First, let me say how sorry I am to censor this fine art. Jobs will be saved! Just click on the pic to get the real goods. Rand Holmes is someone that I only learned about maybe half a year ago, but he’s got some really inspiring stuff.
On my Christmas visit to Vancouver I got to meet up with one of the guys I do work for and he was nice enough to not only introduce me to Holmes’ art, but give me a bunch of comics with his work! This issue I’m pretty sure must be some of his first printed work, but maybe I’m wrong.
Not only is Holmes a great Canadian artist, but he’s a hell of a writer! Baldric the Barbarian follows Baldric as he escapes the oppressive man-loving government, on the run for his perversive heterosexual way of life. Full of sex, drugs and barbarianism; Holmes puts it all together.
By Crom’s Great Bronzed Balls, indeed!!!
I plan on reading through all of Rand Holmes’ comics while commuting to work and back. I’ll add some more entries for the different stuff I have of his.
I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t know as much as I should about this man’s life and work, but I plan to find out more over the next few weeks. I really do dig his stuff though, it’s a real inspiration!
