The word is as follows!
Gallery 33 will soon be hosting multiple Eisner nominee and “one-man-comic-creating-machine” Brandon Graham, in an “open-studio” style exhibition and celebrating the world premiere of his new PictureBox book: Walrus. A limited number of signed copies of the book are available at the gallery before the official book launch end of June. Brandon will be in the space interacting with visitors, immediately putting what he creates on the gallery’s walls and windows.
Next to the Walrus book Brandon will have drawings and pages for sale and we will also have a selection of his other recent books and exclusive merch available to purchase.
The show will run from June 12th till July 5th at Gallery 33, Pazzanistraat 33, 1014 DB, Westergasfabriek, Amsterdam.
Public book launch event and show opening: June 14, 17:30 – 22:00

Mat Brinkman returns to the presses with Heads Collider, a 48 page exploration of drawing and color. For this one Brinkman drew heads on a sheet of rice paper, using the bleed through on the following pages as the basis of new drawings. So each page in this fine tome uses 3 drawings for each page — before, during, and after phases. The effect is like pulsing animation in print. This is a limited edition of 1000 copies co-published with the fine Le Dernier Cri of Marseilles.

Summer has arrived, and with it a slew of coverage for various PictureBox releases.
Let’s start it off with Gengoroh Tagame at the Huffington Post and Hazlitt. Both excellent interviews with the artist. And of course now until June 15 Tagame is exhibiting original art at Shoot the Lobster, NYC.

Come on out from 7 to 9 pm and celebrate the release with C.F.
In 2012 C.F. began to produce a series of more than a dozen mini-comics, which he distributed via Twitter. Each mini-comic offered a take on, and expansion upon, a classic comic strip genre-from crime and sci-fi to punk and sex-all of them infused throughout by C.F.’s absurdist humor and loose improvisatory drawing. Those comics, along with unpublished art and photos, are collected here.

Unfortunately we have to cancel all North American Blutch events due to passport difficulties: McNally Jackson, Bergen St. Comics, and TCAF.
We hope to reschedule but it’s uncertain. Apologies to all. The Comics Reporter has the story.

Lots of talking for PBox artists.
-Here’s Craig Thompson interviewing Blutch over at Boing Boing. This is a great interview — the best way to get to know Blutch, whose book So Long, Silver Screen, is out now. He’ll be here in North America soon enough!
-Jonny Negron is interviewed over here. Nice one.
This blog is going to take you to school. You will learn about all things PictureBox: old dudes; obscure design; good painting; bad painting; dogs; annoying product endorsements. And so forth. All from me, Dan Nadel, your PictureBox host.
