Portraits, Pop-Ups, Prognosticators, and a Proof of Concept
Well it turns out that if you want to make a photocomic, being a great photographer doesn’t hurt. Who knew?
Seth Kushner’s Culture Pop (not to be confused with CulturePulp by Mike Russell) features photocomics of real life characters. Click on the chapter numbers to surf from person to person. It’s pretty cool.
This being Friday, a few odds and ends:
A couple of cool not-comics books in the mailbox this week. I’ve just started diving into Kevin Kelly’s new book What Technology Wants but it’s a fascinating read already. And Andrew Farago’s first book is out, a handsome new Loony Tunes Treasury, with all sorts of fun sproingy extras in it.
Finally, Mike Leung offers a little proof-of-concept experiment mixing words and pictures:
“An adaptation of Swift’s Modest Proposal that gives the reader control of the story progress via common-sense scrolling, can be as light as you can make your image files. and needs no commercial tools to publish other than what it takes to post digitize artwork online.”
Have a great weekend!
