Worst behavior. Remember? This is what happens in the darkest of midnights, the posts I never post, the drawings between drawings.
honestly, i don’t even know. drawn during dbl jeopardy. trebek?
“We all live in a state of profound isolation. No other human being can ever know what it’s like to be you from the inside. And no amount of reaching out to others can ever make them feel exactly what you feel. All media of communication are a by-product of our sad inability to communicate directly from mind to mind. Sad, of course, because nearly all problems in the human history stem from that inability.” --Scott McCloud
Convinced that the other Scott is my dark inverse Jedi antithesis.
This is my own composition notebook homework assignment in progress. Professor Chewbacca reflects on the crayon experience. I’ve inked it and now I’m coloring it in
I like to figure out problems in my composition notebook using drawing and slow writing and non-photo blue pencil to help me with certain problems that defy being approached head on. I’ve found there is something to moving ones hand in a certain way — like a coloring way— while filling in a space and half thinking and half not-thinking about this something you are trying to figure out that invites possible answers to present themselves..
Lauryn Hill - Lose Myself (2007)
Is this the most compelling song ever made for an animated surfing penguin movie? Probably. When it comes up on shuffle I’m always surprised that I make it to the end, but the truth is I love it. It speaks to all my desires. The strange mix of desperate self-help affirmations, confessions, and propelling beats feels.. so delusional — like, truly honest. By the end of the song even Lauryn sounds doubtful about her intentions. Best listened to on horrible, horrible laptop speakers. <3
Joseph Yoakum felt compelled to draw one day. He used ball-point pen on paper purchased at the local Woolworths, then coloured in ‘like a colouring book’ with coloured pencils and polished down with a little wad of toilet paper. In RV 16.

reviewing the Hennipin proofs ;)
Lynda Barry on Letterman 1988 (she’s so cool)
this was a delight to watch.
"i’m right here, dude."
Aw, Lynda Barry's the best. Her radiance outshines every minorly shitty move Letterman tries to pull. ;)
My book, Miss Hennipin, is now available for pre-order. It’s 164 pages in full color and I have no idea how it got that out of hand. I’m really proud of it.
The first 25 purchases will include a signed copy and a small, original drawing from me. There is also a “deluxe” purchase which includes an original page or alternate cover (I made a lot of covers but ended up just ripping off the cover from my last book.)
I hesitate to write anything about Miss Hennipin because I know the words will fall short of the real feelings. ;) But Andy’s made a fully realized, incredibly funny book, and I’m still sorta floored that it even exists. As a publisher, I’m just hoping to do it justice and get the word out. As a friend, I’m overjoyed. First previews are up. Expect more in the coming weeks.
