OCTOBER FIRST THURSDAY EVENTS

PROPHET BOOK RELEASE & ART EXHIBIT by FAREL DALRYMPLE
Location: Floating World Comics, 400 NW Couch St, Portland OR
Date: Thursday, October 4, 2012
Time: 6-10pm

The new Prophet series by Brandon Graham has been one of the most exciting comics in the past year. The epic sci-fi series highlights Brandon's cosmos-building concepts as well as artwork from a team of awesome artists including Simon Roy, Giannis Milonogiannis, Farel Dalrymple, and Brandon Graham himself. October 4th, we will display original artwork from the latest issue, Prophet #29 and celebrate the book release with artist, Farel Dalrymple and colorist, Joseph Bergin III.

Farel's new comic It Will All Hurt is updated regularly on the Study Group Comics website. He is currently working on a new original graphic novel called The Wrenchies, which will be published by First Second books.

RAG DOLL BLUES: PARTS AND PIECES EXHIBIT by JOHN C. WORSLEY III
Location: Sequential Art Gallery + Studio, 328 NW Broadway #113, Portland OR 97209
Date: Thursday, October 4, 2012
Time: 6-10pm

Sequential Art Gallery welcomes back digital painter John C. Worsley, and his latest exhibit, "Rag Doll Blues: Parts and Pieces". The exhibit is a sequential narrative based on the deconstructed final art for "Rag Doll Blues", the newest album by Portland band Dead When I Found Her. The exhibit opens on First Thursday, October 4th, with an artist's reception from 6pm-10pm.

As Worsley explains, "A digital painting can be comprised of dozens of layers." Worsley has rearranged the art for the album into tradi tional comic book panels and added DWIFH lyrics as text. "For this series, the panels consist of visible and invisible layers alike taken from the original work and pushed out past the bounds of the finished frame." Worsley likens the finished result unto a fevered dream rather than a traditional comic.

John C. Worsley divides his time between professional video game design and programming, independent digital illustration, and electronic music. "Rag Doll Blues: Parts and Pieces" will close on Saturday, October 27th, at 5pm.
