Welcome...Now Go Away

Today I'm going to send you somewhere else. Specificially, I'm going to send you over to the blog of Manuel Marino. Manuel has an interesting idea for a blog...he's getting people from various creative fields to write him short essays about their art. Each post is by a different author from a different artistic field. Recently, I've accepted his invitation to write a short piece on comics for him, and it's online as of today, along with a little illustration I did to accompany the piece. Go read it, and while you're there, check out some of the other informative and entertaining pieces he's posted.

When you're done there, you might want to check out this site...found via Boing Boing this morning, it's got a lot of rare and early Bill Watterson art. You can see the early elements of Calvin & Hobbes style in his university work, and it's clear that even then, Watterson was an insanely talented cartoonist. There's also a whole lot of C&H sketches for your viewing pleasure.

When you're done with that, you can come back here if you want and tell me if you think my short piece on comics was dead on the money or dead in the water.
