I just finished reading this over my dinner a few minutes ago and I’m stunned. Flooding with emotions. Thinking a lot about what we put down on paper, who reads it, and what effect - big, small or at all - this has on all of us whether we’re generators of or creators of content. Wondering - why do we even do these things? Not in a defeatist way by any means, either, but as a means to understand ourselves and what the purpose of these expressions are. Holy hell.
Currently reading. Really love this cover design.
Crumb illustrates Bukowski. Match made in heaven.
Carrie. After the novel by Stephen King.
Been thinking a lot about writing lately. Been starting various stories and strips but mostly just giving up on or getting bored of them within a couple of pages(example pictured above). Been doing a lot of sketchbook drawing and, ultimately, setting my sights on more ambitious projects.
I have no idea what I’m doing and in this I have to remind myself of what I’ve often told myself in these times of self doubt: That fustration is a consequence of growth.
Cover illustration for a collection of Stephen King short stories I’m currently reading, Night Shift. Can’t figure out who the illustrator is but I really, really love this.
