"Covers" paintings blog

I have a new additional project, a blog documenting my 450+ "Covers" artworks created from 2001 until 2015. These are paintings or drawings in oil, acrylic and ink on paper, canvas or board in various sizes, but usually small (about A4-A3). They recognizably utilize the structure of comic-book covers, or Show-Card lettering posters, with title, bold lettering, price, date, numbering, image and so on. They usually have been usually exhibited in groups, as installations and as "footnotes" to my large painting-installations. I will be trying to post one every couple days, thus the complete group will take me about 2 years.

Die "Covers"-Werke sind Gemälde in verschiedenen Formaten, welche die Sichtstruktur der Comic-Heft-Titelseiten und Show-Card Schriftmalerei verwenden.

The Gene Colan Jam Comic 2003

Here is a pdf of the "jam" comic a group of Colan fans, artists and writers both professional and amateur, made for Gene and Adrienne Colan back in 2003. Each team did one to three pages using characters and concepts connected to the famed artist Gene Colan, leaving their section with a cliff hanger. And then emailed it off. The next team had to pick it up and run with it, doing the same. We also added extras lik fake house ads, a letters col and so on. It took almost 2 years. we then send the final version and all the original art to Gene and Adrienne, who were delighted I am happy to say and called each of us. It was a joy to be a part of.
