Film Noir

Something new I've been fooling with -- sequences of film noir drawings, made by watching a movie on DVD or TiVo, pausing it when I see an image that strikes me, and making a sketch, using my direct-to-computer printmaking technique. I'm not so much trying to tell the story of the movie as to create a coherent and striking group of images. Here's the first group, simply titled "Film Noir" because at the time I did them, I didn't know I was going to be doing more, and now I can't remember what movie they came from (might have been The Big Heat):

...any poet or writer of any genre that can sketch clearly or clumsily -insofar it illustrates or challenge deeper mentations should have been almost fulfil the creative beauty whether he or she is selfishly or selflessly poetising for arts sake or something else....i wish i can sketch meaningfully not really as atravelled visual art works -just enough to decorate my ineer permissions now & then either for healing ecologically or mere literary bending to the scruff of the neck-gbemitujani mst191107
