untitled comic books project WIP

This is work in progress from a sort-of-commission I got from some friends of mine responsible for the Courtauld Gallery's East Wing Collection, a biennial student-curated contemporary art show. It's an elaboration on some earlier experimentation, where I used a scalpel to cut out every instance of text in a comic book.

They're hopefully just going to be displayed in cabinets by themselves at the exhibition. I considered the idea of making prints from the double-page spreads, but I prefer the idea of having them physically in a gallery. If all goes to plan, the exhibition should start around next February.
