Yaksha in Parker

I found this incredible black ink at Central World called Parker Quink. Testing it out on a drawing of one of the decrepit demon statues at Wat Arun, I couldn't believe how many colors came out of the same bottle. Quite a surprise. I'm going to have to stock up on some of this before I head back to NYC.

This Is Not A Test. This Is Not A Test.


Since the recession has hit, I have been scoping Thomas L. Friedman's NY Times Op-Ed articles even closer than usual. When it comes to getting a real sense of the drastically changing world as we know it, he has this very comforting way of scaring the ever-loving shit out of the reader.

This is for his March 10, 2009 column.

Golden God

Robert Plant may not be joining Led Zeppelin on a new album and tour but I've got to admit - the man has consistently pushed the envelope with his music since 1982. Instead of becoming a vegas act like much of his contemporaries, the Commander of the Order of the British Empire Himself stays true to his blues roots while surrounding himself with musicians who nurture his non-Western musical interests. Him and Alison Krauss just cleaned up at the Grammy's with their duet album.
It just shows to go ya that even a Brit with an obsession with middle eastern music can conjure up more vivid Americana imagery than most yank musicians.

A real treat for me. I got to take a couple of stabs at the cover for the first issue of Brian Wood's DMZ on DC Vertigo - one of my favs. What is it about seeing NYC ravaged that keeps the people coming back for more and more?
