EXP #0


This is a new page for something that might happen later in the year. I think it's about the fourth page in a six page sequence. It's at a very experimental stage. Lots of floating ideas without any structure. When I'm starting something like this I try not to pressurise myself into making too much literal sense of the drawings 'cos it'll just end up getting nailed down to some bullshit explanation without other possibilities being explored first. I like this page so it''ll definitely end up in the comic, whatever other decisions I make from here on in.
It's enjoyable because you're basically free to mess around with as many unrelated doodles as you want. I've mapped out about six opening pages where the sequences were created almost entirely on instinct. I might have stopped once or twice to ask myself what the fuck I'm doing and then alter my decision about what I'm drawing but most of the inital material is drawn intuitively. For better or for worse.

This instinctual, Id at the wheel, Carl Jung tomfoolery will get you nowhere. Why don't you start drawing normal things like lorries? People love drawings of lorries. You could get a job drawing lorries in Lorry Magazine (Ireland's Number One Lorry Driving Magazine as Voted by The Lorry Drivers of Ireland). You're just going to scare people off with this stuff, fuggin excellent though it may be.
