What are you thinking right now?
This brilliant comic by Richard McGuire appeared in RAW Vol. 2 No. 2 in 1990. Since I first saw it - twenty-three years ago (?!!!) - it’s often come to mind, both as a wonderful comic and a fun reflection on how we think.


McGuire is amazing. If you dig this, be sure to check out his classic comic, “Home.”

This film has another way of using abstraction, by putting so much in the dark. Some scenes are so minimal that you need the sound to complete the image, otherwise you’re lost. In my research for designing the film I came across the work of Félix Vallotton, a Swiss artist from the turn of the century. In his graphic work he often did a trick of black on black, a person wearing black against a black background. I liked the way your mind would complete the image. I knew this was a key to how to approach the film.
