The OOSA Bodega

So I know I promised an announcement about the newest thing OOSA has going on. Due to some technical issues, however, we’re going to have to push the launch back a bit, but I can give you a preview and tell you a little about it.

So what’s the big news? We are launching the Out of Step Arts Bodega soon. This will be an online shop where all of the OOSA artists will have unique print-on-demand T-shirts for sale. The artists will have complete control over all aspects of the design process. They will also be receiving all of the profits after the costs are covered. Alexis Ziritt (who also runs Fistful Apparel) will be at the helm managing production and overseeing quality control, so I know these will be nothing but top-notch. 

Since this is a print-on-demand process, the artists can add new designs to their stores whenever they feel like it and avoid the large up-front costs, color limitations and inventory issues that come with screen printed shirts. It’s a win-win situation for the artists and the fans of their work! 

Once we get all of the bugs worked out, I’ll post a link where you can purchase the shirts. Until then, I’ve posted some previews of designs by Greg Ruth and Alexis Ziritt for you check out and drool over.

More news soon. Promise. 

There are things you do hate, Lord. Perfume-smellin’ things, lacy things, things with curly hair.

A “must see”. Especially if you a fan of Greg Ruth’s work on Steve Niles’ Freaks of the Heartland (Dark Horse Comics).

Steve Niles, creator of 30 Days of Night and Criminal Macabre,  is much loved by everyone in – and out – of comics, and the comics industry is rallying around him, with contributed auction items from Chris Burnham, James Tynion IV, Darick Robertson, Phil Noto, Grek Pak, JM De Matteis, and more.

nilesAs Henry Barajas reported on Sunday, the flash flooding in Austin which caused so much devastation cost Steve and his partner Monica Richards all of their furniture, the majority of their possessions, and ruined their house. Much of the original art was saved, as were their pets – fans of tortoise Gil were relieved to read that he was recovering well after Steve’s daring rescue of him in waist water.

That direct donation link is still live via Paypal - HelpSteveNiles@gmail.com  – and now Steve’s Black Mask Studios protégé Matt Miner has set up some auctions to contribute to the cause as well.

Matt says:

I’ve been through flooding with Hurricane Sandy and it’s absolutely devastating. I hope to be able to help as much as I can. Round 2 auctions will already have goods from Greg Pak, Dean Trippe, JM De Matteis and lots more.

Creators should reach out to me on Twitter (@MattMinerXVX) or through this email address: matt@unpunk.com

Current items include signed Chris Burnham goodies, signed and sketched Planet of the Apes tpbs from Corinna Bechko and Gabriel Hardman, Talon tpb and sketch from James Tynion IV, a Dick Ayers original sketch, signed and exlcusive Liberator goodies from Matt Miner, an NYCC 2013 exclusive signed Five Ghosts Frank Barbiere and cover artist Chris Mooneyham, and a signed Sheltered #1 Image Expo variant from Ed Brisson and Johnnie Christmas.

The second round of auctions will feature some fantastic original 30 Days of Night art donated by the EIC of IDW, and some Darick Robertson, Greg Pak, Dean Trippe, JM De Matteis, and Phil Noto goodies.

Please do spread both links around and donate, or bid, if you can :)

And remember too, that Steve has free comics over at his site for October, because he is awesome.

Greg Ruth has also listed a couple of items on ebay with 100% of the proceeds going to help Steve Niles. Take a look and spread the word.

This was posted over at Tor.com so I thought I’d share it here.

"Enjoy this ten page preview of The Lost Boy, a new graphic novel beautifully illustrated by Greg Ruth, coming from Scholastic on August 27th.

Nate’s not happy about his family moving to a new house in a new town. After all, nobody asked him if he wanted to move in the first place. But when he discovers a tape recorder and note addressed to him under the floorboards of his bedroom, he’s thrust into a dark mystery about a boy who went missing many, many years ago. Now, as strange happenings and weird creatures begin to track Nate, he must partner with Tabitha, a local girl, to find out what they want with him. But time is running out, for a powerful force is gathering strength in the woods at the edge of town, and before long Nate and Tabitha will be forced to confront a terrifying foe and uncover the truth about the Lost Boy.”

Here are some of Greg Ruth’s Classic Monsters he did for his appearance at SDCC. You can see more at his Facebook page.

These 32 or so pieces were all created for the upcoming San Diego Comicon, where I’ll be heading down to promote my latest graphic novel, THE LOST BOY from Scholastic/Graphix. But as most cons are a chance for fans and enthusiasts to come and indulge I thought it’d be fun to try and work up some genre pieces to accomodate that passion. 

Never did a set of work like this before, but boy howdy was it ever fun. Especially the Classic Monsters images- I can assure you I’ll be doing a good deal more of these later. In the mantime, since most of us aren’t able to go to SDCC, I have decided to make these available for sale now as a special preview for everyone who’s been so nice about the previous images earlier this week. Ones unmarked are available, except those indicatedf as already sold. To purchase, please inquire personally for prices and sizes. All images range from about 9x12” to 10x15” give or take. 

Thanks again!
