ART² Publishing - The Blog


May 5th, 2009

This coming weekend, the Toronto Comics Art Festival (TCAF) will be in full force at the Toronto Reference Library, in Ontario, Canada.  This show is hosted by some wonderful people and boasts an incredibly talented and generous lineup of comic artists, designers, illustrators and more.  We are very proud to say that Joe Bluhm will be there again, as he was an artist-favorite last year with his book, REJECTS, and will now be drawing caricatures and selling all of the Art Squared line of books!

Oh yeah…  and in case you were wondering, TCAF IS FREE!

Bluhm @ New York Comic Con

February 6th, 2009

Joe Bluhm will be present at booth 2341 this weekend at the Jacob Javitz center for New York Comic Con.  Drop by and say hello, and maybe pick up one of the many books he’s offering (including NYCC’s limited and exclusive advance copies of Bluhm’s new book, Sketch Infectus), or have your caricature drawn!

We’d also like to thank all the wonderful fans and artists who pre-ordered Bluhm’s new book.  More books were ordered than expected, and we really appreciate it.  That being said, we are still offering a pre-order period until the shipment of books arrive in about two weeks, so you still have time to reserve your copy early.  Joe has even promised to include a little gift (art print?) in each shipment even if you missed the “special” deadline.

Sketch Infectus Pre-Order Special!

January 23rd, 2009

Anyone who pre-orders Sketch Infectus by February 5th will get an original sketch.  And by sketch, I don’t mean I’ll draw a little 5 second scribble… I mean I’ll actually be cutting out the sketches from these and other sketchbooks and giving them to you!  You might get something IN the book and you might get something else! Your sketch might have a doodle on the back.  Who knows!

So get your copy before the deadline to get your little piece of the sketchbooks, and don’t forget to tell your friends!  :^)
