Cover of TLP (Tacky Little Pamphlet) by IUOMA members Rebecca Guyver (Suffolk, UK) and Carina Granlund (Petsmo, Finland)
May 29, 2015 - The recent collaborative “doodle” concept, created by Diane Keys (Illinois, USA), has created a bit of a sensation in the Eternal Network. A number of these doodle pieces have found their way online and have proven to be popular.
Always the over-achiever, Rebecca Guyver is producing outstanding doodle collabs. She has developed a colorizing technique that makes them look spectacular! I am immensely fortunate that she sent me TWO amazing new TLPs (Tacky Little Pamphlets) bursting with FAB work. Of course I will share them with you. I will document them in two entries. This first TLP is the result of a collaboration between Rebecca and Carina Granlund of Finland.
Rebecca Guyver calls these pieces “doodle therapy,” but I contend they have evolved into comics. Because the subject never strays far from DKult, I am calling them D-Komix.
You can click to enlarge. Carina Granlund is a FAB illustrator with a love for comics. This project clearly gave her an opportunity to shine.
Because I am absolutely gushing over Carina Granlund’s contributions, do not – in any way – infer that I find Rebecca Guyver’s contributions lacking. This TLP, I believe, succeeds splendidly due to the wonderful blending of the talents of the two artists. They complement each other. I recognize some of the images Rebecca created, and they are foundational to the piece.
Those colors are popping!
I like these pages (above) especially.
I also call them comics because I think I spot the kernel of a narrative, not always linear or logical, but a story emerging.
Excellent back cover (above)! She also included this card in the mailing:
And the new DKULT(UK) stamp! Destined to be a classic:
Deepest thanks and congratulations to Rebecca Guyver and Carina Granlund. Stay tuned for Part II and another totally FAB TLP!
