Paul Pope’s Psychenaut (w/ a Corto Maltese ramp up drawing for photoset design purposes)
Psychenaut is a work in progress that will most likely end up published in french by Dargaud. Psychenaut has been described by Pope as a reaction to the works of cartoonists like Winsor McCay and Rick Veitch whose work deals with dreams using the “repetitive imagery in [Pope’s] dreams." Essentially, if Pope dreams about hanging out with Corto Maltese, he can use comics to make sense of it, or he could just use comics to document it. Psychenaut is Pope’s "for myself" project that will be finished when it’s finished.
"You do not find the time to write. You make it. You snatch it from the jaws of whatever temporal beast has your minutes and hours clamped between its gnarly teeth. We all fight for our time, whether it’s time for a meal, time for a TV show, time to mow the lawn, time to masturbate wantonly on the neighbor’s front porch so that their cat can watch you from the family room window. Time is not a lost set of car keys. It’s not extra money you find in a pants pocket just before you wash them. Time is a thing for which you fight. And if you want to write, you need to fight for the time to accomplish that task. Because time doesn’t care about you. It keeps on keeping on until you’re mulch for the fucking marigolds. Seize it. Or don’t. It doesn’t care."
