The Hill graphic novel

My bf Sal's new graphic novel The Hill hits the comic book store shelves today!! I want to congratulate him and the artist Jok on another great looking book!

The Hill graphic novel

Here is the description:

Jack and Jill went up the hill... Jill is a failed assassin; Jack is a failed experiment. Both were created by the same evil company; both want out. A beaten and shattered Jill has lost everything she has ever cared for and hasn't the will to live, but her employers won't let her die until she completes one last mission... kill the monster Jack! When a mutual connection comes into Jill's crosshairs everything that they've ever known becomes a question mark, sending them into a bloody downward spiral to the end! Jack fell down and broke his crown, but will Jill came tumbling after?

The Hill graphic novel

You can find it online at Midtown Comics

Detail from first print

It came out very, um, "rustic". I didn't expose the screen long enough so it came out with all of that texture in the background. I stripped the image from the screen and re-exposed it. So next week I will try it again and test it out with some fabric instead of paper.

recycled shelf and attempts at print making

Recycled wood shelf:
Made from wood(dresser drawer and a window pane?) found on the street and leftover wall paint.

I told my father what I was looking to do and he found the wood, cut it up and then put it back together and I painted and sanded it.

Print made with cut-out wax paper

Rough milk pot sketches:
Came out craptacular. I need to get a thin wax pencil or maybe use pen and ink. I did this with oil pastels.

final image to be printed. Next I have to find paper or fabric to print on and then I will show you the results next week.

Seen on ebay- Decole canisters!

I think these are sweet looking. The mushroom on top might be mush-overkill but I haven't decided yet.

Another shop I drool over:

(photos from their site)

Labour and Wait in England. Which I accidentally found when I was wandering around alone near Brick Lane last year. Everything in this shop is/was so perfectly selected, I was going to pass out!

Here is a link to the Swedish manufacturer of the linen washcloths - Växbo Lin

I bought this rustic wooden shelf from etsy. It is made from recycled/ re-purposed wood. It matches the image on my calendar this month exactly!!

yes, I'll take one of everything please

alt. title- "Enamel Enamored"

I was googling cleaning brushes again (no, I'm still not over my brush obsession) and I came across this UK site - Willow & Stone. I seriously would want one of everything they have. But alas, I don't have a suitcase full of British pounds or enough space to put these beautiful things in.

Timmie is on his way to S.F.!

Timmie will be signing autographs* at the Double Punch gallery in San Francisco Nov 21 - Jan 11. He is part of the Tinyshop exhibit featuring small/tiny works by over 50 artists. I won't be in attendance (tear,tear) but please go check it out and take tons of pictures so I can see too!

Here is more info on the show:

tinyshop celebrates the preciousness of "mini" -- the shortest distance between 2 points, the space of minutiae, and creative endeavors on a small scale. Curated by Antoinette Celes, tinyshop is a pop-up shop & art show event to be held at double punch gallery in San Francisco's North Beach district. Fun-spirited folks and magnifying glasses most welcome.

Nov 21, 2007 - Jan 11, 2008
opening night: Nov 24, 2007

double punch gallery
1821 Powell Street
San Francisco, CA 94133

*no actual Timmie autographing will be happening. He wants to keep a low profile on the west coast. You know how it is.
