Bob Schofield is a writer and artist who makes strange words and art. He first showed up on my radar when theNewerYork sent me a digital file of his book The Inevitable June, which I lamely described as “the kind of thing that we need more of; not a gimmick or a…

WAX CROSS BY TIN CAN FOREST

Tin Can Forest (aka Pat Shewchuk and Marek Colek)—whose Koyama Press debut Baba Yaga and the Wolf was nominated for the 2011 Doug Wright Award for Best Emerging Talent, and won the duo the 2011 Joe Shuster Award for Outstanding Comic Book Cartoonist—present their latest book Wax Cross. The artists describe Wax Cross as “an alchemical folktale set in the twilight of the modern age, when the moon has devoured the sun, the mechanical ocean has evaporated into silence, and the decaying corpse of electric current sleeps eternally in a casket of orange lichen. Featuring a cast of characters as familiar as the faded Polaroids in a photo album salvaged from the flooded basement of a condemned church, Wax Cross presents illustrated transcriptions of ectoplasmic revelation, fibrous and grainy folklore, and unbridled bestial merriment, accompanied by textual incantations and occult decoration.”

8.5 x 11 inch sheets of bristol board, crowquill and ink. Eventually, watercolored. We liked watermelons more than honeydews.

 Portrait Of The Artist As A Young Doog.

 ” Go-Go Gophers watch ‘em go go go, 
oh Happy Days, dontcha know, know, no, 
here comes the Colonel and his Sergeant, 
on their horses, a roarin’ and a chargin’, 
up the hill and down the mountain,
 what did the Indian say? ”

This short 12 page comic will explain a great deal about why I am the way I am. I might even color it. Wiffle Bat Yellow is one of my favorite colors.

Page one of a work in progress. It’s all written out and lettered, and the images are roughed out in pencil. I’m trying to crank out the inking and have it done by Sunday.

50 pages into this story. I’m thinking about shoujo manga and Mondrian, trying to use color and paneling/page layout as two central elements of my storytelling. I haven’t been able to get much drawing done this week, which is frustrating when I feel like I’m moving towards the end, like I’m on the precipice of completing a sentence or finishing a thought but still maddeningly far away. This one will probably just go online and not be printed, but we’ll see.

1. Raiding my parents basement for books. I want to take it all, but it’s expensive. (Note, these are all books I haven’t brought to Japan, so my parents have kept them for 11 years so far.)

2. Books. Binky Brown in particular, I want to reread.

3. Some floppies, lots of Canadian content (not all of those).

4. blab, both the big and small size. Amazing graphic design in those.

5. Some Ed Brubaker written and drawn comics, before he became the guy who wrote the story that became the base of the best super hero movie out there.

6. SPX books. These always made me want to create.

7. Drawn & Quarterlys. Really great quality books.

8. More floppies. I had fun when I could almost get a book weekly.

9. Weirdos. A lot of these books were either cover price or less 15 years after print. Crazy.
