The ICRVN began as my home for everything you needed to know about stuff you didn't know you needed to know. Beginning as a clearinghouse for nerdy pursuits, it morphed into a home for all of my peculiarities, including my very own webcomic, CRASS FED. I hope you'll find something here you like. It's a labor of love third only to my wife and Kidlet, who along with Jamie Cosley I owe many thanks. Thanks for stopping by! Comments or questions to THEICRVN at GMAIL dot COM.

Nick and Nora Charles, by J. R. Deans (2013)
THE NICK AND NORA PROJECT
A place to share all of my original art commissions of William Powell and Myrna Loy as Nick and Nora Charles, my two favorite characters in all of cinema.  The collection began in 2011 with a quick piece by Ryan Dunlavey...and exploded from there.  Even if you aren't a fan of the films or characters you should find some fantastic art to enjoy and study.  My great thanks to everyone who has drawn these great characters for me.  I have thoroughly enjoyed building this collection.

SARA RICHARD
Added to the collection in 2014
I'll be honest, I wasn't as familiar with Sara's work as I usually am an artist when I ask them to add to this collection.  After my recent article on Women and Comics (where I mentioned DC's less-than-demurely clad Starfire), M3 creator Erica Schultz suggested I check out Sara and her Sweaters For Starfire campaign.  I started looking at her work, and loved it.  She has a very distinct style, heavily influenced by classical Japanese paintings.  That style is very unique for comics, and there was no question that I would love to see how she would interpret Nick and Nora.  I was not at all disappointed.  Sara has most recently worked on the My Little Pony books for IDW, and has published an Eisner-nominated children's book, Kitty and Dino.  Sara also contributed to the Womanthology project.  Find her at a show, and say HI!  Check out her Tumblr for some amazing portraits (including a very nice one of Benedict Cumberbatch just added).
