You have heard me plugging Mark Schultz and my visit to the Netherlands Stripbeurs Breda show coming up this March 6 and 7, along with the debut of our Mark Schultz sketchbook Blue Book. Now, I would like to further promote the exceptional guest list and other special show items I have learned about.
Mike Mignola, Adi Granov, Paul Renaud, Barry Kitson, Minck Oosterveer, Petar Meseldžija, and Geoff West of the Book Palace will also be there! The full guest list is posted at the show website here.
To top things off, there will be a special Hellboy comic exclusive to the show. Mike Mignola did this new cover that has been colored by Dave Stewart.
Paul Renaud will have a portfolio featuring new artwork. He’s doing amazing work on Red Sonja and covers for Marvel, to name a few projects. His website features a gallery, news, interviews and store with sketchbooks and original art for sale. There is also a Paul Renaud Message Board with some good topics worth reading here.
Minck Oosterveer will have a small very limited sketchbook The Unknown Minck Oosterveer. There will only be 111 copies! According to his website, you can have Minck hold a copy for you by contacting him through his website here.
Petar Meseldžija will be at the Uitgeverij Xtra booth for most of the show. He will have his new sketchbook and copies of the Serbian Edition of his The Legend of Steel Bashaw for sale. There will also be a small exhibition of his work, including some Giclee prints and an original painting. He will also spend an hour or two at our Flesk booth.
Another plug for Mark Schultz Blue Book. (I can’t help myself!)
So there you go. A fine list of artists and products all available at Stripbeurs Breda! And be sure to stop by De Stripspecialist when in Breda for the best in comics and books. I’ll post stories and pictures when I return!
