"Times I Tried Bo be A Hipster" by Lev Yilmaz from his Tales of Mere Exitstence
Times I Tried To Be A Hipster - Tales of Mere Existence - by Lev Yilmaz "For anyone who ever joined a counterculture because they were looking for something, and didn't find it. (Part two of the mini series "Perpetual Identity Crisis")"
Lev Yilmaz is the creator of Tales of Mere Existence comic series. Lev draws his cartoons on paper attached to glass and places the camera on the other side. The paper is back lit to make the cartoons show through. This allows the audience to see the comic appear without seeing Lev's hand or pen. Well sort of. I have been able to see hits of his hand. Lev got the idea for the technique from the 1956 movie “The Mystery Of Picasso”. In this film Picasso's paintings appear from the other side. Lev writes, draws, films, edits, and narrates his videos. The themes often touch on various aspects of his life. Some are somewhat bleak but he offers a gentle humor.
I believe story telling is an art form and blogging is a medium in which to share stories and ideas. Within this blog I hope to cover a spectrum of topics. From the serious to the silly. Here you will read my views and inquiries about subjects such as feminism, other various socio-political issues, psychology, spirituality, sexuality, and general interests such as film, art and music. You will also be exposed to my obsession with cupcakes, tea, books, Hello Kitty, and quirky day to day journeys. I enjoy learning from others as I am constantly attempting to introspect, grow and evolve. During this process I will be jotting down musings on this blog. Pull up a comfy chair and a spot of tea and join me!
