Some art I did for the new James Rabbit album For Ron & Russell Mael.
As usual, Knopfler sounds absolutely incendiary while sticking to that signature clean, almost dull guitar tone. Feels like he just plugged in the Fender and went for it, no stress.

In both the Portuguese and English versions of the lyrics, “it” is a stick, a stone, a sliver of glass, a scratch, a cliff, a knot in the wood, a fish, a pin, the end of the road, and many other things. … All these details swirling around the central metaphor of “the waters of March” can give the impression of the passing of daily life and its continual, inevitable progression towards death, just as the rains of March mark the end of a Brazilian summer.

Maya Angelou in conversation with Dave Chappelle.
On his 22nd birthday, Roosevelt married Alice Hathaway Lee, daughter of George Cabot Lee and Caroline Watts Haskell. They had one daughter, Alice Lee Roosevelt on February 12, 1884. Alice died two days after their daughter was born from an undiagnosed case of kidney failure (in those days called Bright’s disease), which had been masked by the pregnancy. In his diary, Roosevelt wrote a large ‘X’ on the page and then, “The light has gone out of my life.” His mother Mittie died of typhoid fever on the same day, at 3:00 am, some eleven hours earlier, in the same house.

My book, Miss Hennipin, is now available for pre-order. It’s 164 pages in full color and I have no idea how it got that out of hand. I’m really proud of it.
The first 25 purchases will include a signed copy and a small, original drawing from me. There is also a “deluxe” purchase which includes an original page or alternate cover (I made a lot of covers but ended up just ripping off the cover from my last book.)
Chauncey was my favorite comic to come out in 2013. Be real with me and pre-order a copy of MH cuz it’s gonna be an amazing follow up. Seriously, it’s jokes on jokes and the kind of jokes that you like, also the artwork is from a distant galaxy and by a good friend of mine who lives in that galaxy.
