I put THIS lil comic up on my tumblr. Just something I made this evening.
I thought that perhaps the difference between a successful artist and a failed artist is that 9/10 times the successful artist has given up.
Today I found a copy of old man and the sea in a second hand bookstore. I sat down in Queen square and read in the cold, not feeling it at all. A sure way to tell a good book....how far you get without noticing that your hands are frostbitten.
Immediately after the great war, a young man digs graves whilst singing Serge Gainsbourg tunes, for some reason I wrote it in French, though I dont speak it... so who's to say how it reads? Parlez vous Francais?
Haven't listened to JOANN SFAR over on Inkstuds yet, but will do so shortly... he's pretty brilliant, I was lucky to go to a talk by him last year in the Institute Francais... an engaging, and intelligent fellow.
I gave this drawing to my cousin on her 21st birthday a couple of weeks ago... more french. ho hummn.
I went to see Gloria after reading some pretty rad reviews. But alas, Whilst it was fun enough, It didn't really leave me with that special feeling. ce la vie.
I've been pretty much inactive online of late. I'm convinced its a good thing. I've probably spent an hour on the computer this last week. I can read books now, which is a better use of my time anyway.
