Jon Wong: Monomyth
Monomyth is a look at the parallel, overlapping narratives found in science fiction movies. This book is the result of combining the plot lines of some of my favorite films. Accordingly, the images weave together multiple shapes and colors. Since the movies I chose to watch were typically sci fi films from the 70s and 80s, I wanted to use a color-palette that reminded me of the artwork I used to see as a kid. Nowadays, science fiction imagery tends to stick to cooler palettes of blacks and blues, but growing up I remember oranges, reds, and even purples.
The visual style of these pages provides a perfect backdrop to an artful linking of science fiction with myth. I find myself wishing I could read the work in full.
