Death is the Bomb (Sunday Comic)

Posted in Life, Sunday Comics by Chris on June 1, 2008

An old student of mine, Rob Rice, just graduated from an art school in Chicago (he does cartooning) and posted up his new website with samples of his work, here. I was looking through his collection and noticed that clear existentialist influence (he took the course with me). It’s noticeable in a few spots, but the animated cartoon below is the clearest, on the subject of death. For his final project for that course he made a sculpture version of this same theme, presenting the journey to death to be like riding a bomb (like in Dr. Strangelove) down to the inevitable earth (and death).
