|A Poemic in the style of Satu Kaikkonen|
poemicstrip blog a little over a year ago, I recognized a literary/art form I had already been exploring with a local arts collective, BAR Corporation, as we made conceptual art comics for the SIUC student newspaper. Working with Piotr and other poemic artists, I've contributed work to collaborative artist book projects, an up-coming issue of Xerolage, a forthcoming essay on connections between experimental comics and performance art for the Polish comics journal, Zeszytow Komiksowych, and had a multi-page graphic poem accepted in the journal, Palooka. And all that more or less just in the last year. Whew!
All of which is simply to say that poemics and experimental comics have been very good to me. I encourage you to check out the work being done at some of the blogs in the list over there on the right, or to follow the hyperlinks in this post. Copied below is some of the work I've been contributing to the poemicstrip blog. Enjoy.
