indie Pop-Up Fair this coming Saturday, April 27th at Mary’s of Course in downtown Winston-Salem. I’ll be selling original art from the various “alpha-projects,” a few minicomics, Animal Alphabet post cards, etc. This is the first year for this event, so I don’t know what to expect, but …

From 2006: Charles M. Schulz: His World in Art and Objects.

plas05

There’s a recently-published article over at the Hooded Utilitarian blog speculating about the origin of some replacement Peanuts strips “ghosted” by cartoonist Al Plastino in either the late 70s or early 80s. In discussion on Twitter, I mentioned asking Schulz’s widow, Jeannie, about this back when there was a Schulz/Peanuts exhibit here at Wake Forest University. …

Some Star Wars Fan Art

star-wars-poster

I was recently asked to donate a piece of artwork for a local Star Wars-themed charity benefit auction. I’m a huge Star Wars nut (the movie came out when I was six, so I’m pretty much the perfect age to be a Star Wars junkie) so I knew I had to find time to do …

sept-2011-pg-4-web

I’ll be at the Winston-Salem Toy and Comic Book Show this Saturday. I’ll have copies of Amelia Earhart: This Broad Ocean and my other books for sale as well as original art–probably just my smallish things like animal alphabet drawings. Come one, come all!  The event will be in the same shopping center as Ssalefish …

towle_fraser_xmas_final

With the year coming to a close and Christmas fading into the past, I guess it’s safe to post our Christmas card from this year.  We actually managed to mail out the physical cards the week before Christmas this year, so anyone that’s been mailed a card has had it in their mitts for a …

My EC Comics-inspired Birthday/Halloween Card

2010-10-29-14.14.32

As much as I love those crazy internets, I’m still a big fan of having actual paper cards that you send through the mail when you’re inviting people to a party. My wife and I both turned 40 this fall and so we decided to have a small afternoon gathering to celebrate–and of course I …

I’m a “Character” in Today’s NY Times

08lives-t_CA0-articleInline

My friend (and screenwriter) Angus MacLachlan has a short article in the “Lives” section of today’s New York Times. It’s a true story that takes place in our neighborhood (Angus lives around the corner from me) and the pictured chair lived in my studio for about a year between the events detailed in the story, …

Local “Comic Book Reading Room”

comicreadingroom

Notice anything unusual about the image on the cover of our local monthly rag?  I sure didn’t.  I gave it a cursory flip-through and then left it on the coffee table.  My two year old daughter, though, is apparently far more observant than I; she looked at it and then presented it back to me …

Ssalefish Illustration – Finished (Pretty Much)

ssalefish

Here’s a completed illustration I did for my local comics shop, Ssalefish Comics & Toys.  I did a rough version of this image on the endpapers of a copy of Amelia Earhart – This Broad Ocean that I gave the owner, Bret, a while back.  He liked the illustration and wanted a more polished version–and …

Happy Independence Day!

m4th

I’ve been sticking pretty tightly to all comics-related posts of late, but given that it’s the 4th of July, I’ll let that slide:  Happy Independence Day, all! We spent the morning of this fourth of July at our neighborhood “parade,” which might be more accurately described as, “flag- and crepe paper-encrusted kids, dogs and bikes …
