I’ve recently installed a mural at Greenhill Gallery in Greensboro, NC. Its part of the ANIMATED! exhibit that will be up from September 6 – November 9. Here’s a stop-motion video of the work in progress.

Here’s an image I made for a portfolio organized by Joe Lupo at West Virginia University. The portfolio, NOT Approved By The Comics Code Authority, included work by 9 artists who are influenced by comics.

Homer Johnson, linocut, 2012

This summer I made a mural using vertical screen printing techniques I recently learned from my friend Stefan Hoffmann. The content of the mural was appropriated from images in the Edwin and Terry Murray Comic Book Collection found in the Rare Book, Manuscript, and Special Collections Library at Duke (+ from a Steve Ditko monograph and Love and Rockets, New Stories No. 1 by the Hernandez brothers). In the past four years I’ve been using the Murray Collection as a teaching tool and resource for my Art of the Comic Book and Zines class. It’s an amazing resource with over 75,000 comics! I really enjoyed making the mural and plan to make more in the future using some of my original stuff. For more info on vertical screen printing go to: www.verticalscreenprinting.com

Where to buy linoleum

The best place to buy linoleum is Dick Blick. Choose from a variety of pre-cut sizes or by the role. Battleship Gray is best.
