This one comes from my long experience observing mouse culture in my complicated daydreams.
Longer (multiple page) comics next.
Happy new year all!
I attended the St. Mark’s New Year’s Day Marathon Reading this year. Below are some scans from my sketchbook from the event.
Here are some sketches and notes from a lecture by philosopher(-king?) Slavoj Žižek I attended in November at the New York Public Library. “Man is shaken by the beautiful madness called laughter and creates the mystery of shape.” he said. He was speaking about an incident where Derrida, as the notes say, finds himself ashamed of his naked body in front of his cat. The cat’s eyes represent The Other– the mystery of existence beyond the veil. The flowers were in a vase beside Žižek, but as perhaps Derrida would have wanted, I have placed them on his head.
More below the cut!
Well, it’s 2011 and as I expected from the future, we’ve received proof of time travel in the metaphorically convenient form of a tiny Swiss watch and Newton’s draconian laws of thermodynamics have finally been broken (apparently 60 years ago and then shelved in museum).
Why is the watch so tiny? Well, obviously the universe is not expanding it’s shrinking. We just don’t notice it because we’re all shrinking at the same time. However, if we would go back in time we would be embarrassingly small! Don’t believe me? Just think back to your childhood? Don’t you remember being ridiculously small? I know! Weird, right…
