My art comes to life

Jakob Vala at Tin House has created an incredible video to promote my book, and he has quite literally made my art come to life. This is really amazing...

  2. That is awesome that Abby watched it too. That girl is gonna have a good eye for art when she gets older.

  3. this is wonderful. i love the care and attention they at tin house have been giving your book. it is all so well deserved. i'd like a film to be made with the whole thing - all the quotes and all the images, i would relish that!

  4. Lizzy, Tin House has done an amazing job with this book in every single way. It was a true joy to meet them all face to face and actually talk to the people that spent hundreds of hours wrestling this thing into a gorgeous book.

  5. It really was, Buck! It makes me want to try my hand at something similar. When there is time...

  6. I think this is an amazing idea and I've always promised myself that I would read Moby Dick cover to cover in my lifetime. Now I can really do it. Congrats! I'm going to purchase your book. Will you come through Chicago on a book tour?

  7. Larissa, thank you, that is an amazing compliment and I truly hope my humble drawings can live up to it. So far, there have been no plans to come to Chicago but it is one of the few big cities I am able to drive to in a relatively normal amount of time so I am hoping something comes up there. I will post something on this blog the instant it is planned.

  8. Cool! Chicago would love to have you. My good friend runs a bookbinding/art studio and he said he would be happy to host you:
