Graphics from 1993

Back in the early 90s I was creating “experimental publications” that made little sense to anyone else but me. One of them was called “Fovy”, and I published 5 issues in late 1993. They folded out to a poster of “Codingseeds” that looked kinda cool. I found a few copies while cleaning up today. Here are some rasterized images of the posters I found on my Mac…

Spontaneous Twitter Times Square Webcam Event

This past Friday I was Twittering away in NYC, and Andrew from England mentioned he was looking at some webcams in Times Square. So, when I got to Times Square I found the webcam he was looking at and Twittered to him I was there, and then a bunch of people on Twitter also tuned in to the webcam and took a lot of pics. Check out the discussion on the forum here and here.

At The Circle – Comic By Frank’s Brother John

Check out my brother’s comic, “At The Circle”, online at Walrus Comix.

The comic is based on true events from January of 1987 when I was making a video movie called “The Evil Farm” with a bunch of local juvenile delinquents in and around Somerville, New Jersey. The character holding the video camera is based on me.

I have never released the video version of “The Evil Farm” online, but I plan to at some point. I did create an audio version of “The Evil Farm” which is available online, but only in lo-fi form. I plan on a hi-fi release of the audio version in the near future. Until then check out the lo-fi MP3 of the 10-minute edited version above (not safe for work). You can hear the actual audio of some of the dialog in the comic!
