Matthew D.(pliers)- my submission for the Altcomix comic challenge. The following script was provided:
“It is nighttime. There are trees.
Trees filled with eyes, and dying men.
A kind of bird, hiding its face behind white gloves.
Something falls from a great height.
And puts a smile on the moon.”
Check out the others by following the Altcomix Comic Challenge hashtag. Good times!
Bonus Tracks is a ten-strip series that was specifically developed for Toronto’s 2014 Luminato festival newsletter, the LightNews. Each strip is based on a different musical theory, style or compositional technique. The standard laws and framework of said musical tools were then adapted (sometimes slightly, sometimes significantly) and used as the basis for that specific comic strip, whether it be in structure, theme, content or a combination of all three.
For those of y’all who might be a bit more Q-Bert than Schubert, each piece contains a brief description of the related musical landmark used, which is also the title of each piece, respectively. Rock!
Big thanks to Jonathan Rotsztain at All Caps Design as well as Trevor Abes and Noah Richler at Luminato.
