I have super exciting news!!
If you’ve been following my blog you’ve probably heard me mention my comic FLOCK a number of times. Well, it’s going to be in an art gallery! And you should totally come see it!
What is FLOCK? It’s the story of four friends on a camping trip, and how friendships are tested when you start to grow up.
It’s also an exploration of what space can mean in comics. It follows a branching pattern, where the readable paths are arranged in the actual landscape of the forest. You can ‘listen in’ on characters talking about each other behind their backs when they’ve split up.
Not only that, but it’s been printed at SIX. FEET. WIDE. So it’s longer than I am tall. Though I’ve showed this at different events (on laptops, tablets and projectors) this will be the first time anyone has seen it in this format – to be honest, I never really imagined printing it.
The show was only meant to include comic pages, but since FLOCK is one long unbroken story, there was no natural place to chop it up… so the curator is allowing me to show the entire thing in all its glory. I’m pretty sure mine must be the biggest piece in the show.
(I won’t claim to be the best, but I can say I’m the biggest, hohohoho.)
The event is also doubling as the book launch of Cloudscape’s newest book, Giants on Main Street. I don’t have anything in the anthology, but maybe someday!
If you’re in the Vancouver area, you should totally come see it, hang out with me, and see the work of a host of other awesome local comic artists.
