Ed. 1000. unpag. 17 x 25 cm. Price: 38 €
50 numbered copies with a signed original drawing. Price: 650 €
In more than 100 pages the book compiles Mullican’s “world view”
in an annotated form, as it presents drawing as a means to elucidating ideas.
The artist’s fictive studio, the performances, all of Mullican’s imaginary universe
unfolds in its growing complexity through the book pages. An inventory of notes, charts, sketches, texts and signs; a flux of language that enables the artist to locate his own ideas on a much larger cultural map. The book collects the drawings presented in Mullican's show at ProjecteSD in May 2008.

Try and beat this Mars, 2003

I was interested in the depiction of a physical reality within the fictional framework of cartoons - in a sense, going into where Superman lives, and breaking down that reality. Diagnosing the air and the water that exists within this comic book reality which we, as a culture, participate in. The atmosphere as it exists in the cartoon is related to the atmosphere of dreams and the atmosphere of pictures. Both the cover and the content of the book are from a series of works produced in 1974 around the subject of "details from an imaginary universe."
