Hi Everyone,

Opening day for the new STAR WARS movie! Yay! I’ve been looking forward to 10:30 p.m. tonight for a long time. This weekend I will be doing a STAR WARS signing for DREAMLAND COMICS at STRATFORD SQUARE MALL in BLOOMINGDALE, IL. Here’s a link to their address and phone #: https://dreamlandcomics.com. This is the comic book shop I patronize here in Illinois.

And now for my other news — I’ve launched an exclusive line of greeting cards through a Logica3.com company called SAVE A TREE CARDS.com in West Dundee, IL near where I live. Here’s the link — https://holiday.saveatreecards.com — currently they are solely digital cards, but recycled, paper-based cards are forthcoming. I want to extend a special thanks to Lisa Page Domwbrowski and Larry Dombrowski for giving me this opportunity to share my personal art. Here’s a link to that press release: http://www.prweb.com/releases/2017/12/prweb15014023.htm 

This new line of Dorman greeting cards are a departure from my typical licensed commercial work that you are familiar with, but I really enjoy painting non-licensed art. Also on their site are links to the art tutorial videos I created of me painting their greeting card designs. They’ve shrunk them down to 12 and six minutes, so if you don’t want to sit through the 2-hour versions, these are truncated. Here’s an example of the art you’ll see me painting:

Dear Friends,

As I write this, the TV is confirming the rumored death of Qaddafi and showing the graphic Al Jazeera footage. I congratulate the Libyan freedom fighters on this new chapter in their lives.

I feel it’s my personal responsibility as a comic book artist to help raise awareness for other amazing talent in the industry. Today I want to make you aware of Leinil Yu if you are not already. I bought  the comic SUPERIOR” by Mark Millar and Leinil Yu yesterday (see image below) during my weekly trek to Dreamland Comics in Schaumburg, IL:

LEINIL YU ART ON COVER OF SUPERIOR COMIC

In my opinion as an artist and also an art director, I find Leinil Yu  to be one of the best comic book artists working in the industry today. His style is dynamic, he’s a great visual storyteller, and he renders every image with so much style. Other pieces he’s worked on (according to the back cover) include Secret Invasion, New Avengers and Superman: Birthright. I hope you check out his work and it brings you as much joy as it does me.

In other news, my good friend Charlie Athanas called me last night and invited me to join him for a really fun electronica concert tomorrow night – Amon Tobin – and I’m really looking forward to it. Here’s a link to Amon Tobin’s concert sampling, to give you a feel for his work: http://bit.ly/roDni4 

Below is an image from last Monday night during the fund-raiser for Chicago’s best horror theater group, WildClaw Theater, which was a lot of fun.

And here’s a nice mini-review of my book “ROLLING THUNDER: THE ART OF DAVE DORMAN” (IDW Publishing/Desperado Publishing) by Alina Bradford: http://bit.ly/pmUNk6

If any of you reading has a young child, I recommend checking out the movie “Real Steel” with Hugh Jackman. I took my 6 year old this past weekend and we both really enjoyed it. Next up, we’re looking forward to getting the Captain America movie, coming out soon on DVD, to add to our collection because we both loved it in the theater.

Reminder: My Podcast through Michael Mennenga and Babylon 5 actor/producer Jeffrey Willerth’s Farpoint Media is http://itscomicbookday.com (there are a lot more episodes, but I’m waiting for the producer to catch up on edits) – it’s free on iTunes.
