Sequential Art Gallery presents the art of “Terra Tempo” by Christopher Herndon. The exhibit opens this Thursday, December 4th with the artist’s reception from 6pm to 10pm.
Published by Craigmore Creations, “Terra Tempo” tells the story of three children who, upon unlocking the secret to time travel, journey into the past to witness grand historical events like the great Missoula Floods, or take a tour through the Cretaceous period. Throughout the three volumes, writer David Shapiro, Herndon, and colorist Erica Melville send the book’s time-travelling trio on a multitude of adventures. They visit the not-so-distant past when the Pacific Northwest was home to giant mammoths and saber-toothed cats, witness the beginnings of prehistoric life, and team up with noted historians like Herman Melville, Annie Montague Alexander, and Andrew Carnegie, all while working towards becoming full-fledged Time Explorers.
Herndon has been working in the comics industry for over a decade. He is the co-creator of the acclaimed series “Living With Zombies”, and has professionally drawn a range of subjects from extinct animals, monsters, sassy ladies & cowpokes, and even the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. “Terra Tempo” is the most recent and herculean of his illustration career, and has provided him with an outlet for his love of science and dinosaurs. Herndon’s work can also be found in numerous comic books, album covers, games, magazines, children’s books, national parks, and natural history museums.
Herndon’s “Terra Tempo” artwork will be on display throughout the month of December, with gallery hours on Mondays from 2pm-6pm, Saturdays from 11am-5pm, and by appointment. The exhibit will close at the end of business on Monday, December 29th.
