Swipe File: Robert Sikoryak And Madefire Over Apple Guidelines Comic

Posted by June 17, 2016 Comment

Last year, Bleeding Cool looked at Robert Sikoryak, a comic creator who was turning the Apple iTunes Terms & Conditions into a comic book. It was a ridiculous art experiment and he successfully completed multiple volumes.

He also turned it into a performance piece.

Well, Apple seemed to like the idea.

They have now, with the help of Madefire, created a comic book version of the Apple App Review  Guidelines.

That is just as nonsensical and nonsequitorial as the original.

And a presentation.

Was Sikoryak involved?

No.

In Swipe File we present two or more images that resemble each other to some degree. They may be homages, parodies, ironic appropriations, coincidences or works of the lightbox. We trust you, the reader, to make that judgment yourself? If you are unable to do so, please return your eyes to their maker before any further damage is done. The Swipe File doesn’t judge, it’s interested more in the process of creation, how work influences other work, how new work comes from old, and sometimes how the same ideas emerge simultaneously, as if their time has just come. The Swipe File was named after the advertising industry habit where writers and artist collect images and lines they admire to inspire them in their work. It was swiped from the Comic Journal who originally ran this column, as well as the now defunct Swipe Of The Week website.
