Our pen pal sent us an article on some anarchist demonstrations in the Pacific Northwest. Have you heard of Austin Kleon? While our paint dried on another project, we stole his idea of blacking out newspaper pages to highlight only select words that create new meanings. We’ve wanted to do something like that ever since our friend John interviewed Austin on Art Heroes Radio. What better place to start than an article with lots of references to anarchy?!
O, Remember chaotic clothes
Downtown windows filled with pink pigment
Pop-fiction, and pirates
Nobody answered the door
Youth. A famous affair-
In Seattle, we might have been idiots
Among anarchist experiments
A movement, chaotic moments
A fogged bliss with daunting earnestness
Property damage, sealed by the stranger
Under a few people who weren’t even jailed for months
Wow – it has been a lot of fun hosting our Captain Victory Gallery! Jack Kirby has certainly melted our brain circuits with this collection of splash panels. So much so that we were inspired to take one of his images and paint our own version – a tribute really, to the King. You can see below what we came up with. We hope you feel some similar inspiration from Jack Kirby, and that you go on to seek your cosmic destiny in bigger and bolder ways!
We’d like to give a special thank you to Alex Ross Collector for re-tweeting our Captain Victory posts, bringing in veritable legions of the cosmically curious. We also give props to Diversions of the Groovy Kind for sending truly titanic traffic our way to join the summer celebration. Guys and gals, we love comic books! Stick around. We’ve got even more to enthusiastically share with you. Thanks for reading!
