much to my delight, an advanced copy of this nifty book arrived in the mail yesterday (pictured here with Mr. Pig)! what is this nifty book, you say? why, it’s Rainn Wilson & friends’ Soul Pancake, a book inspired by their website of the same fancy name. both the book & the site urge you to – as you can see on the cover – “chew on life’s big questions,” “speak your mind, unload your questions,” and “figure out what it means to be human.”
in the summer of 2006, i wrote the first draft of my novella, Yesterday, in Lotus Shoes: an epic of tiny proportion, an allegory-adventure about Lotus Girl. all along, i intended it to be an illustrated novella. four years and many iterations of illustrations later, and still not one set of drawings or paintings has seemed quite right for the job. i pick the manuscript up every now & then, edit a little bit, and then let it marinade a little longer. one day, i’ll finish it!
i made this series of six pencil drawings shortly after i wrote the first draft. i kind of like these as stand-alone drawings.
