A Schizo-Philosopher's Colouring Book is a playful experiment in what the philosopher Gilles Deleuze might call ?crowned anarchy.? The crown of authority is worn by the format ?colouring book,? in a style that repeats with difference. Anarchy enters via a swarm of figures from philosophical, literary, theological, and art history, each with a quotation. These distribute themselves over fifty-two drawings, producing little machines that are desirous of colour and driven by paradox, whose ?organization of surface ... assures the resonance between two series.?
