August 2018 News

August 14th, 2018

The future has arrived; after twenty-six months and seventeen days a new update to this site. This blog post. I’m not going to write a long story or give boring excuses as to why I stopped updating the site. It’s not important. What is important is the future.

2018 is the tenth anniversary of Drawingsilence.com. It’s strange to think how much I have changed, a tectonic shift has occurred and I feel like this site was made by a different person.

So what now? I’m not sure. The Abstract Comics volume two didn’t happen. No explanation was offered, things happen, that’s life.

I’ve considered in the past few months taking the site down.

I do know Art is still really important to me. But unfortunately modernity swallows us up.

we will see what the future holds.

March 2016 News

March 8th, 2016

The big news this month is, I have sent my submission in for the new volume of abstract comics coming out.

In fact submission deadline is March 15

You can follow progress of the new volume 2 at the Abstract comics blog.

Also I found a comic from 2011 a ready to go on my hard drive which I hadn’t posted. Strange. It will be up over the next two months.

April 2015 News

April 2nd, 2015

Hello everyone there will be no comics posted on either Good Friday or Easter Monday. I’m not sure when the next comics update will be; probably before Friday the 10th. I’m not planning to post as much this month compared with the last two months.

March 2015 News

March 11th, 2015

At this stage I will be continuing to post twice a week (Yay!) and will be posting more from the Shadow series.

I’m feeling a bit more confident after a long period of very low motivation. So I’m looking forward to more art.

February 2015 News

February 1st, 2015

Good news all the internet spiders out there. Drawingsilence will be updating Mondays and Fridays for all of February! Eight comics in one month, amazing! In fact its been a whole year since so many comics have been published in one month. Well I hope you are all as excited as I am about this.

It also seems I have a backlog of comics from 2012 onwards, so expect to see unseen old comics and brand spanking new comics this year. Time to warm up the scanner.

2015 is here

January 2nd, 2015

Well its the second day into the new year. Hopefully this coming year will be better than the last, oh dear this is the second time in a row I’d hoped for a better year…

So I guess I shouldn’t make any promises I can’t keep, like making art regularly, posting comics more often and updating my site. Haha. Well one can only do ones best.

I was going to do a retrospective of the comics I posted last year, but looking through the archives I notice I only published five different comics.

Well I will link to my favourite from last year: The Black Sun

I’ve just realised 2015 will be the eighth year running for Drawingsilence.com! WOW 8 years!

 

Time does not exist or 2013 in review and 2014 begins

January 1st, 2014

Yes its the first day of a new year (well if you follow the Gregorian Calender anyway). 2013 was a bit of a downer for Drawingsilence.com.

I won’t bore you with the reasons for it nor will this post the tired Cliché of the artist giving excuses for not posting.

So instead I’ll be posting some statistics for the year.

67 Comics Posts down 31 from last year

6 Blog posts down 20 from last year

Top 5 referring sites:

1. Facebook

2. Facebook

3. Hicksvillecomics.com

4. Diepopular.tumblr.com

5. Facebook

Thank you very much Hickvillecomics and Diepopular for sending traffic my way.

My most viewed posts where all of celebrities, so I won’t be linking to any of them.

On to…

2014

First post of the year will be this Friday, January 3rd. I’m intending to make 2014 a better year for Drawingsilence than the last one.

here is to the future.

Found this Tumblr of images of Serge Lutens most well known work from the 1980s. Amazing; Wow! Don’t know if its official or fan tumblr. Finally some pretentious Shiseido Ad’s that he worked on.

Metal is Truth / Art and Metal

April 20th, 2011

Fantastically interesting article about metal/black metal, art and culture.

Some of the good bits:

In the art world, the citation of black metal serves as a negative symbol. Metal produces signs that are not meant to appeal to the masses. The artist who introduces black metal aesthetics thus refers to a phenomenon that is considered to be taking place beyond the consciousness of the viewer. The artist becomes a messenger between the creative elite of viewers ‘paralyzed by irony’ and a dark subculture of abject and archaic symbols. Here, the contradistinction between good and bad (beautiful and ugly) has been almost unnoticeably replaced by that of good and evil.

Is metal the music of this ‘national emergency’, the sovereign that is lawlessness incarnate, the Leviathan?

During ‘grindcore’, the technique of metal was used to transform punk into a metaphysical protest against a nameless total dominion, with the near apocalypse of Chernobyl, the deplorable living conditions in ‘the dirty old town’ under Margaret Thatcher, and the threat of nuclear war between America and the Soviet Union being thrown in as small change. Black metal opted for the encryption of logotype and music and a further elaboration of hate, Satanism and heathenism, and after awhile, action was suited to word. People got killed.

The illegible black metal logo developed analogously with typographic forms of encryption and secrecy that have recently been applied to the Internet, such as the so-called ‘Captcha’: the ‘Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart’.

From Kiss to Burzum, black metal is the subcultural development of an aesthetic of evil
