1. Project of the Day—Do you like prog rock? What about the band Yes? Probably if you answered yes to either of those questions, and especially if you answered “yes” to Yes (hahahahaha.) you’ll be interested in this project, which features that band’s own Jon Anderson in collaboration with violin virtuoso Jean-Luc Ponty. They, as you can tell by the picture above, are recording an album.

    Back to the Stone Age

    Here it is, the complete story that is my contribution to the latest Cloudscape Comics anthology, MEGA FAUNA. MEGA FAUNA is a 200+ page full-colour book of awesome all-ages comics with stories about pets, wild animals, and monsters galore. I’m really happy this book is nearly ready to go to press. Comics for kids is something I want to do a whole lot more of, and my only regret is that I didn’t have time to do more than five pages while MEGA FAUNA was in production (I was busy teaching kindergarten at the time). So I packed as much awesome into those five pages as I possibly could!

    MEGA FAUNA is up on Kickstarter right now. You should check it out! There are so many good comics crammed into this book!

  3. “I’ve always liked the idea of making hard objects soft. You know how you really love something? I used to have these strange obsessions when I was a kid. I was obsessed with food, I had some kind of thing with food where I wanted to pair it with all the cuddly animals that I had, and I obviously could never find cuddly cans or cuddly pizza. I had these ideas for toys and I was so disappointed that no one was making them. I guess it came from that. My mum taught me how to sew and suddenly this whole world opened up. ” —Lucy Sparrow, creator of Cornershop, a store made entirely of felt.

"Walking into the city, you found narrow alleys between the buildings with dripping pipes overhead, discharge flowing in gutters, people stripped to the waist in their underwear working in tiny factories, the sound of metal pounding metal, butchered animals, unlicensed dentists, a two-man rubber plunger factory, carts stacked with steaming food, everything mixed together. It felt unreal (especially in the early days), and yet totally normal to everyone living and working there." —Photographer Greg Girard, on life inside the City of Darkness.
