Letter to Meathaus: Roger Omar

Roger Omar

Roger Omar sent Meathaus this envelope stuffed with beautiful things from interesting and fantastic artists. And I took an ass-long time to post it. Shame, shame on me. Lee-the-spring-semester-intern scanned some of these and had it set up for me but then I just needed to scan some more because everything is outstanding. So Roger engaged some artists to illustrate six authentic dreams from 8-10 year old children in Valencia, Spain, (and one has six dreams from a child in Tel Aviv, Israel) which remain the text accompanying each illustration, written in Spanish and English.

“Best Wishes,
and happy Dreams,
Roger Omar”

Thank you Roger, for such strange, folding items, part book, poster, or something else. Most of them have the dream text on the opposite side and more images. It is hard to illustrate here that most of the images above where you see only two pages are only a part of the panoramic accordion fold-out illustrations on each of these publications that flow the entire length of the side of paper. Maybe Roger’s got some on a website. Let’s check. So here is the website:

And it looks like you can check out more stuff and maybe get some books on Roger’s 6 Dreams Tumblr and here is a Flickr stash.

And of course the featured artists are Meathaus favorites: Matthew Houston, Thomas Wellmann, Max Fiedler, Wren McDonald, Amanda Baeza, and Roni Fahima.

Yes! Thanks for this exciting comics, drawing, writing and Crumb’s dreams magazine. You’ve got Christoph Mueller doing a comic about growing up obsessing over Crumb then meeting him and corresponding with him, some Mary Fleener, Jay Lynch, Bill Griffith, and more in Issue 30. William Crook Jr. draws some city and landscapes. We took so long to get this post up you can already get your eyeballs over to the Mineshaft website and pre-order issue #31, coming right up! See previous issue of Mineshaft sent to Meathaus here.

Sorry, you’ve got to take the rest of the day off and read comics. Head over to The Digital Comic Museum to read and download free public domain golden age comics that range from adventure to romance to off-brand wonky Donald Duck rip-offs to all kinds of government a-bomb avoidance pamphlets to comics from cartoonist superstars like Walt Kelly, Milt Gross, Dr. Seuss, Dan Gordon, and more, to primitive comics from terrible cartoonists (see Little Moron by Heck and Ilda above). This is why they made the Internet, people. Free comics.
