Text, Type, and Sound

Working with word balloons made me miss working with text. Now not only now do I have a small collection of word balloon drawings, but in addition, a collection of text pieces. I'm uncertain if these pieces would be classified as concrete poetry or sound poems. Dadaist sensibilities towards poetry and typography, over perhaps what conventionally be considered more scholarly aspects of poetry have always held my favor. A good portion of the inspiration for these works also comes from faint memories of some animated Dadaist poetry I saw as a child.  In the next few weeks I should be able to find the time to put at least one of these series into a small book.
