since I have way too much free time, whipped up a poster for my local awesome cinema the cube - here is a version without all the text, and in colour too. it’s for a really cool sounding documentary about Russian musicians who made electronic instruments using stolen KGB/soviet survaillance equipment. (amazing)
you better click for a better quality version!
"A Sticky Situation" (1960) by Carl Barks
I like how advertising is literally still exactly as sexist as they’re joking about in this comic from 54 years ago.
i don’t know what to think- it’s kinda sad yet pretty cool that someone way back when was doing a disney comic with really damn good and grounded social commentry!
i bought “Seconds” last week and finished it this week- it’s so fucking good! I forgot how amazing bryan lee o’malley is at pacing/panelling- everything is just so easy and seemless to read, but also really entertaining and meaty a sa story. the characters are fantastic.
this art seriously doesn’t do the characters justice :’( I acutlaly love all the characters, but these two had the most style~ :’D I could relate to Hazel the most haha! also, i drew picture frames cuz they seemed really significant to the comic’s undertone.
somebody talk about this comic with meeee
i can’t remember what this was about but i enjoyed being obsessive about it
hey everyone. this is a REALLY doodley comic but i have scanned as i felt the message and ‘research’ (self discovery blahbla) was significant and/or interesting and should be talked about.
so, if you’re up for reading about/understanding abusive relationships- that is, being abused by someone you totally love (weird).. done at 3am one night after an eventful day- totally unfinished, there are more pages and i don’t know if i want to post them. bit what was written in these first 3 pages seem significant/hopefuly informative. this was originally written to help my friends and myself understand my reasons/feelings behind the events.
anyway i know the production is poor- hell, i don’t know what i was doing meeting up with this guy but that’s that! and i hope at thevery least people who’ve been through simmilar can relate. It sure took me a while to come to realisations about my thinking and i’m still learning. also this is old, i may feel differently now.
i’ll probably delete this later, haha!
most people have a hard time accepting what they are going through is valid to begin with. Don’t add to that insecurity.
YES! I once got super angry at a friend fo mine for telling another friend they surely didn’t have ‘real’ depression b/c bluhbluhbluh- whatever man- if you feel shitty you feel shitty and it seems illogical to me to assume you know how someone else feels :’I
where did you get the idea for your blake sinclair comic? it's absolutely magnificent :)
It’s really hard to say where ideas come from exactly! It must have been a number of things. generally I think it came from thinking about the indie subculture, because that is/was something i am apart of, and a guy i know (who blake was sort of based on) was at the time the annoying and beautiful embodiment of that stuff.
huge amounts of info below.
Because this is an art blog and I should be posting art, here’s some visual experiments for a short comic.
remember these, kids? they used to be so popular on deviantART way back in like 2008 and i remember i used to be so pumped about doing one, though i never really did. so, last night i even had a dream about doing one of these, so i put together some scenarios and here we are, haha! feel free to reblog or save the template for yourself if it catches your fancy!
I want ppl to do these- please tag me if you do so I can see!! (Maybe I can do one too)
They just fired on the crowd!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! peaceful protesters
