Genghis Con ... and New Look for E.G.G.


Which brings me to the next topic ... I've decided to move forward in a vastly different direction with E.G.G. The artwork is no longer going to be in an idea of making it as "Sunday Comic Strip" as I had in the past. It will still be stark Black and White and it will be familiar and have cartoon aspects ... but there will be much more of a realistic feel to the work. It feels more mature and I think it adds to the overall idea of the piece. I hope you all like it! Just to show you what the direction is ... I am going to slip you the "Speculative" cover art and finished "Speculative" cover. Don't forget to click the link under them for a higher res look!





Thanks Guys... Let me know what ya think ...

FANTASTICON is this coming Sunday, Nov. 8th, @the Emerald Theatre in Mt. Clemens, MI.(near Detroit) That's this weekend folks! The E.G.G. crew will be there! The Show starts at 11:00a.m. and ends at 5:00p.m. We want to see all of our friends at the event! Tickets are only $5.00 at the door!


Other Artists Work I've Acquired ...

I was inspired to do this post by David Petersen. He posted art that he'd gotten from people on his blog ... which you can see HERE.

I liked the post and decided to do one of my own. The First images I'm going to post are going to be art done by Jonathon Gordon. He's become a great friend of mine. We hang out almost every Tuesday for a Movie/Draw day. (sometimes more movie that draw ... shhhh!) Anyway, the two pieces I'm going to share with you were done by Jon to showcase his talent for Commission work at Mid-Ohio Con. He was kind enough, at the end of the weekend to give them to me. So, I'm very happy to have them!

Next is Jay Jacot. He's become a great friend too, in fact all of the people I've chose to post are good friends and L.A.D.D.ies. When I was putting together my first full size comic E.G.G. "The Trouble With Dames", Jacot was the guy who gave me the most support and inspiration for the work. He did one of the pin-ups for the back of it and then he presented me with the original line work. So here the line work is ...

Third ... is done by Dean Stahl. I just love what Dean has done with his work. He has definately pushed himself to become a very good artist in the comic medium. His style is a great throw back to the 70-80's style of Marvel/DC before the whole Image boom hit. I love it. I commissioned Dean to do a piece for my wife for her birthday. This is that piece. Thanks Dean! Great Job! She loves it!

Lastly, is a piece done by Ryan Claytor. This is a super special piece that Ryan drew into my wifes Birthday/Halloween card. It is of him and his significant other, Candace, all dressed up in their Halloween Costumes!

Cartoon - Cartoon!

So, I've been reading cartooning books lately ... mostly books written by Chris Hart. Anyway, I want to do more cartoony stuff and want to be able to inject that into my E.G.G. work even more than previously in that work. Make it look even more exaggerated and fun! So, anywho ... here's my cartoony Superman!

Mouse Guard!

So, I'm a huge fan of David Petersen and what he does as far as his work. Mouse guard is gorgeous ... and the stories are A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! Besides that, the man is a very cool and down to Earth guy! I've had the great chance to speak with him on many occassions. Being from the same state as him is in my favour ... so I submit to you my Mouse Guard picture! ...

New but Old ... SALE!

So, This is an old piece of art that I shared on the E.G.G. blogger a long time ago. I love this piece because I absolutely love Ross Campbell's style and I wanted to do a piece that would be his character Cleo if she would be Wonder Woman. This is what I came up with.


This piece is done on 11X14 Bristol Vellum (100 lb.)paper. I am selling it for $100.00 (plus shipping and handling) and there are zero prints and no other copies of it any where else. If you are interested in purchasing it send me an email at robertcforest@hotmail.com

You can find Ross Campbell on line at:

I'd like to start off by thanking the guys from L.A.D.D. who came with me Jonathan D. Gordon, Dean Stahl, Jay Jacot, and Ryan Claytor for helping to make the trip to Columbus and back a far more pleasurable experience than it would have been without them. I'd also like to comment that I missed having Joshua D. Boeringa along side of me at the booth. E.G.G. is just as much yours as it is mine and you were notably missed. Looking forward to "Con-ing" with you in the future!

So, Mid-Ohio Con was a riot fest! I had so much fun and met so many wonderful people, special thanks to Kevin Wolf from "PANGAEA" fame and his lovely assistant Jamie Pitt who helped to make the day more fun and easier to pass the time, same goes for Brett Wood and Eric Rampson from "The Silver Bullet" and Ronin Studios... these were two of the coolest guys a man could have near him at a booth. And last but certainly not least the talented crew at Mutant Cactus : Robert Gant, Derek Watson, and Danny Cooper. It was great sitting next to you guys... great work you guys do and a lovely bunch of individuals.

I had a lot of success with the show and thanks to all the people who stopped by the E.G.G. booth to show your support to our humble little Food Noir world and view my art. Also thanks to those who had me do sketches ... the Alfred E. Newman and Yoda were great fun! Having said all of that, it was nice to wake up in my bed at home this morning with my wife and our rabbits. It's been a good day of relaxation and seeing "Zombieland" on the big screen.

-Until next time ... Oh, right ... and I am pretty sure that Joshua D. Boeringa and myself are going to be making an appearance at Fantasticon in the Emerald Theatre, 31 N. Walnut, Mt. Clemens, MI 48043 on Sunday Nov. 8th. Doors open at 11a.m. and it ends at 5p.m. Admission is $5.00. I hope to see a bunch of people out there at the show that day!

-Really done now ...

New Take On Old Designs ...

I'm a tattoo fan, (obviously) so I've had an itch lately to reinvent some classic tattoo art. Below you will see what I've done today. I hope you all enjoy the work as much as I.





You can look forward to similar things in the future!
