Michigan Picture 2
In recent years I have grown increasingly interested in the visual arrays created by comic pages. I created an animated film ("animated" used loosely, really to mean moving illustration) titled Scenes from Starkdale, Ohio to explore those issues. Now, as I return to the comparative simplicity of book pages, I'm still interested, but not so much in the reading experience of comics. I just want to look at things. Above, a sketchbook spread with panels, sans text. Gouache. Drawn in Michigan at Thanksgiving. Painted in December. Below, a Starkdale frame. 2006.
