Some pages in my (semi) daily sketchbook.
Not exactly formal comix, per se. But still.
I LOVE looking at other comic artists' sketchbooks (craig thompson's travelogue "carnet de voyage" comes to mind), so I thought I'd share mine.

thoughts on graphic novels' evolution [Wednesday ♥ November 29th, 2006]

[ mood | geeky ]

Graphic Novels as Appropriation of Mass Culture

Graphic novels are a group of books containing illustration-based narratives. Graphic novelists, at their best, are masters of techniques of appropriation. For example, in Persepolis, Marjane Satrapi appears to borrow heavily from conventions both of comics and of children's picture books. However, graphic novels emerge as an artistic representation of mass media and its role in our lives that, like other works that incorporate popular culture into the fine arts, seek to rise above their mass-culture influences.

Graphic novels are constantly in conversation with mass culture forms...Collapse )

Enjoy! What do you all think?

hey there. mod here. [Monday ♥ June 27th, 2005]

[ mood | curious ]

i just realized how much i suck at being a mod. this is my first community, and i dont know much about upkeep and all that, but i figured i should do something due to the fact that we only have a few members, and less than 10 entries since last fall when i made this community.
i was wondering if we should do that thing where we "promote" and all that orrrr do you guys think its just fine the way it is?
lemme know, bc i have no idea what i'm doing. ;)

Thompson tattoos [Monday ♥ June 27th, 2005]

I first read Blankets after the disintegration of my long term relationship with my first love and it was a comfort to me and yet it's still that depressing piece of literature that I have tucked between the mattress. I love Craig Thompson so much that i'm going to have some of the images from Blankets tattooed on my skin and I know of one other guy rocketeam who has a Blankets tattoo. Anyone else?

Once I get mine done, I will post pictures on this community.

[Sunday ♥ March 27th, 2005]

For my fiction writing class, as an intermediary project between short stories, I have to write about the most influential author that I have read. The author that inspired me to write fiction. I also have to do a 3 minute reading of the author's work.

I chose Craig Thompson because he is the catalyst for my getting involved in comics. Before I'd read Blankets, I’d already had an underlying interest in creating comics; however, I thought it to be a superhero-oriented industry only looking for a hemogenous illustration style. I picked it up on a lark, while browsing the graphic novel section at Barnes and Noble.

The rest is obvious, I guess.

Anyway, I consider myself lucky for being able to tell him this in person last summer.

I had to read through Blankets for the first time since I finished it a couple of years ago, and it brought a lot of my appreciation for him back to the forefront of my mind, and I wanted to share.

I just re-read Good-Bye Chunky Rice, and was reminded of how cute an illustration of a turtle drinking a cup of tea was.

Yay [Sunday ♥ January 2nd, 2005]

I'm glad to know there are other craig thompson fans. Blankets changed my life, and that's not an understatement. I used to get kinda prissy when other people liked blankets. I mean, GAWD IT'S MY FAVORITE BOOK. NOT YOURS haha. but no i understand that most teenagers know exactly where i'm coming from
