The Unexpected


Three Word Phrase – Ryan Pequin

Ryan Pequin is an artist who does a very good job of saving his jokes for the last few panels. Mostly done in 3-4 strip snips, Three Word Phrase is a constant rollercoaster of seemingly normal strips that have bizarre and somewhat twisted endings. As innocent as the styling is you do not expect to encounter a panel of a character driving a vehicle literally pieced together using people. The unexpected is one of those things you never see coming and would not expect.

Throbbing Gristle is an Industrial band from Britain who during the late 70s and 80s produced music with the use of synthesizers, drums, guitars, but also found objects, voices and during shows, intense imagery. The album 20 Jazz Funk Greats is one of many albums that utilizes the presence of one thing but delivering something completely different. While the album seemingly starts with a 4/4 groove the music slowly shifts into a whirring torrent of disorienting sounds and noises. The albums art and title were meant to mock the standards of popular music that were being released at the time of its publishing in 1979
