STRICKART'S BLOOD-CURDLING COLORWEEN! by strickart

IT’S ALIVE!!!

STRICKART’S BLOOD-CURDLING COLORWEEN is available now! 

My first foray into “adult” coloring books is 32 pages of bone-chilling, toe-curling, bowel-distressing images on durable 80 lb. paper suitable for coloring! The book also has color front and back covers on gorgeous glossy cover stock and an interior tombstone sketch page for those who would like a personalized doodle from yours truly. :)

The book is currently available at the incredible Cottonwood Books (cottonwoodbooksbatonrouge.com) in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. 

They will also be available locally at the Louisiana Comic Con: Lafayette this Saturday, the newly reopening Jason’s Southeast Sports Cards & Comics, the Louisiana Book Festival, and many more stores to come.


For purchase online directly through me, please email strickart@gmail.com for details. The book costs $10.00 plus shipping & handling.

FCBD 2016 at Jason's Sports Cards and Comics by strickart

This Saturday, May 7th, 2016 (10am-6pm)

I have been invited to make an appearance at Jason’s Sports Cards & Comics for Free Comic Book Day!

www.facebook.com/JasonsSportsC…

www.facebook.com/southeast.car…

Jason’s is located inside of The Denham Springs Indoor Flea Market (Denham Springs, LA). Now, flea market, I know what you’re thinking, but trust me on this. Proprietor Eddie Kay runs a very classy, gorgeous air-conditioned establishment with tons of new releases, back issues, silver age stuff, and, of course, graphic novels!

I’ll be there doing sketches and selling minicomics and prints. The Esteemed Local Creators joining me thus far will be

:icongavinmichelli: Gavin Michelli and :iconbienvenu: Robert Bienvenu.


Did I mention…FREE COMICS!?!

  • Drinking: delicious Louisiana tap water (still no joke)

Commissions… sorta!

I’ve made a promise of commissions, and currently I am trying to complete samples for folks so you know what you’re getting into.

At the moment, those samples took a back seat to getting the Strickart Patreon itself set up and getting more things fleshed out with The JENN Saga.

BUT, with the computer I’m using sounding more and more like it’s percolating coffee, I need to start slowly opening up these slots… so without further ado, here we go.

BECAUSE my computer is really kinda… dying I can only open up THREE at a time… I apologize but once I have a more functional comp, I can take on more…

All of the money earned from these goes to replacing it. I’m putting a goal of $800 set aside for a great new system. The paying patrons again get the first alerts to when new slots are open.

1.  -OPEN-

2.  -OPEN-

I naturally reserve the right the refuse the requested commission, no backgrounds at the moment, and payments are only available through Paypal.

Please e-mail your request to dstric21@bellsouth.net 

subject: “Commission Request

Try to be as detailed and clear in your request as possible, reference pictures are also a plus. Once I understand what you are asking for, I’ll let you know the full price. If you agree, I’ll create an invoice via Paypal and send that to you. Once I receive your payment, I’ll start on your commission.

It’s official!

Back in November, I was lucky enough to have had the opportunity to work with the incredible director Gary Michael Schultz as the storyboard artist for the feature film Vincent-N-Roxxy, from Unified Pictures.

This was my first official storyboard artist gig! The film hasn’t been released just yet, but I implore you to please check it out when it hits screens. The movie even has Kid Cudi! You know you love some Kid Cudi.

Keep tabs on this film’s upcoming release date at www.vincentnroxxy.com/and www.imdb.com/title/tt3704298/

Frame by Frame Gallery Show Poster by strickart
COME SEE MY SOLO SHOW!!! 

It's called Frame by Frame, and features original comic pages from a few of the various book projects I have done over the years. Much of the work has never even been posted to Deviantart. So there's that too.

The work will be on exhibition from September 15th to October 10th. 

An opening reception will be held on Thursday, September 18th from 5:30 to 8:00 pm. The reception is open to the public. There will be refreshments, music, prints for sale, and guaranteed weirdness!

It's at The Firehouse Gallery, which is upstairs at The Arts Council of Greater Baton Rouge. 427 Laurel Street, Baton Rouge, LA 70801.

The Frog Surgeon by Dean Paschal will be available in stores on August 9th, thanks to Portals Press. I illustrated the cover of this novel. Dean is an incredible writer. You should totally go order some copies. I know I am. :)

Hi there. It's been a long time. A while back, I was hired to do illustrations of gator and crawfish mascots for a great local company called Cajun Clean Soap. It's a good soap and it really works. It takes the seafood funk off of your hands and makes them smell amazing. Not spam. Fact.

Check it out: www.cajunclean.com/
My apologies for not being around in the last few weeks. I have a solid reason, though. I have been working steadily for Type Illy Press to finish up the latest installment of the Southside Nefertiti saga. I am very much excited for this book and will soon post updates regarding it's publication. More info on the book here: www.typeillypress.com/

I am currently back to making my comic, Elmira Stagg: Convict. I'll be posting my progress from that soon.

I now have my very own Tumblr page! I'm quite excited!

Please check it out: strickart.tumblr.com/

I have some photos from the recent convention and gallery shows there.


Also, if you're into the whole blog thing, there's (stricksketch) stricksketch.blogspot.com/ It's mostly reposts from DA right now, but I do plan on throwing in exclusive odd sketches here and there.

If you have an account on either of those sites, give me a holla and I'll probably follow you. : )

To those of you who are in my general proximity, I am very excited to announce that I will be participating in The Lewy Physical Therapy Spring Art Show 2012!

The show is Thursday April 12th from 6 to 9pm. It's a benefit for "Dreams Come True," a local charity which helps terminally ill children in South Louisiana.

I'll be sharing the space with several incredible local artists. Quite humbling. There will be prints & comics for sale and I may do some sketches specifically for the show. These guys are really cool and were even nice enough to put a blurb about me in the gallery of their facebook page(!)

I hope some of you can make it.
