Asleep in a snow drift

This time last week we were stuck in traffic in Miami but didn’t care because, you know, warm. And while we came home to yet another foot of snow and an opening bid of -36 (which is a convenient temperature in some ways because you don’t have to really convert Celsius to Fahrenheit at that point. The two measurement systems have caught up to each other and it’s effing cold no matter what you want to call it)… well, what can you do.

At any rate. Comics are great but kayaking among the mangroves and surprise manatee visitors when swimming are better (#sorry #notsorry) but what you really want to do, if you are at all interested in books, bookforms, writing, text, typesetting, or bursting into tears when you round the corner and find yourself looking into a case containing a copy of Stéphane Mallarmé’s ”Un coup de dés”, is get yourself to the Pérez for  A Human Document: Selections from the Sackner Archive of Concrete and Visual Poetry. The collection is nothing short of heart-stopping. It runs until May 25.

A screencap with three words underneath now has more notes than a pretty personal four-page comic story by two professional comic creators. It also has more notes than any of the posts I’ve written that involved actual research.

That tells me I’m done with this Tumblr….

This. Daily, this.

Stuart Immonen 2009: The CBLDF Presents: Liberty Comics #2
Meanwhile, like all great comics creators, the Immonens contributed work to the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund. They shared their oddball visual stenography from the Trampoline Hall Lecture Series, which is… uh… I’ll just reiterate the Immonen’s description:

The Trampoline Hall lecture series, conceptually created by author Sheila Heti, debuted at Toronto’s Cameron House in 2001. On any given evening, three lectures are delivered by speakers with no expertise whatsoever in their selected subject area. “Free speech” barely begins to describe the content of Trampoline Hall. This speech is so free it makes illegal left turns while fishing for candy in the glove box. It skinny dips in the neighbour’s pool at nine in the morning. This speech wears no pants and wouldn’t know where to buy pants even if it wanted to. The results are frequently arresting, often hilarious and always delightful.


This is a panel from the piece that will be reprinted in the CBLDF Presents: Liberty HC. Available April 8, 2014. Available now for preorder through your favourite on-line or bricks and mortar retailer.

Cutting and pasting Russian Olive to Red King
We’d already discussed these four pages to death. It’s the last dialogue before a long silent sequence which ends the first book (and then you get “Red’s book”). And in the process of lettering, we realized that it just wasn’t working. So we got out the scissors and scotch tape. Problem solved, for now. Next up, a reel to reel splicing tutorial.  Stay tuned.

On Fandom: Valentine's/Blogiversary Contest

kleefeld:

Today is Valentine’s Day. And exactly one week from today marks the eighth anniversary of my comics blogging. Because I love you guys, I thought it was high time I had a contest to give away some books. I’m a big fan of comics contests, and have gotten many comics and graphic novels for my own…

Oh LOOK! A chance to get your hands on the completely out of print Never As Bad As You Think! To say nothing of the actual excellence on that list…

Happy birthday, kid. You are an excellent human. Thank you.

Stuart Immonen 2008: Never as Bad as You Think
Stuart is back working with Kathryn! For those of you who don’t know the story, Never as Bad as You Think is the product of creating a webcomic based on a “word of a day” from illustrationfriday.com. In their case, they wove these widely varied webcomics together, using “links” to bridge the scenes (not unlike Monty Python’s technique to avoid having to think up endings for their sketches).
Anyway, this is one of my favorite scenes from this wonderful book, because the idea of birds talking about David Attenborough made me laugh out loud.

Available from Comixology.
