On September 15th 2009 Labold Manor will officially be evacuated by the Labold Brothers. A lot of really great memories and awesome art stuff was made there. Here we have the last photo taken of the screen printing table before I took it apart and moved it to a new home. Photos of new studio will be posted soon!

September 5th 2009 Gregory Labold Officially had a show at the Square Peg Artery and Salvage store 108 s 20th st Philadelphia Pa, called "Gregory Labold is GOING OUT OF BUSINESS!". Some people went to support the artist and a few others came to eat the amazing food Rachel made for the event. To his knowledge, The artist made no sales personally the night of the show therefore he most certainly will be "Going out of Business" the rest of this month, September 30th show ends. Below are a few photos from the evening.

I am down the shore In WILDWOOD NJ with my family and am very disappointed to report that there are NO super CHEXX hockey bubbles anywhere in this town. This game(in my opinion) is the greatest invention known to any and all Arcade goers. My brother DCL and i walked for many blocks and checked every single Arcade. Most of them arent really arcades. They are miniature Casinos in which there are lots of glass boxes equipt with metal claws for you to grab ipods and sponge bobs. Resolution: We will be driving up to Ocean City later this week....just for Chexx Hockey.

Cross your fingers. Lets hope the above illustration makes it in to the City Paper Comics Issue this month. Cross them even more and maybe it will be printed in color. Last Monday I went to Skinners Bar for the Philly comics jam. Most of the people I met there are submitting, I can't wait to see their work. Check out what we did at the comics jam website.

Lately I have been trying to paint with water color and India ink everyday. After I sell a few more pieces I will be switching over to gouache. Here are a few illustrations of some characters I am working on. There are two that will be part of a book I am writing and illustrating. Respect the copyright.2009 Gregory Labold

A month or so ago my dear friend Carly had me paint on her left leg with acrylic paints. Angelo, another face painter friend, painted on her right leg. I had the pleasure of returning to Carly's home this past Monday for a delicious pot luck dinner. This time I ended up painting with India ink on a few of my friends. Anna Brye sent me this great photo of what i did to her leg(above).

DJ Darrel Asbury asked me to make a painting for his recording and mixing music studio. The following is what i came up with (3.5 ft X 5 ft)Acyrlic paint, silk screen, sponge print, Water color crayon. Most of these characters will be in my upcoming short stories and epic art adventure activity books. If you would like to hire me to paint for you...contact me for an estimate Gregorylabold@yahoo.com. I will work with your budget.

Not too long ago I discovered the 8 page zine fashioned from one piece of paper. I have a lot of catching up to do with the rest of the D.I.Y. zine and comics world. These images are meant to be folded into 8 pages using only one cut of your handy dandy scissors. I learned how to do this by doing a you tube search for 8 page zines. It's very fun and easy. Anyone can and should do this. Here are a few samples. I usually pass these out as a form of business card to promote my abilities as a creative creature. Have fun trying to read them upside down!!!
Here are a hand full of drawings I did while drowning in my own pool of self pity and potential. Most of these were made during the fall of o8 in our studio at PIFAS. A lot of what i make is about making something of myself. Hopefully one day I will get over my self satisfaction and work towards a greater cause for the community. For now it's self help till i can't help myself no longer!!!
