Just as an experiment in seeking that elusive demographic interested in comics about art as well as other things for which the internet is far more popular, I'd like to write out here the three words from this comic that will generate maximal search engine hits for this entry: kiera knightley nudity.
Does Nathan take an early coffee break or does Danny take a late lunch? I'm not sure, but I'd like to have a storyline where the answer to that question would be an essential part of the continuity.
Which is to say that it was very hot today. And that I am genuinely upset and baffled by the iced coffee surcharge. Can anyone explain this?
The next strip will feature a return to dialogue. I for one am excited.
The second to last in this group of characters by themselves, this is the one that has the potential to spin off into a whole other series, at least until Danny and Nathan come back from their breaks.
Just for your reference, we're talking about this. Again, sculptures that seem like they could only exist as props in a comic strip actually exist in the world, much to our mutual horror.
I didn't realize it had been so long. Fortunately, Derek works slowly if at all. There will be a new Big Red & Shiny strip in the update, two weeks from now. Good times to be had by all, I assure you.
"The White Cube" will be on brief hiatus, as I'm going to be out of town for ten days, so the next posting will be on the 28th or so. Stop back then for a new era in comedic sequential pictorial narratives taking place in the context of the contemporary art world and/or business.
Not a "date" date. More like an appointment. But "It's an appointment!" is hard to say with such enthusiasm.
Out of town for a few days, so this here is an older strip not so much about art as about architecture, and not so much about architecture as about lunch. If you experienced a chuckle of recognition at this post's title, consider your educational dollar well spent. If not, a penny saved is a penny earned.
Seeing how it's already Tuesday, it seemed a little artificial to post these strips separately. Besides, they more or less go together. Please also note that the bearded fellow's name has been changed, because I realized that "Bart" as a first name would probably make people think of Bart Simpson. Yes, it took me over a week to realize that. But now that I have, all is as it should be, and the trains should be running on time, so to speak.
So the busy week of a week ago turned into the inadvertent week off of this past week, but those days are done, and we are back in business with this new strip from Big Red & Shiny & more to come on a daily schedule. Note that this strip includes basic cable language, so is not suitable for the kids who are otherwise reading this comic.
I promise that not every marginal artist character will have a beard and glasses. Just this guy and the other guy, probably.
Now I know what you're saying, "Come on, that dollar sign sculpture is such a dumb and blunt prop for some 'commentary' about art and money that it more or less invalidates anything you might have to say." Which would be true, if it wasn't a real sculpture.
Tomorrow, further excitement in the movement of art and artists, as well as further explorations of the elements of style.
Just as an aside, who all is visiting here from Scotland? I'm not trying to put you on the spot, just curious.
As promised, there will be a post tomorrow and on Saturday. You are encouraged to not miss them. You are also encouraged to comment on them, should you be so moved.
