You know how on older comics there’s a small picture of the character in the upper left hand corner with the number of the issue and the price? That’s called a corner box, and it’s pretty much a Marvel thing, DC usually just has a logo in the corner. I love cornerboxes, and the older the better. I’m working on reproducing some of them but the silver age issues I have around are pretty beat up. Here’s a few scans I did today.
The one on the left has been cleaned up a bit, they’re pretty rough though. I like the beat up look of them myself, it gives a lot of character and looks like they’re from a well loved and read comic. Maybe at some point I’ll redraw them so they’re crisp but these sure look cool I think.
I may have to seek out some old issues just for the corner box. I love them though. Be looking for some prints in the near future.

I have so many images laying around from the past ten years or so I thought I would just post them up on here so I’ll have a record of them in case something happens to my hard drive down the road. Some are pretty fun, there’s a lot of people from the last ten years of doing the tshirts that we know. Some parts of my life in Vancouver for sure. These are all super random and are just posted depending on the folder I found them in.

I’ve been scrambling to find a way to get some product out there with the lack of a production space to do any larger scale prints or paintings. I bought a low end Wacom tablet a while back and decided I would spend some time learning how to draw on it. I didn’t think I would take to it as well as I have but for the kind of PopArt media manipulation I do it fits like a glove. To some small extent it’s like doing the screenprints I was doing in the way that I manipulate existing images. Here’s some of the pieces I’ve done in the past week or so.
I have very much been enjoying the immediacy of the media. I tend to lose my patience and need immediate dramatic results with traditional media which I think is why I like the screenprinting so much.
I’ll be making mini prints of these, anything I can do to at least be creating something. I’ll have them for sale at the Vancouver Night Market and wherever I can find a good selling venue. If you’re interested in any of them please message me and let me know.
