The newTRADITIONALISTS Art Show and Opening.

Featuring our own Paul Palcko, Kyle Margiotta and Anthony Pedro.
This show has been about two years in the making. I jokingly said a while back that I would love to see a show with these guys and we could call it “The serious side of the PCS.” That thought never went away, I love what Kyle, Paul and Anthony do and I wanted the proper venue to really highlight their talents. Fortune smiled upon me when my good friends over at NicholsBerg Gallery in Chestnut Hill asked if I had any ideas for art shows. Flash forward to right now and I have just sent out about thirty press releases, posted all over the place and am eagerly awaiting the postcard you see above.
The name might have changed but I am honored to be curating what I still think of as the serious side of the Philadelphia Cartoonist Society.
I hope everyone in the group can make it out on May 5th for the opening reception, fittingly scheduled on Free Comic Book Day.
You can find out more about it at the Event page here.

Slugs Are People Too!

Hey all!  This is my first post with the Philly Cartoonists and couldn't think of a better way of introducing myself than sharing this slug boxer.  He starts his day with a good cigar and a punch in the face!

Maple Bacon Rum

Hey y'all, this is my first post on this here blog. I thought I'd throw an image I slapped together in a few hours for a friend's brand of Bacon Maple Rum. Don't look for it in stores though, because they aren't looking to sell it yet, but rather to ingest the glorious nectar inside. They promised me some of the stuff so I naturally said I'd whip a label up. It's a little darker subject matter than I usually do (ripping strips of bacon off of a willing and smiling sow), but what do you expect for a 4 am, 4 hour, done-fer-almost-free, label. (For the record, I realize the ampersand is backwards, but they seemed to like it *shrug*). If you like it, you might like my new website too: Kaminskivision.

Some Awesomeness!

So the wonderful folks over at Kathy Davis are not only carrying my book in their online store they are promoting it as well. Take a look at this e-mail that just went out this week! I love that the design of the book is able to fit right in with the amazing designs over at Kathy Davis Studios. (Props to Joe DiDomenico’s design chops!) Go on over and check out the new products here.
