Time to Ketchup!

I've been a little amiss in keeping y'all informed of the latest developments in the Glentastic world of Glen Mullaly Illustration... so here's a quick recap -


A fine selection of greeting cards are now available over at my online store. Stock up now!


Two new prints (in two sizes each, don't ya know!) to hang on your wall, ceiling, floor, etc are also now at the Glen Mullaly Illustration shop.


 I had a great time at the TD Art Gallery Paint-In in Victoria BC on July the 19th. I was really nice to meet the hundreds of folks who stopped by my artist's area to say hi, ask questions, peruse my work, pick up free coloring pages for the kids (or not for the kids, that's okay too) and even buy an item or two. Thanks everyone - see you there next year!

Contest! Contest! CONTEST!...



To commemorate the release of the first two books in the 25th anniversary editions of Bruce Coville's best selling (million-selling, in fact!) "My Teacher" series of YA books (aimed at kids in grades 3-7, or those with a kid-like imagination!) I'm giving away one copy each of the brand-new, fancy-shmancy hardcover versions to one lucky winner (that's two books in total).



Why, you ask, am I doing such an awesomely awesome thing?...
#1: 'Cause I'm a swell guy (if I do say so myself).
#2: Because I was happy to have designed, illustrated and lettered the wraparound covers for these wonderful books for the fine folks at Aladdin/Simon & Schuster. Many thanks to Jessica Handelman and the rest of the staff for making this contest possible!
...and C: Because I received my copies of the books in the mail today and want to share them with all of you. And by "all of you" I mean one lucky winner.
So all you have to do to be entered in the contest is head on over to the Glen Mullaly Illustration page on Facebook and "like"both the page and the contest post!* One lucky contestant will be chosen at random from all those eligible at 9pm Pacific time / 12 midnight Eastern time on Friday July 11th to win the two books. Contest is open to anyone worldwide who is not an employee of S&S or a family member of your's truly.
Good luck!
* If you're one of the smart ones who haven't succumbed to Facebook and would like to enter just leave a comment here on this post. Make sure it's not anonymous though, I want to know who to send the books to if you win!

Moss Street Paint In Preview #1



Just a reminder for those in the Victoria area on July the 19th - I'll be demonstrating my working methods, showing my art and selling prints, original artwork and more at the 27th annual TD Art Gallery Paint In from 11am to 4:30 pm. 180 visual artists will be doing the same along the 2 kms of Moss Street in Victoria from the Art Gallery to the Dallas Rd waterfront. 

My area will be a block or two up from Dallas Rd side - I hope to see you there! 

In the meantime I'll be previewing the new art, publications, and more (greeting cards, etc) here over the next 20 days that will be on display and sale for the first time at the Paint In. Today's post features some brand new original art cards - small, 2.5" x 3.5" original gouache paintings on illustration board at an affordable price.

Inspired by the Dark Horse Comics Star Wars Omnibus: Wild Space Vols 1 and 2 reprints of my kids comics work with Ken Steacy (in bookstores now!) these have Star Wars themes including preproduction prototype villains, and Cantina aliens. More to come in both these sets, plus a third SW set as well.

New Books!


I'm pleased to announce that the first two books (of four) in the 25th anniversary editions of the million-selling youth series "My Teacher is an Alien" went on sale  last week in hardcover. I designed, illustrated and hand-lettered the four wraparound covers for the fine folks at Aladdin (a division of Simon and Schuster) and look forward to the final two books when they're released in September. Ask for them at you favorite bookstore or online! (Box set version pictured above)

Star Wars!


Hey... did you know that Star Wars Omnibus: Wild Tales Vol. 2 is in better book and comic books stores (and as a Kindle eBook and through online booksellers, of course) now?! 



Thanks to my pal, Schuster award-winning comic book artist Ken Steacy, I co-pencilled, co-inked, and assisted in the coloring of 7 of the 8 comic book vignettes that make up the "Podracing Tales" section of this great new trade paperback!


As a Star Wars fan from way back in '77 it was fun to be able to work on these comics, alsong with the others we did together (published in Star Wars Omnibus: Wild Space Vol. 1, out now as well!) and nearly a dozen Star Wars children's books for various publishers that came out in late 1990s. 



If you or your kids are Star Wars fans be sure to check out these great compendiums of hard-to-find Star Wars comics!
