Someone asked me what a comic I’d write would be like. This is my first comic, published towards the end of 2011 in Solipsistic Pop 4, a 4-pager entitled Small World. i don’t know if I’d write one like this now- this was very much shaped by events then- but i hope i’d be able to be as creative with how the story is told. The theme of that anthology volume was maps, and I drew a treasure map of my world at that time and then made a key as to where to find what i was looking for. Or something. Read this how you like.
That middle double page spread is the map: click to enlarge.
This is really incredible. That middle two page spread…*drool*
Alison Sampson has a really beautiful comic called Genesis coming out soon. You should keep an eye out for it and grab it. She’s pretty incredible. I like her art a lot.

"I’ll tell you why I’m so thrilled about colors. Ten years ago I was allowed to shoot in the staff restrooms of a grocery store. I had to squeeze two actors, the entire crew, equipment and lights—all into a room measuring 2x2.5 meters. It was not possible to paint the white wall. When I was making I Hired a Contract Killer in London, I went totally berserk. I realized that I could influence these things. Before that I had always been forced to shoot at supermarkets, between packs of sausages and cold storage equipment. With Killer I realized that I could put color on the walls, how wild this can be. All you need is a color chart in your pocket… [Edward] Hopper’s influence is quite strong. I like his austerity. The clear colors. I like playing with colors, extending them beyond reality.” 
"The head is a big cooking pot in which all ingredients are haphazardly mixed: everything you have experienced, read, seen in films. Then you ladle it out with what I hope is some kind of logic. For instance, blue-gray is my basic set design color, and that is from Melville, and then I may add some red because a red teapot looks good in Ozu’s films. I just use a fire extinguisher because our tea ceremony is so underdeveloped." 
— Aki Kaurismäki
