Chris Ware

Pictures from both from “Acme Novelty Date Book” both volumes are in the library. Chris Ware’s sketchbooks. A diverse blend of unflattering self parodies, foul mouthed mice, grumbling, personal resolutions, procrastination drawings (the best kind!) and sketches of people on public transport. Made me laugh out loud in the library a few times!

This weekend’s comics

Nelson came out last year it’s a comic about one character by 54 of different British comic book artists. I like the way they put together a whole story with so many different styles. I flipped through Skim by Jillian and Mariko Tamaki in Gosh! a few weeks ago, then by chance I found it in the library today. I felt I hadn’t been taking advantage of all the comics in the library and a whole year has flown by!

Hugo Pratt

There’s a tremendous book on Hugo Pratt! It’s so big I’ve had it from out of the library for some time… I finally mustered the strength to take it back today and reminded me to snap some of the pages on the way into college this morning. Can’t get enough of these four!

Lone Wolf and Cub

Revisiting the cinematic visuals of Goseki Kojima’s the timeless Lone Wolf and Cub. Also  useful for researching Japanese straw hats.


I just borrowed the Art of The Incredibles and Monsters Inc from the library. I love our library, It’s inexhaustible!

I’ve been looking at the beautiful pastel drawings by Dominique Louis…

And some brilliant and varied concepts by Lou Romano for The Incredibles. Check out his blog:
