MORE ROY DOTY

If you were one of the rowdy mob present at Roy Doty's 85th birthday party, you were fortunate to catch a glimpse of some of Roy's latest work -- a series of typically amazingly intricate posters featuring cats, doves and more. No need for me to describe, as the posters and other Doty items are featured merchandise at a new website, Alphabetics. These must be seen!

While we're at it, GLC member Wayno found this BLOG TRIBUTE to Doty, and we're happy to share.

FEAZELL IN PRINT

Josh Blair, publisher of Candy or Medicine, has announced that sketches by mini-comic legend (and GLC member) Matt Feazell will appear in CoM Volume Two, which will be out in January. Funnyman Ricky Glore is also to be featured. (There is still room left for people who want to contribute to Vol. 2. The deadline is December 10.)

Candy or Medicine is a quarterly mini-comic anthology which showcases a diverse talent of mini-comics creators, provides a low-cost exposure of mini-comics to new audiences and shows people of all ages and skill levels that they can make comics.

LOTSA ROB HARRELL NEWS

Straight from the man hisself --

Hi everybody,

I'm happy to announce that there's a new Big Top book available! I've got a few things to tell you about, so let's get started...

1. The book! 'Sawdust and Greasepaint' is the second collection of Big Top strips, and it picks up right where the last book ends. So, act now! Get your hands on one of these babies! Buy ten! They make great gifts...

'Sawdust and Greasepaint' is only available through Lulu.com. It's a great print-on-demand site where I was able to design the book myself. It looks great and... this could just be me, but I swear the strips are extra funny.

Okay. The link:

Big Top: Sawdust and Greasepaint

2. The next order of business is to let you know about the NEW and IMPROVED website, www.robharrell.com... It's so new, it still has that new website smell. It has a great Big Top section, where you can see a bunch of my favorite strips. Plus, information on my fine art and illustration work.

So, check it out at www.robharrell.com

3. Third, let me tell you about the Big Top Shop at CafePress.com This is where you can fill all of your Big Top merchandise needs. T-shirts, coffee mugs, stickers and the like. Get 'em while they're hot at... Big Top Shop at CafePress

4. And finally, I wanted to let everyone know about my show in San Francisco in November! This is my second solo show of my paintings this year. The first, at the Wally Workman Gallery in Austin, Texas, went really well. I'm now excited to be having a show at the Hespe Gallery in San Francisco on November 10th. If you're in the area, come by and say Hi. The links to these galleries are below...

Okay! Sorry so long-winded, but I've been saving up my news until the book was ready. Thank you for all of your support!

Sincerely,

Rob Harrell
