“Crime of the Ancient Mariner” by Brian Lance

Posted in Uncategorized by bowsprite on 2017/01/30

Just published!  “Crime of the Ancient Mariner”   by ELECTRIC LITERATURE’s weekly ‘literary oddments’ magazine, OKEY-PANKY.

I have always loved Gustave Doré’s moving etchings, and was very happy when Brian Lance asked me to illustrate his psychedelic, angst & drug-laden, navy man’s lament in his weaving of Coleridge’s poem with a U.S. Navy psych evaluation.

      Grime of the Contemporary Mariner…from clipping news: Millions of barrels of oil stuck at sea in dirty tankers…

    Great ideas and perfect implementation. But definitely not the right thing on a cold, grey january day. To admire, not to love. Huh.

    Very cool. Whimsy meets symbology meets mythology meets pharmacology. Would make a fine black light poster. Do those still exist?
