Brandl: Knowing Java, he's probably actually got it hanging on his boat, but it changes appearances due to his various "perceptive states!"

Hallo Brandl, How are you? I hope by the grace of the Lord that you are fine. I am still living in Frankfurt studying and working as usual. I just want to stop through quickly and say hallo and I also want to say thank you for your invitation to the Vernissage. I am really sorry that I could not make it but we are going to meet one day that is for sure. Oh, before I forget I wish you a lot of happiness and luck for the year 2003!!!!!!!!!!!! A lot of greetings to you and to all those who still know me.

Brandl says: This is a message dear to my heart! It is from the legendary comic book artist Gene Colan and his wonderful wife Adrienne. He is a hero of mine. From the 1940s until today, he has been a great artist and is even getting better! Check out his message below for some images and a link to his fan group.

Hi Mark, I just happen to drop by my wife's e-mail and saw that you had written a message. I am so happy to hear that you are fine. Great website you got going here, did it all by yourself? Well, we are here in the US, where you should be since you are the American, and we really enjoy being here. It may even be for good, since we married here and have son, who is American ( his name is Giulio Walter ). I don't want to write you too much, 'cause you probably get thousands of messages that you need to read every day. Well, when you find the time, write back to the e-mail address that you can find above. Hope to hear from you soon, and all the best and lots of success. Hugs from Florida,....

Hello Mr. Brandl How are you? :-) Ich glaube ich schreibe jetzt besser auf Deutsch, ich muss mal besser aufpassen bei Ihnen in der Schule *smile*... Also zuerst ein grosses Kompliment an Ihnen. Ich bin jetzt sicher 40 Minuten interessiert an Ihrer Homepage gesessen. Der Lebenslauf über Sie ist einfach sehr spannend, und die Bilder die Sie zeichnen einfach atemberaubend. Ich habe die Bilder mal meiner Mutter gezeigt und sie findet sie auch sehr toll. Nicht jeder besitzt so ein grosses Talent wie Sie. Wer weiss, vielleicht werden sie ja mal berühmter als Picasso *smile*..... Also ich wünsche Ihnen ein sehr schönes "Weekend", und alles Gute an Ihrer Karriere. Viele Grüsse von mir an Amerika :-) Viele künstlerische Grüsse von Hundertwasser, ups, Sebastian Gähler (Klasse B)....*smile*.....

Hey, M. Staff Brandl (which you used to go by), I enjoy the work. Reminds me a little of Jean Dubuffet, one of my favorite painters. I had no idea that after all these years we had followed such parallel paths as artist/critics. (Mark and I once did a sculpture/music installation together in Chicago, called *Sweeney Among the Tribes*.) Good to be in touch!

Hi Mark This is a great site; I like the colour scheme, and I'm also enjoying getting to know more of your work. It'd be great to see more web works too. I love the idea of a free downloadable artist's book -- other visitors might be interested to know that the real, *real version of -Das Auge der Verfolgung- has just been acquired for the Artists' Book Collection at the National Art Library, Victoria and Albert Museum, London, England (where I work). As well as artists' books, the library also has quite a strong collection of comics, so it will make sense in that context too. All the best Elizabeth

I wonder if you are familiar with Chester Gould's work: Dick Tracy (which everyone has a very vague idea about yet very few actually have been able to experience), in my opinion one of the 2 or 3 comics Art geniuses of all (20th century) time, a natural master of frozen action, sharp awkwardness, clumbsy freshness...Douanier Rousseau meets Kafka or something like that. Anyway I just thought your use of framing and scale and the general quality of your work have something in common with his. Coincidence? 'Nuff said, Duncan

Hi Brandl! I'd like to see an addition too, besides the articles mentioned. I know that you do and have done a lot of installations, artists' books, publication pieces etc. Why don't you add some images of these to the site?

---OK! Good idea. We did it 29 July 1999. From your Brandl website crew.

Nice site, but I'd like to see more of your articles.

Brandl says: First, go to his web site and see Gene Colan's wonderful work:
Second, join the Gene Colan discussion group; communicate with a group of fun, art-interested Colan fans, with Gene's wife Adrienne and with the master himself.

(The gif animation of Colan's art is stolen from comic artist Dave Gutierrez's site at
