You've got the drawings. You'd just need to type the text and you could print this book for sale. It would be fun to disguise the cover as a children's book. You could have the satisfaction of knowing you disturbed some kids.
I'll do that if you print your complete BLOOD COUNT series as an Aids awareness pamphlet !
Wow, brilliantly cinematic!! I could not open the 2nd page. Don't leave me hanging! I'm hooked. The drawings are a perfect fit!!!
Hi! Yeah, I couldn't open the 2nd page, either. I could read all of it, except for the final portion of "I see that he is ......." (confident?).
error 404 fixed ;~j
It feels (both text, images, and spirit) like one of Kurosawa's Samurai pictures. Especially the "releasing energy as if it was limitless."
Kurosawa ! My gosh, I would be in good company with that Master Film-Maker Mykal ! My favorite of his is one of his Non-Samurai pictures, 'To Live' (Ikiru). It makes me bust down and cry every time I see it ! Such a masterful, slow boiling film that allows one to interact on multiple levels of emotion. This Waterbug series is a bit crude compared to later Dream explorations; but, the raw Epic nature still speaks to me.
Lysdexicuss: I am in a Japanese culture frame of mind of late - reading Eiji Yoshikawa's Musashi; and watching a bunch of Samurai movies. Tonight, in fact, I am watching Rashamon. The battle on the first page so reminds me of the big swordfight in the film; of which, later, the "thief" says "we crossed swords 23 times!" I have not seen Ikiru yet, but will yield to the temptation before long.
They all have a certain innocent charm; they are so naturalistic in their execution they often feel like documentaries. Does your Library offer Summer Film Festivals ? Ah~ I miss being in a City @ times like these !
In fact, I host an ongoing film festival at my library - this season: Technicolor Classics. Last month was Black Narcissus. This month: Robin Hood.
That original 1938 version is a masterpiece of casting; Claude Rains is one of my faves. Flynn was a real actor too, not just man-candy in tights to swoon the ladies. He made some darn good War/Western pictures & Gentleman Jim is in my all-time Top Ten ! Alot of folks in Philadelphia used to go to the Library to get out of the heat into AC, but, man was that place packed during a good film fest.
