Abstract Comics: the blog


For ABCOLAB #2
Don't even know if it's accepted yet, but this is my contribution to a group project at ABSTRACT COMICS: the blog. A unique site, to my knowledge, well worth a look-see, whether I get in or not.

Good stuff! Thanx!

A.Decker said...

Ruela,

Thank you!

They did put mine in, but we need three more panels to finish.

To Everyone:

WHAT SAY YE?! Any comic strippers around here? ;-) One square panel's all you gotta do...? It can even be something you do over here, and just leave them a link in comments. Easy.

Just say to yourself, "I'm gonna be a comic stripper!" See how that makes you feel. ;-D

Yeah. Do it.

Ruela said...

Nice.
I have one here:
Couple in a Box

Ruela said...

It's donne...after approval...

A.Decker said...

Ruela,

Far Out! And it's a good one, too. Perfect. I'll be watching for it to appear, as I'm pretty sure Mike will go for it.

Jase said...

damn, am I too late for this? I love abstract comics.

A.Decker

I forgot, it's not a square...it's a rectangle, oops!



Jase

A.Decker said...

Jase said...

Jase,

I like that! And while it is a bit more representational than the others, I do think it would make a great finale to the strip.

Good luck!

A.Decker said...

Ruela,

You sure you couldn't crop it--no, I don't mean crop it, but add a square border? Somethin' like that?


Regardless, this is the second time they've done this. Bound to be a third...

Jase said...

yep, my last one was too representational. Not sure what I was thinking really, should have gone to be hours ago :)

I have tried again, hopefully this time I'll get in... if not, I'll just start my own :)

some great work on that site, didn't realise how much I love abstract comics.

second attempt can be found here:

Jase,

I saw. Your second one got in. Very good! I also noticed another row of blank panels has been added, so I guess there's room for more.

Ruela said...

done it, with other work.

Jase said...

cool

A.Decker said...

Ru, that's a good one, too.

I just looked; we're all in it!

Yay us. ;-)

Is discharge Dada? No, it is not. Influenced by and with a similar attitude to, but not Dada..

Is discharge Fluxus? No, it is not. Influenced by and with a similar attitude to, but not Fluxus.

Is discharge art for intellectuals? No, discharge is for anyone and everyone who appreciates creativity in all its myriad forms. Be it static visual, audio or moving image; the written word or the deconstructed, non-linear form. The spoken word and noise.

All creativity is the springboard for discharge. It highjack’s a multitude of genres and disciplines and transposes them onto the internet. discharge is electronically transmitted art, be it via blog, myspace or whatever format possible, it can also be produced and seen in classic formats.

The discharge Chapbook. The discharge Building by Parts book. discharge has no rules. All contributors to discharge are responsible adults. discharge has no leaders although it has an elected body of rotating editors who oversee rather than dictate the flow of the group.

The aim of discharge is to profile creative people and to do away with the pretension of the art world. Everyday people creating art everyday to an exceptional quality.

Art by barrow boys and girls. discharge is international.
