"This will be the final exhibition at the current Fayetteville Underground location. The community is encouraged to stay involved with the organization, as the artists move to their new home and resurface as the Fayetteville Art Alliance in January 2012.

"The overall tone of the novel is dark and quite frightening....the stories are interesting and sickening at the same time..... well written and illustrated with nods to social abuse, murder and

Communing With The Dead
Most of my time lately has been spent working on commission projects and research for this documentary graphic novel.  Working on historical projects involves a process that is much like communing with the dead.  It seems that I've spent more time in the last few years with people that are no longer living than with those that are.  When my head isn't buried in my sketchbook, it's buried in old newspaper obituaries, articles, criminal records, microfiche, and cemeteries locating graves of people that are found in this particular book.

University of AR: Mullins Exhibit
Recently involved in the laborious process of wrapping and shipping work.  Just a quick reminder I will be exhibiting work at Mullins Library at the University of Arkansas.  The work went up today and will be on display thru October.  Hope you can make it out!

Magazine Article Profile
Just like to thank Scott Meeker for helping get the word out about my book signing at the Joplin, MO Hastings and for the great write up in the August 2011 issue of Joplin Metro Magazine. Here are just a few excerpts from that article.

"Words, on their own, have power. As do pictures. But it's the intersection of art and story that captures Sean Fitzgibbon's imagination. "I've always been interested in sequential art being able to tell a story through visual images."

The three short stories in the graphic novel DomestiCATed (the latter a reworking of Edgar Allen Poe's "The Black Cat") are linked together by a roving feline that moves through them.

"I've always been inspired by old episodes of The Twilight Zone and Alfred Hitchcock Presents." he said. "I love anthologies and that format-fun stories with lots of twists. I called this book DomestiCATed because the black cat guides the reader through the dark underbelly of human existence. They have a domestic setting with these very troubled relationships."

"He said he enjoys working in other artistic mediums-particualarly painted acrylics and works done with pen and ink- and shows in galleries around the country. But he's always found himself drawn back to using images to convey a narrative."

"DomestiCATed, is not Fitzgibbon's only foray into the world of graphic novels. He's seen interest in another work entitled "Small Wonders" (the first issue of which is available online at www.smallwonderscomic.com), and he's spent much of his recent efforts developing What Follows is True" Crescent: The Baker Years. It tells the strange but true story of Eureka Springs' Crescent Hotel and Norman Baker, who purchased it in the 1930's.

"Fitzgibbon said that Baker was a vaudeville magician turned inventor, turned radio host then turned medical doctor....never mind the fact that he had no medical training whatsoever. "He was a fraud, " said Fitzgibbon. "It's a bizarre story. He went around saying that he had the cure for cancer. A lot of people put their faith in Baker. But it wasn't until a while later that people started noticing that there weren't very many healthy patients walking the grounds."

I'd also like to thank Kevin McClintock and Carol Stark.

Crescent: The Baker Years
In Production
Much of my time lately has been spent on the production of this documentary graphic novel. I thought I'd take the next few weeks to explain a bit of the process that has gone into this project. I first became interested in this story a while back while staying at the Crescent Hotel in Eureka Springs, AR after going on an evening ghost tour. Among the stories of hauntings were accounts of ghostly nurses pushing patients in wheelchairs through the halls late at night. My first thought was why would many of the alleged ghosts be of medical staff and patients wandering a hotel's hallways? And my question was quickly answered when the tour guide began telling the story of Norman Baker, a fraudulent "doctor" who turned the hotel into a cancer clinic in the late 1930's. I found the story to be too unbelievable to be true. Skeptical, I ventured to the local library the next morning and learned that Baker and the cancer hospital were accurate points in Eureka's history. However, I was surprised to find that there were not any definitive books documenting these years of the Crescent's sorted history.

I decided to take on the project, and after exhausting the library of its resources, I began visiting the town's historical museum. I made copy after copy of old photos, microfiche, books, newspapers, magazines, letters, and any other related documents I could get my hands on. I scoured historical databases and interviewed people both face to face and by phone that have ties to the hotel and even Norman Baker himself. I spent much time at the hotel, doing sketches, shooting pictures and interviewing employees. I've recently been awarded a residency at Dairy Hollow Writers' Colony to conduct research and work on this project for and extended time in Eureka Springs. I'll explain more about the process from research to final work in upcoming posts.

Inanimate
In much of my drawings and paintings I incorporate old mannequins, statues, or antique dolls. It's a theme that I explore often. One reason is because they don't move when I'm drawing them. Another reason is that I'm drawn towards capturing in my art, figures suspended in eras not their own and blurring the line between living and inanimate.

About a year and a half ago I was told by a good friend to check out this eerie, animated film short entitled Alma directed by Rodrigo Blass. They thought I would like it. They were absolutely right. It is fantastic and I recommend it. I often tell strange stories with my art and this is a story I would love to have told. Check it out at http://www.vimeo.com/4749536

Research for Upcoming Graphic Novel
This upcoming documentary graphic novel entitled What Follows is True: Crescent - The Baker Years chronicles the years 1938 and 1939 of the Crescent Hotel in Eureka Springs, AR. A man, Norman Baker, claiming to have the cure to cancer converted the hotel into a cancer clinic.

What took place during those two years is unbelievable.

I've been researching this book for the last five years. My wife and I recently traveled to Baker's hometown of Muscatine, IA, to conduct more research. I've conducted interviews with local historians and librarians and scoured numerous special collections and databases. The information found has shed light on this highly controversial figure and taken this true story to dark places I never even anticipated.

These images are of drawings and page layouts for this book as well as research conducted at the Musser Library and Muscatine Arts Center in Muscatine, IA. I've conducted an exhaustive amount of research and we'd like to thanks to Sheila Chaudoin, Fred Kopp, Virginia Cooper and all the fine folks at the Musser Library, the Muscatine Art Center, and Greenwood Cemetery for their help.
