DELUSIONAL The Graphic and Sequential Work of Farel Dalrymple
Did you happen to make it to the DELUSIONAL book release event held at Floating World Comics this last Thursday, December 5th? No? That’s too bad. Well, I took a couple of pictures, I know it’s not much, but it gives you a visual idea of what happened.
As you can see, Farel Dalrymple was there, and he brought along some examples of his works. There were some original pages on display/for sale, as well as a number of prints. Of course there were copies of his new book, DELUSIONAL, and since Farel was there, he was available to do a little sketch in your book, and he may’ve even written a lovely little personal message to you as well. There were some small hand made booklets of Delusional Rejex, works that didn’t end up in main book, with hand pulled Last Astronaut silk screen covers.
What was really interesting to see was the collection of sketchbooks on display that some of the material from DELUSIONAL came from. There were maybe 10 of them available to look through, all different shapes and sizes and ages with pen sketches and watercolor work and notes and different lengths and styles of adhesive tapes. If it’s any consolation, these sketchbooks are still being displayed over at Floating World for a little while, and I bet there are other items still there for sale, if you get a chance.
