In which we are carried.

  1. I'm looking back at this over a year since I drew it. I believe it was an unfocused attempt to meet deadline. The final frame, I think, is an Oblique Strategy, although I'm not sure what was meant (if anything) by choosing to have it exceed the frame.

    Repetitious, looming images anchor the middle of the comic. The first was a constructed (by myself, as opposed to an image I found somewhere) pile of carved ankhs, as if an icon-creating machine had been left unattended. The second is a skyscraper rendered on its side, leaving an impression of a cinematic spaceship model.

    The fist frame taken the 2003 Sylvain Chomet animated feature "The Triplets of Belleville," The three sisters snapping in time to the mother playing some plaintive beat on the shoreline. I remember it was a deliberate attempt to not over-produce the frame.

    So, there are spare frames containing ornate frames, but in each case the amount of sketching is appropriate - there's no feeling of scribbling or having to shade in for the sake of making a mark somewhere. That seems to work, for some reason (which is a rare amount of restraint for me).

    Other than that, I have no idea what it's about.
