Aracibo Comic Cover

A monotone photographic image in pink and black, of a rock strewn beach and high chalk cliffs. Over laying the image on the right hand side are is the word "Aracibo" in white upper case block letters. On the left hand side in white letters are the words; "Pure Electricity, Pure Data! A Message to Another World! A Traveller Through the Bleak Emptiness of Space! A Traveller Through Time! A Lover of Small Animals! Content with Their Own Company! Witnesser to the Awful Wonder of the UNIVERSE!"

I’ve made a short run of 15 resin Inaction figures based on my character Aracibo. These figurines are objects of power through which you can look back across vast swathes of time and space. Each figure is handmade and individually numbered, get ’em while they are hot.

Introduction

Hi, my name’s Daniel Locke, welcome to my studio. I’m a graphic novelist and artist. I’m absolutely fascinated by scientists and scientific discovery, and since 2010 I’ve pursued projects that have brought into contact with a wide range of researchers, in hugely diverse settings. 

Much of my practice has been brief based. I often get employed to help communicate a specific set of issues or ideas. This residency is exciting for many different reasons to me, not least because it offers a period of time where I can explore ideas I have encountered during other projects, that perhaps were tangential to the task at hand but non-the-less incredibly interesting. I intend to make a series of new illustrated narratives that will explore the ideas I have collected. The narratives will form the basis of a short animation, at least the beginning of one.

Please feel welcome to look around my studio, at the work I’ve posted up – there are images, videos and text. You are welcome to leave a comment or questions for me in the comments section.

Hope you enjoy your visit,

Daniel
