Lewis Rice's Blog

Hi there,
I’ve created a separate blog where I’ll be posting my work, comics, illustration.  This one will keep running the documentation of my interests. If you’ve seen my work scattered about Tokes Mohammad’s timeline and have liked it, well there will be more here. If you haven’t seen any of my work yet, head on over for a few morsels.

"I’m 87 years old…I only eat so I can smoke and stay alive.. The only fear I have is how long consciousness is gonna hang on after my body goes. I just hope there’s nothing. Like there was before I was born. I’m not really into religion, they’re all macrocosms of the ego. When man began to think he was a separate person with a separate soul, it created a violent situation.
The void, the concept of nothingness, is terrifying to most people on the planet. And I get anxiety attacks myself. I know the fear of that void. You have to learn to die before you die. You give up, surrender to the void, to nothingness.
Anybody else you’ve interviewed bring these things up? Hang on, I gotta take this call….. Hey, brother. That’s great, man. Yeah, I’m being interviewed… We’re talking about nothing. I’ve got him well-steeped in nothing right now. He’s stopped asking questions.”

People say, “I’m going to sleep now,” as if it were nothing. But it’s really a bizarre activity. “For the next several hours, while the sun is gone, I’m going to become unconscious, temporarily losing command over everything I know and understand. When the sun returns, I will resume my life.” If you didn’t know what sleep was, and you had only seen it in a science fiction movie, you would think it was weird and tell all your friends about the movie you’d seen. “They had these people, you know? And they would walk around all day and be okay? And then, once a day, usually after dark, they would lie down on these special platforms and become unconscious. They would stop functioning almost completely, except deep in their minds they would have adventures and experiences that were completely impossible in real life. As they lay there, completely vulnerable to their enemies, their only movements were to occasionally shift from one position to another; or, if one of the ‘mind adventures’ got too real, they would sit up and scream and be glad they weren’t unconscious anymore. Then they would drink a lot of coffee.” So, next time you see someone sleeping, make believe you’re in a science fiction movie. And whisper, “The creature is regenerating itself.” George Carlin (via sunst0ne) Sunday Feb 16 06:03pm

Prisoners in Changi prison. Drawing by Ronald Searle. A quote from fellow prisoner Russell Braddon about Searle:
'He could barely move, and we had no food, he had dysentery, malaria and was covered in running sores and each day we expected him to die…If you can imagine something that weighs six stone or so, is on the point of death and has no qualities of the human condition that aren’t revolting, calmly lying there with a pencil and a scrap of paper, drawing, you have some idea of the difference in temperament that this man had from the ordinary human being.'

I feel ambivalent 

Here’s an animated music video, which is a tribute to my work. I was not involved in the creative process.  

I  received a message from one of the videos’ creators telling me he wanted me to be the ‘first to know’ which is strange considering I also received messages from people who said my name was not credited this morning. 

the creators claim that the video is a tribute to me, and I will say I think they did a decent job adapting my style, which I admit is quite flattering to see. Viewing the video made me feel like I drew it myself.  I’m starting to feel like Dan Clowes…

What do you think? (please be respectful)

I don’t know who would think this is flattering,  Maybe if they at least ran it by the artist before the video, but doing it after the fact is super shady. You want to flatter the artist? I would refer to FuckYouPayMe.

Small Band in a small label should know better than this. Hows a dude supposed to eat?
