EXPERIMENT: Abstraction

An experiment in abstraction using a page from my major project 4AM.
Reading the story through the lights in a night club scene. Does it still read the same story? What else does it suggest? Other meanings? Or is it simply more obscure and therefore more interesting? I think it is indeed quite interesting and it's giving me more ideas for where else this could go.

Not much is happening in the the actual comic page. I just wanted to see if you would read the same thing happening or if you understood it differently ion some way because of it.

The Cat's Dead.

The Times: "Wes Anderson's ... movies, such as Rushmore and The Royal Tenenbaums, tend to drive audiences into two camps: those who see them as emotionally dead baubles wrapped in self-regarding irony; and those who see them as the apotheosis of film craftsmanship. The Darjeeling Limited is hardly going to bridge that gap". The Times 

I did a proper comic drawn out from a script i wrote and with my own characters. Using the slow pacing, long pauses, emotionless expressions and sentences that go nowhere of Wes Anderson. Towards the end it's meant to turn into more Stanley Kubrik in feel; With flashing images of close up faces and use of red.

Did a more finished painting using some recurring themes from Wes Anderson iconography and my own characters.
