Illustrator Chris has been creating comics for five years and hopes his new strip will appeal to sequential art fans of all ages. "Each Freak represents a silly, embarrassing or annoying social cell phone habit we all do - or see others doing - at some point in time.
"It's mildly self-deprecating at heart although we hope younger children will enjoy the characters - even if they don't fully understand some of the sometimes twisted underlying message. Most kids seem to have a cell phone now and (the ones I know anyway) really love being on them as much as possible."
Fone Freaks can be viewed online at www.rokcomics.com and on ROK's WAP subscription service.
Curated by independent curator, Eva Meyer-Hermann, and housed in an extraordinary setting by the Berlin designers, chezweitz & roseapple, the exhibition is organised by the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, Moderna Museet, Stockholm, and The Andy Warhol Museum, one of the four Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh.
Stephanie Rosenthal, Chief Curator at The Hayward, has collaborated on this presentation of the exhibition.
(The cartoon presented here by Malcolm Kirk has absolutely no connection with the exhibtion but we think it's great fun and I'd like to think Warhol would appreciate the subversion...)
