Derby City Comic Con! 6/30/12
Last weekend Linda and I had a wonderful time in Louisville, Kentucky at the Derby City Comicon! On our arrival late Friday night we were very happy to run into unofficial greeter Larry Hama in our hotel lobby and the later Linda and I took a walk to find a place to eat. There we found Chicagoans Sean Dove:iconlimnus:, Mike Norton:iconmiketron2000:, and Timothy Seeley:iconcoltnoble:.

At the show we enjoyed meeting attendees and fans from a part of the country that we've never been to. A local said, "While you're in Louisville you have to try the Hot Brown!"
At the show Dennis Calero asked if we'd like to go out to dinner with him, Karissa Johnson, Rodney Ramos, and Matt Triano:iconmatttriano:. There we were also joined by Steve Scott. It was a fantastic time and great conversation. A lot of shop talk but also a lot of laughs!

The next day before leaving Linda and I  took a walk through the city admiring some of the great architecture. I'll post a few favorites.

We drove to the show but really enjoyed the trip through Kentucky, Indiana, and Illinois.
Thanks again to Eric Banister for the invite and being such a great host!

The trip my wife Linda and I took to France earlier this month was amazing! We visited many sites in Paris and of course a big highlight was the Louvre Museum! We could have spent a week in that historic place!
Later we were driven by our host to the city of Lyon for our appearance at the comic shop "Comics Zone" owned by Kader Chaibi . A shop that specializes in American comics. I never imagined such a place existed in France. We had a lot of fun meeting fans of American comic art doing more sketches than I can count!
Lyon is a beautiful city. Wonderful architecture and also houses a lot of great art at the "Museum of Fine Arts of Lyon" (Musée des beaux-arts de Lyon) including 19th century French paintings by Monet, Delacroix, Gauguin, Van Gogh, etc.

I'll post pics and art soon from our spectacular adventure!

In early 2012 I did extensive on screen art BOOMSTICK FILMS Horror/Comedy DOCTOR SPINE! Written and directed by John Wesley Norton. DOCTOR SPINE stars Michael Wexler, Larry Thomas, Joe Estevez, Reggie Bannister, Jen Schmidt, Kris Desautels, Cyn Dulay, Renee Domenz, Xango Henry, Judy Tenuta, Lisa Loring and many others.

I've uploaded much the art I did for the film both in the black and white inked original version and the final digital color I did for each piece. All together in a DOCTOR SPINE GALLERY
LOOKING AHEAD - My 2012 Schedule
I'm planning my 2012 schedule so if anyone can use the art skills in penciling and inking of Bill Reinhold keep me in mind for the upcoming year! :-)
e-mail me at hedrawscomics@aol.com

Visit the Bill Reinhold Inner-View Gallery Store
for many great examples of comic art I've been part of through the years.

Commissions fortunately are pretty full up right now but anyone interested can still be put on my list for when time opens up.
e-mail me at hedrawscomics@aol.com and I will send details for pricing on various types of drawings from head sketches to color scenes.

One of my very favorite (if not favorite) comic and newspaper strip artists is FrankRobbins!
Frank Robbins' work on his newspaper strip creation "Johnny Hazard", and comic book characters Batman, and the Shadow continue to amaze me.
I wanted to make it easier to share with others a lot of his art so I put together a gallery of pieces gathered on the net, etc. through the years. This gallery is made up of art that he penciled and inked from the 1940's to the 70's. picasaweb.google.com/BillReinh…
If you already love Robbins take a look and if you don't know it PLEASE take a look! Enjoy!
