To the “Pffft, art book” crowd at #cphcomics

I started this well before the weekend’s comics festival, intending to return and develop it a bit more, but now I might just leave it as it is. Torn paper mounted on more paper, 43x32cm.
Favourite comments from festival guests upon skimming When the last story is told:

Oh, it’s art.

—said with a tone genuine disappointment. The next guy grinned nervously at me as he beamed,

I’m so provoked that you call this a comic. It’s like a punch to my stomach.

All in all a nice reception from the mainstream crowd, so this may aim more for the solar plexus with its lazy minimalism. Thanks for a nice weekend!

Oh, just a bit of work on a Sunday… Caveats:
1. I can think of a few people who might take exception that I call these collage pieces “abstract”, but my art history is too rubbish for me to think of a better term. Do correct me if you will.
2. Blurry mobile photos run through a half-assed predefined filter. Sorry about that, these may turn up somewhere in proper, scanned form.
