How I became Nib Geebles

Hello and welcome. My name is Nib Geebles. You may be wondering, as others have wondered before you, "What the hell kind of name is that?" Believe it or not this hasn’t always been my name. My parents gave me another name, which I still use today when marooned in polite society. I became Nib Geebles in 1985.

Hansel & Gretel

During the year 2016 I set about retelling and illustrating the story of Hansel & Gretel, a story that has been scaring children since the Middle Ages. It's the perfect story; two young persons thrust into a cruel, inexplicable world, against their choosing. They survive and find their way home by using their wit and by working together.

In retelling Hansel and Gretel, I chose to stick to the traditional story, with slight changes. I put Hansel & Gretel in a more contemporary setting, somewhere close to Los Angeles.

Hansel & Gretel, the exhibit, runs from December 10, 2016 through January 14, 2017 at Bermudez Projects, 117 W. 9th St., (Space 810) Los Angeles, CA 90015

Opening Reception: Saturday, December 10, 7-10 pm.

Nib Geebles News
I was with my friend and associate Robert Caruso (he is now in the business of show business). Back in those days Robert spent a lot of time upside down. I don’t remember if he was upside down or not on this occasion but I do remember him shuffling and spilling his papers. One of the things that fell out was a stamped letter. He sheepishly picked it up and put it away. I happened to notice that the letter was addressed to Nib Geebles. Without seeing the address…I knew the letter was for me. Within a few months I would make a calendar and my fate would be sealed; I would be "Nib Geebles", a guy who makes calendars. Around this site, with the clicking of the mouse and all that, you will find samples of other things that I do, or have done.
