The Dance of P and Q
Interesting conversations in the world of poemics and abstract comics about the relationship of words to images in experimental comics. Coming at the question from two different directions, one of the most interesting aspects of this work is focus on the abstract shape (and, well, concept) of letters. And words.
As always, I find these conversations and the work of others profoundly inspiring (I highly recommend checking out Rosaire Appel's new abstract comic, As The If And, as well as his blog for additional inspiration of this kind) When I should be, um, writing professional letters, I find myself absorbed in imagining letters as comics compositions. I think my love of language gets in my way as I tend to default to visual puns and word games. Still, this is what comes of PPPPlay.
