Here’s the first 9 pages of Looking Out, which is a 40 page comic I did with Hic & Hoc last year.
You can get it from the Hic & Hoc shop but also at the moment it’s part of a set which comes with Three Stories by Ian Anderson, Bowman 2016 and Bowman Earthbound by Pat Aulisio, and Everythingness by Neil Fitzpatrick. You can get that here.
Amy Stein - Domesticated (2008)
“Within these scenes I explore our paradoxical relationship with the wild and how our conflicting impulses continue to evolve and alter the behavior of both humans and animals. We at once seek connection with the mystery and freedom of the natural world, yet we continually strive to tame the wild around us and compulsively control the wild within our own nature. Within my work I examine the primal issues of comfort and fear, dependence and determination, submission and dominance that play out in the physical and psychological encounters between man and the natural world. Increasingly, these encounters take place within the artificial ecotones we have constructed that act as both passage and barrier between domestic space and the wild.”
Work by Hanksy (On Tumblr). Hanksy has his first west coast show opening next week on Friday, May 24th 2013 at Gallery 1988 West. I really, really enjoy what Hanksy is doing with his artwork. If I were in Los Angeles I wouldn’t dare miss this show. Check out more of Hanksy’s fun below:

that class again…
“I see the M word on the board a lot. Mexican, Mexican Mexicans immigrant Mexicans I just want to point out that not everyone who speaks Spanish is Mexican Mexican does not mean the entire face of Latinos, sure there is a high concentration of Mexicans in pilsen but that does not mean they embody the entire population of immigrants and hardcore Catholicism in general.”
After class, my professor thanked me for saying something.
seriously? Its annoying enough that Latin@s get lumped into one category of people who are diverse as hell, but to confuse Mexican with Latin@s is another. That’s like…going backwards. People are getting to the point where they are either completely done with the class to just throwing up their hands and going “well, shit, we’re still talking about Mexicans”. Its called “The Latino Religious Experience in the US”. Deal with it.
