On May 31, the very day I left for Beijing, Dave faxed some juicy info my way to share with you.
Belated thanks, Dave. And y'all have heard most of it already.
"LitGraphic: The Art of the Graphic Novel" will be opening on Saturday, Nov 10, at the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge MA. Included in the exhibit will be 21 pieces from the Cerebus series:
Cover Art from the trade paperbacks Church and State (Volume I) and Jaka's Story.
Interior art from Jaka's Story: pages 78, 79, 108, 109, 462, 463
Interior art from Women: pages 164, 165, 186
Interior art from Form and Void: pages 488, 489, 492, 494, 469
Interior art from The Last Day: pages 63, 228, 229, 238, 239
In other, related news, my fax to Dave about my reaction to the great "dumping on his commissions" controversy will get its "BlogginMale" premiere sometime in late July, and will be the launch point for commentary on the question of Sycophant or Not: are the visible spokespeople in the world after Cerebus actually quasi-official spokespeople or are we/they simply ferociously independent art collectors?
Should be interesting, watch for it.
And in other, unrelated FYI news: Dave and Ger are still taking on joint commissions and dividing the spoils. More about this and other exciting original art milestones when I get clearance to share it.
