Vibrant Mood Swings
by Scott Lewis
8.75"x8.75" color 44p
To view the party in Scott Lewis’s Vibrant Mood Swings is to enter the room with X-ray specs on. Not the X-ray specs of comic book lore for although you will see a flash of nipple, or a well-honed muscle bulging through a pair of tights, you will also penetrate deeper, beneath the clothes, beyond the skin, into the sinew of the soul (or more likely, lack of one) into the core being of a mixed bag of characters whose egos override any connection to other humans or the world around them. Like the anatomy books he was enamored with as a child, his characters are exposed, both visually and through the stories that are told throughout this book. Within these pages, you will find the love triangles of circus performers, the self-inflicted angsts of self-centered party-goers, and the tragic showbiz dreams of hometown starlets. The personalities that lie beneath have been irreparably damaged by the pressure to be smarter, wittier, and more beautiful than their peers. Vibrant Mood Swings humorously exposes the conceit, hubris, and vanity among a collection of damaged denizens who live in the worlds created by a truly unique artist in the prime of his creative output.
