Strip Down

A Surreal Comic Strip

I was briefly engaged in trying to make a surreal comic strip. I made these three strips, that are essentially one broken up page I guess.  This never went further because I got busy doing album artwork for bands and didn’t draw comics again for many years. Boo hoo.

What’s it all about? You’re guess is as good as mine. This was made sometime after I rejected the notion of making sense with my comics. I guess it didn’t last because ultimately, as an artist I geek out on formal concerns more than content, as a reader I still prefer some sense to my comics.
