How to look at an actor

Though I studied film in college, I came to TV criticism through comics criticism. In comics, everything on the page is intentional. Character design, line weight, color, panel size and arrangement, backgrounds, lettering: A human being set all those things to paper. Every aspect of the image is considered, deliberate. (Obviously personal style is not entirely within an artist’s control, but that’s basically how it works.)

So when I started writing about television, I realized my writing was informed by this not just in terms of how I talked about cinematography, editing, and the like, but with regards to the actors. The look of a face, the sound of a voice, the size and movement of the body, physical comportment: I discuss these as the equivalent of line, design, and so on in comics. This has played a major role in how I’ve processed any number of shows; for several (Boardwalk Empire, Downton Abbey) it may well have been the central thrust of my writing on them. I’m happy with the writing I’ve done driven by this rubric, but the larger point I’d like to make regards thinking about actors visually. Since television and film are visual media, I think this is valid and vital and, if anything, underdone. But there’s a way to do it without objectifying actors, either sexually or as “other,” as several recent high-profile essays on women actors have done.

If you’re a straight man, for example, write about the physicality of men, to whom you’re not sexually attracted. See how it shapes what you say. How Jon Hamm looks, how James Gandolfini sounds when he breathes: These are important aspects of Mad Men and The Sopranos respectively, but not of your sex fantasies. When you write about women actors, you can talk about how they function physically on-screen in the same way—observing, not objectifying. Do this in the context of their work, not how they look eating lunch. Don’t lead with it. If sex/sexuality is part of the role, fine, but try not to sound like you’re sexting or seducing, and talk about their male partners too. Fold your discussion of actors’ physicality into the show or film’s physicality as a whole—wardrobe, set design, sound design, good old-fashioned shot composition.

We need more film/TV writing that’s about more than plot, dialogue, line readings, showbiz talk, and political subtext. Actors are a part of that. We need to write about the appearance of actors, women and men, without it devolving into Penthouse Letters. It can be done!

ASTRO’s Mansion

(the title is totally not inspired by the video game Luigi’s Mansion)

Imagine going shopping with pocket-sized ASTRO members. You pass by a big doll house, which they totally fall for and beg you to buy. After arguing over the color, all six tiny boys excitedly paint the whole house (which ends up being multicolor because they couldn’t agree on just one color) and arrange each rooms. You all agree to call it “The Mansion” and they become even more excited little buns.

They each have their own bedroom now but they keep sneaking into your bed everynight.

from the series: LIKE CANARIES COLORING

This is a series of spontaneous abstract minimalist pieces created by an initial build-up of material on wood or gypsum panel. I then slowly, and incompletely, erode layers by sanding, cutting, and scraping. This process creates a highly textured foundation for the work. I then apply a layer of joint compound upon which I create the sparse, yet colorful abstract arrangement. Material and media include: house paint, joint compound, chalk, charcoal, paint sticks, oil pastels and face paint.

Alive At Least in the Throngs of the Penny Arcade, 2016 


Inspired by: The arcade in a Reagan-era adolescence. And the boy who laughed when he lied. The girl who ate a live bee. The woman who pissed on the hood of her boyfriend’s Camaro. Ribbons of zoo. Carnival of boom. Bat-shit-crazies, all of them. - J. Kalamarz

flowers are really cool! i’ve always liked them a lot, but i think i’ve grown to love them a lot more these past 1 or 2 years after learning more about their language! like different colors, numbers, and arrangements mean different things! certain flowers have meanings that vary depending on where you are in the world! idk flowers are just really lovely

  • me every other month:wow... the apps on my iphone... they need to be arranged by color.
  • me every other month that is not one of the every other months mentioned above:why the fuck are my apps all over the place? why is the etsy app i never use in the top left corner because it's bright orange? apps should be arranged by theme.
  • me every month:i wonder why i always need a few seconds to fucking find anything on this phone, it seems like i should be used to it by now

hi, wondering if you have any color palette ideas for a peach colored gem? thanks a ton for any input

You mean like how would you arrange the colors? There are a few things you can do with it. You can stick to a monochromatic color scheme and stick with mainly oranges. There will be emphasis on lighter colors, but different values should be there. On the other hand, and I would recommend this more, gradually have your colors go from peach to an orange red color. I feel this would make your design’s colors pop out more. The reds should be the darkest colors with the orange/peach the lighter side.
