is an interesting digital comic... is this art?
What about some of the newspaper comics, are any of them true art?

What comic do you like artisticly?

All comics are art. It's just that most of them are very poor art, but there are some real masterpieces out there.

I have two words for you: James Rizzi. One of my all time favourite artists.



'Cats and Dogs are Lovebirds too'

Thank you for starting this topic, Terry. It's funny, because I've just started working on an exhibition of crazy comic 3-d constructions with a great partner, Wolfgang Schoeck (great grandson of the famous Swiss artist, and son of the nephew of the famous Swiss composer). Something utterly different from what I normally do, but my art is ALIVE again. And having a lovely working partner is bliss!

Thank you, guys. It is really great fun to do just anything that comes up in my head for a change. Nobody to please, nobody to impress - just to be 100% creative; that's what it should be about, right? I just feel better all over again. I've nearly finished my first effort called, 'Raining Cats and Dogs', and will take a picture as soon as it's finished. The fun thing is that I'll be able to do my own frames for these, like for the works in my first exhibition - which used to be almost more fun than
doing the pictures themselves for me - so I'm looking forward to that too. And I'll post Wolfgang's things too when he gets finished. He's really great.

Do you often do this meditative response thing?
Just kidding!

I've got about 2 days' work left on 'Cats and Dogs' - and am pretty excited about it. But I'm not sure the others will like it that much. All the sensual lines and atmosphere are GONE. That's what people normally like about my work, and what I'm sick of...

Art is about expressing yourself...how YOU feel... NOT what everyone else wants to look at. the funny thing about it is that when you are doing what you need to do, everything else falls into place.

I do the meditative response thing whenever i don't scroll down far enough before hitting the button.

Thank you, Marcia & Riette!

Riette, German "Schein" or English "Shine"? Anyway, that's the people at your last vernissage, no? (Can't be the people at the Spring - too high male quota!)

What makes it a comic?

***********************************************************

Jack Kirby is one of the most super-legendary comic artists EVER! He worked for Marvel Comics from (at least) early Sixties until early Eighties (I think). Very classy style! I remember many Fantastic Four stories by him, so he was the one who introduced Silver Surfer, too, and the Nicht-Menschen (In-Humans?) living in the Himalaya. Very clear lines, excellent entertaining shapes, perspectives and forms, superheroes that couldn't possibly become the least bit more super. You think anything R. Liechtenstei
stole, erh, converted into art was good? You haven't seen that!

Overstreet is the catalog for US-comic books - every issue from every series is in there, prices according to condition and rareness of item.

 Response 55 of 84: Riette Walton  (riette) * Tue, Aug 31, 1999 (13:34) * 7 lines 
 
Thank you Marcia - sorry for the trouble though. I'm going to have to figure the computer out better, so this won't happen again. What a pain!

Alexander, 'Shine' is indeed a play on 'Schein'. Why it is comic? I suppose it isn't really, but it is a form of illustration - printed, not painted; which is why I classified it as 'comic'. Since my drawing abilities have let me down, I'll explain it better. Like I said, Shine is a play on Schein. If you look carefully (and even then maybe not!!), you'll recognize characters vaguely reminiscent of Hollywood stars. The green guy at the back, left, is supposed to be Peter Sellers, the red-faced guy
ust in front of him is Fred Astaire. On his right is Cher. with Barbara Streisand in the yellow hair in front of her. Next to Barbara Streisand is Dustin Hoffman, as Tootsie. Behind him is Robin Williams as Mrs. Doubtfire. At the piano sits Holly Hunter as in 'The Piano', with Tina Turner on her right. In the bottom right hand corner, Clark Gable and a non-descript "heroine". So, some of the characters are recognizable as actors, some of the actors have a second layer of 'schein', that is, they hav
assimilated their roles into themselves. And other faces cannot be recognized. It is up to the viewer to decide who they want to see as the real 'shine people'. Or they may decide to look at it is just a picture - that's the beauty of art. You can meet it halfway, or keep your distance - whatever feels safest.

I love Lichtenstein's work, because of how he makes them. They are oil paintings, mimicking comics. I wouldn't know which ones are 'stolen', because I don't really read comic books. But I find some of his works quite deep - like 'Wham!', for example.

No - I can never do the same thing twice. All the geometrical shapes - it get's really boring to paint them; I just couldn't possibly do the SAME thing again, where the outcome is predictable. Ugh!
But I have a good idea what I'll do over it. A collage of some sort - I just have to think of a cool design. In the meantime I've started something in oil now; usual old figure thing. I so would be able to paint landscapes, but I always come up with new kinds of figures; I just find it so fascinating, and it comes so natural. Ah well, maybe I just need another 10 years to be mature enough as an artist to be able to capture all those subtle colours and shapes that make up landshapes. Or maybe I'll go
way abstract - it's GOT to be easier to produce paintings in a matter of days rather than weeks or months! Do you know Rothko produced over 800 paintings??? All just those really abstract 'window' things. Pretty, but not alot of work, I don't think. And Andy Warhol produced over 2000 of those silkscreen paintings in his factory - well, his assistants did anyway .....

would varnish promote reflections of the flash? even if you used a matte varnish?

Not with matte varnish. But I always use the 'glanz' type. Acryllic paint colours are full of light, but 'glanz' varnish almost sets them on fire - that's how I achieve that VERY bright effect. I don't try to imitate light in my paintings, but rather to create it - like with a stained glass window where the patterns are lit by the sun outside.

Pluggined!!! Great vocabulary, Terry!!
The light thing is a Van Gogh influence - he also tried to create light instead of imitating it. I think he was just the most wonderful artist.
