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
details:  48 4C pages 8 ” x 10.5 ” Spiral Bound $30 US funds ISBN 978-1-935233-20-6 Shipping June 2012 AdHouse Books Exclusive Limited Edition (300)

I saw this in the flesh at HeroesCon, and it was amazing. What you might be missing here is that it looks exactly like a spiral bound notebook that someone’s idly drawn on the cover of during class. Then inside are a TON of ballpoint-pen drawings by Jim Rugg, many from his recent gallery show. Kudos not only to Jim, but to Chris Pitzer, one of the most undersung publishers, in terms of technical prowess and quiet attention to detail, in comics.

Drive | Jim Rugg
Another phenomenal peice by Jim Rugg, done only with ballpoint pens and spiral notebook paper. The Notebook Nerd exhibition by Jim Rugg is on display at iam8bit in Los Angeles, California. 

Jim Rugg has been on some kind of wild tear lately. If you can’t get to the iam8bit show, there’s always this Flickr set of his bananas pen drawings. Plus his new podcast, Tell Me Something I Don’t Know, which he cohosts with artist Jason Lex.
