Saturn Music

Wednesday, June 30th, 2004

Okay, I admit it, I’m a sucker for this kinda stuff.

When I was a kid I heard some sounds caused by electromagnetic fields, broadcast from Voyager. This sounds a bit different, but it’s the music of the spheres.

A Japanese guy wakes up to find himself in a prison in Cambodia.

This is the opening of PIP, currently running in ‘Weekly Comic Bunch’, published in Japan.

Half-Year, Half Life

Well, it’s halfway through the year. As per my New Years Resolution, I haven’t published my Cambodia comic yet, haven’t been doing a lot of drawing in fact.

But I did get a quote, it’s $300 for 1000 copies of a comic. That’s not bad.

And haven’t done that Pox Girls site either.

Looks like I’ll be putting a lot of effort into a Cambodian Comics Exposition, to happen in October.

Watch this space for more.

Dunno. I seem to be putting larger and larger amounts of effort into more and more abstract expressions of comic art that are ever more distant from my personal life. Part of me has always been about spruiking comics. But if I’m not drawing them, I’m simply a fanboy… abeit one living in the world’s most undocumented comix communities.

Sure, I think these things are worth doing, but there are ways of letting things evolve and then …pushing. Maybe I should be pushing myself on my own efforts.

New from Katsuhiro Otomo: Steamboy!


Yantra et Mantra

Sunday, June 6th, 2004

Had to get some change so I stopped at a cigarette stall.

They had these cute laminated good luck yantras. I offered to buy one but they just gave it to me. On one side you can see Earth spirit Neang Khanin wringing out her hair.

Fun folk Buddhism, will have to ask my friends to unpack the symbology.
