Comic Noir: The Art of Joëlle Jones
The Art Institute of Portland Gallery presents a first look at Jones’ newest work

May 26, 2009—
For the month of June, the Art Institute of Portland Gallery is hosting Portland comic book artist Joëlle Jones and writer Jamie S. Rich in a unique first look at their collaborated novel You Have Killed Me, due this summer from Oni Press. On view will be excerpts and original pages from the book, as well at the opportunity to speak to the artist and writer about the new book and the creative process behind it.

Jones and Rich first collaborated on the acclaimed comic book 12 Reasons Why I Love Her, and have since shown up as a team in the pages of Popgun, Portland Noir, and Madman Atomic Comics. Jones also did the cover and interior illustrations for Rich's novel Have You Seen the Horizon Lately?

Separately, they have multiple creative works between them. Jones has contributed to the long-running comic series Fables at DC/Vertigo, and she drew the Minx young-adult graphic novel Token, written by Alisa Kwitney. Rich has published four prose novels, including Cut My Hair, I Was Someone Dead, and The Everlasting, and wrote the comics series Love the Way You Love, illustrated by Marc Ellerby. He served as the editor-in-chief at Oni Press from 1999 until 2004 and has also worked on the editorial staff at Dark Horse Comics.

The June gallery show, titled “Comic Noir: The Art of Joëlle Jones,” will debut on First Thursday with an artist reception from 6-8 p.m. at the College.

Daily gallery hours are 9 a.m. – 6 p.m., Monday to Thursday; 9 a.m. – 4 p.m., Friday; and 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. Saturday. Exhibit runs through June 27.

This is just a reminder that there are still plenty of original art pages for sale from the books I have worked on. In the sidebar to your right, you will find a downloadable pdf of the pages and prices, as well as details on my commission prices. Right now is a particularly good time for me to sell art, as I am saving up to attend Comic Con. Like last time, too, I will take orders before the show for pieces I can work on at home and deliver to you there.

In addition to the art on the list right now, the next time we update it, the list will include the following, which have just become available:

* Portland Noir story - pages 1, 2, and 5-13 are all $50 each.

* Popgun volume 3 story, "The Jailhouse Swing" - pages 2-8, $100 each

The pages are black-and-white, no lettering.

Madman Atomic Comics #16 and You Have Killed Me pages will go on sale when the books do, so if you pick up the comics and see something you like, feel free to e-mail ahead.

Please e-mail regarding purchase to joellejonesart[at] so we can confirm availability of the art before settign up payment. (Most likely you'll end up talking to Jamie; sorry, that's the way it goes.)

The Full of Pryde show was a success. That's my piece in the lower left.

The art is going to hang at Floating World for the rest of the month, but you can bid on the original art now, with all the proceeds going to the Hemophilia Treatment Center at OHSU.
