white frames

White Frames I've tried the "book" mode, it looked good, but the pages became too small (and now they're too big :) ).

Bogusław Strzegowski and experimental comics

these pieces were not originally created as comics, but the author has agreed for presenting them as experimental comics on this blog. please take a look at the frames, the connections between images, how this all is presented, and at other things - I think these works can be very inspiring!

you can find more works of Bogusław here: http://hagall.digart.pl

and now for something completely different ..

CrazyPatch Comics

"Crazy patchwork is a technique where random shaped pieces are stitched to a foundation fabric. The piecing can be left unembellished or you can add a little or a lot of embellishment - there is an endless variety of ways in which embroidery, ribbon, lace, braids, buttons, beads and charms can be manipulated to add dimension and beauty to your crazy patchwork."

I thought that this technique could be used also in comics....

These are made with computer for the help of Paint.net I often do my works in that program, because then I can use photographs or scaned materials.... and cut and connect things together....

For beginning, few samples, what I’m looking for in comics.
Point of connection between “experimental” and “traditional” graphic narration:
-one and half (“jump to the water”)

-and two pages (“sex with goddess Kali”)in one panel

from my graphic novel "Bajabongo"

-and “falling” from “N.E.S.T.”

invitation from Zeszyty Komiksowe

the next issue of Zeszyty Komiksowe magazine will be about experimental comics. we are welcome to present our blog somehow, these can be theoretical texts as well as comics. each published author will get a free copy of the magazine.

The issue we are talking about (number 10) is planned around June 2010, so we should prepare and send all materials in May, I guess.

more from the editors:

they are mostly interested in such things:
- the theory of borders of the art of comics
- experimental comics: yesterday, today and tomorrow
- experimental comics in Poland and in other countries.
- experiments concerning artistic features, form, narration, subjects
- comics and new media
- comics and other arts
- analysis of interesting experimental comics

they want theoretical or historical articles, crytical analysis or texts written by authors (about how their experience with experimental comics)

they also wait for proposals concerning interesting artist or theoreticians, with whom interviews should be made.

last but not least, they want to publish some outstanding experimental comics.

so you can write to them (English or Polish. the magazine will be in Polish - but the translations can be arranged somehow) at redakcja@zeszytykomiksowe.org or we can plan something first and coordinate our activities, to help them create a very interesting issue.
