What Do You Know - Whiskey Radish

What Do You Know - Whiskey Radish


"This leaflet is part of a larger work, ii° (pronounced “diminished minor second”), a meta-poetic, loosely-sequential, cartoon story that centers around two people, you and Char, taking a very long walk in a large city. Along the way, Char asks questions about music, poetry, and the experience of being a cartoon (“cartoon life”).  You encounter a variety of characters, who enter and exit, as if in a dream. From time to time, something akin to fragments of a fairy-tale interrupt the story, as do friendly public service announcements. It’s a tale of trash, rats, cats, homeless folk, and scattered unimportant objects, none of which advance any kind of plot; instead, they serve to conjure an inspiration, illuminating another “brand” of life, similar to the quotidian, only more hallucinatory and absurd—it’s a side of reality that I believe we can all tap into, if we wish. The book is inspired in part by Breton’s Nadja."
