1. New avatar

    19 April 2016 by Adam

    The self portrait I have been using on this site and elsewhere online was getting old. The original line drawing is from the comic Abstraction that was published in Wonderful Comics #10 in 2008.

    Since then, I have changed my hair style and I started wearing glasses more often. More importantly, I have aged quite a bit since I made the first version.

    In short it was time for an update. Below you can see a few of the steps in the process.

    Old Gods Rule print by Adam Boman

    I designed this t-shirt print as a birthday present to my old friend Fredrik. It’s Cthulhu surfing near the sunken island of R’lyeh – an Elder God spoof of the Old Guys Rule brand.

    Now you can buy your own Lovecraftian surf wear at Redbubble.

  4. Introspection by Adam Boman

    17 December 2014 by Adam

    Close your eyes and relax every muscle of your body. Sense how your limbs are growing heavier and heavier. Focus all your attention on your sensory input: The sound of your breathing, the dark red color behind your eyelids.

    Now leave these sensations behind and instead consider the purely cognitive aspects of your mind. Attempt to make your mind blank. Let your thoughts drift by like tiny leaves in a watercurrent.

    Select one thought and study it more closely. See the complex structure of symbols, connected in a web of associations. Look even closer. And closer... Finally you reach the machine code that runs your binary mind.

     

    This comic was published in the international comic art magazine C’est Bon Anthology volume 22. The theme of that issue was singularity, so my comic is inspired by the technological singularity.

  5. Abstract comics: Alva (for Carsten Nicolai)

    27 January 2014 by Adam

    Last year I went to a concert with Carsten Nicolai a.k.a. Alva Noto. It was a great show with abstract electronic music at unexpectedly loud volume and accompanied by amazing visuals.

    I was reminded of the Alva Noto-comic I made in 2011:

  8. Seriefestival och babian.se nr 21

    Teckning av Mikael Sol

    Nu är det dags för Stockholm internationella seriefestival (SIS). Vi på babian.se är som vanligt på plats och ser fram mot en spektakulär helg.

    Festivalen och dess föregångare Small Press Expo var ett av Kristiina Kohlemainens stora projekt, så det känns mycket ledsamt att hon inte är med oss längre.

    Det senaste numret av babian.se som kom nyligen tillägnas hennes minne.
