Wandered around with nothing more than time on my hands
I'm back! I hope you all enjoyed Rikk's special... uh... thing on Friday. I also hope you had a wonderful Christmas, or if it is not your thing, a pretty good Saturday.
I was lucky enough to be given a copy of Flight, the much-hyped (and deservingly so) comic anthology spearheaded by Boltcity's Kazu Kibuishi. It's a gorgeous book, and an intimidating one to give a young cartoonist. The work is of such an enviously high calibur, and most of these artists are only a couple of years older than myself. Vera is even younger. Young artists, you will be motivated to either work much harder or quit and take up accounting. There is some truly wonderful stuff in there, and I eagerly await volume II.
I got some other great gifts as well, but unfortunately, no one was able to find me a reasonably-priced copy of the first Traveling Wilburys album. Somehow, it manages to be out of print despite the fact that it features some of the most famous musicians of the last fifty years. What the hell, people!
