#1-The Swine Smith

| November 1, 2011 | 0 Comments

A character that popped up in one of my zinc-plate prints a couple years ago, I’ve always wanted to get a drawn streamlined version. It’s at a very basic level a creator, of whatever. Weapons, houses, cars, animals, personalities if it starts out an idea, the Swine Smith can turn it into reality. Honestly, for anyone who’s read Supergods or has read enough Grant Morrison books and interviews, this character is the closest I have to come to making a fiction suit. For those who don’t know what that is, it’s essentially a way of placing yourself into a story or image to interact with the narrative characters. If the Swine Smith shows up, it’s there to destroy and re-create into something better and new. Or create new and hope it’s experiment doesn’t fail. The mask is to prevent communication, and to show the Smith as a force of nature, and while he may be a “fiction suit” something kind of used to commuicate, I always feel like there should be more action then dialogue when the Smith’s around.

I feel bad because it’s a little soon to get so abstract but this is just the first thing that came to me.
