Upgrades

I made some long overdue improvements to the site today, including a new banner and theme, infinite scroll, archive link, random posts, Disqus comments, and one-click likes, shares and reblogs. Unfortunately search is no longer available but there’s an easy workaround.

My Dad , Jack, and me in 1952 the year before he died. 28 years later I began a comic strip called “Jack Survives” In 2013 I bought the childhood home that we lived in and I did my art in the cellar and Dad sometimes watched me paint. He was very supportive and proud of my ability considering the fact that he was a working class man with a 10th grade education. I was 15 when he died. I think Dad would have approved of my life as an artist in NYC for 55 years and that I now own and live in the house he last lived in. My Mom sold our house in 1958 and different families lived here over the years until I was able to buy it in 2013. My best paintings have been about this house and my family when we lived here all done from memory. The first time I saw it again since 1958 was 2013. Guess I will now start memory paintings about the artist loft I lived and worked in on w.28th St NYC for the past 50 years.  If you are interested in my work go to my youtube channel at  amereillustrator74

Charles Burns inks John Romita Jr.!

The Burns story Naked Snack features this John Romita Jr. page from the 1983 Official Marvel Comics Try-Out Book that Burns “reworked” in the inking—but retained the original dialog.
