What's Carousel? It's the comics/cartoon/sequential art slide show produced by the multitalented R. Sikoryak. With each show, Bob (R.) invites a mix of artists to present and read their work. Some of the work has musical accompaniment, some artists invite friends to do voices with them, sometimes there is live drawing. It's never the same group of people and always a great show!
Back in the old days, Carousel was actually performed with slide projectors or various types of overhead projectors using slides, filmstrips, transparencies, or what-have-yous. Now it's typically done with some kind of presentation hard- and software.
Last week, I premiered the performance of my newest mini Pictorial Anatomy of 007 at the Asbury Park Comicon. If you didn't make it to New Jersey, don't worry! You can catch me in a Carousel performance as a part of the Remix Festival:

A DESCRIPTION OF THE FESTIVAL
The RE/Mixed Media Festival is a celebration of collaborative art-making and creative appropriation. It’s the artists’ contribution to the ongoing conversation about remixing, mashups, copyright law, fair use, and the freedom of artists to access their culture in order to add to and build upon it. RE/Mixed Media Festival IV will be held on April 26-27, 2014 at The New School, in cooperation with the School of Media Studies, and Parsons The New School for Design; and at CultureHub, in NYC's East Village.
Other RE/Mixed events all day, Saturday & Sunday. The Festival schedule is posted on line at http://remixnyc.com/2014/schedule/
ANATOMY OF 007 AT ASBURY PARK
Here's a photos (taken by Danny Hellman) of the Asbury Park Carousel...
Somewhat unusual in that we used a monitor instead of projections.
The Pictorial Anatomy of 007 was one of my best sellers at Asbury Park. How do you get your mitts on a copy? You can purchase them from me at the Carousel show, and I will try to get them offered online within the next week or so.
