Black Flag, The Grateful Dead, The Indian and The Blue fish is the first in a series of novellas from Thomnak chronicling the bands he played in over the last 25 years. While the second novella is a window into the extraordinary dynamics between the five players in Rorschach, Thom’s first novella gives us insight into what a bizarre idea it was for him to join Rorschach in the first place. If the other members of Rorschach could have read this book beforehand, they probably wouldn’t have let Thom join the band.< Less

More > night fire. Iktomi, the snare weaver, Iya, the Eater, and Old Double-Face are not wholly fanciful creatures. Under an open sky, nestling close to the earth, the old Dakota story-tellers have told me these legends. In both Dakotas, North and South, I have often listened to the same story told over again by a new story-teller. While I recognized such a legend without the least difficulty, I found the renderings varying much in little incidents.

This is a book of sketches and drawings made in India, travelling from north to south in the end of the 2012. Beside the ink drawings I added some colour touch using anything I found on the road.... More > This made the original drawings become an interesting melting pot of ink, coffee, holy powders of Hindu temples, coca-cola, Indian tea, food sauces and so on. Despite the original colours, this version of the book in order to be cheaper is realized in black and white tones, so you won’t find any original colours in it. You can find a coloured version of the book with the same title and cover design, but with a considerably higher price. Most of the 190 pages of the book is made with the scans of the trip diary and the rest is some small extra. As always, the original drawings are visible and open in the net and if you want to have a look enter the blog: www.capitan-mas-india.blogspot.com if you like them, you can download, print, modify them and make your own personal book as you prefer.< Less
