By Crom! is my joke-a-panel autobiographical comic featuring life advice and spiritual guidance from Conan the Barbarian. It ran from January 2012 to May 2014, and is collected in two books, The Collected By Crom! and Full Colour Cromulence. You can read the archives on WealdComics.com, and grab the books in print and in PDF.

By Crom! will be tabling with Weald Comics at TCAF, VanCAF, TAAFI and possibly FanExpo Toronto!

Rachel Kahn’s By Crom! series isn’t only funny, though it is funny, it is also charming and comforting and challenging, panel by panel, in great ways. Get thee this comic.

Edward Curtis - The North American Indian

In 1906, J. P. Morgan provided Curtis with $75,000 to produce a series on the North American Indian. The work was to be in 20 volumes with 1,500 photographs.

Morgan’s funds were to be disbursed over five years and were earmarked to support only fieldwork for the books, not for writing, editing, or production of the volumes. Curtis himself would receive no salary for the project, which was to last more than 20 years. 

Curtis’s goal was not just to photograph, but to document, as much American Indian (Native American) traditional life as possible before it disappeared.

He wrote in the introduction to his first volume in 1907:

The information that is to be gathered…respecting the mode of life of one of the great races of mankind, must be collected at once or the opportunity will be lost. 

Curtis made over 10,000 wax cylinder recordings of Indian language and music.

He took over 40,000 photographic images from over 80 tribes.

He recorded tribal lore and history, and he described traditional foods, housing, garments, recreation, ceremonies, and funeral customs.

He wrote biographical sketches of tribal leaders, and his material, in most cases, is the only written recorded history although there is still a rich oral tradition that documents history.”

2. Two Whistles, Apsaroke

3. Dancing to Restore an Eclipsed Moon

4. Tobadzischini

5. Haschogan 

6. Haschezhini

7. Bear Bull - Blackfoot

8. Red Cloud

9. Apache Gaun

10. Offering to the Sun - San Ildefonso

What a picture of Indian character this affords: a mere infant starting out alone into the fastnesses of the mountain wilds, to commune with the spirits of the infinite, a tiny child sitting through the night on a lonely mountain-top, reaching out its infant’s hands to God! On distant and near-by hills howl the coyote and the wolf. In the valleys and on the mountain side prowl and stalk all manner of animals. Yet alone by the little fire sits the child listening to the mysterious voices of the night.

—Edward Curtis

“Night-Blooming”
Acrylic and gouache on Rives BFK
8.25” x 10.5”

Here’s my piece for this year’s “Suggestivism” show, curated by Nathan Spoor and hosted this time by Copro Gallery in Santa Monica, CA. The show opens August 16th, from 8:30-11pm and runs till September 6th.

Since the show is subtitled “Chronology,” I wanted to play around with the idea of a time shift and decided to have a seemingly sun bleached daytime scene bordering a nighttime scene, with the moonflowers from the border in full bloom.

Hope you can make it to the show to see the piece in person along with the incredible work by the other artists! Check out that line-up!
