the lonely bear
I finally finished my @CAKEchicago application, with a brand new mug shot. You still have a few hours left to apply, so do it!
Here’s a photo of a prototype double spread from my in progress Riso comic. I’ve spent way too much time getting to know the idiosyncrasies of the Riso, and experimenting to take advantage of the process, but I think I’m finally there. These pages are ink jet simulations of what the 3 color Riso prints will look like, including an approximation of the beautiful ivory paper I found this week.
Scott Roberts, accompanied by escalating drones from AJ Cesena on computer and guitar and Josh Jones on didgeridoo, debuted his sensory-overload gif-comic The Star Spangled Angel, about two army buddies, the chemical experiment which turns one of them grotesquely evil and the other super-strong, and their ensuing battles at Brain Frame 14 on September 20th, 2013.
If you’re interested in hypnotic durational psychedelic music/comics performance, you can now view The Star Spangled Angel from Brain Frame 14. It was inspired by Andy Warhol, Kenneth Anger, Alejandro Jodorowsky, Jarmusch’s Dead Man, and Cold War comic book mutations, among other various things.
The perfect music was composed/improvised by AJ Cesena and Josh Jones, who went beyond what I was hoping for.
Thank you Lyra Hill for allowing us to perform! Long live Brain Frame!
