  1. Spectacular! I love this one, Lin. I love the bodiliness of it. And those offset central panels add such a dynamic quality.
    I know I’ve said it before, and I’m sure I’ll say it again, but your work is fascinating. You can lose yourself in the levels.

    • Thank you, John. I am pleased that I can now achieve the line and depth of detail that is equal to (and in some ways surpasses) my pen-and-ink drawings of 20 years ago. The great advantage to the work I am doing now is I feel more free-wheeling and open to accidents and happenings than I was with my pen work.

      • I actually evolved into visual poetry (vispo) through my obsession with asemic writing. Abstract comics are by their nature asemic and are not terribly new, but there seems to be a small group of us who are forging ahead with a synthesis of visual poetry and comics.

      • I can’t tell you how excited I am about this, Lin. Up until a couple of years ago I was regularly having my poems published in the lit-magazines and then I suddenly hit this wall of boredom. I just got so bored with my own work and the poetry world in general that I stopped writing it.This though, this is all so inspiring! Thanks for the introduction to it.

  2. Another great multi-panel piece here Lin, all of the carefully woven tracks give this the appearance of some kind of alien circuit board. I wholeheartedly agree with Mr Nash and his comment as to how there are many different levels in your work that demand attention, I always find myself staring at your panels for prolonged periods as I ‘read’ my way through the beautiful tangles and subtle shapes. All the best as ever Lin x

    • I somehow missed this wonderful compliment.It’s always fascinating to me to hear that you occupy space and time with your “reading” that mirrors the space and time of my “writing”.
