 Jimmy Giegerich has been coming through for SD for 2 years now. I discovered his stuff on Robert Goodwin’s now defunct “covered’ bog (along with Tom Neely, Nikki Burch and Ron McVicar) and of course fell under the spell of his cartooning right away. His stuff is so great, reading as compelling individual drawings, as a total cohesive page, and as a strong graphic  design. Step back from this page and walk across the room and you can still read it. How he’s able to be so detailed but somehow also retain the simplicity and readability of Charles M Schulz is beyond me. Fun and ugly and hard edged all at once, he is a serious cartooning phenomenon. He lives here http://jgillustration.tumblr.com.
All week I Will be posting new pages from among the 72 page long Suspect Device Three, which is available now for pre-order form my web-storehttp://joshbayerart.blogspot.com.  copies will be mailed out no later than April 2nd.
The Suspect Device project is now a year and half into it’s publication, and  already 250 pages of work by an assortment of established and newby cartooning superstars have seen print. 
The concept is simple, involving collage. I send artists random unrelated photop-copies of old comics by important cartoonists in the mail. I tell them to pick 2 frames,  make up stories that place the old frames in new narratives. Then they draw the story and ink them and send me jpgs.  
It’s Sort of like that shitty duets album that people llke Bono did with Sinatra in the late 90’s except  computers are not used to sync up the old with the new, just glue and ink.

Check out my piece in the new Suspect Device coming out!  CHECK OUT THIS FLEX!!!
