A rewarding parallel project of my 99 Ways to Tell a Story was my invitation to fellow artists to created their own takes on my story template. If you haven’t seen it yet, be sure to take a look in the Guest Artists section of the “Exercises in Style” website.
I still occasionally get contributions which I try to get up on the website in due course. However, I admit the files sometimes sit around a while. So here I’m going to showcase three guest artists.
The first is a recent submission from Marcelo Lima, an artist and teacher living in UAE who interviewed me for the online journal Panoptikon. This is sort of a sketchy take on the comic “with subtle influences of Borges showing here and there, and a rather tenuous connection to Foucault´s ‘Le mot et les choses'” according to the artist:
Marcelo also has a really interesting blog where he chronicles his foundation drawing and painting class. Plus, he has a collaborative drawing project a little similar to this one called Le Cadavre Exquis Boira.
This next one’s a bit embarrassing: Matt Feazell gave me this wonderful stick figure version last summer at MoCCA Art Festival and somehow I managed to scan it but then forget to put it on the site. Sorry, Matt!
This one’s on the website already, but I wanted to share it again:
Tom Hart and I have shared a love for E.C. Segar for quite a while now and since his stuff is now being reprinted and (I hope) being discovered by a larger audience, it seemed like a good moment to call attention to this one again.
