I’m looking into doing a comic with parts that are representational, but I want to use panels/pages that are more abstract to make more of an emotional response than a logical one.
Could anyone please direct me to some abstract comic artists??
I feel like…
If you googled “abstract comics” already then you’re definitely aware of this book already; I have looked through it, it is good, and also in the MCAD library. There is also a corresponding blog, which is a good source.
Many well known cartoonists have done abstract comics. Check out these examples by Moebius. (Also be sure to click the ‘non-figurative painting’ tag on that blog.)
In terms of abstract integrating with representational, check out Connor Willumsen, in particular the first part of his comic, Everett. Just scroll on that linked page.
I couldn’t find an example online very easily, but if you can find a copy of Joseph Lambert’s short comic Turtle, Keep it Steady!, it represents types of sound really well with abstract stuff. I believe it’s collected in one of the recent Best American Comics anthology books.
There are plenty, plenty more, I just can’t think right now.
