Behind the Uncomics anthology: Laurel Lynn Leake

Uncomics anthology contributor Laurel Lynn Leake posted the following to tumblr:

UNCOMICS are here!

The international comics art magazine C’est Bon Anthology’s latest issue is out, and it’s a gorgeous collection of abstract comics, featuring yours truly! are they art? are they comics? YES!

It’s been exhilarating seeing how all the other contributors uniquely interpret the title concept of un/comics, breaking down the “sequence” of “sequential art” into abstract, poetic forms. For own my piece “Pull Quote”, I traced layered magazine spreads with colored pencil and blurry alcohol-based markers, twisting and pulling the design “architecture” into taffy, and I had a blast.

Laurel continues, “if you’re curious about how abstract art gets made, I’ve got a post up for my patrons with the pencils for this piece”, so go and support her work!
