You and I

scan0001I wanted to express my thanks for all of the positive responses I have received over the last few days for my adaptation in comics of “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock.” All of this support has convinced me that I need to complete the remaining portion of the adaptation as soon as possible. Although I will have to balance the work with other, previously contracted drawing commitments, I plan to make rapid progress on it early in the new year. In the meantime, I will also go about looking for a publisher that would be interested in releasing the adaptation in comic book form. Failing that, I will probably try to raise the money needed to publish it independently through a crowdfunding platform such as Kickstarter. I can’t wait to get started on this! I am already working out in my mind how to depict a life measured out with coffeespoons, the butt-ends of days and ways, the sprinkled streets, and the universe, squeezed into a ball!

  2. I am thrilled that you have decided to complete it! I held my breath until I got to the end – in anticipation of “I should have been a pair of ragged claws scuttling across the floors of silent seas.”

    Thank you! I have stumbled upon this. My favourite poem, so far your interpretation matches what I have always envisioned. Thank you. Please please continue to completion! I would love to get this in published format!

    I’ll ask around to see if there is any publisher who wants to publish your work in Korean.

    I’m beginning to like the idea of adult comics – takes me right back to my pre-teen years when a group of us boys went around with boxes of comics on our bikes to swap them for unread ones…


  10. Oh, and will there be a printed version for sale?

    I was wary at the first block, but then I loved it. Good luck and looking forward to more!


  12. I’ll Kickstart the living daylights out of this.


  13. It’s an excellent work in progress, Julian. I found it so original and inspiring. Can’t wait to see the completed work!

    Am delighted that you have decided to finish it. Can’t wait to see coffee spoons and butt-ends. But also ‘I am no Hamlet’…. and ‘Do I dare to eat a peach?’

    I’ve shared this with my circle of friends and their response has been overwhelming, as was mine. Keep up the great work. Kickstarter is good, but tough. I just did an interview with a photographer who is on his second campaign (the first project becoming one of the top ten funded photography projects of all time). He as some sound advice, so you can read it if you have the time. I look forward to the next installment.
