Richard McGuire’s Here

NYTimes:

In 1989, Mr. McGuire, then an aspiring New York artist better known for playing bass in the postpunk band Liquid Liquid, published a 36-panel comic that hopped backward and forward through millions of years without leaving the confines of a suburban living room, thanks to the use of pop-up frames-within-frames inspired by the relatively new Microsoft Windows… now he has popped up through a wormhole of his own, with a full-color, book-length version of “Here” that once again transforms a corner of his childhood living room in New Jersey into a staging ground for all of earthly history.

Each two-page spread features a fixed view of the room in a certain year, with pop-up windows giving glimpses of what might have been visible in exactly that spot at various moments in the past and future: from the tail of a passing dinosaur to a 1960s children’s birthday party to a quiet late-21st-century fireside chat.

McGuire is amazing. I’m thinking of flying to NYC just to see the show. Don’t miss it if you’re there.

I pre-ordered the shit out of this.

YOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

I’m in the latest issue of the French magazine Télérama, which is devoted entirely to Shakespeare. I chose the women in Shakespeare as the subject I wanted to illustrate most & so got to do this fun spread on women in general and Lady Macbeth, Portia & Ophelia in particular. Thank you to AD Catherine Le Gallou. (There are a lot of amazing illustrators in this issue, including Christophe Blain & Gipi!)

It’s always the way isn’t it? The very day I put in my order for a Spanish edition of Belgian artist Olivier Schrauwen’s Mowgli’s Mirror, Retrofit announce they’ll be publishing it in English next year, as part of their 2015 line-up. That’s a really nice acquisition for Retrofit, who have been going from strength to strength since their inception, with their slate for next year looking especially strong with books from Andrew Lorenzi, Kate Leth, Laura Knetzger, Laura Lannes, Maré Odomo, Matt Madden, Sophie Franz, Yumi Sakugawa, and Steven Weissmann.READ MORE

“My drawing was not a picture of a hat. It was a picture of a boa constrictor digesting an elephant.”
When I was a child ‘Le Petit Prince’ was my favorite book. Once I made my mom go to the library with me, so I could read it again. While we were driving home I was reading the biography included in the book and I found out that Antoine De Saint-Exupéry died in WWII. I cried the entire ride home. I thought it so unfair that such a beautiful person died in such an awful way, but I guess a lot of good people die at the hands of bad people. At least Antoine De Saint-Exupéry lives on through the little prince.
