Teaching at the Urban Craft Center in Santa Monica today.
I stayed up late Friday night reading Peter Kuper's Diario de Oaxaca. I loved it. I am a big fan of Kuper's work, what I've read so far. I loved how real he makes Oaxaca feel, not just some fairy tale faraway land. I was following the events at that time period on the radio and in the news. Kuper's drawings and books make them even more real. I do wish there was more in the book. Don't get me wrong, there's a lot in the book-drawings and journal entries. It just left me wanting more and wondering what was cut out, what we didn't see and read. Definitely worth checking out and one that I would recommend on any artist's book shelf.
Kuper's website here.
I love the ideas here for the upcoming holidays. Love the photo garland idea.
Some ideas for comic book buying for the holidays here. Lots of books on it that we have and lots that we want.
On the want list-
Eddie Campbell's Alec (tops on my list!)
Joe Sacco's Footnotes in Gaza (another top on my want list)
Yoshihiro Tatsumi's A Drifting Life
David Small's Stitches
Marc Bell's Hot Potatoe
There are so many books on the list that I have and would highly recommend. It's a long list, but it's packed with ideas. I mean, really, you can't go wrong with Chris Ware, Lynda Barry, Seth,
Richard Thompson, Dave McKean, Marjane Satrapi, Andy Runton, to name a few...
