Sketches of Sound 14: Brian Hagen

Every month since April 2010, has hosted a project called “Sketches of Sound,” in which illustrators are invited to draw a sound-related object. I post the drawing as the background of my Twitter account,, and then share a bit of information about the illustrator back on Call it “curating Twitter.”

For the 14th entry, Brian Hagen offered his services. Hagen is a cartoonist and illustrator; a survivor of Los Angeles, New Orleans, and graduate school; and now a happy Cincinnati resident. He loves the silent comedies of Chaplin and Keaton, and long walks in the subconscious. His most recent published comics appeared in the anthologies Twelve-Way with Cheese and Feast (Yer Eyes). Currently, he’s working with underground comic pioneer Justin Green (whose “Musical Legends” series of comics I edited in Pulse!) on their webcomic, Pen Grenades.
