Before delving into his theories of “visual language,” Neil Cohn spent several years testing the artistic potential of sequential art. These diverse and often experimental visual poems, short stories, and vignettes range in style from painstakingly detailed cross-hatching to broad cartoony strokes — from pen and ink to digitally integrated line-art and photographs.
Meditations reflects the growth of a young artist finding his way through a time of introspection, discovery, and creative development. These works tread a journey of artistic exploration into philosophy, religion, love, childhood, and the medium of sequential art to form a collection that defies placement in traditional categories of literature. They are a voyage into the imagination, and the possibilities of words and pictures.
