A L.A.WL.S. COMIC
Denis Rambles About Things...
I certainly have a love for words, not only in learning new ones, but figuring out how to use them in creative or even humorous ways. Words of interest, for example, was a bit of an exploration in this idea for me. I wanted to expand my vocabulary but at the same time, hopefully, be able to expand other peoples as well. You don't know how much it's made my day when people have come up to me at shows and told me they've started using a word front he comic in their daily language and/or jokes! But, before I go on some nonsense tangent about humorous verbal lols, let's stay on point and talk about writing, shall we?
It took me months of searching for a company to produce these for me. With the quality that I insist on having to sell anything at my store, this was a little harder than I had ever expected to encounter. With a few minor set backs, botched prototypes and misunderstandings, I did however finally find a great company who was willing to work with my anal retentive artistic eye.
Recently I’ve had conversations with a few other artists about artistic growth and figuring out your voice amongst the thousands of artists out there in the world. What was interesting to me is that I would keep coming back to my first projects as a refection of where I came. In having these discussions it dawned on me that maybe it would be a good idea to post these online again to give people a reference point of my growth to show people how much I’ve changed artistically, what things I tried and the subtle development of my own voice as a result of this project. So, I spent this last weekend putting filtering through my horribly organized photoshop files and compiled this new series on the site called “Unconscious Ink Inklings” or just “Inklings” on the menubar.
