gorgeous stuff, Craig! Is that a stormy sky at the top of that page? looks beautiful, a bit Jim Woodring-esque from afar. You draw awesome camels (though I knew that already from Carnet de Voyage). by the way, your dutch publisher, Oog & Blik lists Habibi as a 2009 release, will this indeed be the case?
Craig, I’m a huge admirer of your work. I live on the Oregon Coast and have been thinking about moving out and up to Portland. Being a resident of Portland, I was wondering what you think about the schools in the area for art education. I would like to become an illustrator or, even try to do comics if I can. What schools would you recommend looking into?
Your perception of the world is truly amazing. Thank you for sharing your unique gift with us lowly-type literature buffs. Can’t wait for Habibi! Peace, love, and may your hand hold up for decades to come!
Finally… Finally, i got my hands on Blankets. It seems like they are all sold out here and hard to re-order in shops (due January) . I think I managed to buy the last copy in the whole of belgium. Found it in a local bookshop and was so relieved to discover the blue color in between books about contemporary art and suicide bunnies. Every page I turned with reluctance (the last page came too soon!)) – enjoyed every bit of it. Looking forward to new stuff! Thanks.
