kaBOOMbox Vol. 1 Kickstarter

I'm sure you all know about the Brand New Nostalgia art blog, right? Started by OOSA'a own Andrew MacLean and featuring OOSA artists Logan Faerber and Alexis Ziritt (along with a ton of other talented artists), BNN puts out amazing art every week online. Now, they are taking it to the next level and producing their first anthology: kaBOOMbox Vol. 1.

The book will be 200+ pages and feature new illustrations and comics from 18 international artists and will include work from the entire Out of Step Arts roster. That's right! Toby Cypress, Ming Doyle, Paul Maybury and Greg Ruth have all been invited to contribute art to the book and have graciously accepted!  So, besides the OOSA crew, you'll also get artwork by:

To get this accomplished, the folks behind BNN have started a Kickstarter campaign to help raise the $9500 to print the book and they need you to back this project! There are some great incentives available to those who do. Check 'em out and make a contribution! And if you are on the fence about it, just read this write-up about kaBOOMbox and BNN on ComicsAlliance.com. Or this one here by Robot6 on ComicBookResources.com. Or this Interview with Andrew MacLean on FreakinAwesomeNetwork.net.

This book is going to be a big deal and I'm so proud to have Out of Step Arts associated with it.

September Calendar of Events

The OOSA artists have a lot going this month. Take a look! September 7thAlexis, Andrew, Logan, Greg, Toby and Paul (along with a bunch of other great indie artists) will all have work in this show and it's all for sale. I'll be there for the opening selling OOSA prints and maybe Anniversary Print Sets. If you're in Richmond, VA, you should definitely come by and say hello.

About the exhibition: In an environment that is permeated with ads and posters for cinematic adaptations of comics, an equal amount of representation for the comic’s originators are rarely seen. The aim of &@$#! is to introduce the craft of the comic creator through the display of original pencil & ink drawings and their “fine art” paintings & illustrations. Audience members ranging from fans of comics to visual & performing arts supporters will be amazed and delighted to erode preconceived notions of what it means to be a comic artist. Their content is not solely driven by spandex wearing heroes and heroines, but to tell a story like the storytellers before them that both delight and educate. www.Gallery5arts.org 

September 15th

Alexis, Andrew and Logan will participating in the "Battles Without Honor and Humanity" group show at Floating World Comics in Portland, OR.

About the exhibit: This exhibition will be based loosely around yakuza/crime noir films by directors such as Akira Kurosawa, Takeshi “Beat” Kitano, Takeshi Miike, Kinji Fukasaku, Seijun Suzuki, Yukio Mishima, Sogo Ishii and Shinya Tsukamoto. As a genre, yakuza films are divided into two subsets: ninkyo-eiga or “chivarly films” featuring honorable outlaws caught between duty and compassion. Then there is jisturoku-eiga, the modern yakuza films which feature the stifling brutality of a life of crime. The artists and writers in this show will explore and pay homage to this powerful and unique genre. www.floatingworldcomics.com 

September 16-17

Ming Doyle will be attending the Small Press Expo sitting at E10 and selling her wares. I'll be at the show as well, but I'll be mobile. Checking out the sights, as it were, and promoting the OOSA artists. www.SPXpo.com

September 22-23

Alexis Ziritt will be a guest of the Cincinnati Comic Expo. If you're going and you'd like to pre-arrange a commission from him, you can do so here. www.cincinnaticomicexpo.com

OOSA Anniversary Print Set

Well, I've been doing Out of Step Arts for about a year now. What better way to celebrate than to offer some of the special things the OOSA artists have done this year? The OOSA Anniversary Print Set is a limited edition box set of 50. These are precision, two-piece construction boxes designed with a close tolerance to keep out dirt and dust. They have a black paper lining with a white foam backing and a black textured acrylic coated exterior featuring a snazzy OOSA logo.

On the inside, you'll find the 3 collaborative OOSA prints we did to promote Out of Step Arts at our convention appearances this year.

- "Demon Wolf" by Greg Ruth and Logan Faerber - "Unknown World" by Paul Maybury and Alexis Ziritt - "Road Rage" by Toby Cypress and Andrew MacLean

These three prints are 4-color inks on 11x17 inch 100lb. paper with a satin finish.

And exclusively available ONLY in the OOSA Anniversary Print Set:

-"Apathia" by Ming Doyle

This is a print of Ming's painting for the 'Villains and Assassins' show at the Strychnin Gallery in Berlin and it is BEAUTIFUL! The print is 4-color inks on 100lb. linen to replicate the texture of the original canvas and measures 11x15.5 inches.

All of the prints are matching numbered and signed by the artists.

I am opening these up for pre-order in the OOSA store since they are not <i>quite</i> ready. I'm still missing a piece of the puzzle. Please allow 3-4 weeks for delivery.

A tribute show inspired by the hit Cartoon Network™ series, Adventure Time features all-new works by more than 43 international designers, illustrators, and plush artists.

Ming Doyle and Toby Cypress will each have a piece in the "VILLAINS & ASSASSINS" show by Strychnin Gallery Berlin.

