I need to send a huge thank you to Seth at The Altered Page!Seth has graciously honored me by awarding me the Excellent Blog Award! I'm totally blown away by this recognition, and I don't think I've stopped grinning since spying this award mention this morning at about 5:00am! I mean, who'd have thunk it! Seriously, I am really, really delighted to even have people visit at my site, let alone give it this sort of recognition... so thank you from the bottom of my heart, Seth! (And if you haven't stopped by Seth's site, click on the link above... this man is talented, innovative, and generous... make his site a daily stop, trust me on this one).
(I guess the expectation is that now I get to award this to 10 other blog sites I feel are outstanding and worthy... how on earth to narrow it down to 10? I'll be back with that list shortly...)
In the meantime...
I receive a newsletter titled Very Short List... described as a "Very Short email with discoveries about high & low culture" ... today's email contains an introduction to graphic artist Stefan G. Bucher. I was prepared to think it was going to be goofy or yucky (I mean, who wants to see someone draw monsters, right?!?)... but I was pleasantly surprised... there's a video which shows, in sped-up time, Stefan drawing his charming little monster... it's amazingly fun to see someone whip out a detailed drawing from an ink blot... check it out... seriously, how often do you get to see this sort of thing? I think you'll smile at what you see!
The Daily Monster
I mean, this is so cool, it even received press in Wired magazine... I'm going to have to go get this issue!
