Un Regard Moderne and Me

I was in Paris last week for a Moebius exhibition at the Fondation Cartier, which, by the way, was amazing and inspiring. I will post more on that at a later date.

But my second order of business was visiting one of the world’s most stupefying book stores. Un Regard Moderne is stacked toe to top with fantastic and stimulating books, books, and more books. If you are a bibliophile, as I most certainly am, or an aesthete, also guilty, you will love it.

I went twice and on the second visit Mr. Noël bought the books I had hauled over from Cabbagetown. If you are ever in Paris and fit one of the two aforementioned categories you must visit.

Moon Blood

Feel the blood coursing through thy veins.
How it pulses.
Like the ocean’s tides.
Does this blood also rise or fall,
according to the Moon’s feminine caprice?

Five Divas

This illustration will be in next week’s New Yorker. Film Forum is running a film series of five Japanese divas throughout the month and this will accompany the write-up.

This is my first illustration since moving to Atlanta, so no more Film Forum for me. The move is also responsible for the lack of posting for almost a month now. We still don’t even have internet, don’t ask. So far we have been too busy unpacking and getting situated to get much else done. A very little exploring. A bit of sketching here and there. And trying to stay honed. Moving is arduous.
