Luna Park Comic

Luna Park Comic

Hey folks, be sure to check out the new graphic guide to the Oakland neighborhood in Pittsburgh. Put together by the Toonseum and Harold Behar, the standard-size comic book features local comic artists both young and old, including myself, Andy Scott. The artists were charged with the task of illustrating a unique place in Oakland of their choosing. Some stories in the anthology are simply historical/informative, while others offer an introspective/personal experience, and others still chose to represent their place with humor and poignant remarks.

I chose to share a bit of information concerning Luna Park, a place lost to progress and failure. It was an amusement park built at the turn of the 1900s on what is now the intersections of Craig, Baum and Centre in North Oakland. There is much to note about this piece of history, what is most interesting is looking at it as a great example of the fantastic visions that American entertainment tycoons possessed in the midst of the Industrial Revolution. Pittsburg’s Luna Park was the first Frederick Ingersoll built, in the years following he built several similar parks across the US and the world, after a short 4 years the park in Pittsburgh was closed due to bankruptcy and the new competing trolley park in town, Kennywood.

My original interest in Luna Park stemmed from my nostalgic desire to have experienced it’s grandiose either in the past or in the Pittsburgh landscape I know today. To check out pictures of the park just Google Image search “Luna Park Pittsburgh”

Primary Delusionary Experience

 

A few weeks ago I particpated, from home, in 24 hour comics day. The challenge is to write, draw, ink and finish a 24 page, completed comic in 24 hours. As you can see I didn’t quite meet success in this challenge as I only completed 14 pages total, just 10 shy of the goal. I slacked a little and slept more than I should have. Nevertheless I’m satisfied with what I worked up and decided to end the story in just 14 pages, which I think is still just as effective as the original script. The 10 pages I left out weren’t really necessary and didn’t add much overall to the success of the tale.

As you read this comic it may strike as non-sequitor, however I was working on it with the intention of depicting the dream phenomena known as “Primary Delusionary Experience” or “False Awakening”. This phenomenon was made popular as a central theme in the recent Hollywood blockbuster, “Inception”, but also it has been used as literary device in various other TV shows and works of printed fiction. “Inception” focused on the dream phenomenon with a twist of science fiction and espionage. What I attempted to show here is a bit more playful and focuses on the meaning of the dream phenomenon itself and also the possibility of the experience revealing to us a past or alternative life we have lived or are currently living.

ANDROMEDA QUARTERLY IS HERE!!!

Andromeda has transcended it’s hay day as a monthly comics publication and is now dawning a new age as a Quarterly Comics Anthology. The very 1st issue as a quarterly will be available for reading as well as purchasing at the Copacetic Comics Company in Polish Hill. This will be a seriously casual event, mostly chatting about comics and Andromeda in particular. A handful of the contributors will be there as well as Andy, editor and publisher of Andromeda, to answer questions or talk shop. Copies of the new Quarterly will be on sale for only $5 each, which is a steal as the book is 40 pages mostly in color and wrapped up nicely in a snug perfect binding. So swing on by 3138 Dobson Street next Thursday starting at 6pm for an evening with the burgeoning Pittsburgh’s comics and cartooning superstars!

New Pittsburgh Zine Fair Logo

As some of you may know, Little Tired Press has been helping out with promotional art & design for the Pittsburgh Zine Fair since it's creation in 2011. We didn't have a logo last year so this year we decided it would be a good idea to brand it with something. This is what we came up with in the end. Look out for more information and updates for the 2012 Zine Fair on the website; www.pghzinefair.com

Wild Kindness Records Patch

Here’s a little sneak peak at a patch design that I came up with for Wild Kindness Records. In the coming months we’ll be making a slew of new merchandise for the label in preparation for an East Coast tour featuring WK musicians and visual artists including myself/Little Tired. Starting in March I’ll be out there on the road selling comics, prints and other creative curiosities in these cities; New York, Philadelphia, Columbus, Youngstown, Pittsburgh (of course) and possibly Chicago. Woot-woot!
