The Dells

These two pages seem to be disparate in subject matter, but the artists wrote a note recommending that they stay together on the blog. In fact they went so far as to tape their entire written correspondence about this spread into the back of the book:

p. 16--what is this blob all about? --MC
I'm pretty sure its phosphorescent film over a lake. parasites maybe? feeding on recreational hotspots? --Rich
page 17--i put these parasites under a slide. turns out they are actually tiny slides. but who will go down them?--sco-ri
pg 16--i got there after the party had already left --MC
no one has respect
[sic] these days--Pon
i think this spread looks finished to me --Rich

So here we are. we have arrived at the scene of a vulgar party, but alas too late.

pgs. 16 & 17

Laughter is rare when you are by yourself. When is the last time you had a good laugh while walking down a deserted street, or in your room when you are sure nobody can hear you? When you laugh in the company of others, how can you be sure that they are not leeching off of your power of enjoyment? Pure, untouched laughter will someday be impossible to generate. Let it be your goal today to horde your laughter.
pg. 14 &15

A Beautiful Livingroom Set

The typical size of an animal cell is ten micrometers, but the largest known animal cell is the unfertilized ostrich egg. As a huge moving planet, one challenge that presents itself everyday is the star that we call The Sun. Out of the dry brush of the cosmos it springs like a leathery, venomous desert snake. Every living organism on the planet must learn to deal with this enemy as we are all practically neighbors. The inconsistencies of the world hold the key to our successful battle against this star.
pgs. 10 & 11

Room #1

There is no conclusive evidence to show that this drawing is/isn't a collaboration. The four artists say nary a word, nay, nay, they refuse outright to comment. But the fact remains that this is a drawing. A drawing of an interior. The location doesn't seem to matter. The context in which it was drawn doesn't seem to matter much either. What also doesn't matter is that this is the first interior in the collaboration booklet and it led to more and more. Watch out interior fans! There is more to come! right here!

Russian Castle

This troop of weirdos is running out of time and space. Will they survive each others' incessant sputtering? Will they become injured in soul as well as body? will they even make it to the bottom?
pgs. 6& 7

Gray Skies Are Going to Clear Up

Millie Cindzer was a driving force behind this drawing. It seems like her time spent working in the wilderness will always be sending rent checks to some part of her brain. Alana said that when she received the book for the second time there was a post-it note on this page that read, "Can you beleive that I once saw this scene in real life? It was the same day that I broke my ankle in the shower! 1978... -Millie" Then Alana drew all over it like the cat who sits on the book you're trying to read. The wilderness of the world is small, praise be to the wilderness of the mind.

Well, finally we have some new material from these artists, four. Allow yourself to know about this new collaboration: Tuggz, Ponui, Cindzer, and Rideout passed a 3.5" X 5" book between each other and were allowed to use a mechanical pencil and one color. They mailed it back and forth and the next string of posts will show the results. The pages will turn as directed by artists, chronologically and showing only what is necessary. Here are the first two pages:

You are on a camping trip in the forrest

You are dating someone

You are finding something interesting

You are stepping into warm water

You are experiencing a strange feeling

You are engaged in hand to hand combat with your friend

You are being helped to your feet by a very old woman

you are being tapped on the shoulder

You are swallowing something very dry

You are very thirsty

You are left with a feeling of dissatisfaction
