Los Angeles-based artist David Jien’s epic narrative is about the chronicles of an allegorical future detailing a battle in which human and anthropomorphic beings continue the struggle against a race of balloon-headed creatures and cold-blooded reptilian overlords who seek world domination.

Taking inspiration from the infinite possibilities of science fiction, the isometric perspective and narrative geography of Nintendo and Chinese scroll paintings, the eroticism of Japanese pillow books and the limitless transformations of graffiti, Jien has crafted these intensely detailed scenarios in colored pencil on paper.

The Good, the Bad, and the Thursday: “Herculean” studio version

Posted from The Citrus Report

A long while back, we used this section for a live version of the epic “Herculean” by a little band of Damon Albarn’s called The Good the Bad and the Queen. Now, we think that live version is good, but the studio version is one of the great songs of the past few years, just a beautifully soaring progression of post-20th century paranoia. Enjoy.
