A diary by means of a collage by means of a cartoon. Verbose explication in the comments. Arriving fresh Mondays. read comics the wrong way at: Latent Narratives

Text is verbatim from the Excellent BBC audio series 'Tracks' by Matthew Broughton (initial broadcast was in September 2016). The series weaves medical text into a sci-fi thriller plot in a way that I found reminiscent of Paul Metcalf's collage-literature. In context, the sentiment surrounds a mysterious pregnancy that may have devastating consequences for the future of the human species. Here, it seemed to work to evoke the sadness of a dead relationship. The first frame from a 70's city scene photo (I seem to have lost the details). The three succeeding frames inspired, I believe, by artwork from Apartment 3-G artist Alex Kotzky. Inspired, maybe, but -as usual- drained of life. Still, I'm happy with it.
