Take Shelter - Jeff Nichols
A copy was made from my original apartment key, then a copy was made from that copy. This process was repeated until the original keys information was destroyed, resulting in the topography of a generation.
Artist: Daniel Bejar
When artist David Jablow found a vintage 60′s notepad called Do It Yourself Doodler, complete with what appeared to be the unfinished drawing of a nude woman on each page, he couldn’t help but dive in and complete each one with hilarious results.
Like a fantastic Mad Libs for artists, the suggestively drawn woman, missing her breasts and butt, was obviously intended for more naughty vintage purposes, but Jablow had a better idea. He completed each page of the book with scenes straight out of the pulp fiction pages of the past, including bar room brawls, fist fighting sea divers and Hollywood starlets.
You can now buy a version of the book on Jablow’s site and start doodling away yourself.

It’s always amazing to me how simply an artist can make a beautiful point in so little space. I think that we’ve all felt this way and can relate to the character. That’s why this works so well; this generic person is every one of us.
Scott McCloud would point out that by leaving the character’s face as generic as possible, the artist allows us to insert ourselves more easily into the character’s place.
I love pieces like this—not only does it make a poignant statement on how we perceive the world, but it also makes us feel less alone in that feeling. The comic wouldn’t work if everyone else didn’t privately feel the same.
