EXPEDITION: On View Now


Over at my website, I'm displaying every page of my book, Expedition.  Please check it out.  It is so exotic.

The online images aren't the most ideal version of the book (it's hard-to-impossible to read the text, or the copious index notes, at this point)but, it's not too shabby either, I hope.  I'm working on solutions by which to make affordable (high quality, extremely readable) physical copies, if there's any interest in such a thing.

If any of you are in St. Louis, a slide show presentation (with audio) will be on display, from May 9 (opening reception) to sometime in August, at the Kemper museum.  Come by if you're also in this city of the damned.

I've been showing this to some of my buddies, and they all love it. Keep up the good work

Rattles my bones. Beautiful nonsense!

Moriachi said...

Really nice work.
I'd definitely love a physical copy.

Flash Strap said...

Gee, thanks for the kind words, all. Thanks for looking- that's sort of where the last two years went, mostly.

I'll have something solid for tangible format collectors soon, I think. Thanks for the show of confidence and interest.

David said...

Congrats. The artwork on the site (without knowing it was yours) always intrigued me. How long have you been working on the book? Congrats on the show.

You know I'll be requesting a copy for my explorers room. So glad you finished it, I really dig the new spacey ones towards the end. You have truly penetrated the vortex!

Let me go a bit off topic. I know your a lot into spiritual jazz (we both are, actually). I came into this 12-hours mix lately. It's free to download here: https://archive.org/details/BlackClassicalSpiritualJazz19552012

You probably already knew about it, but anyway, since I grabbed almost everything you share here I thought to do something to thank you for your work.

I like your work very much, Evan. Hope you get it published; I would certainly buy a copy. Please keep us updated with any news.

I'll add my voice to the chorus of book-requesters.

How long does the slide-show go for? Do you do the music, too?
Ya gotta bring the show to LA (along with the dinosaur videos!)

Flash Strap said...

Hey Mista Fabb: it's about 12 minutes, with a sound-piece accompaniment that I put together. I'd love to show it in LA, you pick the place and I'll wear my best cufflinks. I may have a showing (of the book, the dino vids, and another sci-fi movie piece I did) in Brooklyn this August; if it goes well, it could be a repeatable program. I've never been to LA, so that'd be one of the better excuses I could think of. I've never been to a proper tiki bar, and I hear LA has some of the best.

Book should be available very soon. Still working out the kinks.
