Episode Summary

Bara by Letterpress
Bara is a genre of Japanese erotic manga for gay men. Since no one has published these comics in English, North American fans of Bara must order the books overseas or hunt down scans on the Internet. I've long been a fan of Bara, so when Blake Besharian invited me to make a series of prints on his letterpress, I decided to pay it homage. I collaged my favorite panels from Seizo Yebisubashi's manga "My Hometown Hospitality" into new visual narratives, emphasizing the transitions, exteriors, and moments of stillness that establish the subtle mood and tone in Yebusibashi's artwork.
