Episode Eight: Have You Seen This Boy??
M E E T T H E W R I T E R
David Rice is a writer and animator from Northampton, MA.
Otto (the stout one) is an extreme hedonist, the sort of old-school cult leader who expects his followers to service and wait on him in all capacities and at all hours. A real decadent Roman Emperor type. Tarletan (the gaunt one), the first-born twin, is fully his younger brother's opposite: a glutton for punishment, mortifying himself in reenactment of classic feats of privation from The Lives of the Saints and The Desert Fathers.

A reimagined FANTASIA A and an all new FANTASIA B to be released very soon!
EYE: Cherishes his creature comforts, the majority of which are briny, vegetal, TV-based, or, after some alien fashion, pornographic. Is said to possess a total of four nerve-endings, each impeccably performing its specific duty.
Kayla E. is an artist, designer, and editor from Texas.
CLARION MARIA: Certain that stasis equals death, Clarion Maria is constantly in motion, never more so than while sleeping, when she is dragged nightly back to the site of an Original Trauma that is, at this point, more of a parent to her than any mother or father ever was. While awake and not riven by terror, she conducts a two-car ghost train which, she claims, "is as good a use of my time as any of what all of you probably do with yours."

Read background information, tangential thoughts on characters, and see original scans of artwork.
LYNDA: A long-ago plastic surgery mishap triggered a rare nervous disorder whereby she can't tell the difference between the sensations of wet and dry, and sometimes mixes them up. She carries a bundle of sawdust for purposes of refreshment, and is often covered in practical-joke fluids, gels, and serums, unable to tell until she spots herself in a mirror or on camera.

Lazy Eye Stories is an ongoing collaboration between writer David Rice and artist Kayla E. Somewhere between a graphic novel, a demented children's book, and a motionless small-town TV series, it focuses on the waking exploits and dreaming excesses of a methadone-addicted Eye and the young boy next door, whom he's enslaved and is determined to educate.
