An Alphabetical Ballad of Carnality

$14.95
✔ In print

This ABC for sinners spotlights creator David Sandlin's alter ego, recounting his lurid life in rhyming couplets: a "sintamental education" in 26 easy steps, from Adultery to Zealotry. This is the fifth Blab storybook, a series showcasing sequential artists from Monte Beauchamp's annual Blab anthology. Sandlin's storybook composes what can best be described as narrative painting, taking advantage of the way in which painting (art) allows the artist to bring together the conscious and the subconscious, the rational and the irrational, the realistic and the dreamlike.
