Notebook Drawings 2012-2014 on Sale

Monday, November 10th, 2014

Just wanted to let you all know that we are now selling Notebook Drawings 2012-2014.

As a bonus, early purchasers will receive a signed edition. We had a few extra at CAB, so Jim was gracious enough to sign them. (There’s no promise you’ll get one. First come, first served… until they’re gone.)

We realize our shipping options might be a bit wacky, so if you are being charged an insane amount (ex. multiple copies) we will refund the difference. Also, I’m sorry, but shipping to other countries IS expensive. More than likely the cost you see is what I pay. If it’s less, I’ll refund the difference.

(Also… just to keep the sales “in control”, I tend to put them up in lots of a certain amount. If the inventory is 0, wait a day, and there will be more. Thanks!)

Otherwise, here’s some pics:

Notebook by Jim Rugg

Wednesday, July 11th, 2012

Psst. Need a Notebook? How about a Notebook that’s full of over-the-top ball point pen drawings by Jim Rugg?

Notebook by Jim Rugg. Published by AdHouse Books

“Last year I started drawing again. For the first time in 15 years, I drew for reasons other than work. I make drawings out of the trash culture that I grew up with – superhero comic books, cartoons, straight-to-video genre movies, pro wrestling, and MTV. Like most marketing, that escapist fare usually promised more than it delivered. But those lurid video covers and melodramatic comic books fueled my imagination. As a result, the tone of my work vacillates between celebration and satire.” – Jim Rugg on Notebook
