Trixie’s Trek with Triniti — Moniker Press


Trixie’s Trek with Triniti is a collaboration in both print and music from Jon Vaughn and Sean Christensen. Starting from a few drawings made by Vaughn last summer, Christensen explored the series of abstract marks as a guide for a journey between two characters in which Vaughn later named Trixie and Triniti, a dog and its human friend. The two explore worlds of fragmented landscapes, rivers and architectures, taking pause to swim, read and dream. Reality and its many possible dimensions collide as both time and space morph throughout of the book, creating a kind of non-linear story that can be entered and existed at any point, yet also ‘read’ from start to finish like a traditional comic. To complete the experience the two composed a 30 minute soundtrack of synthesizer, drums and drum machines, adding musical colour to risograph printed gradients and deep blacks of the mysterious book.
