Senza Nuvole

This 16-pager by Gianpaolo Pagni pays tribute to the comic strip. Without text or bubbles, the story is created here by the rhythm of the panels on the page, and by their alternating figures and colors. Pagni creates patterns, people, and geometric shapes using specially designed stamps of different shapes and sizes, coated in ink and used like a pencil or paintbrush to make drawings. Graphics combine with overlapping figures and mass production to create an abstract cartoon that uses geometric figures and human silhouettes in a personal interpretation of wordless narrative. This one is a contemplative thinker and an invitation to get lost in another world.
