Linocut by Marta Chudolinska, 4 x 3 inches
You know what I’m sayin?
Sorry this post is so long (open images in new window for better quality, tumblr apparently decided to butcher them :().
I don’t really have proper words for this thing, just that it’s about something very important in my life, and after ten years, I’m glad I could finally write this.
Magnus is a great opportunity for the chess world to evolve a little bit : he’s young, he’s charismatic, and he’s got a great public image. I’m really glad that he won, even though his opponent (Vishy Anand) is a fantastic and lovable player as well.
I know this “letter” will not reach him, but it wasn’t really written for him. For other players, yes, I guess? I’m sad that I don’t have much friends left in chess so I can’t give that to the community. So this is for you, comics/illustration lovers from tumblr <3
EDIT : TRANSCRIPT FOR THOSE WHO CAN’T READ CURSIVE!
I just died of adorable
I could never be The Doctor’s companion, because the first thing I would do with access to time travel is go back to the birth of the guy who decided printers should not be able to print if the yellow cartridge is empty even if you’re only printing in black and white, and I would steal that infant from the hospital and throw it in a volcano.
"I am the only librarian at a tiny college library. The 2 or 3 times that students have requested items through ILL, I just ordered the books on Amazon using my own money because the system seemed much too complicated to figure out.
Anyway, these little “donations” make me feel less guilty about photocopying hundreds of zines for free when nobody’s looking. :) “
This person is my spirit twin.

A series of gifs excerpted from Comparative Tests On A Human And A Chimpanzee Infant Of Approximately The Same Age (1932): a film from the Psychological Cinema Register of The Pennsylvania State College that compares the reactions of a normal human infant between the ages of 10 and 14.5 months to psychological tests, and the responses of a chimpanzee companion, age 7.5 to 12 months, to the same tests. The documentary also brings out the effects of different rates of growth and learning abilities and illustrates the capacity of the animal to outdo the child in many tests.

Sketch for new linocut
I’ve wanted to make a no junk mail sign for my front door since I moved into my new apartment… um, a year ago. We get so much junk mail!! This sketch is for a two colour lino print. I’m happy with the drawing but I know the print will look a lot different in the end. If they turn out well enough I’ll make a few extra copies to sell at Canzine.
Homeache is a 20 page comic about an old apartment I lived and loved in for many years in Toronto. It’s a bit of a love letter and swan song to that particular place and that neighbourhood and deals with how temporary homes can burrow inside of us to a place that is never forgotten.
I made this comic because I wanted to have some way of preserving the memories of my very formative years there and to be able to give the same thing to my best friend who shared the house with me off and on for seven years. <3 Pals!
Big thanks to my comics buddy/genius Adam Aylard for helping me screenprint the cover… using THE POWER OF THE SUN! For real, you don’t need any fancy exposure setup. The sun’s powers are totally free!
Picked this up from the Nobrow table this past weekend at SPX. Has Nobrow ever produced a book that wasn’t totally beautiful and drool worthy? Dream press to work with tbh.
