Had the pleasure of meeting Anna Zvyagintseva, Nikita Kadan, Sasha Burlaka, Vova Kuznetsov of REP/Hudrada & other projects yesterday. A welcome edge of aristocratic venom & sharp humor. Presented here in a pixellated veil.
Hard at work carving slides for the cover of “The Gallows Are Busy.”
We are tending to the completion of our upcoming publication, The Gallows Are Busy. A scrap heap publication compiled of Medusa stares, inert screens, vampiric cinema, stasis and sleeping beauties. A nod to suspension.
The Gallows’ contributors include: The Anti-Banality Union, Bradley Eros, Chris Maggio, the Et Al collective, the ghost of OBERIU’s Leonid Lipavsky, and Louie Dean Valencia-García on Movida Madrilena and his own “arrebato” or rapture in front of the works of Eduardo Haro Ibars, amongst others.
A small taste of the Movida Madrileña’s comic artists, a scene that nourished our early inspiration for “The Gallows Are Busy,” the Spanish filmmaker and Pedro Pan Ivan Zulueta. Goya’s backside, fractured commerce, electric stomachs & a healthy dose of heroin.
The cover of Eduardo Haro Ibars first book put out by the legendary imprint La Banda de Moebius, and drawings by David Asenjo, and Rubiales.

A night organized by the Cicada Press (Matt Whitley & Anastasiya Osipova) and Et Al collective in memoriam of the suicidal moth souls suspended before the ray of the projector and unable to turn away.
We will be unveiling an upcoming zine by Cicada Press on the subjects of rapture, sleeping beauty tales, and enchanted kingdoms inside crystal coffins and old cinemas. All splayed against a luminous background of films about the people who fell pray to the light.
