"Two Clowns on Tarkovsky": Mark Ehling

(or here's a downloadable pdf if you'd rather)



Mark Ehling assembles words and pictures. He also participates in the internet: He lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota, with his wife and son. 


  1. Well... this is fantastic. Reminds me of the endlessly repeating "Dinosaur Comics" technique -- if the dinosaurs arrested/moved/irritated/transported me more than I'd like to admit. Toothsome art, too.

  2. amazing on a lot of levels. I love how he handles time—particularly the pauses in this "conversation" where implied thought takes place (black boxes, or boxes with no text), which give the reader permission or room or encouragement to reflect. It creates real movement where otherwise there's pure stasis, at least in terms of the imagery (those two clown faces, with no changes in expression).
