BEAVER INDUSTRIES - COMIC
I feel as though what the comic art provides is this medium to explore the story in a very close and personal way.
The story moment here is a scene where Milky and Sawyer are walking through *The Robot Graveyard, (see 'Environment' section on the site.) It's quite a stunning scape. It's ethereal and majestic. It's an ancient ground, and you really feel that.
There are these colossal robot Mayan heads that are almost like rusted skulls, just draping over the landscape. It's haunting.
There is much history lost in this place, Beaver Industries wants to forget what happened at the Robot Graveyard. When Sawyer turns up, she has this instinctive feeling that there's something...that needs to be discovered here. That's a great part of the story. That's what makes us human, we have these intuitions...and we're often right, without explaining things with words.
It's such a quiet moment, but it's loud in other ways. I really enjoyed that painting.
Brent Ashe did the logo for Beaver. He has this talent for typifying the story, everything, into a graphical form. Its purest form. I think together it's a great collaboration. I really like the graphic art accompanying. I love the idea of a corporation, or an industry, and that to me is slogans, logos, all worn and weathered for Beaver. It's really special to me, It's so important. It really suggests the presence of Beaver always looming. This industrial giant that brands everything. Beautiful.
