Finding Wisdom In Odd Places



Hey Mr. Grump Gills
You know what you gotta do when life gets you down?
Just keep swimming

Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming
What do we do? We swim, swim, swim
Oh ho ho, How I love to swim
When you WAAAAAANNTTT to swim, you want to swim

I picked up this book last weekend. With Lynda Barry as editor, it sounded very promising to me. And guess what, it’s true. The book delivers, and the content is just as delightful as the promise.

And don’t forget, Eleanor Davis did a great job for the cover.

New favorites to watch out for from now on: Graham Annable, David Axe, Shawn Cheng.

Mmm, Grainey

Been ‘sperimenting with hand-drawn ink on birch plywood. They make a nice card?postcard? – I’m not sure what they are. I like how they come out, but they’re quite a pain to make. Next ‘speriment is to try using wood varnish to add a glossy sheen.
