I was showing my nephew The Matrix and I realized that a lot of the humans were hackers before they chose the real world, and since they didn’t want to live with the names the matrix gave them, they went with their hacker aliases. so that’s why so many characters go with really dorky real world names. how is there no one in the real world named Truedude1997 or something like that? Morpheus lucked out though. could you imagine? Morpheus’ matrix name could’ve been Ronnie. and how they look in the matrix is a visual representation of how they see themselves, so about 98% of humans in the future see themselves wearing all black leather and sunglasses at night.

I designed the logo of that sandwich place from this week’s Motherworld. I’m trying to make more graphic design stuff because it’s hard to get a job in that area when my portfolio has none of that. homework this weekend is to gather fonts.
I was thinking of also designing a menu, but the only item I could come up with was the KGBLT. still proud of myself.

The gem rattles and grows to the size of Yorke’s head. It illuminates just enough for her to make out the path. It’s helped her see more than just dark roads and caves. Ever since she’s been in possession of this twenty-sided oddity she’s been seeing places she’s never been before, one of which she now marches toward. It’s difficult for her to describe what this particular place looks like, because there’s nothing much there to describe. She’s drawn not by its appearance, but its feeling. There’s a sense of finality about it. An end. As she walks towards this impending conclusion she asks herself if it’s by choice or by chance that she’s journeyed this far. “Is any of this real?” she asks herself. “Does any of this matter?” The gem rattles, though it’s hard to tell if it was in response.

I felt like writing a little story for that thing I drew.

Yorke and her twenty-sided eye

Imagine all entertainment news outlets telling you which specific characters will die in whatever books and movies that aren’t out yet and you have comics journalism.

Back in the early 1990’s, when anime was still called “Japanimation” and The Simpsons still featured Phil Hartman, no one could have conceived of the concept of Bartkira. Yet 23 years later, in Neo-Britain, artist Ryan Humphrey gave life to the unimaginable. His pages for the mind-bending crossover comic ignited a fire in the mind of comic artist James Harvey, who proposed the impossible:
Recreate every page of Akira using characters from The Simpsons.
It would take 768 artists, each contributing five pages, to redraw the full six volumes of Katsuhiro Otomo’s masterwork. A monumental group comic project unlike any other inspired working illustrators, comics professionals, and even some who had never drawn a comic in their lives. Now for the first time, the project that some have heralded as the greatest thing to ever happen to the Internet is here to destroy Floating World Comics.
Come to Floating World Comics at 6:00 p.m. on May 1st for the opening of the Bartkira gallery show and meet members of the Bartkira Committee. Floating World will also debut a limited edition book collecting 100 pages from the Bartkira project as well as a full color gallery section.
WHO: Frans Boukas, members of the Bartkira Committee WHAT: Bartkira book release and art exhibit WHEN: Thursday May. 1st, 6-10pm WHERE: Floating World Comics, 400 NW Couch St

This show is going to be amazing, I wish I was in the states to check it out!  Don’t forget to check out frans boukas’ awesome art and reblog… he put together the art for this poster, and his pages in BArtkira are amazing!

dang, it’s happening! it’ll be fun to see all the pages in context now. wish I was in Portland for this, among a hundred other reasons. it’s a nice place. hopefully this means the volumes will be coming out soon.
