Brendan Monroe – “Walk”

Our latest print here on 1xRUN is “Walk” from California native Brendan Monroe. There is an exquisite poem by Walt Whitman which describes a man drifting away from a cold scientific lecture and simply going out to gaze “in perfect silence” at the stars above his head. Brendan Monroe has taken a page from his graphic novel Islands and refashioned it as the perfectly composed “visual poem” you see here. It is hushed, haunting and minimalist in the very best sense of that often used (and abused) term.

We’re taking this print past the sharp black and whites of the comic (which you can also check out below) with our 3-color 16×20 silkscreen print. Buy it now and get a FREE COPY of the 20-page comic Islands included.

“The comic is about a solitary journey through a dream that mixes astrophysics and bending realities. The main character discovers that things are not what they have always seemed to be. ” – Brendan
