Hello Everyone!

At long last, Counterweight, The Art and Concepts of Rick O'Brien has finally arrived. For those in and around Los Angeles it can be found at the following businesses that have Design Studio Press accounts: Art Center College of Design Bookstrore, Swain's Art Supply, Hennessey & Engalls, Kinokuniya, Meltdown, Art Supply Warehouse, Sterling Art, Gnomon Bookstore, World Supply, Vroman's, and Nucleus. If any other locations are brought to my attention I'll let you know. Online, Counterweight can be purchased directly through the publisher at As for any locals interested in purchasing a book, it might be a good idea to contact the store to check on availability, as I don't have a confirmed delivery schedule for local accounts. Any news and updates on book signings and art showings will be posted in the comings weeks. Much thanks and fortitude.

Here are a few low resolution spreads from the book. I hope you enjoy them.

I'm elated that your work has made it into a book entirely your own. Your skill has always impressed and inspired. I'll need to buy a copy to compliment your bold prints!

See you at Comic Con!