On August 10th the world‘s most evil, dangerous and depraved characters will reign Strychnin Gallery at the gathering of Villains and Assassins.

These characters constantly engage millions of spectators into a love-hate relationship due to their brilliant but twisted minds, their tragic history or supernatural powers and high-tech equipment.

 

All of these iconic figures are best known for their remarkable characteristics and obsessions. While some simply enjoy the thrill of the kill, others are just made to execute orders or even torn between what they think they must do by nature but still despise.

No matter what vicious plans and compulsions some of these malicious creatures have, Strychnin Gallery has invited the most eccentric and compelling villains to be showcased for your pleasure. Come and see them until September 9th.

Paul Maybury will have a piece in the "ADVENTURE TIME TRIBUTE" show at Gallery Nucleus.

Come on grab your friends, on August 18th we're going to very distant lands. Specifically to the Land of Ooo, where Jake the Dog and Finn the Human share unpredictable adventures with a cast of characters. Cartoon Network and Nucleus present a totally lumpin' awesome exhibit featuring over thirty truly talented artists paying tribute to the animated series. The roster also includes artists from the series as well as the Kaboom comic book. Stay tuned as we announce more details about artist appearances, contests, and opening night festivities.

The fun will never end...it's Adventure Time!

Logan will have prints of his piece at available at the OhNo!Doom Gallery. Toby has limited EPIC edition prints of his piece available in the OOSA store. And stay tuned to find out how you can get exclusive prints of Ming's piece!

New OOSA prints for Heroes Con

A while ago, I had asked the OOSA artists to team up to create some one-of-a-kind prints to showcase the talent at Out of Step Arts. If you'll recall, Greg Ruth and Logan Faerber did an amazing job on their print that was debuted at Spectrum LIVE! last month.

Well now, the other prints are ready to be revealed and will be debuted at Heroes Con next week.

Andrew MacLean and Toby Cypress worked together to create a futuristic world where the ladies rule the road.

Alexis Ziritt and Paul Maybury teamed up on this ultimate team-up comic cover: "Unknown World".

 

We'll have all of these prints, along with the original art, for sale at the OOSA tables in Indie Island (522-527). The prints are 4 color inks on 11 x 17 100 lb "silk" paper and only cost $10 each or $25 for all 3! Supplies are limited, though, so swing by early if you want 'em.  You can also have your pick of one the prints if you donate at least $20 to the Hairy Cell Leukemia Research Foundation AND run in the Heroes Con Fun Run Saturday morning.

I could not be more proud to be offering these, so I hope you'll come by and check them out.

OOSA at Spectrum LIVE!

Spectrum LIVE! is just around the corner and we are getting excited for Out of Step Arts to make it's official debut. Alexis Ziritt, Logan Faerber, Toby Cypress and Andrew MacLean will all be there, so come by booth #903 to chat and check out all of the books, original art and prints they'll be bringing. And speaking of prints...... Since this will be OOSA's first convention appearance and all, I wanted to do something special to mark the occasion. OOSA artists Logan Faerber and Greg Ruth (who were both selected to be in the upcoming Spectrum 19) worked together to come up with this amazing piece just for the show. We'll have prints of this for sale, as well as the original, so be sure come see us and pick up this convention exclusive!

UPDATE: Regrettably, Logan Faerber had to cancel his appearance at Spectrum LIVE. I'll still try to have some of his work on hand for everyone to check out, though.

Can I help you find something?

I'm sure you all are aware of the OOSA store by now, right? The artists have a great sampling of some of their work available for sale there. I try to encourage the artists to send me new work to list there every once in a while so there are new choices for people looking to buy something.  In fact, Alexis Ziritt just put up a bunch of new stuff so he can pay to replace his recently deceased computer and make his way to some conventions (Spectrum and Heroes Con) this summer. But, did you know that pretty much all of the artists have more work available for sale than what's listed in the store? Paul Maybury, for example, has pretty much every page from every project he's ever worked on and he's looking to find it a new home so he can cover some recent unexpected expenses. Andrew, Logan, Toby and Greg, I'm sure, all have stuff they'd love to sell, too, that's not listed in the store. So how do you get your hands on all of this unlisted stuff? Just ask! If there is a specific page or an image you've seen from any of the OOSA artists that you want to own, just get in touch with me and I'll check and see if it's available. The worst I can say is "Sorry, it's already sold." And if you're looking for something really specific, several of the OOSA artists are open for commissions right now and would be happy to draw you whatever you're looking for.

Two OOSA Artists Chosen For Spectrum 19

Greg Ruth and first-timer Logan Faerber were both selected to appear in the 19th edition of Spectrum! This book features the best of "Contemporary Fantastic Art" from around the world, so it's a pretty big deal that these guys made it in. There is an open submission process, but the competition is steep and there are hundreds, if not thousands, of submissions every year. Here is a picture of two of the judges looking at just a small portion of all of the work sent in. That's a lot of Styrofoam cups!

If you are planning to come to the Spectrum LIVE! event in May, be sure to swing by the OOSA booth (#903) and congratulate Logan in person.
