an experiment from years ago.... about 2005.

I have always loved the mixture of words and art. Not always just in comic books, but in art that hangs in museums. I tend to carry that love into my own art. I usually include words in a lot of my paintings. I don't know why it's always intrigued me, but I think it always will. I also love poetry and writing stories. I wondered what it would be like to mix the two into a sort of 'un-comic'. In reality, it really was just a comic book of sorts. It tells a story, it has pictures and it's laid out basically the same. The pictures here are found on the net', the words are my own fiction and the idea was just to create a visual to go with the emotion attempted in the writing. Just add music and I'd practically have a film or animated short. Anyway, it only was a one off thing and I never tried to do it again. It was a lot of work and maybe I'll do it again in the future.... we'll see. I just thought I'd share it with you all just to break up the regular flow of movie reviews. Perhaps if you dig a little variety, I'll try and throw other odds and ends in at a later date. Let me know! That is all.

NOTE: The words and feelings are real, however the story being told is fiction. Only pieces of it were taken from real life and expanded for effect.

  1. You're right... There's more to life than movies Joel! I like the collage. How's the job going? Not much time left for anything else I bet. You said you liked zombies. Did that include feeling like one?
