This work is the result of a lifetime of comic reading and collecting. Each of the images has been cut (chain-sawed), copied, redrawn, and combined, creating a visual narrative that touches upon a few major themes that are of perennial interest to art educators: the creative impulse, the relationship between psychological states of mind and artistic production, and the visualization of symbolic violence. The work attempts to offer numerous visual and verbal points of entry, but refuses to provide clear answers as to the overall meaning of the work, if indeed there is one. Art educators who are interested in issues raised by comics and graphic novels may be familiar with many of the images, and with this type of multilinear narrative. They should be concerned with the history of these artforms, and how they present the puerile and the profane, often with no concern for the pedagogical implications of such forms of creativity.
