By the sea-o-, oi, fish and chips, eel pie, surf.
Ok, no surf, not really, just angry little English waves.
Enjoy your summers, you leetle monkeys - and Freddy, I
hope that the parole board approves your release. Again.

The new Lynda Barry book is available, now from
Drawn and Quarterly and you should get your hands on
one as soon as possible. It’s gorgeous. Between auto-biographical
comics are these incredible collages that ask questions that will
confuse your creative brain like- “What is an image?” or “Can we
imagine something that we can’t remember?”
Lynda’s comic-drawn self says “The thing I call ‘my mind’ seems
to be kind of a landlord that doesn’t really know its tenants.”
Through these pages, filled to the brim with funny drawings, comic
anecdotes from her past and collaged bits of books, stamps and
childhood writing, Lynda explores herself as an artist and challenges
you to do the same.
The back of the book even has some activities you can try to get your
imaginative ideas flowing like making a word bag - you collect a bunch
of words and pick blindly from the bag to spark a thought.
When I look up Lynda Barry on Wikipedia, it calls her “one of the most
successful non-mainstream American cartoonists” because of her weekly
comic strip Ernie Pook’s Comeek and her numerous publications. Her
book The Good Times are Killing Me was even made into a play.

continuing in the - Everything Changes - but Nothing Ever Really Changes - series - here's Dieter Ram's iconic 1970 Braun ET 44 calculator (which you can still buy at select hipster design stores) and the new iconic iPhone , which can also found at hipster design outlets too.
See ... there is symmetry in the universe, OK maybe not.
