Beuys Drawings

This story was inspired when I went to see the work of German Fluxus artist Joseph Beuys. His drawings are so unique and innovative. For this story, I used a new type of narrative developed by Hunter S. Thompson which was called “Gonzo Journalism”. I guess I would call it, “Gonzo Graphics Narrative”.

The Man Who Forgot “Ray Bradbury”

Happy 2017 all! I decided to start off the new year with a story by Neil Gaiman. I came across this story about how he was having trouble remembering Ray Bradbury, one of the great sci-fi/horror writers of the 20th century. I was so taken by Neil Gaiman’s story that I decided to take his story and do my own comic on it. The words are directly from Neil Gaiman (Man! There was SO MUCH writing) but the story was brilliant. Hope you like my take on it.

Where Do You get and Idea?

I decided to try a new medium, acrylic on canvas paper, for this project. More a philosophical approach to a web-comic.

Clearing an Artist’s Head

This is one of the reasons that was described to me why an artist needs to create.

Being Different

I did this comic during a really, REALLY dark moment in my life. I needed to express my hurt but what is interesting is this came about with my involvement in the art world.

The Nuit Blanche Variety Show

I have participated in a number of Nuit Blanches and what I see gets me thinking. For this month’s webcomic, our artist friend gives his thoughts on Nuit Blanche.

Future in Art

This is from an actual conversation I overheard two students talking about whether or not they wanted to be artists when they graduated. It made me think about my situation and so, I came up with this story.
