Some sort of vague scrapbook of ideas, internet rubbish & things Ben Templesmith finds somewhat amusing. For real site, check out www.templesmith.com
Ben Templesmith is:
Australian. In America. Writer, artist, rider of the Squid. Made career out of Werewolf sodomy and tranny Leprechauns. Eats babies.
BOOTH 1131, find me half way up the back, between the A and B entrances of the con.
It’ll be my last. ( Short of a really, really good reason to do it again and having someone fly me out, out of desperation )
SDCC has become something else. It’s huge, it’s not about comics much, it’s crowded & full of status obsessed hollywood industry type things. It’s not the personal thing it once was. You barely get to say hi to friends. It makes the idea of just chilling out and getting some work done, no stress from the travel, the hangovers, the lack of sleep… very enticing.
BUT… since I could get half a booth with a friend, I’LL BE THERE! One last time.
I’ve not been to California this year. I won’t be again, either. ( Sorry, Madrid & Malta are calling me instead ) This will be your one chance to see me, get something signed or hear the news about what is to come. ( And boy, there is some stuff to come! )
I’ll be debuting a bunch of things at the con.
The LAST IMAGE I WILL EVER DO, outside of original art/commissions… for 30 DAYS OF NIGHT. This is me revisiting, one last time, the thing that started my career, ten years on. Only 50 ever to be made. Each one, hand painted with the BLOOD. ( hence no blood in the image yet ) 11x17, embossed, $50 bucks til stocks last.
MISSED ME. The second Zombie hand painted print, after DEAD SUN. ( Of which I’ll have the last with me too, reserved just for SDCC ). Again hand painted blood, limited to 50 prints, embossed, same price as the last, 11x17 $50.
SQUIDQUEEN 1. The lady herself. stuck between two worlds, of sexy butts & tentacles…Embossed, hand painted blue/green tentacles, limited to 50 prints. $75 while stocks last of my convention supply.
SNEAKY BEERS. Yes, I’ve done a special print, JUST for Ben McCool, where we’ll both finish the image WITH GUINNESS. 25 prints only. Definitely SDCC only. While the beer lasts… Get them at my booth or via Ben, at IMAGE COMICS, when we sign, Saturday, 2-3pm. Or possibly at the Gaslamp Hilton Bar each night!
A fancy set of 5 zombie postcards… yes, I’m on a zombie kick lately… leading up to something big a little further down the road…
