CARTOON MUSEUM SIGNING: Sat. April 27th. 11am to 2pm. !!!!!

Don't pay the ransom money - I've escaped... and resurfaced... more or less..... unscathed!  Got bogged down, overwhelmed by everything in the pipeline, work wise! So thanks for everyone's patience while I took some time to get my act together.

Remember even if i take some time off, shift to hibernation mode, I will resurface ground-hog like eventually! It was weird digging through all this old art,

...and batches of newer art lying around the studio, awaiting to be delivered to the Museum.... so much stuff lying about in little piles. You'll probably recognize most of these pieces here.

Looks like we've finally nailed down a DATE & TIME  for the Museum signing: Sat. April 27th. 11am to 2pm.  I'll be signing and you can order a copy of the "Sam Kieth: Samplings and Dabblings, a Retrospective from the Comic Art Museum.

Andrew Farago will start a Facebook page to count it down and a Kickstarter page to cover the costs of supplying the Museum with some printed copies, so keep your eye out for those too!

If you live in the bay area.. you may have already seen these pieces here. Most are mostly already framed on on display right now. Wanna thanks Andrew Farago, Scott Dunbier at IDW for kicking off this whole thing, and Shaenon K. Garrity, John Butler and Ryan Graff their exhaustive designing and editing work....

.....in getting the Museum book looking, well... looking like a *real* book and everything!

A show of pervious work may seems odd, since chances are you've seen this published or on the blog already. But I have to remember there's nothing like seeing things in person, is there?

If your *not* in the bay area... no worries. That's what the Worlds are books are for.  I chose to avoid putting in work for hire stuff like Marvel or DC stuff... i wanted it Worlds of Sam" books to be more 'creator owned' focused.

But if you wanna drool over classic older stuff, the Museum books good for that.

I can see this year... will really be my 'big year out' publicly. Outside of this (and San Diego this year), I think.... overall it's best I keep chained to my drawing board. I haven't even gotten to SDCC yet, but you all know what these big shows are like. It's crazy. But the fans make it worth it, they really do. 

More Good News: There's a rumor I may stop by at *one* other spot in another bay area location.  Still up in the air. But, assuming that second place event even happens? Just know, between 

1. Cartoon Art Museum resepction, and 
2. this one other possible mystery appearance, 

these TWO places are your ONLY chance to get something signed from me.... for a looooong time. 

Yeah, I know I haven't hit the east coast, and I promise in the coming years... will *try* to make my way out there.... eventually if I can. 

I think I am just am better built as a machine... and happier.... when avoiding too much traveling.  You fans... are beyond cool and make it all worth while!  Comic cons, crowds in general, not so much. I wish i could just beam myself over to your living room, sign, then beam myself back home again - that would be the best. 

Btw, here's a bunch of moss I added to the box... real moss - I hope it lasts the length or the show before it dies - wish me luck there! But, I can always add new moss to it later...can't i? 

Also, my apologies for the plethora of creep pharmaceutical spam polluting the comments section. Only way around that I see it making you enter a code before posting comments, which is a pain, but might be worth it to keep the spam to a dull roar? what do you think?

So, while I HAVE disappeared for a while, hopefully the 96 page Museum book, the 240 page Art book ( which IDW solicited already so I have to get it out now!) which will be out in July for comic con, hopefully these will make up for everything.

Just remember, anything you see that I do art-wise that you do like, remember YOU guys are the inspiration for my creating it in the first place!  So these books, and future ones...

 are really my trying to give back to you, my fans.... for urging me out of my doldrums (and introverted turtle shell) and into the sunlight, for however briefly i manage pop my head out.

My humble thanks to you all!
- Sam

YAY! Sam is back! I thought - 'guess I should check the blog for the heck of it' and here you are! :)

This post is filled with loads of cool stuff. All that stuff piled up like that drives me crazy...so curious to see all of it!

Really wish I could make it out to see the museum and / or SDCC (not for lack of trying - shakes fist angrily in the air at the ticket buying 'process'. I was one of the gazillion that were denied tickets). Just isn't gonna happen, life keeps getting in the way :( Would have been cool to say hey.

Can't wait for the art book.

Happy you are back. Thanks for being you Sam.


(Please stop scheduling your appearances when I am traveling for work (kidding) bit of bad luck on my part)

jennifer kraska said...

BTW - I am full of hope for that second mystery appearance.

Joshua Stone said...

Is there going to be a limited World of book released at SDCC? I know IDW did that last year for Amanda Conner's art book.

Hi, Sam!

I am afraid I will never have the chance to greet you in person, since I live in Rome and have been to the States just once on my life, but it is good to know that you are giving your fans in the USA so many reasons to be happy! Apart from the pleasure derived from seeing all the artbook you keep showing us in your blog, I love all those book racks and volumes that appear from time to time in the photographs you post. I hope you don't mind my asking, but would you accept to take a kind of digital interview on this (books, I mean)? I run a rather modest blog in Spanish devoted to discuss rare books and authors that for the most part haven't been translated into Spanish. I have recently started asking artists and musicians I admire about the books they enjoy reading. I was wondering whether you would be willing to take part in such an experiment. I usually send the interviwees a kind of questionnaire with 13 questions in all, but I was thinking that perhaps you could (in the hypothesis you may find it interesting, of course) write a thought on your favourite literature, the books that have influenced your works, your first memory related to anything bookish... whatever you find appealing, really. I am sure that all the avid readers that have approached your work in translation (and I assure you that you have a good bunch of admirers in Spain) would be thrilled to read what you have to say. Of course I will understand if you turn down such a proposal coming from someone you even don't know! Anyway, having gathered courage to write you these few lines is enough reward for me.

The blog is called En La Lista Negra (In the black list): http://enlalistanegra.wordpress.com/

My e-mail address: batcaver_blog@yahoo.es

All the best,


PS. By the way, and with regard to comment moderation, personally I don't mind codes as long as they keep spam away.

Sam you and Wayshack have been a huge influence on my art for several years. I can only hope one day to reach a level that comes to a fraction of your skill. Thank you for all your blood, sweat and tears you have spilled into each piece! I hope one day to add your signature to my Darker Image #1 I have signed by Lee and Liefeld! Thanks again and hope to see you on the east side one day!

Marcus Collar said...

Mightyduke said...

I got my plane ticket!! I am so excited & nervous to finaly meet Mr. Kieth!!!!

Jet Strange said...

Hello Mr. Kieth, I am here to ask if you owned the full copyrights and image rights to The Maxx? If so May I have a Contact Mail? Or could you tell me who owns the rights to the maxx. Thank you and Have have a great day :)

Jay Howard said...

Sam...is there ANY way you can sign on ANY day besides Saturday? You have many fans who cannot do this for religious purposes, and it would be heartbreaking to miss out AGAIN (last signing was also on a Saturday) because of our religious convictions.

Please, please, please, I BEG of you, PLEASE pick another day, or, if that's not possible, an additional non-Saturday day.

Please. I beg of you.
