Hi Everybody,

I hope to see many of you this weekend at C2E2 in Chicago; I’ll be at Table E-1 in Artists Alley!

Before I forget to mention this, if you’re not already watching HAP & LEONARD on the Sundance Channel (Season 1 is on Netflix), please check it out. My author friend Joe R. Lansdale wrote this really fun, pulpy series of books, all of which I’ve read, and he is executive producer on the show. It’s pure genius in its acting, casting and execution. I hope it never ends. (Joe’s steampunk series is really fun, too. Can you tell I’m his biggest fan?)

If you haven’t heard already, I’ve been doing live paintings on Facebook Live. I plan to expand this to Twitter’s Periscope and YouTube eventually, but here is a link to my most popular one so far, of me painting Darth Maul. According to Facebook, it has gotten 56,633 cumulative views so far! The visitor stamp you see at the bottom is how many folks were watching it when I actually did it live. I am honored by your time and attention. (If only I had 50 cents for everyone who watched it!)

SOCIAL MEDIA FEEDBACK: With social media, I’m always listening. Sometimes the feedback is rather unpleasant, like this exchange below. That being said, if I’ve ever come across as unpleasant to any of you, I want to take this opportunity to apologize to you, as I did to these gentlemen. From what I gather from their latter remarks, these two gents haven’t ever actually personally interacted with me, but if this is the current zeitgeist on me, I’d like to nip it in the bud. Shows are exhausting and physically taxing, and you may see my occasional grimace, especially with my current sciatica and neuropathy issues, but I don’t ever want any of you to feel like I don’t want you to approach me or that I don’t value your friendship, feedback and encounters, because I do. Without your feedback, good or bad, my work doesn’t feel complete. You all help me to “close the loop.”

Some disgruntled observers.

Dear Friends,

Today is the day your local comic book retailer starts carrying the IDW book THE OTHER DEAD (IDW), created by my friends Kevin Eastman (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles/Heavy Metal Magazine), Digger T Mesch, creator of Minimates and Art Asylum (Agent 88) and Joshua Ortega (Gears of War). As you know, I did the “Obama Nation” 1:10 variant cover, which is already selling up on eBay, so I recommend you buy it up as soon as you can and get it signed by our crew.

To celebrate the launch of THE OTHER DEAD, I am offering a strictly limited edition giclee print–limited to 57–of this controversial artwork. This archival print features the full art of this stunning portrait, unencumbered by logo or other printing. I am producing these prints directly out of my studio, so the quality of the end product is personally overseen by me.

Buy it here, now: http://www.davedorman.com/obamanation.shtml
