When he wasn’t taking a smoke break on the back porch, Jim was helping his alter-ego Chimera finish up her magnum opus comic book: Chim’s Pookarama. Among its various page-turning adventures is a tour through the history of comics through numerous drawing quotes of famous comic book illustrators.
A overnight roadtrip to visit James Beoddy, meet and photograph two Lindsay Gallery artists, and see their two-person show at the gallery. Thanks very much to Duff Lindsay for arranging the photo shoots.
I had seen single Morris Jackson drawings twice at the Ohio State Fair (in 2008 and 2011), and was interested to see more of his somewhat bewildered-looking, but whimsical figures make their way through the world Morris has created around them. After seeing my website, Morris ‘warned’ me that he is a pretty normal-looking fellow, living in a pretty conventionally-decorated house, but to me showing a seeming disconnect between the artist/environment and their work is just part of the documentary process.
