Gonzomentary: Clark gets a new TRAILER

HOLY SHIT A NEW TRAILER. WOOO!



Pretty awesome, right? Filmthreat thought so too. (For reasons passing understanding.) So take their advice, get as high as you can manage without dying or puking on yourself -- this will also help you overcome the attention span issue that seems to plague everyone under the age of 40 (over 40, the issue is dementia) -- and watch the movie. Here. FREE.

That's right:

Fucking FREE Gonzomentary movie.



After that, go and buy all of my books on Amazon, which have absolutely nothing to do with with Clark and aren't even comedies. Thanks. Bye.

RAW featured artist


I was selected to be a part of the April RAW show in Philadelphia. I will be featured alongside a number of very talented artists in a variety of mediums, nevertheless, would very much appreciate if you purchase your tickets through this link so they're associated with my part of the show. It makes a difference.

The event is April 25th at 8pm at Lit in Philadelphia -- details at this facebook event page. Please come and enjoy the show! 

I'll post about it again when the show is nigh, to be sure.

Gonzomentary reaches new heights slash lows

From Gonzomentary.com
What results from Warwick’s footage is a “gonzomentary,” a mix of fourth-wall busting filmmaking, mockumentary, Gonzo journalism and whatever else can be added into the mix, which includes: Uncle Binky the pedophile clown; a Christian producer/investor who wants the film to contain no swearing, no drinking and no drugs, right before she has a crisis of faith and becomes a mime; a silent film; Tito the drug dealer, who is actually a British actor (David Proch) stuck in a Method acting Hell and Warwick’s own descent into madness while chronicling the adventures of Clark and J.C. And penises. Lots of penises.

Clark: A Gonzomentary Part 1 is a whole bucket of crazy, and I really enjoyed it for all of its insanity. At no point did I really have a grasp on what I was watching, as it constantly turns in and over on itself. Even when I’d come up with a criticism to lodge at it, the film itself would find a way to address it.

On the heels of the review, perhaps, Clark was officially selected for the running of the LA Web Fest 2013. Wish them luck!

Disinfo: The Words of Traitors: bridging expectation, mediums and genres

Described as “Beautiful!” by award-winning sequential artist and author David Mack(Kabuki, Daredevil, Dexter), Words of Traitors is an attempt at laying bare the inner workings of hope and loss, love and despair, with the raw fury of a complete mental breakdown. At the brink of death, our life flashes before our eyes. Are those memories nothing more than lies? Our memories construct our sense of identity, but can we rely on them?

Words of Traitors art show

From the Gold Standard mail list:
"Come out and join us for our first art gallery opening of 2013! This exciting exhibit will run from Monday, January 14th throughout the month of February with the opening night also being the release party for the beautiful book The Words of Traitors: 7 Lives in Transition. Transmedia artist and Author James Curcio put together a creatively diverse, international team of artists, and collaborated with them in illustrating a collection of short stories with a common theme and singular vision that is hauntingly beautiful. 
Each story was written as part of the overall creative process with visual pieces inspiring the narrative. Many of these pieces are dioramas constructed from a wide array of material enveloping one in a visually stimulating journey into the subconscious. 
Complimentary cheese and wine available at the opening which runs from 5 PM until 8 PM. Copies of books will be on sale with the opportunity to have your booked signed and listen to some excerpts read by James. This work features many other innovative artists including Philadelphia-based painter and muralist James Dupree, Bethany Shorb, Laurie Lipton, S. Jenx, Alexey Andreev, and many more.  
We hope to see you there!"
Not in Philadelphia? Pick up a copy of the book here. (Available in full color hardcopy or digitally.)

FilmThreat Review of Clark

I just noticed that film threat gave Clark a 4 star rating. That's pretty interesting.

I'm happy they caught the layering going on within the film (commenting on itself), etc. Don't want to talk too much about something I participated in because that'd be pretentious and far be it for me and all that. But that's cool. Maybe more people will check it out now.

New Years Announcements

Happy New Years!
Whatever the fuck that means, right? More numbers and categories we throw on life. Time just flows by.

This will come as little surprise for those that know me, but I'm actually working on several projects right now though a lot of it isn't 'above the surface.' I actually forget more and more that I need to write down notes, or type them, for them to exist, and there's some concern that the most massive project I'm working on right now - almost entirely mentally - might just be forgotten. I like to think this explains my forgetfulness, how much I may be thinking about in the fictional or alternate worlds. But I really can't say.

It's at least safe to say that hiatus is over, whether that's good or bad for my body. I just can't help myself.

  • On the 14th of January will be my first entirely solo show, for Words of Traitors, at the Gold Standard in Philadelphia. That will begin, I hope, a process after that month of moving the pieces around the city until they are either all sold, or until I'm sick of them. Whichever comes first. More details on that site. I'm working on building a sort of palimpsest out of one of the dioramas that I built for Words of Traitors and then half disassembled - I am going to re-build it atop itself, and put that unique piece out. As some of your know, this is a very emotional project for me. I hope that conveys itself to others who open themselves to what it has to share. Pick up a copy of the book in physical or digital format through this link!
Press - press release.  (PDF)
  • I'm working on a new illustrated series - very much unlike and also in format maybe a little like Words of Traitors. This is the first book I've worked on that really feels like it's about someone that's just appearing out of the mists. It's very mysterious for me. It's also sometimes a little traumatizing. I woke up from someone else's nightmares just now and am a bit paralyzed by them right now. I don't know how else to explain that. I hope you get to see it and pick up a copy. 
  • Nyssa issue 2 is scripted and in pre-production with Alexey Andreev.  Issue 1 is available within Words of Traitors but will be available on its own shortly. 
  • The third is consideration of the notes I've been sharing on movement meditation practice. I want to do something a bit more formalized and maybe even more useful than what I've done - I need to hear from more of you about it.
