    altcomics asked: pressure to have an interesting life seems like its own kind of hell


    Answer:

    situology:

    That’s true! I guess it could foster an attempt at “specialness” that I don’t really want. However, my notions about what an “interesting life” is can be pretty simple, or at least more recently they’ve become pretty simple. It can be as basic as “I should go outside today.” So I go out and I just look around a little more intently, try to focus on small things that bring me joy, trees and the color of a building. Making comics about these things helps me focus on them. Basic mindfulness anti-depression stuff. I’m usually happier if I do this.

J. Hoberman of the Village Voice called this film “… the greatest movie ever made on the subject of devil worship in Greenwich Village.” I agree.

    xurxogpenalta:

    artist William Stout has gone through the Moebius list of tips and made expansive, referenced and reflexive posts on each of the tips from the translation I did and that Brandon Graham posted earlier on.
    As a huge fan of William Stout I couldn’t be happier that he’s doing this.

    He’s…

Dime Bag 4 curated by Jordin Isip Opening Reception: Thursday, July 3rd, 8:00-10:00 pm
The End is Near 465 7th Ave.  Brooklyn, NY 11215 (Park Slope, btw16th and Windsor)
 Each of the more than two hundred invited artists received a 3” x 3” plastic zip lock bag, a “dime bag” of sorts. They were asked to create their artwork for and installed within the bag. There was no overt conceptual theme to show beyond the device of the bag itself and each artist was free to interpret within these simple parameters.
