Here's a page out of Product Two's Strip. It's a bit more abstract than some of our other contributions and there are some great little gags tucked away in the strip as a whole. The subtle banter between the two characters is great, so I'm sure you'll like this one once it's printed as a complete strip in our book! I only wish I could show you more...

'Here is an idea for the cover of your book. I hope the sketch isn't too rough, basically it's a happy businessman walking among others unhappy businessmen. I guess he went fed-up with his job and decided to live a better/crazier life symbolized by the paper-hat on his head. It's a kind of weird idea, tell me if you think it's funny or if you want something else. It might not fit the tone of the book, I don't know. You tell me.
I love this, it's a really nice concept. I'm sure it'll help our little book fly off the shelves. Let's run with it. Thanks!

'Hi! This is my first post. Inspiration finally came, so here are a few rough studies I made. My storyboard is also finished (but unshowable). My character is good at unfolding and taking life away from paper cranes :) The comic is going to be 8 pages long. I hope to post more soon!'
Looking forward to that, Christine!

'stop press - my latest solo show is now open...
Searching For The Perfect Line – new work by Dave the Chimp
Vicious Gallery. July 26th – August 16th 2008
Kleine Freiheit 46, 22767 Hamburg - St. Pauli. Germany
The title of this show relates primarily to skateboarding. A "line" is a route a skateboarder takes through a skatepark or other urban landscape, making tricks along the way. Looking for lines, getting them wired, then looking for new ones, is a constant aim, and the Chimp, as a skateboarder for over 20 years, is still constantly searching. This search takes place not only in the skatepark, but also in the studio.
The title also relates to the act of writing graffiti, and looking for flowing lines and letterforms that are quick and stylish to paint. In a lesser way, the Chimp is also searching for a new way of living, having recently quit London, his home for 12 years, and moved to Berlin, and also searching for a wife, considering the curves of a woman's body the "greatest lines God ever drew".
The exhibition will focus on new work created specifically for this show, plus experiments from the last few years - exploring the aforementioned themes, especially typographic elements, the curves of skateparks, and flowing/one line drawings. Though these ideas and pieces have been forming over a number of years, this is the first time the Chimp has presented them in an exhibition.
Also on display will be two new animated video pieces. The first of these, "Self Portrait, July 2008", was created in the Chimps living space, which is also his office and studio, and the centre of his world since moving to Berlin in April 2008.
The second piece, "One Line Is All You Need", shows the creation and erasure of simple, yet surprisingly clever, characters drawn with just one line. The Chimp developed these as a quick way of creating images, similar to the speed and style involved in a traditional graffiti "tag". Alongside the video piece will be the painting created to make the animation. This draws attention to the layers of graffiti we see in our major cities, and also, ultimately, to the "buff" – the removal or covering of graffiti by city employees and property owners.
A 40 page photocopy fanzine, showing work created in the streets and studio, is also available.'

"Here's a concept art for my piece. It's about a girl who's so good at paper-folding that the things she makes comes to life...
I'm not sure if this is exactly what I'll do (right now the plot's a bit long & complicated), but this piece was crazy fun. I'd love to have a rhyming narrative. We'll see."

The Paper project aims to be a great collection of comic strips based around the given word 'paper'. By the end, we should have a lovely book which we plan to print on 100% recycled paper.
Any news, sketches and other relevant information will be posted on this public production blog. Exciting times!
