I’m good enough, I’m smart enough, and doggone it, people like me!

Looks like it’s finally going to be SENATOR Al Franken! Thanks to Norm Coleman for finally salvaging what was left of his dignity and conceding.

I’m not sure if I would really want to be part of the hypocritical mess that is our nation’s governance, but I hope Al does us all proud. At least the ones of us with a sense of humor still intact. (Any takers in the G.O.P.?) Even the non-Minnesotans among us.

Pictures for sad children.

My buddy Chris Lee posted a comic from this site on FB this morning. Had never heard of it. It is really hilarious in a very low-key way.

At last I am myself (again).

More recent-ish collage. This one’s still for sale at Sera Davis’ gallery The Showroom in Nashville from a show there a while back.

Things we love: Maira Kalman.

Have I said this before? Well, can’t say it enough. Maira’s a rare and beautiful creature, we’re all better for her being here. Her eyes are always and fearlessly open.

I shamefully admit to only keeping up with her fabulous NYT blog sporadically, but a friend posted an entry on Facebook today, and I will endeavor to do better.

Her husband Tibor’s puckish spirit is still an inspiration nearly ten years after his passing.

If I’ve never personally recommended her book The Principles of Uncertainty to you, let me do that now. Find and BUY it here. I do NOT get a commission. If it goes out of print, and you don’t have a copy, you will be sad...and I will be sad for you.

Also, look for her illustrated Elements of Style (yes the drab, if useful, Strunk and White writing reference book), her lovely children’s books, esp. the ones about Max and Pete.

Viva Maira Kalman! Thank you.

I see the danger.

Another relatively new one.
Getting back in touch with my Marvel Comics childhood.

Ceci n’est pas une pipe.

Some (Relatively) New Collage.
Haven’t published any in a while. Poppa needs a new scanner.

Electric Banjoland

My buddy Rob posted this on Facebook. Is it legit? Is it photoshopped? Does it matter? Foxy Appalachian...
