Paranoirexia

Some time in mid-2010, I got an email from David Dell'oso, a rad comic artist from Phoenix Arizona, who found my proems, which are mostly written in the third person point of view, worthy of being turned into a comics.

I was ecstatic. And of course, I agreed to team up with him.

A number of emails later, we started Paranoirexiaa collection of visuals and words featuring the cantankerous tales of a sick, strange nymph named Blythe.

This project means a lot to me because I have already written the stories firsthand, which are either based on my own tarnished tales or lucid imagination (and sometimes exaggeration), so they need not be intentionally sculpted just to conform with the comics' theme.

The visuals give justice to the words and the words give meaning to the visuals. Everything is yin and yang.

And because I tell my stories, its lead pin-up resembles me in a lot of ways: she's into analogue photography, smokes like a muffler (I only used to, though), and is all sorts neurotic.

(Fact: I first used "paranoirexia" as one of my Tabulas blog's name, way back in 2007.)

David has been constantly working on new panels and his outputs always amaze me. A bunch Paranoirexia pieces may be found on his online sketchbook. You may see them here and here.

He also helped me with an illustration that I needed for an essay on ambitions, which I wrote for New Slang. To somehow return him the favor and, of course, to highlight his other talent as a film photographer, I interviewed and featured him on Lomography Magazine's Analogue Lifestyle: Digital Is Dead.

Come 2013, Paranoirexia is already on its 10th installment. Just recently, we also had its first printed version. David has mailed one to me a few days ago and I am so stoked to see it!

I'm really lucky that David found me on the weird web world. I haven't put my heart into Paranoirexia lately (I'm guilty!) but I adore our collaboration very much so I promise to write again.

Meanwhile, here are a couple of links to more Paranoirexia, where you can know more about our super-heroine in eternal distress, see how David sketches her from scratch, and, of course, read the monochrome panels of paranoid anorexia:
