Photos from the first Jeremy Bastian signing, November 20th, 2010

All the way back in 2010, “The Rogues Gallery” at Challengers Comics in Chicago was yet to be the award-winning exhibition space it has become, and the drywall dust was barely settled when they kindly opened their brand-new addition to Mister Jeremy Bastian to show off his artwork as he signed copies of the freshly printed Cursed Pirate Girl collected edition from Olympian Publishing.  (As in, literally- in some photos you can see the unpatched drywall from where they knocked out the wall to expand their space!  THAT’S how new this room was!!!)

Transmission Atelier blew pages of Jeremy’s art up to MASSIVE sizes, making the magic of Jeremy’s details come to life in a way impossible at their true scale.

Thanks so much to everyone who came to the signing and JEREMY’S FIRST SOLO ART EXHIBITION!  It only took a year and a half for me to post these, that’s about as long as it takes Jeremy to do an issue of Cursed Pirate Girl!
