Insert trite comics pun headline here


I'm finally getting back into writing about comics for the free paper I work for. Not sure why the article is in the summer guide - none of these seem like lite beach reading, but then I don't go to the beach too much so how would I know?

Apologies for the dumb headline, I didn't write it. I guess comics writing is still novel enough (or graphic novel enough, ah ha ha ha...) to call for silly punny headlines. Imagine if every article on the symphony had a headline like "Maestro orchestrates a classic," or every emotionally evocative film ever made was described as a "moving picture" (hyuk!).

Art above is from 676 Apparitions of Killoffer. I've already read one review of this book that had a very different take on it than I have. What do you think?

You gotta have he(art)

A very smart person at the DIA decided to hand out foam cut-out hearts to visitors for the Valentine's Day weekend, with the idea that you could lay the heart in front of your most beloved artwork. Well, I'm too much in love with too many items in the DIA's collection to choose just one, so I snapped some semi-selfies of me giving my heart to just a few of my favorites.

No jokes - I'm pretty sure I've touched the little sculpture "Donkey" by Renee Sintenis  every time I've visited the museum since I was in grade school. Love...

Somewhere in Time

...on page 58, actually, of the August 29, 2016 issue of Time magazine. That's where there's a small photo of the Little Library I painted, the one in front of the Hatch Art gallery! So that's a first.


Beside myself

Two recent selfies. I leave it to you to decide if I look like Bryan Cranston or Chuck Norris (as has been suggested...)
