More Cartoon Utopia Drawings

Ron Rege Jr posted some new drawings in his cartoon utopia series yesterday! It's a really fantastic project, here's a bit from his explanation of the ideas behind the project:

"At the beginning of 2008 – I started to create a series of numbered 4x6 inch drawings as an exercise - to start to flesh out ideas for a kind of 'science fiction universe' that I’ve been slowly imagining over the last few years - the idea of a 'Cartoon Utopia...'"

I love the idea and I love the drawings, Ron Reje Jr has always been a force for good in this universe, everyone should buy the Cartoon Utopia mini he just put out!

TRANZ Review by Optical Sloth

TRANZ got reviewed over at Optical Sloth, here's a quote:

"Everything looks great and William/Mark is certainly not short on imagination, I guess I’m just more old fashioned in my comics reading, what with my general preference for linear stories and all. Still, there’s a lot to be said with the 'where the hell is this going to go from here?' school of making comics, and I’m all kinds of intrigued to see what he does next and what he’s already done that might or might not be more accessible than this to the common folk."

Mawwwr TRANZ

Although I drew these pages for a show to benefit an art space, they're a continuation of the ideas I was dealing with in TRANZ:

5x7meltstructure

5x7grow

5x7meltmark

This next (and last) one is my favorite.

5x7multiply

I've started working on a new twelve-page comic that incorporates the MULTIPLY idea into a longer narrative, I'm super stoked about it! I plan to have it ready for when I come to MoCCA Fest 09 so if you're coming/tabling be prepared to trade me a zine for it!
