two happy recommendations

My friend Brendan (who happens to be an amazing artist and animator) recommended the following web comic by Ryan Andrews. It’s called Sarah and the Seed.

A web comic? that sounds… ok. But wouldn’t I rather read a graphic novel? It turns out that this short story is lovely on the web. The drawings are fantastic and each page is like it’s own chapter. I was unexpectedly drawn in until the last click. So thanks, Brendan!

Around the same time I heard from another friend, Eboni (who happens to be a writer of a children’s story of her own), and she mentioned a children’s book called When the Sky is Like Lace by Elinor Lander Horwitz and illustrated by Barbara Cooney.

Wow. I immediately connected with the text, which is lyrical and charmingly random (…at the midnight end of the garden) (the grass is like gooseberry jam) (the thing to eat is spaghetti with pineapple sauce),  and the illustrations! The pallet, the sense of place, the characters, everything appealed to me. Here is an illustration from the book juxtaposed with one of my illustrations from Snail Joy.

  

I can’t believe I hadn’t heard of this book before. You would think that I had grown up with it! So thank you, Eboni!
