Jan Lee - animirani web-strip Thunderpaw


No motion in this one. Originally I was going to animate glass shards rotating, but I feel like it would have taken away from the moment I was trying to capture on this page. 

Budućnost stripa?

Thunderpaw Comics

Jen Lee is doing something very special with her newly launched on-line comic Thunderpaw: In the Ashes of Fire Mountain. The comic, which is updated weekly, makes extensive use of animated GIFs, which in itself is not a new idea. However, the way that Lee incorporates animation into her narrative is as original as I’ve seen. She’s just getting started and I can’t wait to see where she takes the idea. - Amid Amidi

THUNDERPAW IS ON NOW! The first chapter is called The Brightest Night. It will be updated weekly (Tues, Wed, or Thurs) I will announce when it’s updated on here and twitter right away.
Alright everyone go already and check it out!


Character icons by Jen Lee in the style of her epic webcomic THUNDERPAW: IN THE ASHES OF FIRE MOUNTAIN which debuts tomorrow. Hold on to your butts!

I haven’t uploaded them here yet because I wanted to just do a big ol batch BUT HERE ARE SOME. Thanks Brian!
I can’t say it enough. Thank you everyone who’s bought one from me.

I uploaded it unfinished to twitter a long time ago then forgot. This is some wolfgod fella heh

Thunderpaw: In The Ashes of Fire Mountain is like no other comic I’ve ever had the pleasure of experiencing. It’s as simple as that. The comic itself is about two best friends, Bruno and Ollie, who are lost and trying to survive the ever crumbling world around them. But on top of the story, one of its major draws is the fact that each panel is expertly animated. It’s not so much a motion comic as it is an animated epic playing out in the confines of comic panels. Though it has just started, having only 5 pages up as of now, It’s enough to have me hooked. Creator/writer/artist/animator Jen has put together a comic that is not only great looking, but it almost assaults the senses (in a good way) with its bright colors and constantly moving animated panels. This is definitely a comic you’re going to want to keep your eyes on. I see big things here. Big animated things. -

WHY 1960?

I've been avidly researching the year 1960 with a special emphasis on poetry & poetics. Was '60 the turning-point year that I think it was? I suspect a claim could be made either way and in fact I'm more interested at the moment in describing why, despite all the new-decade & new-generation rhetoric, it is a point of continuity more than of change. Change was touted; continuity is the understory. In any case, I want to reach widely across politics and culture to get as rich a context as I can. Is '60 the moment when the end of the end of the Old Left had been reached and the New Left began to emerge? Is it the final ascendancy, in certain scenes at least, of poetic postmodernity? Surely the publication of Donald Allen's The New American Poetry that year suggests this, but then again--once again--we look back on "New" here and see continuity. The rhetoric of the Kennedy-Nixon contest made much less of a dent than everyone (at the time as well as since) claimed, so one wonders why were such great claims made? Had we come to expect "1960" to be truly ubiquitously modern in a way that the 1950s really were not--not quite? And what specifically does "modern" mean in the Kennedyesque talk then and now about the torch being passed to a new generation, etc.? The First Lady really meant "modernist" when Camelotians said "modern." What about the others across the new young cultural leadership? I've been surprised by how frequently the "Beat movement" was covered in 1960 in the mainstream press. I was expecting a fair measure but I've found tonnage. 1960 was the year when the figure of the beat was beginning to find acceptance, although still 80% of these stories are mocking, rebels-without-cause condescension. For anyone whose analysis made an impact nationally, do these antipolitical adolescents count as part of the "new young cultural leadership"? No, but rather than the two being opposites, they fall along a Continuum of the New American. Now that's a change for '60. -- Al Filreis, 1960 blog

My first Eureka moments in terms of curating was when I met Fischli/Weiss in 1985.

They sent me to see Alighiero Boetti in Rome and soon after I met Christian Boltanski in Paris. These conversations had freed me up in terms of what curating was concerned. I started to think about exhibitions which were unlike anything I had thought about before. They taught me the importance of experimentation, that there was not a prescriptive way of doing exhibitions. They also taught me that we only remember exhibitions which invent new rules of the game. These conversations and many other conversations led to my first exhibition World Soup the Kitchen show where my kitchen was transformed into an exhibition space and then one thing led to the next. Soon after these first conversations with artists I was very inspired by literature . Particularly important for me in relation to constraints and the invention of new rules of the games of exhibitions was the Oulipo group through which I became familiar thanks so Christian Boltanski who urged me to read Georges Perec and Jacques Roubaud. I then also read Raymond Roussel's How I Wrote Certain of my Books where he describes the games he plays with language and how these games would produce what Harry Mathews one of the protagonists of the group calls "absolutely unimaginable incidents of fiction".

Francois Le Lionnais another Oulipo protagonist emphasizes the importance of the term potentiality which he prefers to experimental, potentiality meaning the attempt to find something which has not yet been done and which could be realised.

Oulipo became the trigger for many of my curatorial projects in the 90s such as do it and unbuilt road.
