Mini Hiatus

Hey all,
Unfortunately, I have no new illustration for you today. I missed one a couple weeks ago, and yet again I’m out another one. My goal for 2016 was a new illustration for every week of the year. I started working on my creator owned comic last week, and I’ve already found myself falling behind on that. Since completing and launching Bombo The Beast is a much bigger priority than the weekly illos, I’m going to play catch up. Once I’ve got everything back on track, I’ll get begin posting new weekly illustrations and Scam. It kind of sucks, but I’m really excited for this comic. Over 25 years in the making. In the meantime, I will continue to post sketches and old art here and on Instagram.

If you’re not following me on Snapchat (cluepac), please do so for behind the scenes art, work in progress and sneak peeks. You can take a photo of the snapcode below to follow.

Awe, Snappers!

Hey visitors, friends, and all!

I have been sharing photos and videos of new work, work process, and other goodness on Snapchat. “What new work is on deck?” “What’s he listening to in the background while he paints?” “What are Martin and Baxter up to?” You may find ALL the answers here. Maybe.

Interview with Centerstage Chicago

Thanks to Jeff Min for hooking this up.

Growing up on Chicago’s far South Side, illustrator/cartoonist/painter Jose Garibaldi learned early on to appreciate the fine art of comics. Whereas most parents would be quick to dismiss strips as lowbrow art, Garibaldi’s mother welcomed it, making publications like Cracked and Mad Magazine readily available for his young mind to absorb. The choice to embrace the offbeat humor of Cracked and Mad clearly comes across in Garibaldi’s illustrations and it’s what makes his art most endearing.

Deeds is a Teen Heaven spin off that takes place in the same world, only hundreds of years before. Look for a weekly strip starting next week and a comic book mini-series later in the year. Yeah, 2010!
