Public Domain Retro Comic Pop Art

RND/ to consider pop art posters based on nicely cheesy, public domain retro comics

mostly 2688×3840, .jpg, cleaned up in Gimp

Notes arising: this project took a little too long to complete for my liking; along the way, I found myself thinking that making art is deathly boring. Thing is, I’ve not the imagination to think up anything better to do with dead time – this strange half life, somehow as-yet not quite lived. Almost like I’ve been waiting for something all my life (perhaps the end of dead, dull time and useless thought itself.) That this itself might constitute the shaky basis of a form of plain bad conceptual practice I term “Big Science” – that one day I might find myself caught in its constant, unending churning cycle / hamster wheel of pathetic Research and Development. Flat, dull days pass by in a smeary blur of slow, soul-cushing sameness. Faded comics of yesterday, swirling around one’s feet in the forgotton megacities of tomorrow
