I have 9 complete sets of prints leftover from Comic Con, and I want to offer them on the blog first.

These are six prints, printed on nice photo paper, full color, and at a frameable 8" X 10" size.

They are numbered, and can be signed on request; however, the sets are not all matching numbers. We tried to put together as many matching ones in each set as possible, but I think only one remaining is a full run.

The price of each set is $100 plus $6 for postage/fees, etc.

If you are interested, e-mail us at joellejonesart[a]gmail[dot]com

Thanks for this photo go to Steve Sunu, who already has them hanging on his wall!

Also, check out who made the cover of the Portland Mercury this week. And while you're there, read the article by Sarah Mirk about Portland folks at Comic Con!

Back from San Diego and resting up.

Here is a commission from the show, a pin-up of Ralph Denny Apel's Cricket character. Check out his website for more information.

I didn't want to make an announcement until they were done, but I will have a limited run of 8" X 10" glossy prints of all six of my vintage ad parodies for sale at Comic Con.

Each print is limited to 25 only, hand numbered.

We are still debating price, so it is subject to change, but currently we are thinking $20 for each individual print, the whole set for $100.

Get them from me at Artist's Alley table #HH13. For my full schedule, go here.

If there are any leftover, I will set up online sales, but until then, I am only selling them at the show on a first-come, first-served basis.

Comic Con is only a day away. See you all there!

All of the recent 1960s-style ads posted here are now hanging at the Clearing Cafe in Northwest Portland. They will be there through August, along with a new painting in a similar style. (A couple of process photos below.)

Hey, everyone. Comic Con is two weeks away! I will be a special guest at the show this year. This means I'll have a table assigned to me (Artist Alley HH-13), some panels, etc., and that my time at the show will be irregular. This may make it even more important for folks to order sketches ahead. I only have 5 in my queue so far, so there is room.

Sketches: If you want a sketch, set it up through Jamie at golightly[a]gmail[dot]com. He will keep the master list. My convention prices are:

* $40 for black and white, one character - $10 each additional character
* $80 color - $20 each additional character

I will be there all five days, Wednesday through Sunday. I can take commissions and sketch in books at the show, but that will be depending on the queue of any given day.

Other Merchandise: I will also have some books to sell and am working on some goodies. I am hoping to have some prints featuring the recent fake ads I have been doing; depending on how the con goes, we will sell leftovers online. I am also looking into postcard sets.

Original Art: I'll also try to bring some pages, but if there is something you want specifically, it might be good to e-mail ahead to make sure.

Appearances: The full event schedule has not been posted yet, but I am on panels both Saturday and Sunday.

* Saturday, 2:30-3:30 pm: "The Art of the Graphic Novel" with Chester Brown, Craig Thompson, and others in Room 24ABC
* Sunday, 2-3:00 pm: "Spotlight on Joëlle Jones," hosted by Erik Henriksen and featuring Jamie S. Rich in Room 4, followed by a signing in Autograph Area 7 from 3:30 to 4:30 pm

Of course, check the official schedule when it's out to make sure none of this changed. I will also post further updates, including the location of my regular table [update: Artist Alley HH-13) and any scheduled Oni signings to help people find me. Jamie's e-mail will also be good for getting in touch, as he will be checking it more regularly than I will once we are there.
