Me and Matt are working on a revamp of the blog with a new format and lots of new Walden-inspired art. We’re hoping to make the whole thing more “focused” on what we are currently working on – the Walden story arc. I’m also planning on having some Dampurs Kline web comic stuff up in the future (semi-Walden related). We really want to claim our iconography and brand and a redesign is long overdue. The Aftermath project is very complex and we have to reorganize the website in order to more intuitively showcase our ideas. We’re hoping to have everything set up by the end of February.

This is something that I began recently. It’s a riff on cartoon icons while revealing the true character behind Walden’s friendly, corporate facade.

Here is the next picture. I did it about a week ago but then did nothing for the next 5 or 6 days. I attempted to make it look finished today. It’s called “Inheritance.”

I tried to make it about having certain survival tools (hunting), but being ill prepared to face the sort-of chaotic issues that are entirely out of our hands (the wildfire in the distance). I guess the idea stems from the irony that we unknowingly inherit massive problems that take whole communities to tackle, but we are mainly trained as self-interested “hunters.” Sometimes we get to the top of the hunting grounds – like this guy did – only to see that it’s “too late.”

I know, how “deep.” Haha.

Hopefully I’ll get some more aftermath stuff up here soon.
