Artist Bio: Richard Moore

I figured since I gave you all Chris Ivy's personal bio a few days ago, that it would probably be a good idea to give you Richard Moore's, as well. This was already made public when I was still with Space Goat Fine Arts (and it is where the bulk of the info is coming from), but with a new blog and new start it just makes sense to put it here, too. So, for those who've seen it before, you'll be getting a nice sense of deja vu. For those who haven't seen it before, please do enjoy. And away we go:

"California-born Richard Moore grew up not so much wanting to be an artist as simply feeling compelled to draw. Paper, textbooks, desktops--any flat surface was fair game. Not knowing exactly how to go about making money with his art, Richard focused obsessively on improving his fine art skills, then segued into comics with the publication of titles such as Far West and Deja Vu through Antarctic Press and Radio Comix. Richard has spent the past several years writing and illustrating the indie hit Boneyard (cover art from the series is shown at the left) from NBM Publishing."

And what does the future hold for Richard? The much desired (and much delayed) final issue of Boneyard will be out in a few months, before going on hiatus. There is also the concluding issues to the Fire & Brimstone and Far West: Bad Mojo mini-series, which are to be published by Antarctic Press. Also, some of his past works, which have not been reprinted anywhere else will finally be getting such treatment (the what, where and when, I cannot say right now). Finally, Richard is also hard at work on a children's book, which I will talk more about when more info can be given. So, there will be no shortage of Moore in 2009. In fact, expect lots of big things, both this year and beyond, from this extremely talented creative force.

That's all for now. Tomorrow I will announce the "secret news" I hinted at yesterday. And no, it's not an April Fools joke, either. Until next time, peace out!

Hey everyone! I'm back again, with more exciting news for you. As if the addition of Chris Ivy to our roster wasn't cool enough, I just got in a nice selection of new art from Richard Moore, as well.

In this batch we have a couple of covers, one from a published adult series and the other an unpublished sketchbook cover, a great new pin up piece, that is to be published shortly (you'll like this if you are a fan of Boneyard or the series Hack/Slash), which is shown on the left, and best of all, the entire run of art from issue #4 of Richard's mini-series Fire and Brimstone! So, there's lots to see here. This, of course, is on top of all the great art I just added from Chris Ivy a couple days ago. You really have no excuses for not placing an order, with so much awesome art available to you. So, what are you waiting for? Consider this your engraved invitation!

And stay tuned here, as I have still more exciting news for you in a couple of days. Until then, peace out!


Artist Bio: Chris Ivy

Well, as promised, here is a quick little artist's bio on Sequential Treasures newest resident, Chris Ivy. And away we go...

"Chris Ivy's career in comics started with a phone call from legend Don Perlin just two days before he graduation from art college in 1987. He asked if Chris was interested in a staff job at Marvel in 1987, working under Perlin himself and John Romita in Marvel’s Art Corrections dept. Chris learned more from the both of them in the next 12 months then in any of his schooling about the art of comics. After a short stint in the same year as Joe Rubenstein's inking assistant, he began his own lucrative freelance career on the lowest rung of the ladder—pencilling, coloring and (mostly) inking for Marvel—starting on a couple of the New Universe titles, Remo Williams: Destroyer and Wolf Pack. He eventually gained enough trust from editors there to expand to higher-selling books (Avengers, Marvel Comics Presents, Alpha Flight, Punisher, Spider-Man, Fantastic Four, Ghost Rider, Moon Knight, Blade, Cage, Wolverine and plenty others), while working with some of the best talent in the business. In “Forrest Gump” fashion—he seemed to meet and befriend key figures in the industry (Jim Lee, Jim Valentino, Erik Larsen, Rob Liefeld, Whilce Portacio, to name a few) over the next several years that led him to more high-profile work on titles at Image (Shadowhawk, Wildstorm Swimsuit issue, Supreme, Phantom Force, Union), Valiant-Voyager/Acclaim (Bloodshot, H.A.R.D. Corps), DC (Anima, Superman, Flash, Beast Boy, Sovereign Seven, JLA) and Dark Horse (Star Wars-Bounty Hunters: Kenix Kil , Aliens v. Predator: Xenogenesis, Aliens v. Predator v. Terminator, Planet of the Apes). Truly, Chris was one of the most prolific artist/inkers within the comic industry throughout the late 80's and well into the 90's!"

Of course, those days are long gone and things have changed very much since then. With the crushing industry-wide implosion through the last half of the 90’s and early 2000’s, work has been much harder to come by. Lately, most of his time is spent looking for any and all illustration work, making some of the convention circuit, as well as doing private comic-related commission work through places like ComicArtFans.com and eBay. And now, selling his original pages through Sequential Treasures: Comic Art Sales can be added to that list.

So, make sure to check out the art we currently have on hand from Chris. More will be on the way very soon. Don't miss out. Until later, peace out!


Sequential Treasures hits the "Ivy" league!

Hello, everyone! I have some really exciting new for you all today. As I have been trying relentlessly to add new talent to Sequential Treasures' roster, it has been very tough going. But now, at last, we have stuck something good. So, I am pleased to announce to you all that we are now the exclusive artist rep for artist/inker Chris Ivy!

If you followed comics in the 80's and 90's, especially from Marvel and DC, then you've no doubt seen Chris's inks grace a lot of fine talents, such as Lee Weeks, Ron Garney, James Fry, Ron Lim, Dwayne Turner and many others. And we now have access to his vast vault of original pages. In fact, some of them have just been put up for sale today! So, stop by my art gallery and check out the great new additions from Chris (which includes this great splash page he pencilled from the old Cloak & Dagger series). Expect a nice little bio post about Chris in the very near future.

But things don't stop there, as I will be getting in some more art from Chris fairly soon and he is looking to expand into doing some pin ups of some of comics biggest icons, which will, of course, be available for the buying public. And, as if this isn't enough for you, I will hopefully have some new art by Richard Moore available within the next few days, including some of his interior work from Fire and Brimstone.

So, make sure to count your pennies and place some orders for all this fine artwork that is now available to you. And don't forget to check in here later this week, as I have a very important surprise to relate to you all. Until then, peace out!


Hitting The Shelves: Far West: Bad Mojo #1

Hello again! It's been a while since there was anything new to talk about. I've kept busy trying to obtain new talent to rep for. Nothing has broken so far, but I'm hopeful something will happen on that front soon.

In the meantime, however, it is time to once again let you know about some great new comic work about to hit your local retailer's shop. On sale tomorrow will be Far West: Bad Mojo #1 (of 2)! This is the new mini-series, featuring Richard Moore's awesome elven bounty hunter, is being published through Antarctic Press. This time around hot-tempered, half-native elf Meg and her put-upon partner, Phil the talking bear, are back to pursue their latest quarry through the wild, weird West! But are our two bounty hunters bad enough to survive chasing their target into the aptly named Deadlands? Should be a rip-roaring good time! Make sure to look for the cover image shown here. And, if you just can't wait until tomorrow, you can check out a several page preview of the issue at the Antarctic Press website. Just follow the link provided here.

Also, I will be getting in a new shipment of original art from Richard in the very near future. In it will be art from Boneyard, Fire and Brimstone, plus a few other goodies. So, make sure to keep watch at my art gallery for all the artistic goodness to be found there. More info, as it happens.
