(Print edition Spring 2015. Digital edition out now!)
The purely hallucinatory digest you’ve searched for is here, done in Steven Cerio’s unique cross pollination of tripping visions and skittering twee. Included are previously unreleased stills of Cerio’s characters from his various films with top-hatted eyeball performance greats The Residents, a dozen short narratives, a collection of paintings and collages and stills from his newest film The Magnificent Pigtail Shadow.
Smiling cartoon critters carouse with threatening cutout whales against a shifting comic landscape in Cerio’s unique illustrated stories. The psychedelic meets Saturday morning cartoons in stories with such intriguing titles as “A Private History of Sunbeams and Head Colds”, “A Vivified Sugar Cube Explains the Universe”, “The Add Witch in The Berry Patch” and “Ninny Noonday Ninny”.
