Grim? Nuh-Uh!

Last Wednesday (January 24th) I said I'd bring you inside of The Barclay at 11 East 48th St., um... then I didn't. Okay... so here's the payoff. Now you see why, on their visits to Metropolis, four generations of Byrnes have hoteled at the Barclay. Questions?

You certainly drive your point with these comic strips. I wonder, is there any other form of art that is so expressive? The power lies in the combination of images, in that kaleidoscopic view of a place or a situation. At that point of already heightened awareness, text can drive the image in all directions. Brilliant.

Thanks Andre. I find the Comcs format addictive. But I'm trying not to overuse it. Seems like a gimmic, even though it lets me combine a number of so-so images into one much more powerful image. I'm beginning to actually think about the format when I'm on a shoot... this one, and the other I did in NYC a couple of days before this one - I took those pictures with the comics formatting in mind.

Thanks for sharing.
