Brian Eno, Henry Rollins, Shimmer Comic, Dream

So I consider myself a Brian Eno fan, but here’s my review of Brian Eno’s Taking Tiger Mountain (By Strategy) on Nostalgia Equals Distortion.

I saw this thing with Henry Rollins about traveling the world helping legitimately poor people on Book TV.  I’ve never been sure if I like that guy or not because I’m not a fan of his music & I suppose that’s a big part of how most people define him.

So for the SPACE anthology this year, Bob Corby is looking for some color comics.  I’ve been looking for the original of my first comic Shimmer (from back in 1995) for a couple weeks & I finally found it & scanned it in & did some watercolor work on some prints of it.  I’m actually pretty excited about it.  I decided to do the watercolor stuff after helping my niece do some watercolor stuff of just shapes.  I don’t think I’ve worked with watercolor paints since I was about 7 (always tempura or acrylics, though there’s no real reason why), so it was interesting & fun & I really like how the colors are splotchy & inconsistent to make it look a little rough/raw (probably because I’m using the cake water colors you can buy at the dollar store).

Last Night’s Dream:
She’s leaning against her car in the driveway of my childhood home while giving herself a tattoo on her right shoulder (the needle in her left hand) & the tattoo is bleeding pretty profusely so that all I can see is a patch of blood running down her arm & it seems like no ink is staying in at all & maybe the needle doesn’t even have ink in it.  I don’t have anything to say, so I just go inside the house.
