The Body of Work by Kevin Huizenga on whatthingsdo:
Originally commissioned for the show Cartoon Polymaths at the Sheila C. Johnson Design Center, which was displayed from February 4 till April 15, 2011.
Through a mix of newspaper tearsheets, comics, puppets, posters, zines, wallpaper, toys, animated film clips, interactive media and more, Cartoon Polymaths showcased the broad ranges of several influential artists, including pioneering comic strip artist and animator Winsor McCay, illustrator and puppeteer Tony Sarg, iconic New Yorker artist Saul Steinberg, Spanish design legend Mariscal, musician, cartoonist and designer Richard McGuire, and the twenty-first century art collective Paper Rad.
So I had to take a break from Time Picnickers do some other work which means it hasn’t been updated in about four months. But, the good news: it has been updated now! And I want to make a push to finish it in the next few weeks so I can make new comics. The biggest problem with updating Time Picnickers and The Nerds of Paradise is that these endeavors make very little money (the exception being the generous donations I receive). They are more or less just something I am donating to the internet, like so many of us, so that it can attain consciousness just a few micro-seconds faster and hasten its domination over every aspects of our lives.
This means I always have to put TNOP on the back burner behind projects, art and non-art alike, that will keep me from living in a hollow log out in the woods where the wind blows real lonesome through the dead branches. I recognize this has been a common problem with mankind throughout history, artists in general, and most recently webcomic artists in particular.
My naive solution to this problem this month has been to release a run of Time Picnickers prints to sell. The prints are silk screened, signed and numbered, and limited to 50. They are also huge (17 x 22 inches) and printed on fancy paper by Baltimore Print Studios. If you would like one, I would be happy to sell one to you for $25 plus shipping which I will then immediately spin into more free comics.
In an effort at transparency. I will lay out my business plan for you which is as follows:
Sell prints for money $.
Change $ into food and shelter to sustain existence.
Change existence into more comics, essays, and novels.
One day die.
If you want to help out with that, your role in the plan would be to buy a print. But if prints are not your thing, that’s cool. I’m working on a Kickstarter for a graphic novel which should be up sometime next month.
