I've noticed a difference in the way I write stories and the way I tell stories...

  • me (writing): And so she resolved to journey to the ruins of the north, for it was there, in the heart of the castle that the enchanted stone resided.
  • me (aloud): And then she's like, "I'm gonna go north to where there's all those broken buildings and shit" cause there's, like, a castle there in the castle there's this weird magic crystal or something.

Adventure Time with Battling Boy & Jake the Dog
When Battling Boy puts on the Magic Dog Shirt he gets Jake’s powers, but mostly he gets counsel from Jake in playing late night video games.
This is both fanart to Paul Pope and Adventure Time with Mother Box love for Jack Kirby. But, mostly it’s fanart for all the contestants of The Magical T-Shirt Contest I did for Battling Boy’s publisher First Second and judged with David Mack between September and October this year. If you aren’t familiar, check it out! Everyone put out cool entries!
If you haven’t bought Battling Boy, do it! Get it for family, get it for friends and get it for your enemies.
This piece is also for sale.

Today Fresh Air book critic Maureen Corrigan reviews The Bone Clocks by David Mitchell. Corrigan says the novel gives readers “the chance to step out of time for a while and into a world richer and stranger than most of us could imagine.” 

She encourages readers to try The Bone Clocks, even if fantasy fiction isn’t your cup of tea: 

"David Mitchell is one of those writers I’d follow anywhere—even deep into (what is for me) the often-exasperating genre of fantasy fiction.  I don’t naturally gravitate to tales about alternative universes, wormholes, or tribbles; but, there are always exceptions and if Mitchell feels like trying out a semi-futuristic vehicle about immortal soul stealers, I’m willing to take a deep breath, step aboard, and say, in the words of Rod Serling: “Next stop, the Twilight Zone.” 

As in Cloud Atlas and some of his lesser-known novels, Mitchell’s new book, called The Bone Clocks, is elaborately constructed, jumping around in time and narrative perspective.  A friend of mine, who’s also a Mitchell enthusiast, rightly says that his novels are “postmodernist without all the pretentious metaphysics.”  What my friend means is that Mitchell’s technical wizardry is there, not for show, but in service to his themes and characters—he’s a deeply compassionate writer.   In fact, despite its experimental edge, the main reason to read The Bone Clocks is an old-fashioned one:  the draw of a charismatic character named Holly Sykes.”

  • Me: But I have about fifty books at home I haven't read, there's no reason for me to buy these.
  • My brain: Okay, but consider this: more books.

Here’s a picture of Mickey I made.

I’ve always been big on animation, but recently I’ve been studying it a lot more in-depthly. And um, I’ve watched “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” about half a dozen times. Today. A half dozen times today. 

This was drawn on Bristol board, inked with Sumi and a Windsor Newton brush, and colored in Manga Studio. (Fixes in MS too.)
