Recap: Comics Making Studio at Artisphere

On the evening of Thursday, September 12, 2013 Joe Carabeo and Carolyn Belefski collaborated on the chalkboard wall in the Works in Progress Gallery for their artist residency at "Comics Making Studio" exhibit at Artisphere in Arlington, Virginia.

For their experiment called "Animal Chronicles" Joe came up with an animal and an object, then Carolyn drew each combination on the wall - for example, Fox/Harmonica or Cat/Lawnmower. In about three hours, twenty combinations and sketches were created. Each drawing was only up for a brief time period, then erased over and a new sketch appeared in the same place on the chalk wall. Click on the photograph above to see an animated GIF of all the sketches and progress.

The exhibit space also featured original art for Magic Bullet, Washington, DC's comics newspaper. Attendees were also encouraged to create their own comic and had access to take the past two issues of Magic Bullet home with them.

Thanks to Matt Dembicki and Evan Keeling for organizing the show and thanks to Joe Carabeo for photographing the art.
