The Spilt Ink Podcast 009: “Like moving pictures, but not.”

Crosspost from spiltink.org:

"A last dinner"This episode of the podcast I take a question from Andrew J. Hawthorn, who asked about “Narrative techniques or figurative tricks you can only do in comics?”

“The roots of violence”Tricky question to answer with JUST words. I’ll give it my best go but for sure this podcast will have a youtube version shortly, with some visual aids. And check out the description texts here for links below. Right off the top, you’ll find page Page 89 of Dream Life, “The roots of violence” on the left, and “A last dinner”, page 68. Both typifying two very different approaches to unconventional page layouts, structurally, and thematically. But each applying the kind of non linear collagen like sequences that do away with conventional panels altogether.

I name-dropped the following scribblers and geniuses in this episode, If you’re not familiar already, go check out their stuff: Bill SienkiewiczDave McKeanNeil AdamsBarron StorySergio Toppi! & Diego Rivera! Check out the astounding DIA installation of the Detroit Industry fresco cycle here! And, Chris Ware’s Building Stories too!

As always, you can become a patron of the arts and subscribe here! Great news, the Patreon campaign has gone over $100 a month! Very encouraging to hit that mark at two months! I’ve just cleaned up the page a bit and set up a custom video playlist of my best stuff for the first page on patreon.

Music is, SadOceanSpaceBear & NASA in the opening. Diggin’ On Comix by Dr. John. Which some will recognize from the wonderful Comic Book Confidential, by Ron Mann. Closing out with Montreal’s The Unsettlers, “Disco Junkie”, off of Blood. And then Oscar Purrs!

Thanks again to Andrew Walsh & Troy Carlson, my newest patrons, along with Michelle Darwin, Emil Underbjerg, Tim Moerman, Ian Hodgkinson, & Shannon Becker! Plus, two secretive souls who will take no public thanks, but have it most assuredly. Merci beaucoup to you all!

 

The Spilt Ink Podcast 005: Details, texture & simplicity!

Crosspost from SpiltInk.org!

This is the fifth episode of my regular podcast project. The plan is to keep them short, and topics will be partly whatever i’m thinking about, partly requests from listeners. Mostly about making and reading comics for now but not exclusively.

You can stream the series from here: subscribe. Or listen to the episode via MixCloud, or on Patreon directly. Or watch the YouTube version, posted at the bottom, which includes footage of me working on the latest page of Dracula Son of the Dragon, along with some examples of work I talk about in the podcast!

First podcast of the new year!

Music in opening is a mix up of Nasa Space sounds, over Sadoceanspacebear. A bit of Diggin’ On Comix by Dr. John closes out the show. Performed by Mac Rebenault, Richard Crooks, Wilbur Bascomb and Steve Burgin

I had a chat with a fellow cartoonist on NYE, thought i’d do a short distillation of some of my thoughts from that here.

Also welcome and thanks to my newest Patron, an old friend, Tim Moerman! :D Tim and I go way back to the old days of The Monthly Montreal Comix Jam!

Thanks again to all my patrons, get a few more notes and check out the patreon here!

CH0-003 by salgood

For those of you who don’t know, ch0 was a radio show I produced on CIUT in Toronto. From 92 to 97 every Monday at midnight I had my way with the air waves. These days I use the name for pod-casts & playlists I put together from time to time.

this one is as follows: no talk talk from me.
Broncho – Try Me Out Sometime : 0.00
Mil Memorias – Neon Walrus : 2.33
Miracles of modern science – Luminol : 6.34
Netherlands – Something or Nothing : 12.04
Workin’ Man Zombie – 4onthefloor : 15.32
BATS – These Ones Lay Eggs : 20.31
tycho – dive : 25.09
Charles Spearin – Mr. Gowrie : 33.14
Sam Cooke – Peace In the Valley :39.31

Honour Bound – The Exile of Adolf Busch

I worked on the art for this last year, the music is by the ARC Ensemble of the Royal Conservatory, enjoyed it mostly. Directed by James Murdoch and produced by Simon Wynberg and James Murdoch. To be honest I’m not entirely happy with how the art was animated, would love to have a go at that myself some time. But the short has been well received and is now officially up on the ARC site after it’s run on BRAVO. You can check out a full gallery of the art from this project here.

Expozine 2010

OK, so it was a pretty fun weekend though i got nailed by the flue after all that.

Fist i want to say thanks to Nadia Moss for the loan of her wheels when i thought i’d left my stove on – it was all good in the end and i was able to grab my forgotten lunch too. Nice ride as well. Wish i’d had the presence of mind in all the chaos to go by her table when i was shooting clips, she was presenting some nice prints. Check out her stuff on flickr and this strange little video she did with Automatic Vaudeville.

As i mentioned in my fist post when I was stuck on the stage I had horrid sales. Managed to move to a great spot on the main floor day 2 and it made a hell of a difference! Easily three times as many copies of Dream Life sold along with several other books I brought. That helped a lot but the slow day one – normally i do better day one and a little less day two – means over all this was not really a very profitable expozine for me – covered my expenses but it could have been better had i gotten there early day one.

That sucked and so did getting sick. Gave me time to edit the video i took though. Sorry for the crappy sound, mostly could not be helped, cheep camera. Will upgrade some time when i have the spare cash.

So i shot a two part tour of event, talked to a lot of people, and below the clips here i’m posting links to as many as i can manage.

Rantz on ISR on about CBT

Been catching up on my comics pods.

Listening to lots of stuff while i fling ink madly at this.

Finally got to my friends at Indy Spinner Rack! Done some editing for their show in the past and got to press the flesh in NY a few weeks back. Really enjoyed sitting with them at the Con, and all the rest. didn’t have enough time to hang out, i Will be back.

Wish I’d bloody gone with them to Hero Con as almost planed! darrrr! That would have been so much better than staying at home and breaking up with my girlfriend. I am such a dummy sometimes, it amazes me.

In episode #134 Charlito and Mr. Phil talked with our editor and facilitator for the massive Comic Book Tattoo. Mr Rantz Hoseley.

I had to blush, I had not heard the ‘reasoning’ for our story being chosen to preview on MySpace before. And I’m not above sharing it with you here.

Clip of Rantz embarrassing me along with many others in the book is here bellow, and you can catch the whole conversation on the ISR site here.

 


Hear he’s back at the just regular insanity of getting Displaced Persons wrapped up! Hope he’s getting a bit more sleep now after the wild success at the SDCC!

Last week we were also told the book was the #2 bestseller on Buy.com, #15 on Amazon’s graphic novel bestseller list & #35 on Bookscan’s!

Glee.

 

Gett your Tattoo here.


Cheers!

Got a musical crush


Still in Toronto for another day, but soon I’ll be back at work. In the mean time though….


RonleyTeperAttheTranzacClubInToronto

After the con, i was able to finally catch Ronley Teper & co preforming @the Tranzac in Toronto Live. This is a band/performer i’ve been following for a little while now, found her via myspace, my cousin plays with her sometimes. you can check her out here.

http://www.myspace.com/ronleyteper

Also lots of links on youtube with the vid, check them ALL out. :)

The great thing was that i wanted to see this show but forgot the day of about it, lost in Kensington market reminiscing w old friends. Made some new ones too. Then me and john walked up to Bloor on Brunswick to get some sushi, and lo there we were passing the Tranzac! Ronley was out side and we said hello, got the stage time and grabbed a great din before the show. Nice night.

So, want a bit more?
