chris ware

acme.jpg
Today I found some wooden cabinets that comics creator Chris Ware made, influenced by Joseph Cornell. This cabinet has a slot for keys, and when you put one in, you get the first version of the Jimmy Corrigan "island story". Apparently, many people mistook it for a coin slot, and on one financially desperate day he dissembled it to take out $10 in coins and went out and bought eggs, milk and tortillas.

And, of course, a Chris Ware post wouldn't be complete without a robot reference.

Airport Security Follies

Don’t you just hate Airport Security? Particularly in certain countries, where their security procedures are so ridiculous they are even funny. This cartoon collection of Airport Security Follies has some really nice techniques and a great sense of humor.

Fearless humor

Some of the people that I admire the most are political cartoonist. Fearless and clever, they criticize the reality with a genius sense of humor.
rius.jpg
Rius is a fierce Latin-American political activist. His progressist and leftwing point of view is often present in his work, accompanied by a strong criticism of neo-liberal doctrines and U.S. Government policies. He raises the consciousness of his readers and mercilessly satirizes institutions, religions, endemic political corruption and repression.

El Chamuco and Los Supermachos are some examples of his work.

Red Meat

The self-proclaimed "most tasteless and twisted comic strip in the world," Red Meat is one of my all time favorites. If you don't know it, check out Max Cannon's site here.

This one goes out to the COLORS gang who have finally finished with the late late nights.

Fumetto

Fumetto is a really cool comics competition that takes place in Luzern Switzerland each year. I entered, but only placed in the top 45. Poor me. Anyway, you can view the winners online here.

Making Comics

cover-mc2.jpg
In 1993 Scott McCloud published 'Understanding Comics', an incredible book that tediously dissects the art of comics, completely drawn as a comic. Well, recently he released 'Making Comics', which is sort of a companion to 'Understanding Comics'. In this book, he focuses on the tools and techniques of creating cartoons. Certainly a valuable resource for anyone interested in the field. On his website you can even preview an entire chapter on making online comics.
Top job, however I must admit to preffering his hand rendered drawing style of the first book, than to his computer generated drawing and lettering of 'Making Comics'. And there you have it folks, thanks to the internet, I just became an official art critic.
