Feeling nailed? It’s ok.
Here’s some colour tests for my latest secret project :o)
"I’m in the hole… are you?"
Noel Freibert’s The Hole is this amazingly printed little book. It’s all black, no color, printed the hell out of on every page. When I say this book is as black as can be, I mean I literally didn’t know how he printed it. The illusion is thorough.
The “comics content” of the book is “dark” figuratively. The pages are all different metaphors for feeling oppressed, seeing others being harmed, living with pain… it’s heavy, it’s sad, and the imagery is tough as nails… it’s violent, shy of being gorey, but it made me wince. It really pulls the empathy out of the reader by hook or by crook. Have you felt this way before? I have. I’m glad I read this book because it gave me a way to visualize these lame feelings externally.
Noel couches his work as 100% dark. Don’t let that push you away. It’s cartoony and inventive… I think he does a cool thing of going into dark content with bleakness and humor. It’s an emotional exercise. The physical aspect of this book is a) meaningful and b) cool.

This is the cheapest possible way to buy WEIRD Magazine. These will probably never go on sale again.
Ten copies of WEIRD2 left. Originally $10, now only $5!!! This is the largest edition of a hand-made book that I’ve ever produced. The edition is labeled as 400, but in reality its more… like 440…? Xeroxed wayyy to many interiors. I’m happy that I’ve been able to move this many copies over the past two years, but now i just want them completely out of my room.
