Congratulations to Jason Little who recently finished his online serialization of the latest Bee story “Motel Art Improvement Service.” It’s available from Jason’s comics page, a treasure trove of inventive wonders.

Reading the story over again, I was reminded of what a unique, uncategorizable gem Bee is. It’s cute, sexy (NSFW in fact), brainy, slapsticky, and subtle, all at once. Definitely worth sitting down with to read the whole thing.

    Thanks for opening my eyes to this, Scott. I just finished reading “Motel Art Improvement Service” from start to finish and was blown away.

  2. I just realized today I can comment on these postings! I love how a lot of comic artists are sharing a portion of their work to draw you in – try before you buy so to speak. I clicked on this link (Jason’s style is easy on my eyes), read the Shutterbug Follies (I’m a photographer outside of work) teaser on-line and picked up the full book to find out how it ended. Certainly a great way to pull folks in.

    Also, wanted to take a moment to say that I keep all of your comic-related books on the shelf and pull them down for artistic inspiration. You should collect royalties every time I tell someone about the pyramid, and the range between realism and symbolism – great stuff. The secret, of course, to applying anything good to everything else is to just remove the specifics. It’s amazing how a lot of the ideas you discuss are applicable to all areas of art!

    Finally, I think it was cool to have your daughter in the Slide:ology book. It’s helped me in a lot of presentations recently!

    Sorry for being so partially off-topic here. 🙂

    It took me a second to recognize the artist from Shutter Follies, but as soon as I did I tore through the comic. I absolutely loved it!
