The Shapes of Stories – Kurt Vonnegut

Seriously…. Vonnegut should be cannonised…

  1. Vonnegut’s zany and surreal world reflects the absurdity of our own and really bended my mind to different modes of thinking. His work has inspired my own visual arts for quite some time and I created a tribute illustration of the author with the help of an old typewriter. You can see it at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2011/11/happy-birthday-mr-vonnegut.html and tell me how his work and words also affected you.

      Thanks for the comment, and I keep finding just what your saying: his “zany and surreal world reflects the absurdity of our own and really bended my mind to different modes of thinking”. I think I wish I could think like he did. I wish I had his apparent effortless clarity in seeing straight through the outrageous media storms of a culture in cataclysmic denial and comment on it with incredible humour, irreverence and humanism. He just never seems to get ‘caught’ in it, and sees it so distinctly and clearly for what it is.

      And yes, I enjoyed your paintings very much. I love their wildness and zaniness and outrageousness, and we evidently share an ethos!
