brisk report anthologies

Some evil bastard just sent this link. (no , in fact I see the page has now been removed. no, it's back.):
A graphic novel is a capture of comic book, usually with a lengthy and hardheaded of buildings storyline like to those of novels, and often expected at mature audiences. The idiom also encompasses comic brisk report anthologies, and in some luggage mechanism collections of beforehand in print comic-book series.
There's yer thought for the day, Dirk Deppey.

F rom 2000, sketch for Bacchus T-shirt I drew for Grafitti designs, with finished image. I always liked this sketch and sent it along as an illustration with just about every interview I did since then, but nobody ever used it. looks like it's drawn with a broad point calligraphy pen, plus my favourite flexible nib, finished with liquid paper dashed on in a painterly manner (i used to dilute it with the thinners till it was very fluid).


Tha always perceptive Colman G. in comments the other day was talking about the late Guy Davenport and sent me to the Wikipedia entry for the writer, from where I cut and paste this:
He was rare among American artists in that he was not obsessed with his own image in the world. He could therefore live in perfect privacy in a rotting Kentucky town. Davenport bought Oscar Mayer bologna, fried it, and ate it with Campbell's soup. He died of lung cancer on January 4, 2005.

If you don't like fried bologna and soup, you've never eaten fried bologna and soup.

What a wonderful sketch and painting!

That would make a great t-shirt logo for those rare times when I go out to get drunk.
