New Loves. 100 Things.

All right, almost a month later, here is another episode of True Loves 3! Hopefully I will get back on track, or at least somewhat back on track now. It seems like the summer is going to be fairly social, which is nice, but not so good for drawing all evening every evening.


I was reading this interview with Grant Morrison earlier, which I liked for his idea of people wanting to be superheroes these days, and superheroes trying to cross over into the real world. And this talk, by a brain doctor describing her experience having a stroke. Fascinating, and ot made me cry by the end!

We had some houseguests this past week and one morning as they were lounging in bed in the living room, they were looking at the books on the bookshelves, and a book about Peter Greenaway was discussed. Thinking about PG before 7am got me feeling like I should make a list or something, and so here was last Thursday:
