IdanCarre's Profile Picture
M. McGuire

Finding my own style of comics and really intrigued by plaster.

General Artist Inspirations: Thomas Cole, Nick Cave (soundsuit guy), Barbara Hepworth, Auguste Rodin, Henry Moore... lots of others but those are the ones that come to mind right now...

Inspirations for Comics Specifically: Scott McCloud, Daniel Clowes, Eddie Campbell, Guy Delisle, Art Speigelman, Matt Madden, Jessica Abel, Chester Brown... those are the big ones that I can think of. I actually met Matt Madden! He's a super cool guy!

History of my art:
When I was a child I made Idan Carre, Cori Benson, Kellum Kester, and Watson Carre, who were all involved in an extensive plot involving wizards and dragons and fictional animals of all sorts. Later Idan and Cori evolved in to a pseudo gemini/two-spirit identity of mine. Other people have written fan fictions about them that make me so happy. I love them both dearly.

When I was in high school I was pretty lonely so I made a 50 year plot line of some Sci-Fi people. Primarily it retells the life and times of Michael Knight, an ex-military member who gets roped up in the ongoing war with aliens in space but he's really just looking for love and a clear conscience. It's obviously more complicated than that, there's some art and journal entries about it here somewhere...

Now that I have some real friends in the world I try not to concern myself with the egoless pit of imagination that used to eat me up in high school. Now I'm trying to figure out where I want to go next with my comics and sculpture.

I did illustrations for the book Mission 51 and I contributed to the MetaComic Mr. Polly.

General information:

I'm a math major at the College of Wooster. I play keyboards in the band Rat Queen and I play the melodica in the college bluegrass band. I also love philosophy. I'm particularly interested in the idea that personal identity is something of an illusion, as it relieves certain aspects of existential suffering. Fancy words aside, I like to think of my current self as a close relative of myself in a few months, but not really the same person. So death isn't such a strange things when you think of yourself that way. It's just another one of those transitions that you go through all the time.

I really love the way Robert Nozick writes, everything is so crisp and clear. He once distinguished 8 different possible meanings of the word "meaning" in an attempt to determine the meaning of life.

I'm antipostmodernist, but not in an antagonistic way. I take after Jordan Peterson in that regard. Really my first and foremost priority in life is the pursuit of truth, both in action and in words. That is all. But it's not all because you have define truth pretty carefully before that means very much. Anyway.

I deleted all my social media except dA. dA is where I learn from other people and keep a digital copy of all my work in case I lose some of the actual papers. If I ever produce anything of magnitude I'll probably re-emerge in the digital dominancy hierarchy games, but for now I'm steeping in history and philosophy and studying the finer details of using a brush to illustrate comics.

If I was going to die tomorrow I'd call everyone I ever loved and tell them how meaningful their lives are. Your life could be meaningful too.


Swigart High Comic
Bob Greenhalgh is going to be a junior in high school in the fall of 1952. It was going to be like any other year, until he met Mary-Jo in the summer. She's just moved to Swigartville, and Bob can't keep his eyes off her. Bob, you're spilling coffee everywhere- Um, Bob? BOB! 
Another baby card 1958
God forbid if they wrote a card that didn't have a rhyming jingle inside.
Tried to use the ADF chute to move this process along but it ended up shredding the card so we're back to using the flatbed... *sighs*
probably from 1958 again since its for the same baby as the last baby card I uploaded

Back of card;
